Bad attitude of new manager

Stopped in with coupon I had. Usually prefer to go to the one on 13 but coupon was for Pulaski Highway. Around 2 p.m. during the week. One 3 people there waiting on their food. Customer service was lousy. Stood at counter waiting to be greeted or assisted for a while during which time the two... read more

So, this Jake's location is under new management. I hadn't been there in a while and decided to stop in for lunch the other day. Once inside there appeared to only be one employee on duty. Mind you this was at Noon time when I figured people would be starting to come in for lunch. The restaurant was empty...no customers... More

Stopped in because of a coupon we received in connection with Philadelphia Flyers tickets. We've been here before, but don't make it one of our "must haves". You've got to be in the mood for burgers, and for the most part we prefer other foods when dining out. My wife and son commented on how great tasting the burgers were... More

Nothing but a slab of grease between two buns. Nothing but greasy burgers and greasy fries. I would not recommend eating there unless you want to have a heart attack.

People in most parts of Delaware are not lucky enough to experience Checkers. Most Checkers are in the Deep South, not near Glasgow Delaware. Rejoice Glasgow there is Jake's. Jake's is about the halfway point between Glasgow and Bear on the westbound side of Route 40 (Pulaski Highway.) Prices are a little high but pile on the toppings (we tried... More

My husband and I have visited many of the local Jake's locations (new castle, bear, elsmere, dover, and newark). The Bear location is fairly new. So, the inside is nice and clean. It has about 20 tables inside and 2 large picnic tables outside (perfect for those summer days). You order at the counter, are given your ticket #, and... More
