Take a shake break!

My daughter, her friend & I went to Jake's after shopping. We all had their large shakes & loved them. The staff was flexible & funny because I created my own flavored shake by combining 2 they have & it worked. The teens loved their shakes & we waddled out happily.

We do like the food! The staff is super friendly and the service is prompt and courteous. for a family of 5 we can't eat here for less than about $75 when everyone gets what they want. So we don't go here often

By chance we were just driving around and the sign absolutely grabbed us...hey, cool name...let's go in and see what's "Wayback" about it! Well...after ordering and devouring an Octoberfest burger (fresh meat/ sauerkraut/muenster cheese/onions) and a super chocolate malt served in the ol' time tin mixing can. Yes, this is not fast food...just great food! Will certainly only go to... More

Food is very good. Nice selection. Everything I had was delicious. Staff was pleasant and got my food in a timely manner. Definitely overpriced. If you want to try it for the food fine. If your just looking for a good burger hit some tavern on Burger Night.

Ate here two times. Like their burgers and shakes. Curious to see someone attempt the 9 patty "Triple Triple". Their fries are average. Onion rings pretty good.

Decent food but nothing spectacular. Don't order a shake bc it will come at the end of your meal. Took forever for the milk shake to come... Won't be going back in any hurry
