Great food, but some cleanliness issues

when this place opened up over 15 years ago, my husband and I went all the time (we were locals back then). The food was and is still fantastic. We highly recommend the Biff Bbq (formerly Buffalo) Chicken with Blue Cheese cole slaw. Yummm..... Now for the issues. There were only 2 people working... read more

We had the chili dog and the kraut dog plus fries. They were ok. The fries were best food. The beer (porter) was very good. For a short visit we will probably not go back. Too many other places to try.

This is the coolest place to get a hot dog. They serve gourmet dogs with several different toppings. The slaw is so good. Very casual and fun place, takes you back to the 60's. They serve KoolAid and Tang. Fun place for lunch.

If you like hot dogs, go. If you love hot dogs, go. Cheerwine, a local soft drink (local as in Southern, from NC), a dog and chips is as good as it gets, and I think city code requires you to have a root beer float as well. Do yourself a favor and go hungry and over eat. And remember,... More

A fun place to grab a quick bit. Great hot dog offerings and the best fresh fried French fries around. A little funky, not a lot of room and in the summer eating out on the porch is a good idea. A local landmark well worth trying.

This is a totally fun place. A local paper's food critic described it as 'The "Jetsons" meets "Happy Days"', and that's a perfect description. If retro-futuristic is a style, Jack's nails it. As for the hot dogs, Alton Brown's Cosmic Dogs were not the best we ever had, but they were very good, as were the fries and draft root... More

I love the quirky decor but there is even more care into the quality of the meal that there is into creating an interesting place to eat, if that's even possible. We DO NOT skip this place whenever we make the trek from Virginia to Charleston!

A couple of years ago, my son and I had finished up a day of fishing and having passed by Jack's a few times, we decided to stop in and give it a shot. We have been stopping by now for a couple of years and have since introduced my wife and younger son. Needless to say, we are all... More
