They have their tried and true customers but I thought the food overrated and the workers a bit rude. Too many other better choices in area.

Stopped in for a late lunch. Burgers are fresh made so you have to wait but it is worth is as they taste very good. More expensive than McDonalds but so worth it.

My first time at Jack's Old Fashion Hamburgers was in 1972 and I've been going there ever since. Besides the excellent beef they use, they have a smorgasbord of toppings so you can make your hamburger taste exactly how you want. I've been to other places who rave about their hamburgers but I keep going back to Jacks as you... More

Jacks was here before most of the upscale burger places like 5 Guys, BurgerFi, and so many more. They make their own patties and the blend of beef they serve is flavorful and much better than the fast food joints at roughly the same prices. For an old-time delicious burger try Jacks. It is a local tradition in the Fort... More

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.
