This was a great place to eat but has closed in a restaurant capacity. Jolene still does catering and the facility can be rented for meetings and get togethers.

The food is home cooked and very flavorful. Great selection: lasagna, spaghetti, meatloaf, mashed potatoes, wonderful homemade noodles, green beans and more! Dessert bar is fab! The best pumpkin roll I have tasted in a long time. Very pleasant staff, I will return! Love this place,

I have eaten at Jolene's several times with friends. Their choice, not mine. The food on the buffet is dried out and over cooked. Food ordered off the menu is not terrible. It's more in line with what you would expect a not very talented or imaginative home cook to produce. They have a salad bar, but it offers little... More

Good food at a decent price in a cafeteria style setting. They also have a buffet. The mashed potatoes topped with chicken and noodles is my favorite.

Jolene's has great food and is very welcoming. I always get the buffet and have never left hungry.

My sister-in-law and I met in Kenton for a little shopping spree at Enchanted Forest (country/primitive) and we decided to try to find a reasonably priced place with home cooking. We found this place with the help of the internet and also a little pamphlet about Harding County. We were greeted with a smile and a fabulous buffet. Today on that buffet was pork, baked steak, bbq roasted chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, macaroni & cheese, oven broiled potatoes, rice & brocolli, pies, cakes, Texas sheet cake, salad bar and a bowl of ice cream for $6.95. Dinner prices are $8.95, unless you are over 60 and then it remains at $6.95. I didn't feel like I had to eat lots to get my money's worth as you do at some buffets, but I still left there feeling full, like I DID eat too much. It was delicious and everyone there was very friendly.
