Because of my journey to and from work, I’m often near Jim Bob’s Chicken Fingers on Frederick Road. It always seems to have a steady flow of customers. After eating there this week, now I know why.
The restaurant has a lot of seating. It’s bright and clean with Bible verses mounted along the back wall. But if you'd rather not get out of your vehicle, I saw a drive-thru on the way in.
The person at the cash register was friendly…and patient, since I hadn’t quite decided what I wanted when I went to order. In addition to chicken fingers and wings, the restaurant serves burgers, catfish and shrimp. There’s also chicken salad, chicken wraps, jumbo salads, starters and sides and desserts. I was deciding between the catfish and chicken fingers, but settled on the chicken. But since the chicken tasted so good, I’m going back for the catfish.
My chicken plate, which I ordered fried, came with five chicken fingers, fries, slaw and toast. But I added a jalapeno cornbread. I was as surprised to see jalapeno cornbread on the menu as I was to see catfish, so I wanted to try it. And it was excellent. The heat from the jalapeno doesn’t hit you at first, but it does hit it you. It’s not too hot, or I wouldn’t plan on ordering it again. I really enjoyed it. As I did all my food. The special sauce didn’t taste like it was standard sauce either.
The cost of my plate, with the additional cornbread, was $9.62 with tax. The person at the counter asked me if I wanted the cornbread instead of the toast, so that’s an option. But I wanted to add the cornbread to the chicken plate.
Now that I’m in the know. I’ll probably get two jalapeno cornbreads.
