NICE PLACE

We love Cootie Browns, knowing they also owned Jack's, we knew we were not taking a chance on the quality of food and service. We were not disappointed. We both had the jack burger, we liked it.

Greasy, overpriced, and the manager didn't even care we decided to leave. I won't gross you out with the details, but we will definitely never go back, inspect your food if you chose to dine there!

I ordered the Philly Burger and was very disappointed. I ordered it medium and it came out fully cooked and dry. I told the manager and he told me something very interesting. He told me that with the "Jack" burgers even tho they cooked them how they're ordered, they just didn't get a pink center, something about the meat they... More

We honestly wanted to try something new- so we drove up and down the street by the mall until something jumped out at us. So glad Jack's did! The food was great from appetizer to finish. For an appetizer we got the ultimate nachos, and they were great. I got the chimichangas they were great. My Mammaw got the barbecue... More

Very cute restaurant. So much to look at. However, I had crab cakes and they tasted like filler, not crab.

Pretty bad food. Taste like it all came from the frozen section and quickly microwaved. Small portions and not fresh (chicken chimachanga and Hawaiian chicken sandwich ordered). Go elsewhere.

If you like Cootie's, you will like Jack's. Same owners. Similar but different menu. Very casual. Good service. Great prices. Fairly good food. I like it for a casual, inexpensive meal.

Jack's is a great place to hang out. The décor is eclectic, which I find appealing. The bar staff is nice and they have a secret beer club that you can be part of if you inquire. They also make decent cocktails and have drink specials many nights of the week. I enjoy the turkey wrap with jezebel sauce, but... More

We like the food here. Sometimes we have better service than others but that can happen anywhere depending on the rush. Our food always comes out hot and fresh and we do not always eat the same thing. Sometimes we eat at the bar so we can watch a ballgame. Always get great service there! Love the atmosphere and décor.
