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.

I just love their hamburgers, I have been a fan of their food for over 30 years now and have turned many friends who also love their food too onto Jacks.

I have been eating here since I was a kid. It still maintains that nostalgic feel. Great burgers...this isn't some fad fly by night burger joint with 20 dollar burgers rather it's the best priced burger joint in Lauderdale and the staff is always friendly and welcoming. Great burger. Best Value. Great People. What other place grinds their meat everyday... More

Food was ok they charge you for EVERYTHING etc lettuce and tomato!!??? Price was good but I've had better burgers. Person who took out orders didn't really explain the menu so we kinda just had to figure it all out and go with what sounded good.

Thank sflores10
