Got to Jack's at 7:30 and was told "we're sold out". Is this any way to run a business? I think management is clueless at this place. Would I recommed it to anyone....NEVER!

With so many burger spots around and the trendiness in styles of burgers, I just did not find the Jack burger tasty. Maybe it was an off day or my taste buds don't mesh, but I've had many better burgers before. Obviously this disagrees with many other reviews - to each his/her own.

I was enjoying my delicious hamburger from Jack's (and they are very good tasting) when I noticed a hair in my burger...and it was not from the person's head. (ew ew ew) There were rumors about employees peeing in the milkshake machines in this restaurant 20 years ago when I was in high school. I didn't believe them at the... More

Jack's has always been a favorite. The place itself is neat with a 50s-60s feel. I like that I can put my own toppings on my burger and their fries are so good. The burgers have always been fresh and cooked just right. The milkshakes are also really good when you're in the mood for a burger and a shake.... More

Jack's is where the meat is fresh ground everyday, condiments like onions, pickles, relish are available with free refills!! Clean, simple and a step back to what it used to be like to get a GOOD hamburger and not pay a fortune!!

This is a better than average hamburger joint, but I havta say, I had a greasy film in my palate in the morning. If you're a hamburger lover, you would probably enjoy Jack's.

For sure this was freshly cooked. Got the giant half pounder, with fries. Plenty to eat, but the fries were overcooked and cold. Glad I went, but not sure I would again

Enough of the would be burger joints, this classic is the best burger and best priced in south florida, fast service and throw back decor adds to the taste no doubt, hint if you get a soda get the medium, small soda in paper cup is mostly ice my only ding

This is THE place ! The meat is always excellent ( I am not a meat eater but this is the only place I make an exception for ). The portions are generous, the prices low, the fries are not greasy. Everyone there is helpful and happy, no wonder the place is packed at lunch time. You see the same... More

Jack's is one of those places that you forget about, but it's always there. They do one thing well, and that's make burgers. You want beer and TVs? Don't go to Jack's. Nothing fancy here - most people come to get a good burger, then go about their business. When the grandkids have lunch with us, and want a burger,... More
