We were traveling and our friends suggested that we stop here for dinner. Every one ordered their fried chicken and the plates came out heaped with chicken. They all said it was delicious.

We have eaten at Jarrett House for many, many years. Their fried chicken is the best anywhere! The breading is delicious, flavor extends into the chicken. Sides are also delicious, especially the fried apples. Portions are very generous. Wait staff is friendly and attentive.
