I hear Old Country Store won readers choice again this year... when is Jackson going to wake up and realize that Clark Shaw buys 500 papers every year and forces employees to fill them all out so he makes sure he wins!!! He is the biggest joke around and his wife and son are the biggest losers around...that business is going broke and will be a big shock to the Jackson community when it happens...

I worked there for over a year and never was asked to fill out anything... sorry get your facts straight.
I'm not sure if you just lost the award for your business so you're angry like a child and decided to take it up on topix or what your problem is, but the Shaw family is a great family. And the business is ran with integrity. So go bully him in person next time you loser

I think you are the biggest loser. I have know Clark and his wife for years and they are some of the finest people I know and I think thier daughter is a very inspirational person.

i do not know the shaws personally, but I do know that a couple years back a construction crew was working on the place and they were all offered to eat free for the time they worked there. NONE of them ate anything!! They all went out elsewhere and PAID for their food. If a few dozen grown men turn down free food, theres a problem. Maybe that they had seen the kitchen and wouldnt eat there if it was free. THATS NOT GOOD

For the most part the only business they get are buses and other tourists. They do not know any better. It does not have anything to do with rather or not they are "fine people". It has to do with sanitary problems.

I ate there last night and it was delicious! No complaints here! Oh and I've lived in Jackson for 28 years. Go ahead and spread rumors, that must be all you are good for.

You cannot trust any of the opinions on here, unless you know the true identity of whoever posted the opinions.

The only way to find out is to go there yourself. Unfortunately, if it is as bad as some claim, it might be a waste of money.

I have been inside the kitchen and dish washing area of the Old Country Store.

I won't eat there.

I worked at a few different restaurants in Jackson while I was in college and every single one of them had their employees fill out those readers choice forms and every one of them expected us to put their name in the appropriate blank... They allllll do it! As for the food, I've eaten there a time or two and it was good.. Nothing spectacular but not bad.. I cannot speak for the kitchen or dish area but I have had friend's that worked there and never heard them say anything about it being dirty or nasty. There is really a simple solution here.. If you don't like the food, the owners, cleanliness or lack there of... DON'T EAT THERE!!!! Go somewhere else. There may not be a lot to do in Jackson but one thing is for sure.. There is not a shortage of restaurants here! Let people decide for themselves if they like it or not. There is nothing wrong with voicing your opinion but there is no need to bash a business just because you don't like the owners.. Which I'm pretty sure is the real issue here.

Does the People's Choice Award really mean anything? It's just a popularity contest. It's not like winning the award means they are considered a higher standard. It's voted by people who probably don't know anything better.

Heck, Los Portales wins best Mexican restaurant every year and that place is terrible!

If this is the worst thing you have to worry about, you'rd doing pretty darned good.

I think it is all based on advertising revenue with the paper, the votes don't really mean anything.

That isn't true. We won, and we don't advertise with them at all.

Guest is a busboy/waiter/waitress that was fired after multiple opportunities to improve getting to work on time and doing their job...OCS has good food. Move along, nothing to see here.
