Ate here for a third time and I've been pleased each time. Dined in again this time and the counter staff is polite. The burgers were very good, not greasy and the fries were perfect. They have a toppings bar where you can select what wish and I added jalapeños to my burger. It was around $18 for two orders... More

We tried this after reading about this on TA and seeing all the cars in the parking lot. What a disappointment! Hamburgers were tasteless and soggy. Grilled cheese was unmelted cheese on a bun that was flipped over. French fries were the highlight of the meal and they were just average frozen fries. Do not waste time or money here... More

Casual, comfortable, and kid friendly. The old juke box plays and the burgers are the freshest most juiciest ever. The staff is always efficient and nice. This is a place you feel comfortable to go to alone for a quick yummy burger 🍔

I ate at the Fort Lauderdale location twice, and today for the first time at the Pompano Beach location. The Pompano Beach seemed to be by far a better burger. I got the 1/3 pound cheese burger and it was very good and plenty. My friend got the 1/2 pound burger and it was huge. The prices are very fair.... More

Jack's wonderful burgers and hot dogs remind me of pre-McDonald's fast food joints....burgers are fresh ground daily, cooked to order and generous sized with real crispy bacon, nice empty cheese and tons of toppings and condiments. They are not too fatty either, which I appreciate. The hot dogs are regular sized, topped with chili, cheese and lots of other toppings... More

I've been going to Jack's for over 10 years now and still love it to this day! I hope the burger will still be amazing when we next visit.

I have tried Jack's several times as it is conveniently located and seems to be popular. However, they serve the greasiest burgers and fries I have ever seen. The buns are soaked with grease and the fries are limp. I must be missing something.

OK, I get it. Jack's is a Pompano Beach institution. Soon, local burger joints like this could be gone replaced by Wendy's, McDonald's, Hardee's - repeat. Truth is though, the burger isn't that good. Especially for $6. Based on how hoppin' the place was when I went there they won't loose business over this review but honestly, I think the... More
