I stopped in for a couple cocktails and decided to have a burrito- I asked for no onions or bell peppers and for the beans with cheese and rice on the side. I then asked for two more small plastic cups of salsa. When the bill came I noted that they charged $0.75 for the cheese on the beans (maybe... More

Jack's is a traditional Pub style bar and grill. They have an absolutely huge beer menu, with a wide selection of lagers, porters, ales, and stouts in bottles and on tap. They also have quite a few ciders and wines and of course mixed drinks. The food is top notch comfort fare. My husband ordered the greek chicken and said... More

upon arriving, we had to wait 15 minutes before even getting drinks. I ordered a salad with no meat and over half of the lettuce was wilted and inedible with bacon in it. the huevos rancheros looked more like nachos - the eggs were hard to find and not that much. when we went to check out the waiter neglected...

Great place to eat. Many different menu options to choose from and good craft beer selection. I would definitely eat here again if I make it back to Johnson City.

I like eating at locally owned establishments when I travel. This place disappointed me. I thought the prices too high for the food. We had 4, 16 oz drafts, appetizer, buffalo chicken wrap and a small (very small) steak. Side dishes with the steak looked like cheap, frozen veggies. The guacamole was...strange. It was glossy and didn't really taste like... More

We had a recommendation by a local to visit this restaurant. We were not disappointed. There was a wide variety of food to please our whole party, and it was all delicious. Generous portions, as we all took food home with us. Highly recommend!
