There are places with MUCH better burgers than this. Unless you like super greasy burgers. Than this place is perfect!

This was my first Jack's burger. I was impressed with how moist the burger was. Very tasty and more meat than bun! Perfect! Thought I would try "cheese fries" as I've never had them before. Don't do it! Wasn't very good. Fast service and a clean location.

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...

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' food restaurant with much better fair.

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.
