Looking for a unique Jacksonville experience to be served with your meal? Here's seven local eateries worth considering.
7. Jerome Brown Barbeque and Wings
During the 1970s and early '80s, Jerome "Get Down" Brown was known for spinning records at juke joints and Stake City. After 30 years on the grill, his name is now recognized as a northside fixture known for its signature BBQ ribs, chicken wings and sauces.
His sauce is said to be so good that the business became the center of an unfortunate, but unusual heist in 2015. An after hours barbecue bandit got away with thousands of dollars worth of sauce, chicken wings, ribs and baked beans.
While the food is great, what makes Jerome Brown's a dining unique experience is the way you're served. The eatery occupies a former Skinner's Dairy drive through "milk house". Here, you order your meal and recieve a ticket at one drive through window, only to circle the building and present your ticket to the same person to finally get your meal. If you like barbeque and you're up for a different way of it being served to you, Jerome Brown's is definitely worth a visit. Just remember, the place is pretty popular, so expect to wait a while in line.
