Order soup

Based on other reviews, we stuck to the borscht and knoephla (which sounded like "neffla" when the server said it). Both were amazing. My youngest son was the only one who didn't have soup, and he wished he had after tasting the knoephla. Other items, like the chicken, were okay, but the soup is... read more

We stopped at Jack's for lunch and was pleasantly surprised how clean homey it was. However, when our food came we were kind of schocked it was served on paper plates. We ordered a bacon cheeseburger deluxe and they forgot the deluxe. Everything seemed to be from out of a bag or a box. The chicken was greasy and needed... More

Jack's is a very pleasant small-town restaurant. The borscht and knoephla soups are excellent. Fried chicken is very good also. Be aware that it is closed Mon-Tue and the dining room closes at 7pm.

They were closed for eat-in due to remodel some family issue, but we ordered borscht for take-out. We ate elsewhere but took the borscht home. It was delicious!

The best place in town!! I think I would have gone crazy if I hadn't found this place. Just moved to ND and this little restaurant makes me feel like I brought all the comforts of home with me. Whether you want the best chicken you have ever tasted, or the most juicy burgers around or even looking for some... More

Ordered the 8 piece chicken bucket and started with the pumpkin pie. Delicious. Sort of odd that, upon arriving shortly before 1800, the place was emptying out and signs of a "dinner rush" were apparent. Sort of brought to mind the "early bird special" syndrome of Florida (oldsters eating dinner by 1600 to save a few bucks).

Legendary. But you have to go to the power items on the menu. Pies are not worth trying, and mashed potatoes are phony. Borscht is the real deal, the best in North Dakota, savory broth, chock full of beets and cabbage. Chicken dinners are great--even the white meat moist and tender. Service is attentive.
