Jack's is an old school luncheonette but without the booths and tables --- just 8-10 counter stools with little space between them. But that's OK because you go to Jack's for the experience . . . . and the tasty hot dogs, burgers and fries (see photos). The dogs and burgers are small but tasty... read more

My complaints are that there is no ice for drinks and no pickles at all. The staff wasn't very friendly but the burgers and hot dogs are good.

This is a classic, kitchy, fun and funky little hole in the wall that seems to be lost in time...the narrow counter overlooks a very busy grill, full of burgers and mainly dogs. Any way you can imagine having a hot dog, Jacks can deliver! Worth a stop for cheap, fun eats.

Dogs and Hamburgers anyway you want then at great value prices. Fast grill and friendly service for modest sized dogs and burgers. 8-10 stools and no AC. Seats by the door will steam you from the bun warmer. Worth a try but probably not a wait.

Walking in can be a cultural experience...tight, crowded, old, confusing place. Take out lines, staff hustling behind the counter, locals on stools inhaling the burgers and dogs...limited menu which is a good thing...ordered two dogs with fries, a bowl of chili, a cheeseburger and two soft drinks..eight (8) bucks total!!! Started in 1917...I hope it never closes!!!!!!!!!!!!

Every local knows about Jack's. It is a hole in the wall and is fantastic. The food and atmosphere is nostalgic. It is an experience.

Jack's was a really good place for a quick lunch on a busy day. If you are looking for elegant decor or a gourmet menu and food this is probably not the place for you. Fast friendly service, good hot dogs (not Nathan's that we don't like) and a bill of $7 for our hot dogs and sodas are hard... More

1st time. In town from Northampton seeing the parks and checked for the number one place to eat nearby. This was it. Not disappointed. Burgers and onion rings. Just fabulous. Old school joint. You can see your food get cooked. Great crunch on the burger. Just excellent.
