Found this burger place by chance and they make an excellent burger . Not much of a variety in the menu, but the burger they offer tastes delicious , burgers are filling and tasty! Friendly staff and reasonable prices.

The food is good but you had better be selective. It is not cheap but the ribs are some of the best. BBQ is about sauce and these people do it right.

So I have tried a few BBQ places here in Saigon. I finally found my favorite. Jake's.....The ribs were perfect had a great smoke flavor. And cooked perfect, fall of the bone. The Pulled Pork was excellent. My wife had the Blue Cheese Burger. So in tasting that. Amazing. You want a real American burger this is the place. And... More

This American themed small restaurant is a great place for great comfort food. The smoked ribs are their specialty but the soup and potato salad is also quite special. I tried the hamburger and pulled pork sandwich - all like back home. And the beer is good too....

We went for dinner as in need of some "western" food after our two week holiday. The food is fantastic and the staff very friendly and service good. I would thoroughly recommend Jakes.

Not really sure how to put this into words, but I will give it a shot. Jake brought a smoker from America and it is sitting right in front of his restaurant. I am pretty sure that I seen a heavenly halo floating above it last night. The restaurant itself is not huge, but plenty big for lots of friends... More

Our group had an amazing experience at Jakes, I would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a little (massive) taste of America. Jake took us through the menu and we had a good chat about the history of the restaurant and the food; he clearly has a great passion for great bbq food. It is more expensive than others but...

We had the St Louis Spare Ribs and the BBQ Pork with Fries, Slaw, Mac & Cheese and Corn as sides. It was all remarkably average, fairly bland BBQ and the fries were really over salted. Beer selection was poor, just loads of lagers and no local craft beers. It wouldn't be too bad but when the bill comes to... More
