Good old fashioned diner

Feels like a bit of nostalgia, small town diner with your basics. Great place for down to earth breakfast, solid service. Atmosphere is your typical small town cafe/diner, nothing fancy gets the job done!

I love small diners and wanted to like this place. But after two lackluster breakfasts, I,'ve concluded its more a dive than a diner. So so food, dirty decor, all point to the fact that, sadly, this place is in decline. Skip it.

After checking out Jack's on Saturday morning for brunch, I can honestly say that Jack no longer owns this place. The place was nearly deserted when we arrived which was a bad sign but we decided to give them a chance. There were only 3 people running the entire place. A woman taking orders and waiting tables and taking payments... More

I always eat and bring the family here when I'm in the area. Always love/enjoy their food. Would recommend over Denny's or Ihop.

Great breakfast at a low price. A mom and pop store front without a view. Try it, you will love the food.

After one morning of our hotel's included continental breakfast, it was time to search for real food! Jack's is a hole-in-the-wall restaurant located in a strip mall, so don't expect anything fancy in terms of decor or atmosphere. Breakfast was typical fare; eggs cooked to order with choice of meat or their skillets, which were decent sized with plenty of... More

From previous reviews I had read, I expected a little more of this restaurant. I anticipated large portions, a homey atmosphere and lots of friends around tables. The latter part was right. There were lots of guys who knew each other, but there were also others blabbing loudly on their cell phones, acting like they were in a phone booth,... More

This little, narrow breakfast joint is one of my uncle's favorites in Des Moines. They know him by name and he doesn't even have to order, they just bring him his usual. Don't expect it to be fine dining-- it's what I lovingly call a "greasy spoon," though to be fair the spoons were clean, even if the table needed... More

This is a little place with a great menu. Everyone is very friendly, including your fellow customers. This is the kind of place where you can go in alone, but when you've finished eating, you've made at least one new acquaintance. It's good old fashioned home cooking.

I have gone here a few times thinking maybe it was just me. The food there is decent, always seems busy on the weekends. Staff wasn't overly friendly and the food isn't remarkable.
