If you've never been to a Jake's you should try it. I think the burgers are the best. Definitely better than your typical fast food places.

We went for lunch. Probably should have not gone at all. Ok... so was you can see by the picture a small shake is like a kids size drink from McDonald's. Not enough to enjoy and eat with your food. Now the food. Oh if...More

I love that everything is made to order and you can customize your burger however you like it. Food is always fresh, hot and tasty. So much better than fast food.

We loved this cute place like diners of the 50's! They have shakes, burgers, hot dogs and salads. Clean and quiet. I had chili cheese coney and a mint Oreo shake! Perfect!

The burgers are good but not the best. Better than other fast food places I won't mention but doesn't take much to find a better burger.

Not bad burgers. Nothing over the top. Defiantly much better then any fast food restaurant and milkshakes are good but they are expensive. I prefer Shake Shake but jakes is defiantly the best option in this area.
