My family and I ate at Jacks N Joe while visiting our daughter at USC. The restaurant is located about a half mile from the school and was very crowded on. Sunday morning. We waited about 30 minutes before being seated. The menu for breakfast consists of a large selection of various pancakes. I went for the standard sourdough and... More

Awesome service and great food! Get there early because this place is extremely popular!! There a few “hidden” items on the menu like the BURRITO! Just ask them and they will tell you about it :)

As other reviewers have mentioned, this place gets crowded fast. We arrived 8:30 am on Sunday and got the last 3 available seats arond the "counter bar" which meant sitting up high on bar stools. If we wanted a regular table and chairs, thus affording more privacy, it meant waiting another 20-25 minutes. By the time we finished at 9:30... More

Food was amazing. There was a long wait to be seated, but I think it was definitely worth it! We need one in San Diego!

Although we had to wait, it wasn't long on a saturday morning. There were 5 of us and everyone had something different - stuffed french toast, crepes, bananas foster pancakes, eggs, omeletes, fruit filled 'Jacks". So good 3 in our party had 2 entrees each. Carried us through the day. Total Yum!

Such a cool place with great service and GREAT food. A nice twist on breakfast. I had the WTF?! YUMMY pancakes. This place reminds me of a "Cheers" it has the everyone knows your name and you're extended family feel. Read the story of the restaurant and you will feel even better about patronizing it. I've been a total of... More

We were looking for a breakfast diner during our visit in LA, my friend saw this one through Urbanspoon. Just from the menu itself, everything is worth it! I had the Ruby Belle pancake combo, I must say I am officially a fan of pancake! The texture and taste of apple, cinnamon and pecan is one of the best combo... More

Delicious breakfast worth every cent. Had a 3 stack buttermilk pancakes and they were made to perfection. Tasted and looked great. Coffee was good too. Seems like a pretty famous place given me and my friends had to wait in line for 45 minutes at 10a.m

We stayed in downtown LA and wanted breakfast. I read a lot about this place so we went to check it out at like 9:30am on a weekday. I was surprised to find a half hour wait. We waited because we thought it must be good given the popularity. The restaurant was super cramped and there was really no "waiting... More

Took our USC son here on a Sunday morning. We waited about an hour to be seated. Once in, it was great; everything you want a breakfast place to be. We didn't mind the wait since we don't see our son often during the school year, but be prepared to sit outside a long time. We got there at 10:15am;... More
