Classic hoagies & burgers

They are only open over lunch and only weekdays. That probably tells you how popular they are. Nothing fancy just great food and a spirit of service. Wonderful provolone for the subs, I mean hoagies. If you get the chance, it's worth the wait (Friday lunch is especially buys). As someone said... read more

Jackson House in Harrisburg is a serious gem- a one of a kind, throw-back lunch spot/deli that takes only cash, has crusty hard rolls and bread brought in daily from Philadelphia, and makes the BEST Italian style subs (or hoagies- whatever you wanna call em) and burgers- in fact it has repeatedly been voted "best burger" in Harrisburg over the...

I have not had a better burger in Harrisburg. For awhile, the Jackson House was my number 1 burger anywhere (it is still top 3, but I have had a few better in my travels). Huge, tasty and unlike any burger in the Burg.

Was taken there by a friend for lunch after I was lamenting that no one made a good sub in Harrisburg anymore. It was so big I took 1/2 home. The sharp provolone was incredible.

We didn't eat in the Resturant, our son works in Harrisburg & brought subs home for us tonight for dinner. I went to school at Harrisburg Hospital in 1970's & we used to frequent the Lagoon sub shop. We had the Lagoon Sub & it brought back memories of times past. They have it right on! We've never found a... More

Not much more to say that what the other reviewers have said. The sandwiches are excellent, the service is excellent, the price - outstanding. I had a hogie today and plan to go back tomorrow for a Philly Cheesesteak. The friendliness and homey feel is a big plus.
