choice of 3 sizes- chili and fries as sides- limited choices. they fry the patty that is made on premises. Wish they would add onion rings or something- they have chili and grilled cheese- ham and cheese all grilled of course

An original from Ft. Lauderdale's past. Enjoy an old fashioned hamburger, and great milkshakes. Fries are great and plentiful. Skip the Mc D and the King.

My type of burger is thick, juicy, a bit dark on the outside and med rare in the center. These burgers taste like thin frozen burgers. I can appreciate a fast food burger as well, but these also lack in taste. Please try it. I hope you can prove me wrong.

So we stopped here because everybody wanted a burger. And it was a good place to eat. Burgers were down well, extras were available. It wasn't crowded. Counter people were friendly.

I meet friends here often, and find the food is "okay." Have I had better burgers, of course, but, it's a meeting place. On my last visit, I was disappointed with the small amount of fries, especially for what they charge. Just one less item to order next time.

This is the epitome of comfort food. Because, as everyone knows, when you gotta have a burger nothing else will quite do. Jack's has great burgers! Very simple menu with burgers (with or without cheese), a few sandwiches, fries, shakes and drinks. That's it! I got the 1/2 # Burger with fries and a soda. It was like $10. It... More

Not as good as the last time I was there. Better than all the fast food burgers but not like a rare restaurant burger. Great old time place, very nice people. Decent fresh made burger and hope it's better next time.

A local favorite for burgers. But don't miss out on some of their other menu items. Their Grilled Ham with double cheese or Chili Cheese Fries are just as tasty.
