“Chicken Salad Chick is so good!! Their new croissant melt was mouth watering good. My girlfriend got the classic chicken simple salad and she loved it. This place never disappoints. Also, the signs inside the mens bathroom are adorable and funny so I had to share.“

“Stopped by for lunch with my co-workers today and I got the Happy's Signature Flatbread . Delicious! Also got an order of tots and a side of the Hot Honey Garlic to dip them in. Delicious! Highly recommend! The various games and activities that surrounded us in the large venue space looked pretty fun and I could see myself going back with some friends to try those out.“

Home cooked meals were just like my Mawmaw's used to make. If you are ever in Murfreesboro and want something different for lunch or dinner to take back with you, this is the place! We will be back.“

“I found this gem of a restaurant via a Reddit thread discussing the best food in Murfreesboro.I brought my daddy here for a late lunch/early dinner today and we were beyond pleased with our decision to try Jeff’s out!I love the feel of the place— very tidy and clean, very homey. They have beautiful family photos in the space and cute decor that all communicate that this is a family establishment, which I love. There is power in the dollar and I believe fully that where you choose to spend your money says something about you. Why go to a chain restaurant when you can support a family-owned, local business like Jeff’s?We were greeted heartily by the kind people working in the front of house. You can’t find service like this anywhere anymore! I love feeling like I’m entering someone’s home, having a meal prepared by loving hands.We both got the chicken and dressing with gravy and it was fabulous. I had spinach and cabbage, both absolutely delicious. My dad said his sides— pintos and sweet potatoes— were wonderful also, and that the sweet tea was amazing!And y’all, let me not forget to talk about their BREAD. My dad got the flapjack and said it was just stellar, that he’s never had anything like it. I tried a homemade yeast roll and found it to be just perfect. When I tell you I will drive the 40 miles from my home just for this food, I am not lying!Thank you, Jeff’s! We had a great time with y’all today.Parking: Ample parking outside the building. Wonderful location.“

“We had a party of 12. We waited 1 hour 15 min to be seated. Four of us got our meal right away, the 11 of us had to wait 1 hour for their meal to be served. 1 didn't get her meal until after the 11 finished eating and she opted to get her meal to go as to not make the rest of us wait for her to eat. Absolutely worst service ever. Usually we get great service here so not sure what happened on this day.Vegetarian options: Carrots“

“Tried this place for the first time since its opening in the Boro. Went for a date night before a movie. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and enjoyed what we ordered. Nachos good. Chicken fingers good. Chicken and beignets good. Beer on tap not good! I ordered an IPA and my husband got a wheat beer. Both were flat as could be. It immediately reminded me of John Taffer and Bar Rescue, not only because if you've watched the show, you know that the one thing that can make or break your experience in a bar and grill is the quality of the beer pour, but also because this building was featured on the show when it was MT Bottles and Cans. But honestly, that was the only thing lacking as the food really hit the spot for a Nashville hot chicken experience. The staff was friendly and our server was great. She checked on us just enough times to not be overbearing, was attentive and professional. The ambiance was okay. There seemed to be a lot of younger workers kind of meandering around working but not doing much. It caught my attention just because the overall decor and atmosphere is good, just not very festive. I kind of wished the music was a little louder, the staff was more upbeat, and the vibe was kicked up just a notch. I think if the staff presented a little more of a party vibe it would completely change the experience for the patrons. Overall, this was a good time in the Boro and I recommend if you're wanting some friend chicken and pub food.“
