This is an absolute gem, hidden away on Victoria Street in Kitchener. The waitress was so friendly and polite. The food was fabulous, I tried the Nature Schnitzel, which was the traditional breaded schnitzel with mushroom gravy. It was as big as my plate and...absolutely delicious. Even though I am from out of town I will definitely be returning. Lovely place, lovely service, and amazing food!!!More

My wife and I were visiting family for the first time since the pandemic started and it was blazing hot so our hosts moved their plans from their backyard to indoors at J&Bs. We're glad they did! This family restaurant is another Kitchener-Waterloo treasure -...tucked away in a small mall on Victoria near King. I had the Holstein Schnitzel (veal schnitzel with mushroom gravy and fried egg) and my wife had the Salmon with Dill Sauce - delicious! Large portions. Home fries with onions. And I had the sauerkraut on the side. All well done. Service was friendly and prompt - we were there off hours. Yes' we'd go back and highly recommended!More

I cannot say how good I feel when I step in and order food here! I tried many dishes, from goulash soup to pork chops and meat skewers. My favourite one is the Vienna schnitzel with home fries and sauerkraut...I know what a good schnitzel...is as I grew up with them and I am making them myself. The quality of the food and the service are second to none. Good job, guys!More

Schnitzel not great - it comes in a box to the restaurant! It is just heated!! No on site breading as was expected! Waitress very likeable and accommodating to this diner. Would not go back.

Our favourite Serbian restaurant sadly just closedown after 20 years due to COVID-19. We found J&B on Google maps and thought we would give it try. We have drove past the location for years but never noticed it. As the restaurant is quaint in size,...reservations are a must. We started with shopska salad, mixed grill platter for 2 with homestyle fried potatoes for an entree and finished with palachinke and baklava. The platter for 2 could easily feed 4 people. Also included was a basket of bread, homemade tartar sauce, and chopped red onion. The food was flavourful, the service was excellent with a family atmosphere. Their website says “The Best Kept Secret in Kitchener” and it is! Can’t wait to go back.More

Amazing food, delicious, clean, not a good choice for vegetarians. If you are a food lover, you will definitely enjoy the food no matter where you are from.

Yes, Dorothy, there is such thing as good fat, once in a while, and don’t overdo it! This place is very friendly, efficient, too. The salads were large and served exactly as requested, soup of the day – house made and yummy and the menu...varied. It’s not The Edge (separate review), but it’s OK. **More

Enjoyed the Lepinja Sa Kajmakom and some chicken wings as appetizers. Later we enjoyed Vienna schnitzels with gypsy sauce, mashed potaotes with gravy and sauerkraut. The portions were very generous. Our waitress was super friendly and surprised my wife with a slice of delicious cake...as a birthday treat. I'm glad I got to finish it! A nice quiet place to enjoy a European lunch or dinner.More

Thank you for a great meal. We had a group of 24 for dinner and we all enjoyed our meals. Schnitzel was excellent. Service was awesome and very reasonable price.

Stopped by on Saturday for a schnitzel lunch. We did not have very high expectation when we saw the restaurant from outside. However, when we stepped inside I was quite impressed by its nice decorations and ambiance. The schnitzel was in big portion and taste...very good, plus it is priced reasonably. The service was attentive and friendly. We will go back again for sure.More
