Jackie's in Silver Spring--very disappointing

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.
