We love this place! Great variety and the salsa bar is awesome! I almost always get the Burrito Fresco with extra guacamole. So good! We eat in buy often carry out.

Grande Jake's is a great place for takeaway or a sit-down meal. The food is reasonably priced and the portions are healthy. They have a large variety of dishes and also have a mix of different salsas (eight or so, if I recall correctly) to go with your chips if you are dining in. The staff is very helpful and... More

It's a good place for Mexican dinning, especially for a take out place. It is very reasonably priced and the food came out very fast.

Didn't really enjoy. Food did not have much distinctive Mexican flavor. Didn't find any of my favorites that I enjoyed

I personally did not care for this location. But my wife liked it so we go. I found the food to be mediocre. And the atmosphere was nothing

My friends and I have become regulars at Grande Jake's in Buffalo Grove. The food is good, the service is good, but the friendly environment makes this a great neighborhood place that people come back to. The bottomless colorful warm tortilla chips with your choice of delicious salsa from the salsa bar are delicious and they help add to the... More

While Grande Jakes is certainly not fancy, it is great food. We enjoyed all of the dishes we ordered. The warm chips are great along with the salsa bar. There is a salsa for every taste. We ordered the tacos, which they made just the way we wanted. There are so many choices and combinations you can create. We also... More
