    The Thanksgiving turkey platter here is amazing! A nice size portion of succulent white meat with mashed potatoes and baby carrots was perfectly prepared and served. It is on the menu year round.

    Awesome comfort food at this retro style diner. Matzoh ball soup is solid as well as the ALT sandwich. Chicken and waffles is a big item and the chocolate cake and milk is decadent.

    The chicken and waffles are yummy. Put some syrup on the waffles then take a bite with chicken and the gravy. Super fantastic!

    The "Thanksgiving Dinner" is a must-order, with turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and some of the best cranberry sauce I've had the pleasure of eating -- and I'm a cranberry sauce connoisseur.

    mac & cheese is amazing but if you want a good salad the MTO Market Salad is HUGE and delicious - I got both!

    Head to Jones when you're in need of serious comfort food. Try the southern classic chicken and waffles, and the always good grilled cheese and tomato soup.

    The food isn’t too pricy. Start off with the Mac & Cheese and the Grilled Chicken Sandwich and finish it off with the Key Lime Pie.

    Great for brunch. The monkey bread and build-your-own Bloody Mary are non-negotiable.

    Waitress is nice, music is catchy, but too loud whilst eating. Turkey club not my favorite, but good proportion, and pulled pork was just okay. hipster spot w/heavier price tag due to the location.
