Amazing lunch

Have eaten lunch here many times with my husband. The burgers are outstanding and HUGE; come early and come hungry. The place is small with minimal seating area and it fills up fast, especially on Fridays. We always share an order of fries; too much for 1 person!

The burgers don't get any better than this. Anywhere. Have tried lots of places but none can come close. If you get the chance to go there make sure you do.

The burgers here are to die for...and everything else is slamming good as well. Hungary for a healthy lunch? Sample the tuna sub with red peppers. No mayo, just tuna, olive oil and garlic and it is lip smacking good. Ingredients are high quality and you will wish you could try everything on menu. They are only open for lunch... More

Its funny The Jackson House is rated the #4 restaurant in Hbg. Not because the food dosent deserve it (IT DOES!) but because, as I stated in the title, the place is a dive. To be clear, its NOT where you go for the atmosphere (there isnt any) or a salad or "lite fare". Its where you go when your... More

This place wins all sorts of accolades for their burgers and hoagies and they truly deserve it. The quality of ingredients and care in preparation are top notch. However,they draw quite a crowd during their very limited weekday lunchtime hours so there is no dallying when placing your order and no patience for complaints. Beware of placing large phone orders,... More

If you miss this one, you will go to your grave missing the best burger you ever ate. Seriously. It's hard to imagine a burger being 'fluffy' but these are. The burger never seems pressed down hard or leaden. And, if cheesesteaks or hoagies are your preference, you won't be disappointed in the least. These are the real thing: South... More

This is a little lunch place. Half of the experience is navigating the culture. It gets crowded and loud. The menu is large and you have to know what you want when it's your turn to order. If you want a burger, but don't raise your hand when asked "who's having a burger?" No burger for you! Also, cash only... More

Another one of those little "Hole in the wall" places that is just GOOD! While they keep things simple as far as seating and environment go...the food is definitely worth the trip over. The burgers rival some of the big boy joints!
