Delicious hot toasted sandwiches and beers served with a smile. We sat outside on a quietish terrace.

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

The line at lunch or dinner is always quite long and the popularity makes parking difficult. The food while reliable is a bit more expensive than you would suspect given how informal the place is. What I like is there are good options for a group including vegitarians and meat eaters. You can ask for more of this or less... More

I'd give Jack's "very good" rating if the food wasn't so expensive. I always enjoy their salad and my favorite is their steak salad. The mashed potato and turkey are always my second choice. Again, the food is good but pricey.

Good, fast service, good for takeout. Must say, my Hawaiian chicken sandwich was good but way to heavy on the mayonnaise. Good vegetables (seasonal) quite a busy place.

The sandwich that I had was over priced for what I received. You get a much better tasting sandwich at other sandwich shops for 25 - 50% less.

Sandwiches and salads are both great. Tri tip and turkey are cooked and carved in front of you. Sides are very tasty too. My only knock on the restaurant is that it gets crazy at lunch and finding a decent seat can take a few minutes if you're waiting for someone to leave.other than that the place is great. I... More

Great for a quick meal for a group who craves soups, salads, and sandwiches. I love the urban fries, the steak salad, and the sliced turkey
