It's a Hamburger Joint!

and also Roast Beef with peppers and onions! Large portions served piping hot and I like the choice of extra interesting condiments, pickles and raw onions. Good shakes and the counter service is quite fast considering the place is usually packed. Expensive? No way! A few dollars more then a 'fast... read more

Wonderful milkshakes and burgers. My dad was in the hospital near by and wouldn't eat. Went and got him a Jack's Jr. and he ate half of it. First real food he'd eaten in 2 weeks.

This place has been around forever...I've been coming here since the 1980's. The best thing about it is the consistency. The burgers are always big and delicious. They grind the beef from steak and make the fries from potatoes in the back. The place is not extraordinary, just a good place to go when you're craving a great burger. And... More

We looked forward to coming to this place all the time! Now with all these other burger places coming into town....Jack's has serious competition. There are much better burger places out there now for the same price, and they serve you much more food. The kids working behind the counter made the last experience probably the last time I eat...

Stopped in to get a burger. Food was OK but lil bit pricey. Fries were smaller portions than I thought and it was a pain in the @ss to get a drink refill from them behind the counter.

Went for the good reviews. Didn't realize that it was a fast food place. As such it is a good alternative to the big ones and juicer burgers.

Interesting combinations for hamburgers, however found them a bit too greasy. More could be done to improve their product.

A great hamburger...what they do they do well. Nothing fancy..no unusual cheeses, for example, just a good quality burger, fries and soda in a clean comfortable place.

sometimes when you go back after while, hard to be objective, but having eaten now a few times at this and there second location last couple of years, decided I could be objective. Average at best. My favorite is fact you can put your own condiments on, and they have a hamburger/tomato relish, which is favorite of mine. Nevertheless, hard... More
