“Real meat cooked to order”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

A little pricey for what it is. Everything is ala cart. More ice than soda in the drinks, but the meat is real. I thought my body was going to reject it from being used to all the fillers, sugar, MSG, Pink Slime, etc that you get in all the other burgers. Every once a while my Dad will call, and the pilgramage for a REAL burger at Jack's is on ! PS: Get extra napkins these are juicey burgers.

“You have to eat this burger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

There is nothing like a good burger and Jack's has been serving them for 45 years and it shows. There is absolutely nothing touristy about this place. This is where the locals go to get a good burger.

“Loved by some, hated by others”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Jack's is a long time go to for hamburgers in the Pompano area, however, Jack's runs hot and cold for different people. There burgers are nothing special in my opinion and are priced on the high side for what you get. There are new "specialty" burger places opening up around the area that have this place beat - even for just a basic burger. I do like that Jack's hamburgers hire local high-school kids that do an excellent job. He has hit it right in this respect.

“Best Burgers in Pompano!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

They've been around for so long and for good reason! They have an old juke box, they make their own custom made relishes mixed with mustard, super lean and tasty burgers! Fresh buns, nice options to burgers too... roast beef, ham & cheese, etc. They're super busy on Fridays at lunch because that's when everyone gets paid. Well worth the wait!
