First time at Jake's and will be back for sure. Had Jake's 1/2 pound cheeseburger and it was in the top 5 burgers ever. Family had the BBQ and ribs and was awesome. Friendly waitress and just felt welcomed. A+++

We have eaten here a few times on vacations. It's good food and good service. The ribs are off the bone lip smacking good, the grilled chicken salad is a nice substantial meal as well.

This BBQ restaurant has to be one of the best we have eaten at. Everything was fresh and tasted so good. The bbq chicken and brisket basically melted in your mouth. I would highly suggest eating here and the service was great too. Very clean!
