We went for lunch, and there were a lot of choices. I had a salad and there were some great ones to choose from. On in our party had the burger and it looked great, and was cooked just right. Service was pretty slow, and they were not that busy. The atmosphere is kind of funky. (old train car).

Jax is a very good place to eat. The servers are nice and the food delicious. My only issue was i had the eggs benedict and the english muffin was over-cooked and the hollandaise sauce balnd. Other than that, its a place i know i can get good food from.

Stepping inside this classic dinner was a positive sign. Because of the off hour, we were seated immediately. My chili cheese burger was generous and delicious. The potato salad was some of the best I've had. The dill crusted fish sandwich got approving nods, as did the shrimp and crab Louie. Our server couldn't have been friendlier.

Let me start by saying I'm a bed and breakfast owner and am quite critical when it comes to breakfast entrees. If you love seafood, order the crab cake Benedict made on homemade English muffins. Service was great. Cute diner.

Diners, Drive-ins and Dives TV show suggested trying this Diner out. We were really pretty disappointed with the food and the service. Just average to slightly below average, nothing to suggest to others we know. Service was Ok, they basically forgot us after delivering our food.

Food was good but a bit pricey.Approx 85 dollars for 4 of us for burgers and drinks. Love the decor. Servers were friendly but took forever for food to be served and restaurant was not very busy. We went for a late dinner around 9 pm.

Stopped here for breakfast on the way out of vacation at Donner. Free parking in the adjacent parking lot until 10:00 am is a huge bonus. Parking in downtown Truckee is absolutely brutal and being able to pull right in and get the early bird discount was welcomed. Staff is really friendly and the place has a great vibe. Breakfast...

After a long day of traveling we were looking for something that felt like a homemade meal. We found it at Jax's. The customer service was lacking, having to physically get up and find a waiter or waitress for assistance. My husband ordered filet mignon and it wasn't cooked as he liked it, but they exchanged it. I had chicken... More
