What Are You Doing For Lunch? JB Hook's Has A Great Idea!

According to popular belief, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and people generally make a big deal about dinner too, but what about lunch? In our opinion, this midday meal is highly underrated. We offer the best lunch at the Lake of the Ozarks and an incredible view to enjoy it by. 

Those of us here at JB Hook's did a little digging, and we came up with a few interesting facts about this midday meal.  

  • Lunch was originally called "dinner," and dinner was referred to as "supper."
  • The word "lunch" is short for "luncheon" which is a meal typically eaten at midday. Those two words originated from the German "lunchentach."
  • Working through lunch can actually cause poor performance at your job, and often doesn't allow you to get your job done any sooner.
  • Leaving the office for lunch is a great way to break up the monotony and boost your energy for the other half of the day.
  • Skipping lunch is bad for your metabolism, can make you less productive, and stressed out.
  • We've been told that finishing your lunch with something sweet is a good way to fend off early afternoon cravings. (Our desserts are unbelievable!)  

We don't know why lunch tends to get overlooked, and often skipped altogether. JB Hook's loves lunch, and we've put together an amazing menu that will make you never want to miss it again. We open seven days at week at 11:00 am for lunch and serve it until 4:00 pm.
