We loved this cute place like diners of the 50's! They have shakes, burgers, hot dogs and salads. Clean and quiet. I had chili cheese coney and a mint Oreo shake! Perfect!

The burgers are good but not the best. Better than other fast food places I won't mention but doesn't take much to find a better burger.

Not bad burgers. Nothing over the top. Defiantly much better then any fast food restaurant and milkshakes are good but they are expensive. I prefer Shake Shake but jakes is defiantly the best option in this area.

We do like the food! The staff is super friendly and the service is prompt and courteous. for a family of 5 we can't eat here for less than about $75 when everyone gets what they want. So we don't go here often

My daughter, her friend & I went to Jake's after shopping. We all had their large shakes & loved them. The staff was flexible & funny because I created my own flavored shake by combining 2 they have & it worked. The teens loved their shakes & we waddled out happily.

By chance we were just driving around and the sign absolutely grabbed us...hey, cool name...let's go in and see what's "Wayback" about it! Well...after ordering and devouring an Octoberfest burger (fresh meat/ sauerkraut/muenster cheese/onions) and a super chocolate malt served in the ol' time tin mixing can. Yes, this is not fast food...just great food! Will certainly only go to... More

Food is very good. Nice selection. Everything I had was delicious. Staff was pleasant and got my food in a timely manner. Definitely overpriced. If you want to try it for the food fine. If your just looking for a good burger hit some tavern on Burger Night.

Ate here two times. Like their burgers and shakes. Curious to see someone attempt the 9 patty "Triple Triple". Their fries are average. Onion rings pretty good. Had a coffee shake which had a pretty mild flavor, and one of their churro shakes which was good and reminded me of eggnog. Shakes do take a while but seemed reasonable for... More
