We enjoyed J D's Pub last evening. We got their half-price burger special which was excellent. In my opinion, people who visit historic Smithville can't go wrong going one block south to eat at this restaurant!!!

I've tried almost everything on the menu and I have never been disappointed. The best buffalo chicken cheesesteaks ever. Great prices and delivery is always fast. This is my favorite place for sandwiches in the Smithville area.

Good food at reasonable prices. Check out their nightly specials which offer a tremendous value. Young waitresses are very friendly and competent. Numerous large TV screens to watch sports and news. Entertainment on weekends.
