Great Jones Cafe Restaurant Review

: With its slack-jaw fa├žade, this NoHo restaurant could seriously pass for a roadhouse in the rural South. The place will satisfy cravings for turbo margaritas, po' boys, jambalaya, honey-smothered cornbread and good old-fashioned rock 'n' roll. There's not much more to report, except that the food is cheap, the portions big and the screen door is bright orange. Brunch is also a scene, and, beware, the coffee will put hair on your chest.
