“A Great Breakfast Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We were tired of eating breakfast in the same national chains. Jack's is a local diner where the locals eat. The staff was very nice and accommodating. Breakfast was filling and delicious.

“Great breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Ate breakfast here on our way out of town. The food was good and the service was friendly. Lot's of people eating there, so it was popular with the locals. Nice upgrade for a meal compared to the fast-food chains.

“Good Food and Service, plus Big Menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

This is one of those places with a big "Denny's"-style menu that hits on all cylinders. Despite the varied choices, I don't think we have ever been disappointed with a menu choice. It's always been very good.

One thing to try if you are having lunch is to choose the "chips" as your side (and you have a choice of about half a dozen items). They are freshly made potato chips warm from the fryer. They are especially good with a little Ranch to dip.

Service is also very strong. I think after just a visit or two they already know what you drink and will order. Very professional.

Although I think they tried weekend dinners for a while, this is a breakfast and lunch restaurant only so plan accordingly. One interesting bit is the building decor. It used to be Austin's steakhouse, so the inside has a big woodsy feel to it.
