Jack Browns is a great place to go with one or two other people as seating is pretty limited to the bar, at least inside. The burgers are pretty wild when it comes to toppings! They are very creative. They have a daily special and...More

We came for lunch. Saw on four square. Didn’t realize it was such a hot spot. 40 minute wait so we sat at the bar. Sat right away. We had cowboy burgers. Amazing. Can’t wait to go back. Service quick and amazing. Loved it.

We had the best experience here! We sat on the patio even though it was a little chilly. Our waiter Alex was so wonderful and brought us a few blankets. Drinks were great! We were just passing through but wish we could have stayed longer.

We stopped here on our road trip from Florida to Maryland for dinner. JMU students had just returned back to school so there were many college kids walking around and many having dinner. We were told there would be 10 minute wait but it was...More

Don't leave without the fried oreos. May as well double up the first time as you'll want another anyway. My health nut wife even wanted another:)
