“The line up never ends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

I have lived out in this area for over 30 years and can honestly say that Jacks is a legend. You can drive by at almost any time of the day and there is a line up, if that doesn't say it all what does.

“Jacks Drive Thru - A Vintage Classic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

I love going to Jacks for their icecream and old 50s burger joint atmosphere. The inside is decked out with murals of Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, and other icons of the 50s. Their tables, chairs, and bar stools are reminiscent of that period as well.

Their service is fast, friendly and always aiming to please.
The ice cream is really good, we always take my Grandma there when she comes up to visit.

My husband especially loves their mushroom burgers. They look too messy for me, so I usually opt for a regular cheeseburger or chicken burger.

Stay away from their veggie burgers, though. They're disgusting! I tried one once out of curiosity, and was sorry I did!

“Best Burger in Town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

Jack's is a cute little retro burger/ice cream shack on the main road going through Spruce Grove. They have fantastic burgers and an amazing selection of ice cream and milk shakes. The food is always made fresh and the service is quite speedy as well. The interior walls have paintings of Marilyn Monroe, Elvis and other entertainers of the era. I highly recommend a stop at Jack's if you are in town.

“Over Rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

The ice cream and shakes are good but the so called famous mushroom burger is a cheap mass produced burger topped off with canned mushrooms mixed with mushroom soup.
