Just stopped at Jess’ Quick Lunch for the staple Two hotdogs with everything, fried and a sweet tea. Sitting at the lunch counter completes the experience.

I have been eating at Jess' my entire life but hadn't been back in many years until recently. It was as good as I remember. They have the best chili dogs and chocolate milkshakes! Very reasonable prices too!
