Jonesy's is a diner smack dab in the middle of Main Street. It is everything you would expect a small town diner to be. (I often call these places hole in the wall local spots---but only out of pure love for them!) When you open the door you can immediately smell fried food. You know that if you order french fries your plate will be heaped so full there is no way you could eat them all! The people who work there are efficient and friendly. It is a typical small town diner.

The food is typical diner food. Burgers and fries. But I love to walk down there and order cheese balls and a milk shake...just like I did when I was in Jr. High and we could easily walk there from our school building in the afternoons. If you sit in Jonesy's long enough you will see all sorts of people and hear all sorts of stories. This place has been a favorite of many people for a long time and will continue to be. My friends and I have recently begun experiencing the joy of introducing younger generations to the history and nostalgia of afternoons at Jonesy's. They may never get to simply walk down the street from their school and order a milkshake, but they'll end up there anyways! If you end up there give me a call and we can have some ice cream!

Just a note--since I have already been asked this--I was not asked (by Jonesy's or anyone else) to write specifically about this local establishment and am receiving no reimbursement or reward for doing so. It is simply one of the many charms of Paris that I wish to enlighten my city dwelling friends about. :)
