After seeing the poor condition of the restrooms, we decided to leave. Later we read about tire slashing in parking lot over labor dispute with another trucking company. I would not stop again.

We went to JD"S last night for dinner, the fish was over cooked and so was their tenderloin sandwich, I had the turkey wich was cooked on the grill after they had fried bacon. We have gone there quite a lot and as time goes on the food gets more horrible. That was our last visit. The owner was there... More

I ate here and enjoyed their egg mess and pickles. However, I did not like the walk into the restaurant itself, a dirty truck stop. The floors needed mopped like 3 years ago, and the walls needed cleaned as well. Once you're in the restaurant, enjoy the stares from these small town people, making you feel unwelcome as they're sitting... More

I worked at the Diner for 7 months. The people I was fortunate enough to work with were absolutely amazing, and I loved the experience. Its a place where everyone knows each other, and everyone is like one big family. Not only with just the people that work there, but the regulars, too. I got so used to the nice... More

Pretty good value and decent food. Not to mention good sized portions. I like the atmosphere because its kind of unique being that its decorated with a semi truck theme. Not a bad place if you want a decent relaxed meal.

I had just moved to Niles and tried it out. Service in the diner was good. Food was good. As I was going to leave I noticed my passenger side door was dented in. Everything but that was good, haven't been back since.

The menu choices and quality of the food made up for the "smell" that greeted us when we entered the door--once you entered the restaurant area it was much better--a good cleaning or perhaps Clorox down the drains might do the trick to take care of that sewer gas/ musty odor of the convenience store area.

J & D's is a truck stop located at the intersection of US-12 and US-31, a convenient location for the traveller. It is very popular with semi-truck drivers, as evidenced by the 100 or so semis in the parking lot at any time of day or night. The food is slightly above average, and is typical American fare. As is... More
