What we ordered: The Jethro’s Reuben. Classic corned beef Reuben on pumpernickel with swiss and “special sauce”. Basically the special sauce is the sauerkraut pre-mixed into the thousand island dressing; you can’t have one without the other. I thought the sandwich was very good, piled high with corned beef and grilled nice and crispy. (I wouldn’t have been able to take a picture of the inside of the sandwich without making an gooey mess. Take my word for it). The large steak fries were HOT and crispy.
My companion customized a burger with cheddar, bacon and sauteed mushrooms. If you’re a fan or charbroiled burgers, Jethro’s has the best!
Service: The service at Jethro’s is usually fast, even when there is a busy crowd. Drinks are refilled when needed.
Overall Impression: Jethro’s is a good place to go if you like a casual atmosphere, they are also accommodating toward larger groups. Good food (excellent burgers) and good service.
