Lots of good food for very reasonable price. Excellent value and tasty food, not gourmet, just good ole grub. Service is up and down, but it's not that kind of place, it's about cheap, good and reasonable food and tasty.

Hungry Jacks has won a lot of deserving awards in the past, but that was then, this is now. Service at Jacks is severely lacking, they prefer to do the minimum amount and don't even check to make sure things are fine and inquire as to whether you need something else.
The food is still tasty though, but the menu remains the same.
Jack also shows a lot of arrogance, closing whenever he feels like it, closes during busy times in town while he goes on vacation etc, yet he expects the crowds to flock back when he returns. I am not surprised to find it less than half full at lunch time these days.

We are very sorry to hear that you where not happy with us on your recent visit. During busy times we are not always able to return to ask if you require anything else. We do hope that if you are in need of something, or that if something is not to your liking that you would bring it to our attention. If not then we can only assume that everything is to your liking.
As far as showing arrogance in closing early and taking time off, we work to our posted hours. As a family run business we work a minimum of 60 hours a week to run our cafe. Although our hours are 7am - 2pm (ish) 6 days a week, many many more hours are involved in running a cafe during non operational time. Most days we work from 6am until 4pm, cleaning and preping. On the other days we are there until much later with purchasing and stocking. We choose our closing times to suit the productive times of our business.
We have taken 10 years of experience to know when is cost effective for us to open and close. This helps us to keep our costs down for the customers as we are not wasting revenue on staff etc. during quiet times. We also find it very important to be home for our children after school.
As to your issue with us taking vacations, we too are entitled to some time off. This is never taken lightly as we, like others whom are self employed do not get vacation pay. We have a family and this must come first. As with most families, we too enjoy spending time together. The fact that we run a cafe should not mean that this is not allowed. We do not "expect crowds to flock" we never have. We work hard to earn those customers and are completely aware that without them we have nothing. We do are utmost to offer good food, value, quality and service to each of our customers and strive to continue to do so. We are not a large franchised business that cares only about profits. We run our cafe with our heart and put our family and the families of our employees first.

Glad you noticed the local....we try to keep everything as local as we can. Our chickens are from Enderby (can't get much more local lol) and our coffee is the wonderful Cherry Hill Coffee in Kelowna...simply the best ;) Thanks and we really hope you get back to us soon.

My family and I eat here often, they have the best food from early morning to lunch. Great prices and big enough portions to fill my hungry hubby every time. I love the fresh baked goodies, the banoffe pie is my favorite! Great atmosphere, wonderful people and yummy food.
