It's a damp Saturday afternoon and most the small number of patrons at Jimmy Jack's Classic Rock Cafe seems to mostly in their 80s. Pretty Katrina the bartender is giving a long list of specials over the phone to a customer who calls the restaurant for them every day. She has to check the prices on a couple of them, with others the customers chime in with help. The food is old school American comfort food -- the kind you would serve if your customers were white suburban retirees, and the drinks are simple and stiff -- the kind you would probably drink if you lived nearby and this was your bar.
There's a stage and lots of empty space, so it's clearly a different sort of place on a Friday or Saturday night. I'll need to drop by sometime when I can see that side as well. 13428 Washington 99 Everett, WA 98204 - (425) 745-1590 jimmyjacks.com
