Have you recently been let down by one of those old school, hometown breakfast and lunch restaurants that rest more on its reputation than, at the very least, maintaining the original quality? If so, JD's Restaurant in downtown North Attleboro, Mass., happily counteracts that disappointment by always focusing on the food, service and value for the money.

Totally unconcerned with its appearance --- the plain look of this old restaurant looks like a cross between a diner and greasy spoon dive -- JD's knows its value to North Attleboro, and that's why the place has been around for such a long time and is often packed. Yes, the decor and furniture look like remnants from the 1960s, but many people seem to enjoy the unpretentious look, as well as dining in a place that is consistently friendly. As we know at many other restaurants, you might get personable service one day, and the next time you have the waitress or waiter from hell (and it could even be the same employee!). This never seems to be the case at JD's -- the small staff is well-connected with the regulars and quite welcoming to outsiders like me. Owners -- and husband and wife -- Sandy and John Wilson have been in the restaurant business for more than 35 year and truly make things "homey" at JD's.

From the successful businessman to the family of four, North Attleboro residents sit at the counter or at tables, chatting it up with Sandy, John and staff over cups of coffee.  Some favorites include corned beef hash, cornbread, pancakes, omelets,
soups and other specials of the day, hot dogs, meat loaf, hot turkey sandwiches, cheddar burgers and club sandwiches. Much of the food is made from scratch.

So, if you love old school downtown restaurants, JD's might be your place if in the North Attleboro/Attleboro/Providence area. Along with the equally good Mackie's Restaurant and Country Store (just a few doors down), JD's Restaurant definitely delivers on its hometown restaurant premise.

JD's Restaurant is located at 67 North Washington St., North Attleboro MA. Tel. (508) 699-0259
