we have a jack's about to open in san mateo, so i suggested to our group that we go to the jack's in san bruno!
i'm very glad i did and my group of friends agreed. it was the first time visit for four out of five of us. and, except for the excessive noise level, it was a most pleasant experience.
2 had the fish and chips. i tasted hubby's fish/chips and it was very good. i'm not always a fish/chips fan cause of the deep fry batter, but these fish pieces (loin cod) had very delicate breading, if you can even call it 'breading.' the accompanying cole slaw was good, a bit different, but good. ditto with the fries. the friend who had also ordered the fish/chips, loved it, just about licked her plate.
my pasta pomodoro was scrumptious. light, delicious, perfect.
the friend who ordered the fried chicken was more than a bit happy over her selection. and the friend who ordered the blackened catfish was happy with her selection.
our server was "G$" - he was awesome. friendly, answered questions, didn't rush us, was totally cool. hope he'll be moving to the san bruno location!!
the menu was quite varied - sure to please everyone. prices were a bit high, i thought. i was glad that my pasta was about the 'cheapest' item on the menu at $8.95. the fish and chips were $14.95...kinda high, i thought.
we met for dinner at 6pm, and the volume of noise from conversation of people trying to talk over the noise was deafening.
i would go either super early for dinner, or try it at lunch time.
can't wait for jack's to open in san mateo!
