    Re: Jethro's coming to Johnston

    Got me some Jethro's leftovers in the fridge from tonight. Can't wait for tomorrow. Didn't read the link, is it going to have a specialty?

    Also heard that this will be the last Jethro's built in the Metro as the owners don't think the market will be able to handle anymore.

    I'm surprised they are building another one. It's ok BBQ, but there are numerous better, and cheaper, BBQ joints in the metro area IMO.

    The only one that I would say is better is Smokey D's. But after Smokey D's and Jethros, there is a large drop off.

    Re: Jethro's coming to Johnston

    Heard they're adding some seafood to the menu. Personally I think the classic menu at drake is by far the best. I also have leftovers from tonight. But it's from Smokey D's. also a really good BBQ joint

    Smoky D's and Woody's Smoke Shack are my favorites. I always leave Jethros happy, but thinking I could have gotten better BBQ cheaper. But I still enjoy the atmosphere of Jethro's more. More tv's for watching games. Woody's is nice to eat outside on a nice day, but the place is tiny.

    I don't think Jethros in Johnston is good news for Cactus Bobs

    Pretty sure all the restaurants have the "classic menu", its just that the newer ones have other items such as cajun, and seafood.
