“We second the Yumminess”
Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

Driving through Middletown as we do a few times a year on the way to visit family, we had a craving for burgers. Not fast food burgers but a place that specialized in freshly made hamburgers. Enter Jake's. Simple atmosphere, friendly, young staff and an interesting, but not over the top menu board with choices like turkey dinner burgers and pumpkin shakes. While we were more conservative in our choices, everything was fresh and I must say that the garden burger was one of the tastiest I've had.

“Good burgers and shakes.”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Hamburgers are freshly made. Sides like fries and freshly made potato chips are nice, and the milk shakes are for real.

“Overpriced”
Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

First ordered online. Arrived there a half hour later and they haven't even started making it. Milkshakes are always good. Burgers are ok but definitely not worth the almost $5 dollar price tag. You can get a better burger for a lot cheaper. Not a big fan.

“Great food!”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

When you walk in the door at Jake's, you feel like you've stepped back in time into an 1950's diner. It's not as pronounced as when you go to Johnny Rockets, but the food is better. I love the burgers, chicken sandwiches, and milkshakes here. If you want a burger and fries in town, this is the place to go!

“Great Milkshakes top it off”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

Love this place, it has it all. Great hamburgers and fries. Want something different try their
other burgers; turkey burger or gardenburger! They also have chicken various ways and even
hot dogs and grilled cheese.

Everyone will be happy and find what they want.

The milkshakes are too die for!
