Well, being from Chicago was looking forward to going to a place that has a "Chicago" style menu. Very disappointed. First of all $4.50 for a Chicago dog, and $9 for an Italian beef sandwich! Expensive, especially when it wasn't that good. The Chicago dog was small. The Italian beef was nothing "Italian". The aujus was nothing but beef broth... More

I'm really sorry to hear you weren't satisfied with the Chicago style food. Out Italian beef and au jus sauce, is fontanini brand, straight from Chicago. Our hot dogs are authentic Vienna beef. I've got my prices the lowest I can. We also offer a rewards program that I hope you're a part of. I hope you give us another... More

My husband and I love this place! It's like a taste of home for me, which is Michigan. I lived right between Chicago and Detroit and Chicago dogs, gyros, burgers and fries are a big deal! They are the only place I know in Jacksonville that serves real gyros off a spit, not that thin frozen gyro meat you see... More

The only place in Jacksonville to eat a great Gyro. Friendly family owned Restaurant, well worth the visit if you're visiting Camp Lejeune or the Jacksonville area. One of the Mom and Pop shops I always look for. Great Grill

It is an ok hotdog place, but pricy for a dog. I will find a cheaper place next time I am in the mood for a dog

...The food and atmosphere are better when the owner is in. My husband and I went to Jesse's the other day to see if it would be better this time than the last-- and it was-- because the owner was in. The first time we ate there three employees (an older, stocky woman who was doing deliveries and two young... More

Friendly staff and great food. Love that they have toys for kids to play with while you wait for your food. Looks like a small business and many employees looked very young like college and high school students but they made everything to order and everything came to us hot and we'll presented. Our son usually takes forever to eat... More

Friendly service with fresh pita bread. No great ambiance as it is cluttered. Good place to have a sandwich and read the paper

They had some of the best gyros I've had in years. The wait for the food was a little long, but I think it was worth it. Will definitely eat there again when in Jacksonville!

Food wasn't bad, but get it to go. The ac wasn't working at all and it was way to hot to try and enjoy a meal there. The staff looked miserable as well. Sad
