Great Latin fusion food. Husband and wife team run a great establishment. Unfortunately for Jonesborough the restaurant has moved to nearby Johnson City. Not far and worth the trip.

Nice restaurant and atmosphere; food very good. Service not so good even after several visits. We don't go very often, especially if someplace else to go! Jonesborough is a quaint town everyone should visit.

This is a nice blend of Cuban/American. Only issue is the restaurant is moving soon to Johnson City.

This was my first time eating Cuban cuisine and wow...it was absolutely amazing! The food was so fresh and delicious, full of flavour and texture. I could not recommend this place highly enough! Staff were really friendly and the place had a very relaxed atmosphere.

Friday night, the snow that is expected, is taking it's sweet time to arrive. The air is crisp, and I feel like a walk down town. There is nary a soul on Main Street . Jonesborough is all quiet, quite devoid of life. But ahead I spy a sign that says : Open: The Dining Room. I can always count... More

New Years Eve lunch. This was a great way to end the year. We tried the soup of the day which was a white cheddar zucchini oh so yummy! My better half got the crab sandwich. Keep in mind she is from MD and is extremely picky when it comes to crab. She kept saying "They get it, it's not... More

While we eat out frequently, we seldom go here - about once a year. The food is fresh and prepared. On our recent visit, the seafood dishes our party ordered - the grouper, shrimp and scallops tasted fresh and the sauces were excellent. The pork dishes were also very good as well as the salads and the zucchini cheese soup.... More

We had a group of about 15 people eating here one afternoon and the service was outstanding. All orders were exact. And the hamburger I had was huge and tasty. A couple of people at our table had the fried bologna sandwich and said that it was also really good. I would recommend this place for good food and excellent... More

It didn't look like there was too much to choose from for dinner before a storytelling show. However, I must say this was a wonderful surprise. The service was excellent and very professional yet friendly. The courses came out in a timely fashion but never rushed . The food was very good, though the sauces around my black grouper had...

We love the Dining Room! We would give them a 5 if the service was a little quicker. However, we've learned to never want to dine and then go to the theater afterwards. The service is extremely slow, although we have no complaints w/ the waitstaff! So, we go there as an end to itself, stay unstressed and thoroughly enjoy... More

We have been in operation in downtown Jonesborough, TN for over 8 years. On March 25th, 2017 we closed our doors temporarily to move to our new location in Johnson City, TN.

We will be opening our doors this spring at our new location at 202 E. Main St. with our new name "Sabores". We will update this information when we have an exact opening date.

Thank you for your patience.
