The food I had at JC’s (706 E. Main St.) was not as anointed as the wall led me to expect–it wasn’t bad, but for the same type of thing you should go to Thompson’s (previously Coleman’s), where the fried chicken, beans, and collards were much better (though my collard gold standard is still The Know). Also,Thompson’s has beer. JC seems to stand for the Savior, and there is no alcohol at his (sorry, His) establishment. By far the best thing I had there was the banana pudding. It was my first banana pudding experience so I can’t really compare, but I thought it was good…probably not jello pudding, and the cook told me repeatedly that I was lucky to have gotten it fresh.
But still, I’ll be going back. Michael helpfully commented that the breakfast sausage is great.
