After watching Jethro’s Fine Grub on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, FoodQueen and I just had to come here to try their amazing food. They are known for their breakfast and lunch. On the weekends, lines can be seen outside. We waited about 40 mins to get a seat, but we seemed to pass the time quite quickly.
The interior is quite small, so its not a place for large groups, unless you line up extra early to snag a few tables. It’s best to come in 2’s or 4’s.
Just like all places Guy Fieri visits, he leave his trademark somewhere in the restaurant. This can be found close to the door.
Coffee ($2) is a must in the morning.
Chocolate-Chip Banana Bread French Toast ($10) is topped with caramelized bananas and whipped butter. Read what FoodQueen said about the french toast here: http://thefoodqueen.com/2012/01/10/jethros-fine-grub/
The 426 Hemi ($11) has a 6oz burger topped with pulled pork, melted cheddar, mayo, tomatoes, and pickles. On the side I got a salad instead of fries for no extra charge. The pulled pork was not saucy at all and had a great smokey flavour that worked well with the burger patty. The price is really good and I was quite satisfied.
Overall, great comforting food, but the question is, are you willing to wait in line? I would totally wait again since the food is cheap and their dishes are a bit unique.
