Great place to go in and have a meal if you don't want to go all out. Burgers are a little on the small size, so get more than one. They are reasonably priced and juicy!

Jacks is its own unique burger place. The burgers are large and tasty. The topping choices are quite a selection. Service is quick and the pace is good. The staff are friendly, efficient, helpful and keep it coming. There's always a table because people are served quickly, eat their meal and it's time to go. I like the mustard mixed... More

I live in west Broward and every time I go east I always make it to Jack's. They have the BEST burger in town. Ground daily, fresh, cooked they way you like it and made like you made it at home but without the mess. Sometimes it's a little out of round, once in a while looks like it got... More

Nothing special. Burger was soggy and lettuce and tomato was served in a plastic sandwich bag. Will not go again.

Average place and average burgers. I tried the hot dog too and I was not impressed. The service is nice. I had best burgers in other places,so to me not the best burger place in town.

Jacks is a must when we are in town. Burgers are the best I've ever had. Prices are reasonable. This is a must visit at reasonable prices.

Very average size of burger and the price didn't include ANY of the vegetables. Each vegetable was an additional cost. FIVE GUYS would have been a better option for the cost!

This is the best hamburger in south Florida. Large, juicy, fresh meat, great bun, cooked exactly to order. Reminds me of homemade, and definitely hand made. Sometimes out of round, sometimes a torn and mended, sometimes off center but always good. Every time I am near Jack's I make sure I go in for lunch. I've gone as far as... More

While it is a little shabby and showing it's age you just can't beat the burgers. Hadn't been in a few years and still the same. I always get the Junior size cheeseburger and it's perfect for me. Just the right amount of fat in the meat...juicy! Nice soft buns.
