“Wonderful little Diner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We always stop at this little diner on our way to the Shuswap. Love the homemade soup which varies daily and also the daily specials which feature sandwiches and in season salads. The food is always tasty and they roast their own chickens. The service is usually quite fast and the waitresses are very friendly. Wonderful and busy little place!!

“Basic food at reasonable prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Very popular for breakfast. Closes usually mid-afternoon but hours of closing vary. Food is good "homestyle", not gourmet, with good size portions. Prices are reasonable. When very busy it is quite noisy. Décor is coffee shop, service is friendly. Some outside seating when weather permits.

“I either went on a bad day, or this place has imploded”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

There are a lot of really positive reviews about this place that really had me wondering if I had entered the wrong restaurant. It's a shabby borderline greasy spoon and the food is downright inedible. The "famous" HJ breakfast featured three slices of salt painted in bacon color (you will literally shiver from the oversaltiness), a clump of hard scrambled yellow something, and potatoes that defy the laws of physics. They were absolutely hard black charcoal on one side and raw on the others. Just think of it as a Tater Tao symbol. Since it seems the cook was on the learn while you earn program, here is some advice: Turn the freakin' potatoes on the grill, don't just burn one side and leave the other stone cold raw! DUH! If it's any consolation there was no salt on the single-sided potatoes so if you eat one bite with half bacon and half potato you might approach something remotely edible. I'll return to Hungry Jack's the next time I'm in Enderby... which hopefully will be never.

Best place around for breaky or lunch! It's really nice to have a meal that is all homemade. Awesome soups, sandwiches, burgers, etc. Always great specials and imaginative menus! Love Love Love it!

“Good food, good prices - great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Friday June 28, 2013

There were four of us, we were in Enderby working the Funtastic Slo-Pitch tournament. We were looking for a place for breakfast and a local friend recommended Hungry Jack's.

Nice place - good feel to it.

Service was slow... too slow... but it really was the only negative.

Prices were low.

Food quality was good.

Coffee was good but had to keep asking for sweetener and then was given one packet. One... really?!?

Would definitely go back again.
