I love Lunch at Jack's. The selections are vast, the portions are good, and the food is fresh, hot, and full of flavor. If I'm looking for something beyond a burger for lunch this is my choice when I travel to SAC from the Foothills.

Have been there a few times. Always enjoyed the food. It's small, but if you get there at non busy hours..it's quaint.

Our family had a quick lunch before flying out of Sacramento. We found this place on trip advisor and the ratings are accurate. The restaurant was very clean, quick, and everything was freshly prepared as you went through the the line. Fast casual restaurant with patio seating as well. The salad was fresh and the options were great. The salad... More

Not a full service restaurant, but a good, quick bite. The sandwiches were perfect, and the turkey is hand carved. That gives a little something special to the turkey club. Nice to sit outside in the evening. Location doesn't make it too noisy. Worth stopping at.

This place should be called half Jack because they only had half the items on the menu available to order. After several different options I ordered I finally walked away because they had none of the ingredients I wanted on my salad. How hard is it to cut up a cucumber or mushrooms? I would never go back.

Freshly made salads that are simply brilliant! You pick the lettuce, the dressing, and up to six ingredients! It is made right in front of you and it's simply the best lunch deal in the city. Plenty of fixed meals...sandwiches, salads, plates, but the salad you build yourself is an exceptional bargain. The staff are very friendly, the venue spotless... More

I love their make it yourself salads. They also have a good meat section. It's fairly basic but often just what I want in casual dining.

I like the tri tip sandwich. Last time though very skimpy on the meat. I know beef prices are sky high but this was ridiculous. Not a big meat eater but come on Jack!

I had an early breakfast here at the airport. I ordered the hot oatmeal. For like $7 I got a small coffee cup full of dry oatmeal with no milk? Whassup with that? Tasted like cardboard and served on cardboard. Not good.

It's convenient fast and consistent. The food is great for a price that is slightly more than a fast food meal--you really can't beat it anywhere in town for quality and value.
