Burger to die for

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... read 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!

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. You place your order and then take a seat. Give your name when ordering and a nice lady delivered your food to your table. Fresh hand... More

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...
