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.

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.

We go to this place about once a week or so. Great experience everytime. Great management, staff and service. There is always a flow of people coming and going, so what does that tell you? I love the veggie burger, and my daughter and husband love the jake burger. Fries are good (we get them with no salt) and they... More

Good if you're looking for fresh made burgers and shakes. A throw back to the 50's burger joints. The burgers fries and shakes are good, fresh and hand made.

Have been there alot since they opened always great food and service.The burgers are juicy but not greasy,milkshakes are awsome with real vanilla bean ice cream in an assortment of flavors.Every month there is a burger of the month as well as a milkshake of the month. Just a great experience above the normal fast food or even Five Guys.
