J's Place is a great place to satisfy your Chicken and Waffle craving! They make some of the best anywhere!! Aside from that, their Fried Catfish, Oxtail, Ribs, and other entrees are also very good!! Highly recommend J's Place in Bako!!

Good food and friendly service. I love their fried chicken and meatloaf. They have good side dishes too. Their collard greens, Mac and cheese are very good.

The food tastes just like old southern cooking. When I don't want to cook, I know I can be satisfied with the choices I make at J's.

I don't know. If I remember correctly, they do accept credit cards so I'm sure AmEx should be accepted. Heading there again this year for the holidays. Can't wait! Hope things work out for you and enjoy J's!
