“Great atmosphere, delightful server, and wonderful food!”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Met my friends from Reno here, I live in Grass Valley. Had never heard of it and we were more tha pleasantly surprised. Our server, Rosie, made it an exceptional day, as we were celebrating many life events. Our food was great, they kept the coffee coming, and were able to recommend good meals. Would definitely return! Parking was also easy, right next door. One street off the main drag.

“Didn't live up to expectation”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

I'm not sure what I was expecting, but this was just pretty much average diner fare. This diner was recommended by one of the locals and was also known by family as being on Diner's, Drive- ins and Dives. That said. The milkshakes seemed to be the hit of the night. They came out in classic tall milkshake glasses with whipped cream swirled around the top of the straw. Impressive! Unfortunately that was it on impressive. Pretty much the menu was over priced sandwiches and burgers and not much more. The plates looked good, but the food was not remarkable. As far as the restaurants in Truckee, they all seemed to be quite pricey so Jax may have been in line on their prices. We had a second trip back to Truckee but looked for somewhere else to eat.

“Food o.k. but just”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Food here is "diner" which is probably what you went for. Sometimes quite good and other times quite unacceptable. Once so salty I couldn't eat it. Try the salads or soup and salad.

“Good Food on the Tracks”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

I really like Jax, especially with my kids. The only issue I have is that it takes a really long time to get your food, regardless of whether it is crowded or practically empty.
