“Good but pricey!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is a popular chain and for good reason. Their formula is spot on - really good burgers, fries and onion rings wrapped cleverly (newspaper type paper) and fun atmosphere. The portions are large, only fresh ingredients are used and grilled to order. However, you will pay a premium for all of the above. If money isn't a concern, then Jakes is an excellent choice.

“Not just burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

This was my 4th visit to Jake's Wayback. They do a great job with everything on their menu. I've had their burgers, hot dogs,grilled cheese and shakes. The hot dog I had today prompted my review. It was incredible! Sliced and grilled served with perfectly cooked bacon, grilled onions and "gold" sauce(combination mustard and BBQ sauce). It was delicious. The shakes are thick yet drinkable. If eating outside is your desire they have a few small 4 seater tables out in front. They bring your order out to you too!

“Worth A visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

I stopped in with my wife and family, to see what all the hype was about. The location is somewhat hidden but if your local you shouldn't have a problem finding it its in an industrial park. The service was good, the atmosphere is clean a bit too open but okay for a brewery. Maybe too much echo. The food was above my expectations, kids loved the pizza and sliders, adults did too. The beer is above average and we would be visiting again.

“Pricing is pretty decent...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

These burgers are awesome and there's no denying it. I only wish sometimes they put more meat into their patties.

“Great burger place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We go to this place about once a week or so. Great experience everytime. Great management, staff and service. There is always a flow of people coming and going, so what does that tell you? I love the veggie burger, and my daughter and husband love the jake burger. Fries are good (we get them with no salt) and they have a nice selection of shakes. We usually go next door to Kiwi Yogurt afterwards for a little dessert. Nice family time for us.

The manager is GREAT!
