If you miss how good burgers used to taste, go to JBs. They're perfect. Warm buns, good meat cooked expertly, good cheese, all the fixings. They also have other sandwiches and hot dogs too.I'm just too into the burgers to try anything else!

This restaurant was referred to us by a shop owner while shopping in the downtown area. It was a smaller establishment , but the taste was huge! Best burger I have had in quite some time. Well worth the visit!

Visited JB's for the first time since moving here to Elizabethton, TN. Absolutely great burger and fries. Wonderful smiling faces made us feel welcome. Definitely will return again. Got to try the Hot Fudge Cake next visit. :)

My husband & I just enjoyed a delicious bacon cheeseburger & grilled cheese with fries. We loved the atmosphere & liked they offered indoor & outdoor dining. Service was friendly & JB is actually in the restaurant talking to customers.

We eat here every chance we get. It is a great place for philly cheese steak sandwiches, burgers, barbque, milkshakes, ice cream and other classic favorites. I high recommend eating here.

Been there several times. Sliced pork wonderful. Burgers well done but flavorful. Ice cream delicious.

JB's - something very classically American about this restaurant! A diner-style, but specializing in ice-cream shakes too. Plenty of options - we had corn dogs, with fries/slaw. The shakes are tall, thick and delicious.

I don't understand why this place is a local favorite. I came here once before and the burger was cold, the bun was stale, and the fries were overdone. I decided that maybe I caught them on a bad night, so tried again. This time...More
