If you like to eat at diners, try Jake's. You can't beat the daily blue plate special for an inexpensive delicious meal. They have traditional diner food but also other healthier choices. For example, with my blue plate special,for veggies I chose grilled asparagus and a house salad. We liked it so much, we went back for breakfast the next... More

Jake's is located across the street from the Holiday Inn in Greensboro, NC. The restaurant has a steady flow of customers and I thought to give it a go after working. I took advantage of the drive thru and ordered breakfast to go. In less than 10 minutes, I had scrambled eggs, a short stack, hash browns, links, bacon &... More

Convenient location. Ample seating. We had the Hassel burgers and a basket of hot homemade chips. The hassel sauce was a wonderful combination of sweet and tangy, not over powering the taste of the beef, but accentuating it. Our waitress was extremely knowledgable, helpful and personable. Open 24 hours, a good place for a good meal, reasonably priced.

Couldn't sleep, so we went out for a snack. Found Jake's diner. We had a great meal and service was wonderful. Very friendly! We also could not believe the low price of our food. We will go back!

Well for me starters, Diet Mt. Dew! Ribey from the grill, crispy fries and fresh coleslaw was perfect for my wife. For me it was chuck steak, crispy fries and a side salad. Of course Brown gravy for the fries.

Some friends from Greensboro recommended this place for breakfast. They characterized it as a no frills diner with good food. The diner itself is just average and feels a little dated. Seems like it needs renovation and was just passable on the cleanliness scale. We had 3 people serving us and we were never really sure who our actual waitress/waiter... More

I have eaten here on multiple occasions both dine-in and takeout. I have always gotten great tasting food, especially breakfast. The staff, from waitresses to cashiers are warm, welcoming and inviting and check back often with fresh coffee and to fulfill your needs. I pass several restaurants that serve breakfast all day but this one is my preference!

This is located right off the highway which makes it a great place to stop on the way through Greensboro. Service was good. They serve typical diner food. I had eggs, bacon, hash browns, biscuit and gravy. The gravy was supposed to have sausage in it but if so, it was very ground up.
