Great place for breakfast

Really thick bacon resides here. Good sit down restaurant in the central Bishop business district, right on Hwy395. Waffle was chrispy and toasty warm.

Good home cooked comfort food. If you have some food you need to avoid, they can accommodate. Quick and friendly staff. The stack of pagers at the front counter is a clue to the popularity of this place.

Heading home from Mammoth, we opted to drive to Bishop and have breakfast. We did not Yelp or use tripadvisor for any reviews. Our criteria was to look for a place with a lot of cars in the parking lot. We had breakfast at Jacks, and the food was great. Huge baked muffins as well.

Most eateries in Bishop offer excellent comfort food. This place falls in the lower category of eateries. There are many better selections, so skip this place.

We were passing through Bishop at lunch time and just needed a quick lunch. We saw the reviews for Schat's but the parking lot was full and as we were in a truck camper we need room to maneuver. Jack's was just down the road so we stopped there. Very friendly service with a diner atmosphere. I had chili con... More

My wife and I stopped here for lunch on the way through Bishop. We had eaten here before and the food was reasonably good. Not this time...My wife ordered Fish & Chips per the waitresses recommendation. She said it was salty and tasteless. I ordered a Hot Turkey sandwich. It arrived with (I'm not kidding) green gravy! It too was... More

Great place to eat. Reminds me of a 50's cafe. We try to go there we are in Bishop. The staff is very friendly.

Great breakfast, blah dinners. After enjoying a wonderful breakfast here a few months ago, we thought we would try dinner this time. Not such a good idea. Servings were generous, but food was so, so.

Two years ago we ate about 3 meals at this place and enjoyed it. We stopped by for dinner this time and we were extremely disappointed in the service. Waitress who served us could hardly be bothered to talk to us. She forgot to bring one item and we mentioned it and suggested they take it off the bill she... More

This was our second visit to Bishop and we ate at Jack's both times. Food is really good and plentiful. Our waitress, Bonnie, was super! We will most certainly stop here again if we come back this way.
