Delicious food!

First time in the Tahoe/Trucked and decided to try out Jaxs due to a family friend recommendation. Definitely had great food! I had a classic burger and it was probably the best one I ever had plus we were Kuching on home made potatoe chips and they were new to me but nonetheless delicious. The... read more

I had heard about Jax from a couple of friends, so we decided to stop for lunch while on vacation in the Tahoe Donner area. My friends were right! This place is great. Awesome food and amazing service. A great old-fashioned diner. Classic hamburgers and a pulled pork sandwich which was to die for. My daughter had a tuna melt... More

We went here because we saw it on the TV show Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, but what a disappointment. My wife ordered the pot pie and I have never seen a crust so thick and hard. We could not crack it with a knife, just pulled it off and left it to be used later as a Frisbee. I ordered... More

First of all this is a cute little place to eat in Truckee. The prices are great and the atmosphere is old school. The food is really good and served hot. Now the bad part is the service is so slow. I ate here 4 times and each time the service was slow. The staff is super friendly, but they... More

Dropped into this diner for a quick dinner after Truckee Thursdays and we weren't disappointed, great comfort food with good portions. Nice outdoor patio area with dart boards and one block off Main Street where all the action was happening. Triple D show filmed here which just confirmed our opinions that this place is the real deal. The staff was... More

I don't know why anyone would return to Jaxs a 2nd time. The food was just okay. Not bad. Just okay. And the service was awful. When we hadn't received our food order after 30 minutes I went up to our waitress and asked when we could expect to be served. Mind you that in that 30 minutes she did... More

This restaurant has been featured on several food channel shows including Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. The service was so, so. We did not go during lunch rush, it was a late lunch around 1:30. The food was okay. Huge portions, but not as good as I was hoping.
