“Delicious Breakfast”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Even thought it was Father's Day and the restaurant packed with people; the service was great, food wonderful and the price reasonable. So glad our hotel clerk told us about the place!

“i'll be waiting for their doors to open...open...open....”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

we have a jack's about to open in san mateo, so i suggested to our group that we go to the jack's in san bruno!

i'm very glad i did and my group of friends agreed. it was the first time visit for four out of five of us. and, except for the excessive noise level, it was a most pleasant experience.

2 had the fish and chips. i tasted hubby's fish/chips and it was very good. i'm not always a fish/chips fan cause of the deep fry batter, but these fish pieces (loin cod) had very delicate breading, if you can even call it 'breading.' the accompanying cole slaw was good, a bit different, but good. ditto with the fries. the friend who had also ordered the fish/chips, loved it, just about licked her plate.

my pasta pomodoro was scrumptious. light, delicious, perfect.

the friend who ordered the fried chicken was more than a bit happy over her selection. and the friend who ordered the blackened catfish was happy with her selection.

our server was "G$" - he was awesome. friendly, answered questions, didn't rush us, was totally cool. hope he'll be moving to the san bruno location!!

the menu was quite varied - sure to please everyone. prices were a bit high, i thought. i was glad that my pasta was about the 'cheapest' item on the menu at $8.95. the fish and chips were $14.95...kinda high, i thought.

we met for dinner at 6pm, and the volume of noise from conversation of people trying to talk over the noise was deafening.

i would go either super early for dinner, or try it at lunch time.

can't wait for jack's to open in san mateo!

“fantastic lunch stop”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

we were visiting area and several persons mentioned Jacks as a place near-by to go to. 3 of us stopped for lunch. wow! best gyro i've ever had. not only the tzikti sauce was great, but the meat was well spiced and generous, but the vegetables on the gyro had been marinated and really kicked up the whole sandwich, oh yeah the pita bread had been toasted lightly before serving. the sandwich was huge, had to eat about 1/2 of it with knife & fork before i could get the pita into my mouth. served with garlic / oregano fries. AWESOME if you are a fry person. companions both got salads and raved about them, really fresh ingredients and very large portions. atmosphere was like a diner, but decor in an out much nicer. good selection of items to choose from, lots of comfort food. service was ok, but not great, we seemed to get passed from one waitress to another waiter mid-stream, but it worked out. prices were very reasonalble, everyone talks about the great breakfasts there, i wish Jacks would open in Pennsylvania, i'd be a regular there.

“worse service”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Went there when it was new and was completely ignored, even though there were only very few people in the restaurant. The bartender was talking to a friend and we couldn't get service. He was "too" busy. We were told that the manager was in the table across and he could have cared less. Will never go back.
