    We used to go to Deacon's about twice a month and then the portion sizes got smaller, the prices went up and the food got a bit inconsistent eg spuds would be crispy and perfect one time, listless and droopy the next. Also sometimes quite spicey, sometimes not. Have only been early this summer so things may have changed again.

    Only been to Jethro's once, to try the huevos rancheros. Here's my post: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7320...

        That's too bad... we've never had service problems there knock wood.

      Tried for Jethro's today for brunch. Drove by ..... line was out the door onto the sidewalk :-(

      We would have waited but Jr. was turning his head 360 from hunger ..... oh well, had to settle for The Cosy Inn (ha I remember them from the late '80s).
