Local spot that has been here forever. Nothing fancy but consistently good food. Something for everyone... breakfast to dinner on the menu.

Loved every minute of our mid day dinner at J&L. Great food and reasonable prices. We chose the senior menu- the serving was plenty for 1 person. We will be back!!!

It's just a short drive off the interstate and a great meal. We have stopped here for breakfast several times on our way from WI to CO. Local crowd, fast service and good food. So nice after a long night of driving!

Spending a week in Sterling you want comfort food. I ordered breakfast for dinner. Within 5 minutes, my crisp bacon, eggs, hash browns and sourdough toast were ready. Nice home town spoon! Staff was really attentive, fast payment, and I was out.
