The burgers are average and priced kinda high. The atmosphere is bright and clean without charm. I avoid the place and suggeswt you do, too. For a good hot dog, go downtown to the Very Best. Want a juicy-delicious burger? Try the LongHorn on Rte. 100S. Mid-day, it's barely any more expensive, and the sides, atmosphere, and service far surpass.

We went because we had a groupon and still had to pay, we ordered a single burger and a double burger and 1 drink and cheese fries, burgers are so thin you can hardly taste anything. The cheese fries were fries with some shredded cheese on it!!! And not even melted, no flavor and worst of all the food was... More

Not every burger place has a veggie burger option. This veggie burger is my favorite. You can get a variety of toppings on it and it is delish! I like their fries extra crispy with no salt. These 2 options give this burger place on my list for those who are interested in a little more healthier fare when they... More

this restaurant is very clean and the service was great and so was the food. I understand that this restaurant gives back to the community by donating a percent of his proceeds everyday to injured race car drivers.

Great burgers, but grossly overpriced. I also have to say the staff was very inattentive. It took about 5-6 minutes before we were acknowledged and our order was taken.

We were at the Philadelphia Outlet Mall (puzzlingly located in Pottstown and not Philly) and my wife said she could go for a diner burger. She Googled "Best Burger in Pottstown" on her phone and Jake's WayBack Burger was top of the list. We accidentally drove right by it. It was not a restaurant but a fastfood store wedged in... More

This is a popular chain and for good reason. Their formula is spot on - really good burgers, fries and onion rings wrapped cleverly (newspaper type paper) and fun atmosphere. The portions are large, only fresh ingredients are used and grilled to order. However, you will pay a premium for all of the above. If money isn't a concern, then... More

This was my 4th visit to Jake's Wayback. They do a great job with everything on their menu. I've had their burgers, hot dogs,grilled cheese and shakes. The hot dog I had today prompted my review. It was incredible! Sliced and grilled served with perfectly cooked bacon, grilled onions and "gold" sauce(combination mustard and BBQ sauce). It was delicious. The... More

I stopped in with my wife and family, to see what all the hype was about. The location is somewhat hidden but if your local you shouldn't have a problem finding it its in an industrial park. The service was good, the atmosphere is clean a bit too open but okay for a brewery. Maybe too much echo. The food... More

These burgers are awesome and there's no denying it. I only wish sometimes they put more meat into their patties.
