The menu is interesting and has something for everyone and the beer is ice cold, but the across-the-board smiles and upbeat attitudes of every single employee is what sets this place apart. Tired of being treated like they don't care of you're there or not? Check out Jack's.

This is the first restaurant I have ever eaten in Texas. I liked the atmosphere and their salad with grilled chicken was awesome! They had these super spicy walnuts on it that would catch you by surprise. I couldn't stop eating them. Their Pimento Cheese is amazing! We had a server that was training and had no idea. I bought...

We've been in for brunch a couple of times with friends in the local area. I find it to be okay, but certainly nothing special. Only thing appealing is it has a large variety buffet prepared with local organic ingredients. I find the atmosphere and bit dated and tired. Wait staff is nice and efficient enough, but for the money... More

Each of us in our group of 5 ordered something different. We were well taken care of by our server who had a good sense of humor as we chortled about their "Wedgies Salad". One of us in the party ordered an app for his lunch, the chicken nachitos, and I've made a note to return for lunch and order... More

Fun night out with friends but food was sub par. I had the rib-eye special. I ordered medium rare. It was so inconsistently cooked in that one piece of meat. more than half was medium to well done. There was another half that was closer to medium than medium rare. It was the first rib-eye that I have had that... More

We love the variety on their menu! This was our second time there and we've always loved what we ordered! The atmosphere is busy...lots of people, lots of conversations, but fun! If you're looking to try something "new" in Austin, we highly recommend Jack Allens!

Cold drinks and innovative half price appetizers is a great combination for a perfect light meal. The quesadillas were excellent! Enough for a meal. Ask to sit on the back porch - it is s great atmosphere while still inside. The Sunday brunch is supposed to be the best in town! Will be going back to Jack Allen's again!
