Their breakfast menu includes favorites such as french toast, pancakes, and omelets with a variety of toppings to choose from. Among these favorites, JC’s menu offers any other breakfast dish imaginable. The lunch menu offers traditional diner fare, with hamburgers and a few Mexican dishes.
While ordering off the menu offers delicious standbys, trying a new dish from the daily special menu can prove to be rewarding.
