Love love love the Cod sandwich. I know, who eats fish at a burger joint. It was sooo good I'm probably headed there now. Cod is dropped fresh to order. Onion rings were a little too breaded but still tasty. They charge for an array of sauces. Prices were decent a lil high, but it is better quality.

After leaving a meeting at 7 pm, facing a 45 minute trip home, I was hungry and willing to cheat big time on my usual healthy diet. So I stopped off at Jake's Way-Back Burgers. It was as good as I remembered! I skipped the healthy sounding salad options and went for a single burger prepared after I ordered and... More

Jake's is a Delaware based chain that prides itself on fresh ingredients and made-to-order burgers, chicken sandwiches, and dogs. They also specialize in milk shakes. In fact every week they have a special shake and burger not on the standard menu. This visit, the burger was a Sriracha burger. Everything including the bun seemed to be infused with hot sauce....

We like this place because the burgers taste like homemade. Not your average frozen patties. The shakes are good to. Give it a try!

A below average Jakes. I guess I got spoiled at the Smyrna Location on East Glenwood Ave. This place is a little dumpy and a little dirty. I ordered some onion rings and there were not as many as I get in Smyrna. Next time I will just go to Smyrna.

we stopped after seeing the Wayback burgers logo and were incredibly disappointed! It's not like the other franchise locations, kinda think it's still being run by the old Jakes people

It was o.k, nothing to get excited about. A little too expensive for me. Almost $30.00 for 2 burgers, a hot dog, 3 drinks and fries with onion rings. I had to wipe our seat and table clean. Did not try shakes so can't say anything about those. At least I can say we tried it.

We were regulars at Jake's up in New Castle, and were excited when they finally came to Dover. However , after a few trips down to our local Jakes, we noticed the quality just was not there anymore - one of our last trips, my wifes burger was barely Medium Rare (vice Medium Well/Well as they usually cook them) when...
