“Better than average but not very good---”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

so my rating went low. Salads OK, burgers a bit better but I can get at least 3 better burgers within a one mile radius of Tenderjack's.
Milk shakes are very good, however.
Usually quick service and attentive folks in the restaurant to get you what you need.
Like I said, better than ordinary but not to the level of very good.

“The veggie burger!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Honestly, i cannot comment on the meat dishes, although my youngest son tells me the burgers and chicken tenders rock - i am a vegetarian - and i have found my favorite place for a veggie burger done right!! Fire roasted garden burger on an english muffin, with cheese. Topped with lettuce, pickle, tomato, onions. Yum. The chipotle mayo makes it even better. It is the ONLY place i go back to over and over for the garden burger. The fries are good, but get a side of chipotle mayo to dip them in....! A little kick!

My fam gets different dishes / one don gets the garden burger with me and enjoys it too. The meat eaters order chicken tender, sandwiches, and beef burgers and seem to enjoy the variety! Hope they bring more dishes from their parent restaurant!

Not a fancy place, but a casual place for the fam!

“Casual dining, very good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

This is a place-your-order-and-be-seated place, but the food is delivered to your table, checked on part way through, and finished dishes were promptly cleared, putting it several notches above a typical fast food restaurant.

“Disappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

We thought it would be wonderful, but the chicken tenders had a distinct taste of mold - couldn't believe it! We won't eat there again!

“Huge, tasty salads”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Tenderjack's serves enormous entree salads. They're very good and relatively inexpensive. If we lived anywhere within 50 miles of the place, which we don't, we would eat there regularly. As it is, we eat there whenever we are in Leesburg.
