“Good Food - Good Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

I have been for lunch at Uncle Jakes Restaurant several times and have always been pleased with the cleanliness, friendly service and food quality. The cafeteria style creates a relaxed atmosphere. There are always lunch specials to complement the regular menu items. If you have a real sweet tooth, try their fresh baked cinnamon buns -- but plan to share! They are big and sweet!

“Awful food. Awful Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

You really have two options at Uncle Jakes: Order deep fried food, or order food that has been sitting on a grill for hours, waiting to be ordered. If you order breakfast, you are getting hashbrowns that are burnt and hard and inedible. Your bacon will be like leather. Your eggs will probably be raw and your toast will be cold. It's the same story for most things there. And if bad food isn't enough, the girl who works the grill is awful! She doesn't even greet you...she just grabs her paper and pen and stares at you until you've decided what you want to eat.

This is all based off of several visits there, over the last 4 years that I've lived in Steinbach. I'll give them one thing: they are consistent in their awfulness!!

Their only redeeming quality is their soup, which is (usually) quite good. Other than that...avoid this place if you can. There are much better places in town to visit!!!

“Not worth it”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

Went for Breakfast on a Saturday. Eggs Sausage and Toast were of average quality if you were paying $4 but at $8 I expected more. Note that the coupon in the Entertainment Book does not apply to the $6 breakfast special and you are charged the full $8 price. Coffee service comes with the breakfast but the coffee tastes bad and water is the better choice.

“Convenient lication and good home cooking!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

Good food. It's in the Clearspring Mall. So, if you're out shopping and want some non-fast food but a quick meal this is a great choice. The food is made to order. They usually have a daily special. They have soup, breakfast and great sandwiches. Check it out. It's cafeteria style. Take a tray, choose your drink, order your meal, take your number, pay, sit down. They bring your food right to your table. Coffee refill is free.

“Poor Quality Fast Food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

The restaurant is located in the Clearspring Mall in Steinbach. Meals are fried, greasy and thrown together with little care. For example, there is more batter than there is fish inside the deep fried batter. There are no free refills on drinks. Staff appear unhappy to be there and are not challenged by the very limited menu - not a great place to have a meal but okay for a cup of coffee while shopping.
