Jackie's in Silver Spring--very disappointing

  • 1

Had looked forward to Jackie's after reading and hearing things of interest.

Alas, 1. The atmosphere lacked the pizzaz we had expected. 2. The food was of poor quality--the only good news about this is that the portions were so small there wasn't too much of the bad food ! The vaunted fried chicken was a particular disappointment. 3. We were overcharged for the wine. 4. Oh yes...and service was mediocre.

Very disappointing indeed.

  1. I had a similar experience there a few months back. Very pricey for very average fare in very small portions. I thought the problem was I missed the fried chicken. from your report, no need to return.
