15 year’s since I last visited a JB’s a restaurant, during my college day’s it was my early morning go to breakfast diner – this early evening trip didn’t allow me to compare today’s breakfast with year’s gone by; place easy access parking, greeting and sitting well done, a busy robust atmosphere, clean and spacious; menu done well in visually presenting food items and a friendly server explained well the dishes; overall service was great and speedy; food arrived in good sized portions - however - we were not satisfied with food taste or quality, especially the sauces for salad and ribs which exhibited and tasted high on corn syrup/starchy manufactured types that we found in most franchisee restaurants as opposed to family oriented ethnic food restaurants in the area - net result was a bit of digestive difficulty throughout the night – in general can say most interesting and discerning aspect of the food restaurant industry in the US appears to be a heavy use of corn syrup dressings and flavors used to cover-up the genuine taste of foods. I can recommend it for fast quick family US styled restaurant for the service and quanity but only average and not for a wholesome eating experience.

I liked that they had breakfast and I felt like having Eggs Benedict for dinner. Eggs were hard boiled. Yep hard. I asked for 2 more poached eggs and got over easy. Supervisor never came to the table. I saved the hard eggs and told waitress to show the manager and her response was "I told him" Will never go there again.

I stopped in for a breakfast after being in Boise and on my way home in Meridian Idaho
They had a very good breakfast buffet. The food was fresh and was kept full all the time I was there. The price was very good for the good food that I got. The help was very friendly, and kept my coffee and water full. Will be going back someday, and will tell my friends and family about it.
