The Elkton location is now closed. The owners are looking for a new location but there is no ETA. We did enjoy Jake's when it was here. Reliable burgers and shakes.

After leaving another restaurant hungry and dissatisfied we came here because all my daughter wanted was a good cheeseburger. I was pleasantly surprised by the experience I had here.

It was my first time there, but it was pretty good. I really enjoyed my burger and fries. Somewhere different to go besides McDs and BK.

The title pretty much says it. I would not go there for any kind of special event but for a quick lunch and place to talk it works fine.

Jake's Wayback Burgers are a blast from the past. Burgers made how you want them while you wait. Juicy and wonderful. Staff was friendly and got the order just right. Be sure to pick up extra napkins--you'll need them.
