“Wonderful!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Jack's is the place for a great hot dog. My favorite is the one with the bleu-cheese slaw. The food is delicious and the servings are ample for the price.

“Hot dogs- Inexpensive and delicious”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Who would have thought that hot dogs could be unique? Jack's has done it! Their menu varies from vegan hot dogs, to hot dogs with all sorts of toppings (chili, sweet potato mustard, chili, blue cheese slaw, etc), plus moonpies, home-made fries, Coke in old-fashioned glass bottles, milkshakes, and sandwiches! Two people can easily eat there for $10.

“If you like hot dogs, you have to try Jack's. If you don't like 'em skip Jack's!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

On their "what we believe" page, Google says "Do one thing, and do it really well." The creator and owner of Jack's must be cut from the same cloth.

Jack's is not an old restaurant, but when you visit, you will feel that you've stepped back in time to an old traditional hot dog shop from the 70's.

What's good about Jack's? The ambiance. The food ingredients are all top quality from the all beef dogs and pepperidge farm buns to the high quality toppings. The service is friendly and fast. You (and the kids) can have soda pop in a glass bottle. There are about 25 different ways to have a hot dog. Shoestring fries are cooked just right and there are plenty of them.

What's not as good? Depending on your point of view, there really isn't much else to eat except hot dogs / sausages and fries. If you don't like hot dogs, you'll be disappointed by the menu so don't go there thinking, "I'll just order something else." There isn't anything else for you to order. The crowds. This is a very popular shop at lunch time. Come early, or you won't be able to get a seat and might wait 20 minutes or longer just to get your food to go from the counter. Also, at lunch time the parking lot fills up completely. Go early or later and you'll have a much more pleasant experience.

“If you can't a hot dog you like here...you never will!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

There is every possible topping for their fabulous hot dogs! Of all things, I loved their hot dog bun! You can also get sausages which sound wonderful--on my list to try next time. Highly recommend their milkshakes -- homemade like the good ol' days! This is a MUST STOP for anybody in town -- but get there early as it gets super crowded!
