From when you walk in the juke box is playing the burgers are made to order and you choose your fixings. The burgers were fantastic and the place felt like I went back in time to the 70's from the lighting, to the paneling, and the music - a nostalgic feel

Jack's is one of the oldest hamburger joints in Fort Lauderdale and is a consistently wonderful local place. The hamburgers are freshly ground and rare is no problem here unlike burger fi or five guys or the like. There is a topping bar where you can smother your burger in sauces and pile high with pickles, onions, jalapeños and more.... More

I have been going to Jack's for 14 plus years. I am a fan of their hamburgers. Cooked to order and juicy. Great French fries and plenty of refills on drinks.

Excellent hamburgers in counter service restaurant. Very clean. Friendly staff. Not fancy - just great burgers at a lower price than the newer joints.

My family and I have patronized Jack's since 1978, almost as long as it's been in business. But you'd better REALLY want a hamburger or cheeseburger! In nearly 40 years of eating at Jack's I have NEVER seen anyone order any of the other menu items (there are four or five). There are free fresh condiments, including relish, onions, pickles,...

Wow. I've never had fries that bland and dry. The burger was a grease fire waiting to happen. Don't light a match near a burger!!!!! The burger was completely without a hint of spice, salt, pepper or taste. To all of the reviewers that say this is the greatest, it's time to try some place new. There are a few... More

Just a great burger served fresh on a toasted roll. No fuss, no muss, just what you expect for that burger craving.

I love this place for a great, basic burger. Ordering is fast and turnaround of your order is fast, even though it's made to order. You can taste the difference in the quality of fresh burger - their claim to fame. Then, you get to 'fix' it your way with the relish, pickles, onions, ketchup, mustard, etc. Very consistent and...
