“Not Fast Food”
Reviewed 7 April 2013

The burgers are fantastic, and don't leave you with a aftertaste all day like 5 Guys. You can watch the cooks make the patty from a block of fresh ground beef. The shakes are also great, they were among the best I have had. The only drawback was the wait. The burgers are made from scratch so it takes 5 or more minutes to get your burger. The staff was short one worker which meant the girl who took the orders also had to make the shakes. They use a 2 step process in making the shakes and this also takes about 5 minutes. I rated the service excellent because of the attitude and dedication of the staff.

“Go to 5 guys instead”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

Just tried Jakes for the first time and probably the last. Burgers are very greasy, topping amount leaves a lot to be desired, bun became very soggy very quickly. If the fries were hot they might have been OK but were cold and nothing special. Way to expensive for what you get. I'd drive out of my way for 5 Guys but not for a meal this disappointing.

“Good burger”
Reviewed 12 January 2013

Sort of fast food, but true, fresh made burgers. Beats Mickie D',s B King, Wendy's, etc. Whatever trimmings you want; grilled onions, etc.

“Quick Bites”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

Burgers good, waitstaff friendly and helpful. I never go to a restaurant without my husband or someone else, but I needed a quick bite and it filled the bill. Would go again.
