“So Glad Jake's is Back--Thanks Pat”
Reviewed 1 May 2013

We were so happy to see Pat Marchan and learn that he has reopened Jake's. We've been a fan of White Sands for years and know that he will make Jake's a "go-to" place on SPI. You can already see the improvements. The building is opened up, light, clean and fresh. The wait staff was efficient and attentive. We both had mexican plates and enjoyed them. The waitress asked for our feedback and urged us to be honest. We liked that she cared enough to ask and to really want to hear our suggestions. We know there is a fine line in what customers want in terms of spice, but we thought a little more spice would do the trick and add additional flavor. She encouraged us to come back and see how they do and we will. We will look forward to our next visit.
