Still great after all these years...

Jack's has been around for a long time and the chicken and fish are still great. The last 2 times I have had the Pike dinner w/ fries, slaw and a roll. A nice crunch on the batter, soft, moist fish on the inside. Price for the take-out meal was $8.00-a good value. Everything is TO-GO. I do not... read more

We actually went to this area of town to try out someplace else. That place was closed and I happened to notice the big chicken on the sign across the street. Parking: strictly street. No private parking at all. It appears this is the standard for this area of Dubuque. Atmosphere: very simple. It is carry out only (which we... More

This place is a must-eat every time I come home. Fantastic fried chicken, fish, french fries, onion rings, even the coleslaw is great. It's all takeaway, so everything is permeated with the flavor orf fried food. If you've never had a dinner roll soaked with chicken grease, I recommend you do. I've read reviews about how greasy and unhealthy Jack's... More

This was my first experience at Jack's since I am fairly new to Dubuque. I chose this place based on previous reviews and because I am always looking for new (to me) places that are locally owned in the area where I am living/visiting instead of the big restaurant chains. I wanted to love the chicken at Jack's Chicken Palace,... More

Chicken is a beautiful blend of juicy and crispy! I'm really not a fan of chicken on the bone but I will eat Jacks any day of the week! They also have good sandwiches and stuff too.

As a child we would eat her a couple times a month as a family (take out chicken and fish). I've gone back a few times over the years and got some fish and mushriooms to go. I did the same this weekend and the batter was so salty on my fish that I couldn't finish it and the fish... More

Just wanted to take time to stop by and recommend Jack's Chicken Palace, this place has been up and running in Dubuque for more than 40 years! I love to feast on their fried chicken, it is some of the best you will find in Dubuque. Fall off the bone good! The people that work are great people, and I... More
