First time here. We ordered appetizers and drinks. The guacamole was overly doused with lime juice. The fried mushrooms were over cooked. My beer was ice cold though and friends cherry limeade was very tasty! Our server was fantastic! My shoes encountered chips that had dropped to the floor underneath the table (sweep after each seating?). All in all, a MEH experience. UPDATE AND REBOOT! Came back and had their 4.00 margaritas (have Lindsey make them-best margarita ever) and 75 cent boneless wings. Best wings and Cole slaw I've had in a long time! Bella (our server 1st time) came by and said hello (makes one feel special!). Jeffersons is now our new go to place! We ♥️ this place! The employees are very special! Do give everything a second chance, you might be pleasantly surprised! Back to Jeffersons! Yes! Lindsay was our bartender! Yay! BFF had a margarita and I had a lagunitas ipa. We shared a turkey club, fries and Cole slaw. Really love this place not only for the food but the employees make you feel like family. I hope the owners know how blessed they are. Stopped in for a margarita and a bite. Lindsay was there so you know we enjoyed her amazing margaritas! I had the fried mushroom appetizer which were great! BFF had the wings which she said were delicious. Love this place! Ok, I have no idea what's going on with Jeff's west but today was a minus 10. Gal pal and ordered the spinach artichoke dip and salsa with chips. In my experience, the spin/art dip is to be served hot 🔥 it wasn't even close. Lukewarm on the outside and cold in the middle with parmesan (not fresh) sprinkled on top. As far as taste it was ghastly. No flavor, just a cold gelatinous mass of whatever. The "salsa"? I'm betting a jar of frito lay tostito salsa can be found in the refuse. Very disappointing. Usually this place makes my taste buds do a happy dance. Today? Not so much.
