Very interesting selection of burgers. Really good food.

Have been to James Madison University campus a lot over the last 10 years and have never really ventured into the town itself. Glad we did. Jack Brown's was recommended to us. It is a small place, but the night was nice, so we sat outside. Crazy selection of burgers with all sorts of toppings... read more

Don't get me wrong. Jack Brown's is good. But it is not fantastic. Lots of beers to choose from, but there are other great breweries and beer joints in the area. The burgers are good for the price, but not out of this world. Really small place. Not the best environment, though I recommend sitting outside. You will have more... More

Small establishment. Tight quarters but if you can wait it out, get in or a table outside you will not be disappointed. Beer selection superb and the burgers are awesome!

Okay, I'm a burger nut!!! I admit it. Having found this while vacationing Massanutten Resort, we found the best little burgers. Nothing fancy but a Kobe Beef Burger...whatelse do you need. DOn't mess with perfection by the desire to add alot of condiments and rabbit food. This is where the beff is and it doesn't come any better. If you... More

There is also an outside seating area, so... More

This is a small joint (and I mean that in the nicest way) that should not be missed. It is the perfect mix of college bar and family burger place. Go with an open mind... as it has a unique décor! The beer list is outstanding!

Based on the TripAdvisor rating, we stopped with our elderly parents for lunch. What no one tells you is this is a bar not a restaurant. There are no tables. Watching my 80 year old parents unsuccessfully attempt to mount a bar stool, I decided to pass on this bar for lunch.

We have stopped here 3 times while traveling on 81 in Virginia. You can only select a couple items but those items address really amazing. I always get a cheeseburger and fries. You will not be disappointed.
