This listing is incorrect, it is JJ's Eatery and Ice Cream. We were there in May and decided to stop in and have a burger. Well the others had this "huge" fresh patted burger and I had "fried bologna" sandwich. Was delicious! The staff are so friendly and really nice. Don't forget to save room for the ice cream!

I stopped into this store to get some ice cream for my family and myself. It only took a minute for me to fall in love with everything. There were big beautiful cakes, ice cream, bbg and so much more. I was there on a Sunday and they had a lunch special. All the food looked and smelled great. I... More

My family of 6 went to eat at JJ's Eatery and Ice Cream and the service was wonderful. We had there famous burgers with fries and we topped it off with a milkshake which made this experience the best we ever had in Jonesborough. We will definitely be coming back.

My family of 7 recently visited JJ's on a very busy Saturday. Not only was the staff amazingly friendly but the food was outstanding. The cheeseburger exceeded my expectations. We even had dessert!! We were very pleased with the service and food especially during such a busy time and us being such a large party, the food and service still... More

I had the most amazing experience at JJ's! The food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing. We especially loved the old school feel and ice cream bar. The chocolate milkshakes are to die for! I will for sure go back soon, especially now that they serve paleo meals during the week.

A tour group spent the day in historic Jonesborough. We did not want to overwhelm the wait staff even though they were expecting our large crowd for lunch. Our table of four ordered the special of the day for Monday which was chicken salad wrap and ambrosia. We wanted to have time to explore the shops before boarding the bus... More

Love going to the general store for an icecream or for lunch. The selection of icecream flavors keeps us going back for more.

Such a neat building and set up but the "old fashioned" rootbeer floats were made w cheapy ice cream. Less than stand out service. Cold fries. I wouldn't go back next time:(

We went for a storytelling dinner evening. The storyteller was a perfect balance between wit and drama. Dinner was candlelit with fresh flowers and there was enough food for each of us to eat for 2-3 meals. We had both the chicken and roast beef which were perfectly cooked and seasoned. We would definitely go back if we are back... More

Located directly across the street from the Washington County, Tennessee, Courthouse you will find the Jonesborough General Store and Eatery. Established in 2012, we occupy a building erected in 1871. The Eatery is an American Style grill items and we have a Blue Plate Special everyday except Saturday's. We also have an Ice Cream Parlor where we hand dip our old fashioned Ice Cream. Enjoy from a variety of flavors, toppings, milkshakes, etc. Stop by and you will step back in time. Our Grill closes one hour before the restaurant closes, but we stay for our tasty ice cream.
