They have burgers but they told me I could not have a choice on how its cooked. She said they cook them all well done. The sides and burger fixings are fine, but I won't return as I prefer my burger to be moist and...More

After a reception we were looking for a quick and filling meal. This restaurant was right across the street from our hotel. Walked in and it was not crowded. Service was quick and the mushroom and Swiss burger was very good. Nothing fancy here just...More

Nice place on main street; just off Sundance square. Came for happy hour drinks and were not disappointed with the place or the staff. Place became busy as the evening wore on; with families and couples. Nice place, worth visiting.

If you are looking for a Burger Joint than this is it. Small and informal but the food is good. Friends said the roll was delicious but you can also get your burger on a salad if you chose. Don't skip the onion rings, excellent.

You always know when there is a line that this is the place to eat. We enjoyed the food - but the highlight was the sweet potato fries! It was more of a dessert than a side!

Hubby wanted a burger so we spotted Jakes. We were seated and then had to wait an additional 10 minutes before we were greeted by our server (it was NOT busy). Once greeted, the server was nice but a customer should never have to wait...More

Went into Jakes hoping for some great burgers. It was a typical burger and even greasier than I would have expected. Our waitperson was pleasant but we never saw her. We went an entire meal on 1 glass of water each. Will not go back.

Nominated "Best Burger In Dallas" by NBC DFW and many others. You'll enjoy our friendly staff, ice cold beer & burgers. Jakes Uptown is a true local Texas Tradition of "Burgers, Beer and Atmosphere" since 1985. Henry James said once "it takes an endless amount of history to make even a little tradition" and we've made more than a few burgers, served a lot more than a few beers, and we've hosted more than a few parties.
