I am planning on retiring in the near future as well as retiring Jim's Bar in Tebbetts, unless I rent the business to someone. Do not plan on Jim's Bar to be open on a regular basis for 2011. If you are staying at the Katy Trail Shelter in Tebbetts for the night and need food and i am around the business that night, I will try and take care of your needs. If you have any questions you may call 573-295-6100. Thank you for your past business. Jim

Jim, I enjoyed my night in Tebbettes during a 2009 full trail ride. Your bar was just what we needed for relief. Hopefully you find the next chapter in your life to be enjoyable.

Jim went above and beyond to help my brother and I when we stopped in Tebbets this week. His bar was closed that day, but when he heard about our lack of food situation, he whipped up cheeseburgers with all the fixings and cold beer to wash them down. He is a great guy and an asset to the Katy Trail community!

Sorry I didn't read these comments before we made our trip through there on the 6/18. We didn't find much of anyone or anything moving that night, but it was still a good stay in the shelter. Luckily we grabbed some food in Hartsburg prior to hitting Tebbetts, but a cold beer sure would have been nice after the 70+ mile trip from Pilot Grove. Maybe next time.

I was in Tibbetts on June 15. Jim's was open, and had a schedule on the door - open Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday evenings. Cold beer, pizza, and good company. Hope your so lucky to catch him open!

Jim, I notice that you have been making major improvements to the bar. Are you selling it? I live in Tebbetts and would be very interested in talking to you about the future of the bar if you don't have any other lookers. Thanks!

Hey Jim, I was the first person to sign your book in 2012. I think it was sometime in February. I was the lone Korean kid biking/walking across the States. It's been a while, and I doubt you really read this. I just wanted to say thank you again for opening up your services for this me. That part of my trip is always remembered; the cold natural ices, the pizza and the karaoke with your friends. Thank you very much for your help and the laughs. If you wanted to know, I did make it across the country. I went to south america as well and now I am teaching in my country, Korea. Good luck to whatever you are doing. I hope the bar is still up, at least for some weekends. It really is a monument of the Katy Trail.
