“It's a great diner”
Reviewed August 8, 2012 via mobile

If you want a true diner experience you gotta go to Jakes. The breakfast is outta sight. I had steak and eggs the steak was well cooked and the eggs were cooked right. This is a true breakfast joint 24 hours a day. They have a 96.5 A rating by the health dept.

“One of the things we miss about Greensboro...”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

We went to Jake's so often that by the time we made it to a table, the waitress usually had our drinks ready for us and asked us if we wanted the usual. LOL This place is always open and always hopping...especially during breakfast, lunch, and a popular eating place for the after bar crowd. You will find every level of character in there from the biker to the business man. Everyone knows it's a good place to eat. Their pancakes melt in your mouth, the coffee and sweet tea are always spot on, and the service is some of the best in town. We moved back to my home state of Colorado and often talk about how we wish we could go to Jake's to eat. Funny thing is, we miss the staff as much as the food. :(

“Good family restaurant”
Reviewed May 4, 2012

If you are staying at any of the hotels in the area, skip the hotel breakfast and the Waffle House, and walk over to this restaurant. Service is friendly and the food is great. This diner has received multiple awards.

“Great breakfast”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Great place to go for brakfast. The food was good and the menu had plenty to pick from. I had the fried bologna and eggs, yummy. The other members of my family had eggs and bacon and they said it was very good. Their biscuits are nice and fluffy.

Reviewed April 3, 2012

Out of a lot of foods; foods received were not impressive; waitress was not attentive; just overall not worth it.
