Description: Since 1991, Jake’s Hamburgers has promised fresh, tasty, hand-made burgers and thick, creamy milkshakes in a casual and friendly environment. That’s as true today as it was back then. Jake’s Hamburgers, the best burgers under the bun.

“Overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

First ordered online. Arrived there a half hour later and they haven't even started making it. Milkshakes are always good. Burgers are ok but definitely not worth the almost $5 dollar price tag. You can get a better burger for a lot cheaper. Not a big fan.

“Great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

When you walk in the door at Jake's, you feel like you've stepped back in time into an 1950's diner. It's not as pronounced as when you go to Johnny Rockets, but the food is better. I love the burgers, chicken sandwiches, and milkshakes here. If you want a burger and fries in town, this is the place to go!

“Great Milkshakes top it off”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Love this place, it has it all. Great hamburgers and fries. Want something different try their
other burgers; turkey burger or gardenburger! They also have chicken various ways and even
hot dogs and grilled cheese.

Everyone will be happy and find what they want.

The milkshakes are too die for!

Stopped for lunch before heading to beach. Everyone was completely satisfied and loved the milkshakes.

“Great Burgers and Milkshakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Still has great burgers even after the re-branding. Milkshakes are always a plus. Fries have changed since the change over. My kids love it. As expected, items besides burgers are so-so. Stick with the burgers.
