Their breakfast biscuits (sausage, ham, egg, etc). will rival Hardees in tasted. The chicken (breasts or strips) are very good and the Jalapeno Poppers (Jalapeno Peppers stuffed with cheese) are fantastic.

I've stopped here several times when I've needed to grab something quick to eat. Their food is mostly fried and seems to be fresh. They have a wide selection. Their desserts are also pretty good. The downside is that every time I go in there the staff seems about as friendly as a rock.

I see all the wonderful reviews on here and feel obligated to tell you that this store has changed owners. With that change went the long time employees who treated their customers like family and actually cared about caring for you. It is no longer the "neighborhood store" that it once was. They really need to change the name because... More

It seemed ridiculous to have a gas station/convenience store on the list until I actually got food from Jiffy Mart. The food is cooked and ready so no wait is necessary. They offer fried chicken including livers & gizzards, fried potatoes, pizza, sandwiches and fresh baked cookies. We ordered a small order of livers and a small order of gizzards... More

This place is always packed and have the best fast food in Athens. I love their chicken fingers and fresh made salad. We pick them up at least once a week.

It's a gas station- it's a deli- it's a meeting place for people....it's an Athens tradition. My favorites are the turkey with smoked cheddar (heated in the microwave, not toasted) on white bread with Mayo. Also the Heath Crunch Cookies are to die for!! They have quartered potato logs that are fried and called "Jo Jo's" The fried pork chops... More

You could run into any one at Jiffy and you will.. Everyone eats here! Jiffy is large convenience store/small grocery outfitted with great food served by friendly folks and located west of Court House/Athens LC Hospital. It is worth the drive if transiting the area on I-65 or Hwy 72. Breakfast, lunch and dinner items to go, no seating.. If... More
