The restaurant goes to great lengths to provide a menu of organic and allergen-free (gluten, lactose, etc.) Selections. Using a variety of homemade fillings, toppings, and sauces, Jacketz provides the opportunity for you to create your own unique and personalized combinations...Or to choose from popular menu combinations (such as the Chicken Salad Melt with freshly baked bacon, or the Jacketz filled with Green Veggies, tartar sauce, and mixed nuts). A true value, Jacketz provides a fresh, organic and satisfying meal to you on a daily basis from 12:00-22:00. We look forward to sharing with you.

“Simply amazing and quickly prepared dinner”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Well, if you happen to be a potato lover, just like myself, then there is no better place to go to!
Jacketz has quite some variety in what they prepare and they continuously keep trying new things. I have tried almost their entire menu so far and never had anything I wouldn't enjoy! Also some of the greatest things I have ever tried, I also ate here.
The nicest part about it is the price you pay, because it is so low for what you get.
It is not the regular restaurant, more like a quick "grab-a-bite" thing, but it is definitely worth going to. You don't know what you're missing!

“Tasty Gluten free vegetarian options in Leiden!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We've been going to this food outlet for about three years. It's very unusual as its a jacket potato place so there's no reliance on bread, the norm for lunch in The Netherlands. The food is also very veggie friendly.

“more like average plus .. between average and very good”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

A small, casual, friendly place in the center of Leiden. On the plus side: a nice break from usual options, friendly staff, reasonably quick service, menu/service in clear English. On the down side, while the potatoes are large, the topping options are rather limited; the topping I had (chili con carne) was only OK; the "meat" of the potato had been removed and "blended" somehow (I would have preferred it more au naturale.

“Big tasty portions, small prices”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

This small joint just off the downtown core serves big jacket potatoes and salads that you can customize. Beware, the whole potato is HUGE and probably amenable to sharing among 2 people; it's possible to ask for a 1/2 potato and still get all the toppings. They have great combinations (BLT with pesto and honey mustard was delicious), the atmosphere is very chill and the price unbeatable.

“Tasty, healthy and generous”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Small, casual place where to find big stuffed potatoes at a very reasonable price. Tasty food, nice presentation and friendly staff. As a local resident, it is one of my frequent choices.
