Always a treat

Always a treat to stop at Jack's. It's sad that pretty much every other shop on Eagle street is empty, but Jack's carries on. Noonish on Saturday and we had to wait for stools, was well worth it. Great dogs (but tiny), and better burgers are guaranteed here.

I actually visited Jack's last Summer so it was likely August 2014. My husband is crazy for this place but it isn't for me. It is a greasy-spoon-counter- cheap-eats dive with a formica counter and stools. I believe their dogs are called "Rhode Island System;" I prefer the "Coney Island System if there is a system... gimme Nathan's or the... More

Jack's is LEGENDARY. This was my go-to place when I was in college because it was good and cheap. Some things never change. I always get the hot sausage pepper, onion and cheese sandwich, a cheese dog with relish and ketchup and a small chocolate milk. Fries are optional but this time I didn't get the fries. The nostalgia alone... More

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. The dogs are kind of... 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
