I am never disappointed at the "Jet". Great food. The atmosphere is amazing. Inside it feels like a small town diner but during the summer the outdoor patio is so nice.

Service is generally pretty quick. I like their salads but the burgers and the lasagna are both good too.

We've been going to "the Jet" for years. The food is reasonably priced and the quality is very good. Typical diner fare. The breakfast is especially good. Be sure to order the sweet potato fries and don't forget the honey for dipping. The decor is...More
