Heard of but hadn't tried. It is only open for lunch. I ordered a Aged Provolone Cheeseburger and fries. Sign said that burgers take a while but it didn't seem to take that long.

This place is a gem. I've been in South Philadelphia, Little Italy in New York, and this place in Harrisburg Pa has the best hoagie I ever ate! You must go to Jackson House for a delicious Mrs. Andreoli's Old Time. This is food of love!

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, you have to pay cash.

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.
