I just moved here from Alabama and was hoping to find a place that served a great cheeseburger like we had back home. You know, one of those hole-in-the-wall type places that just knocks your socks off. Well, I found it at Jack's. I tried the patty melt and ordered the house-made potato chips with BBQ spices on them. I... More

I ordered online, not that I will ever do it again. You would think that ordering online is an advantage, but I was wrong. When I arrived it seemed to me that they don't pay attention to how the orders are placed. People who arrived after me got there food before me. I was told online that my order would... More

This Jake's is pretty good in terms of food. We like the burgers, fries and shakes. The shakes are the best around. I like them over any of the fast food places. Plus I like that you can order a junior size shake. Fries are good...not great, but good. I have a feeling them are frozen. The burgers are great...never... More

I have been coming to Jakes for years. They make their burgers from fresh ground meat (not frozen like other places). They have also expanded their menu. If you want a great burger, stop in to the one nearest you, they are all over.

The burgers here are fresh and choices of toppings are abundant. If you are not super hungry, only get the jr burger, the small fries also are ALOT to handle

Very good Hamburger with lots of choices to top it off, reasonable prices, juicy, non greasy, great homemade "chips". Not a fast food chain, it does take a few minutes to get your burger. The seating is very simple, basic atmosphere.

I liked Jake's burgers both times I went. The first time was at the one on rt. 13 in New Castle, and the second was the one off of Kirkwood Highway. I liked their burgers both times.

I'm local to Newark, DE but until yesterday, never tried "Jakes" before. There are of at least 3 locations that I know of - Route 273 in Newark, Rt 13 in New Castle and Rt 2 on Kirkwood Hwy in Wilmington. We went into the one on Rt 13. When we walked up the stairs, I noticed a large deck... More
