Great fries

You stand in line to order and pay. They give you a number and deliver the food to your table. It was fast, but mine came 10 minutes after everyone else. I had the pulled pork sandwich. It was great especially after I took out some of the cabbage. Even with the wait, I would give it the thumbs up.

Been coming here for years. Love this place! The urban fries...... omg they are to die for. No matter what I order, I always have to get side of them. Salads are great, I usually opt for the build your own salad option. Never have had a bad experience here. Service is good, great for both dine in and take... More

Located near the railroad track running through downtown Sacramento. I have eaten in and taken out several times. Staff is friendly and efficient. A long line is quick to move (assembly line). Food orders are not made until ordered. Food is seasoned, dressed, and incredibly fresh. Salads are usually properly dressed and hold well to go. Sometimes overdressed and difficult... More

My husband and I stayed in Sacramento a few weeks ago. I had read about this restaurant, so we gave it a try. Really glad we did. Think "old style carving stations" with great salads and soups. Fun, friendly staff and plenty of room for indoor and outdoor seating. Portion size very nice. Can easily split sandwich and salad. Loved... More

Self serve with plenty of choices. Steak salad was fresh and amazing. They used Tri-tip which is the best! Glass of wine, my dinner was complete.

This Jacks is always busy because it's near all the clubs and stuff. Second Saturday festivities are just a block away also Spring to Fall. Very social setting. The outdoor seating is always fun with all the people walking by. Food is good. Salads are amazing. It's the atmosphere I like at this one.

I hadn't been to Sacramento in many years but had fondly remembered going to Jack's. Loved the cafeteria concept where you interact with the serving staff to tell them exactly how you want your food and love that you can get turkey carved off of a full roasted turkey. Restorative comfort food. Last night I had a generous serving of... More

We went to the downtown restaurant and ended up going to another one 2 more times. Each time I had a salad but they also have sandwiches and side dishes. The first time I had a "make your own" salad. I ordered the half size and it was plenty of food. They make the salad in front of you. The... More
