From the reviews I read I thought these burgers would be amazing but they were just ok. There's almost no room to sit down and if it's even close to busy you might have to pay to park down the street.

We just chanced upon this. Gray little find. Had the 1/3 pounder chipotle burger. Very tasty. Slightly on the pricey side. Would go back for just the burger.

I go to Jacks anytime I want a good Hamburger and Fries, the service is quick the price is right and it has been in downtown Santa Cruz seems like forever...I am never disappointed with Jack's I highly recommended it for a quick meal and friendly service...I have also had the Chicken Burger equally good...Nothing fancy but clean,you go to...

I didn't have a burger, but I tried the chicken sandwich and it was very tasty! I've heard the burgers and really good, I'm looking forward to coming back soon and trying one.

A good place to visit. Doesn't look like much, but they are known for their burgers. If you go on a Wednesday...it is right across from the farmers market, so, can visit that also.

This place has been the standard for cheese burgers for years. Always good always consistent. The menu is not fancy or complicated just a great place for lunch.

I looked online for the best burgers in Santa Cruz and decided on trying Jack's and Surfrider. Surfrider is one of the best cheeseburgers I have ever had and my brother agreed. Jack's was just a basic cheeseburger. Good but not great. Average french fries.

Interesting place to people watch, food is average, patrons diverse and often entertaining. It's Santa Cruz....you get exactly what you would expect from downtown Santa Cruz...costumes....green hair.....lack of hygiene...not the staff so much...just the clientele...
