A standard for Columbus. Simple breakfast menu all day in a great 50'scatmosphere. Has not changed, and that is GOOD. Their Belly Buster is their signature dish...

I ordered two eggs over easy, which were fine, but they served pre-cooked bacon & burned sausage patties which didn't taste like much. Very over rated and certainly not worth the 1hr. + wait time. Don't arrive around noon on a weekend!

Love the old OSU football and other memorabilia. Service is great and the food is fantastic. Try the Reuben omelet or the peanut butter chocolate chip pancakes for a real treat. Service is very friendly. You might have to wait but it's worth it!

We were a group of 9 people, patiently waiting to be seated (looking quizzically at the group of four at a twelve-top with two empty four-tops next to it). Most of us have worked service, so we know how it goes during the brunch shift. When we asked for an estimate on the time, we were rudely told it was... More

This was the first trip to the Jack & Benny's located at Don Scott. It is a small place located in a hangar at the airport. The service was very friendly and even with a small restaurant it was also quick and efficient. The food was good diner fare. Had the "Jack buster" which was tasty and definitely filling. The...

Good Breakfast place and cool low key atmosphere. I had an Omelet and I know they are hard to mess up but this one was damn good.

An extremely small "hole in the wall" neighborhood breakfast spot. The rule of thumb here is sit down, order, eat and move on. Jack and Benny's has a loyal following and is particularly popular with the OSU crowd as reflected in the photos and memorabilia along the walls, despite being somewhat removed from the heart of campus. The menu is... More

Went here with my daughter, usually the place is packed but today we could walk right in and sit at the counter which we did. We were promptly waited on. We actually sat in front of the chef making the food which is good to see. The menu is extensive with choices all in my opinion very good. They had... More

J&B is a small restaurant with average service but incredible classic american breakfast foods for crazy cheap! You'll spend more time waiting for a table than you will actually eating, but it's a great local favorite. Also because of its small size they ask that you eat and leave instead of linger and have conversation over 70 cups of coffee.... More

Got take out for brunch. Pancakes were huge and very good. Breakfast sandwiches also good. Great prices. Got take out because we thought it would be crowded, but around 12:30 on a Sat. we could have gotten a seat.
