Love this place! Great eats. Great vibe!

Jacks n Joe is a locals favorite. Get there early if you have a group! The food is delicious and makes you want to splurge if you're on any kind of diet. Can't go wrong with breakfast here!

The food is excellent but most often there is a long wait of 40 min and up. If you arrive at 1 you might find is isn't a long wait. It is all breakfast food, no burgers but they do have breakfast sandwiches that can pass as a lunch item. Enjoy one of USC area best restaurants.

First time visiting this restaurant. Small dining room compared to big chain breakfast places but definitely worth the visit. Their plain pancakes were great considering you can't do much to them. Butter and syrup was all they needed. Staff was very attentive. Baby jacks pancakes were larger than expected. Can't wait to go back but hated the parking.

visited this place for breakfast on our last visit. Lovely pancakes, great service and casual friendly atmosphere. Very busy place even on a Monday at 9am. Staff was calm and did not make us feel rushed. Certainly worth a visit - altho parking is limited so we walked from our hotel across from USC.

We are looking for new places to try since moving to Los Angeles. Cute place. We arrives shortly after opening on a Saturday morning. They seem to stagger seat so even though there were tables available, we waiting about 10 minutes. I assume this helps provide good service once you get to the table. Once seated, our service was very... More

Returned for their light pineapple, coconut pancakes - not too sweet with subtle pineapple puree. So ONO! The first trip 3 of us shared entrees but this time I kept all to myself. The waiter was attentive and helpful when I asked for additional super well done cooking of my Portuguese sausage - they were perfect! My friend had an... More

Jacks N Joe! I love this place. We visited there with a friend from the LA area. We loved the vibe as we entered. People were friendly. We ordered the Dakine French Toast combo. Oh my goodness!! The french toast was amazing - and I don't normally eat french toast. I ordered the bacon instead of the sausage which worked... More

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 :)
