Jack's is known for their burgers and shakes. Made fresh to order every time. Staff is friendly and you can sit outside. Great spot for a quick eat before a movie or lunch.

Not bad ... but nothing special. Very good if you're downtown Santa Cruz and need a quick burger. Giving it three stars is not a knock on the place ... just calling it like it is. I would visit again if I needed a quick...More
