If you haven't eaten at Jumbo House, you don't know what you have been missing!! Jumbo House is located in Columbia,TN and has been around for YEARS! Locals and out of towners alike keep this litle place hopping. They serve up the BEST hot broasted chicken, taters and slaw you will find anywhere. Their hamburgers are everything and more that...

All I can say is, if you haven't eaten here, you must give it a try! They do things the old fashioned way. Real beef burgers, loaded with fresh toppings are among our favorite items. These are in no way your typical fast food burgers, but are closer to what you'd have at an old fashioned outdoor cookout. We usually... More

We saw Jumbo's and decided to stop in and we were not sorry. I normally do not like burgers and their's was delicious. Also heard they have great chicken salad.

The only negative thing I can say about the place is that it's chaotic to find a table(you're on your own) when it's crowded. HOWEVER, whatever struggle that may be is well worth it, as the food is fabulous! Growing up on the shore, I have a bias against catfish. Almost always, it has a muddy taste to me...then it's...

I had been waiting an eternity to try this place. The day finally arrived and I was not disappointed. The food was delicious and the serving sizes appropriate. The lounge was a bit long but moved quickly. Wait time for my order was not bad, either. Can't wait to go back.

While traveling to Bardstown KY we decided it was time to eat. I got on Trip Advisor to guide me. My advice is to get off the highway and grab your burger right here! I had the best tasting burger I have had in a very long time, and I will say the same for the milkshake full of strawberries!... More

Good Old Fashioned burger place with diner atmosphere. The burgers are huge and just like you remember from childhood. Relaxed, friendly, family fast food.

Excellent burgers, catfish or chicken. Family owned business that has been around for decades. Prices are more than reasonable and service is great. A hometown favorite.

Very flavorful burgers, this local favorite of many will become a frequent stop for me. Only one flaw, every burger comes with cheese, yuck. I even specifically ordered no cheese and got the slimy yellow tire patch anyway. Luckily I was able scrape of the offending yellow goo.
