J.R.'s Restaurant Review

: The baby-back ribs at J.R.'s live up to the restaurant's motto, "tender as mother's love." Parking is limited, making the take-out option attractive, but there is seating, either at the horseshoe-shaped bar, where the staff will make you feel at home, or at one of several tables. There are plenty of sandwiches, made with beef brisket, pork shoulder or chicken links, served with a choice of side. For the more determined diner, stick with the full dinners, with the choice of those namesake baby-back ribs, roast chicken or a combination of meats. Make sure to try the baked beans and corn muffin, and save room for a piece of 7-Up cake.
