This is their specialty and they are mouthwatering good! My favorite is the Jakeburger which is a double with everything on it. Good onion rings too and great old-fashioned milkshakes and malt shakes made with real milk - they are the real deal. They also have salads and really good chili dogs.

Kitche 50s decor with real malteds, shakes, and super burgers cooked to order. The fries the shakes, like a trip back in time when every town had a malt shop. Locally owned all that;s missing is Fonz

A decent place to go for some burgers. With ok service . Burgers seem to be consistent while the help seems to be inconsistent usually good but sometimes struggles. Generally, we have a good time there but it is an eat and get out of there kind of place.

Burgers feels like something right out of your own kitchen but better. Tastes amazing and simply a burger joint feel to the restaurant. Hidden gem buried in a plaza not easily seen by the main road. If you like a good quick burger- put it on your list of destinations.

Good food, fast service and made right in front of you. Brought to your table hot and fresh. Don't be in a real hurry, since it's made as you order. You won't regret the burger experience. Family's welcome

Good made to order cheeseburger and fries, similar price to 5 guys. It is made to order, so I'm not sure about people's complaint about slow service.

Clean and service is average. Expensive for what you get. Would not recommend eating there all the time unless you have money to burn.

I placed my order for their October special only to find out they were out of the pretzel bun. If this is your special of the month, shouldn't you plan in advance for more buns? I think that their menu is a little pricey. Don't think I'll be a regular customer.

My family has eaten at Jake's a few times. Consistently, they're average. While consistency is good in a restaurant, there's room for improvement. The burger patties are clearly handmade, but they fall well short of filling the bun. Speaking of the bun, on a recent visit, it was ice-cold! Clearly, it was wasn't warmed on the grill before serving. The... More

This place is a lot like five guys except better. Friendly staff and great burgers made the way you want. I have never had bad food from here and have enjoyed everything I have got. Sure when compared to a mcdonalds this place is a bit pricey but face it the quality of food is about 1,000 times better or... More
