Jake's has been around for a long time and there's good reason for it. Their BBQ menu is delicious and consistently good. Half-chicken lunch special and pulled pork sandwiches are always a favorite!

I had Kathy's tuna salad. It was really tasty with tuna salad, lettuce tomatoes, almond slices and avacado. Pretty big too if that matters to you. I wasn't a fan of the iced tea though.

Anyone particular about their bar b questions needs to try Jakes in downtown Monrovia! Throw your peanut shells on the floor! Enjoy an ice cold beverage! Ask for more of their decilious sauce....their service is as wonderful as their food. Dine in or take out, you will be very happy choosing Jakes.

Giant garden salad started this dinner. Peanuts on the table and also the floor for fun. But the chicken was incredible and the corn on cob garden fresh. With low prices this place is great.

This is a breakfast hot spot in downtown Monrovia. I've only been here once before. Very delicious, fast service, and the lemon raspberry pancakes are awesome.

I love this place since they opened up ages ago. When this place opened up the whole family helped run this place brother, sister, cousins and kids. It's still nice to know that some have grown up and moved on to other things, no matter what the food has been great since it all started.

Although I'm not a fan of their BBQ, Jake's, in my opinion, serves the best breakfast in town. It's surprising that a BBQ joint would serve up raspberry pancakes dusted with powder sugar and garnished with fresh raspberries, raspberry compound butter, and warm raspberry syrup. The dish is served with perfectly cooked thick cut Applewood smoked bacon, eggs cooked to... More
