Winning Best of Missoula is becoming old-hat to Cheryl Nickey. But you know what's not getting old for this two-time honoree? Making people feel welcome while dining at Jakers. Nickey, who says she's been waiting tables "my whole entire life" and working at Jakers for a decade, takes great pride in being calm, interacting with her customers and making sure that people leave her restaurant happy. That last part is particularly important. When asked if she has any pet peeves, she says it's when someone ends a meal unsatisfied. Rest assured, that almost never happens when she's working the table.
