Had lunch today. Good food and we all enjoyed our meals. A little expensive for burgers and dogs but worth it.

Best thing about Jakes is real meat fresh not frozen customized to how you like it. Throw in the best onion rings in town and you will be more than satisfied. Its a little pricey but with coupons available and 1/2 price burger night, you will find your self going back again and again!

Great hamburgers. . . . have always had a good hamburger when we go. A little pricy, not someplace you want to bring your family of 7. But for a couple on date, or just a quick meal - very good meal.

I love this place. Reminds me of my teenage years. Burgers, chili dogs, great fries and a malt--who could ask for more? Family/kid friendly and they give veterans a discount too.

The wife and I go their on Tuesday nights because the burgers are half price. You can't cook at home for $ 2.99. The burgers are always good and the fries are decent. It beats going next door to McDonalds. I have had their milkshakes in the past and their very good as well. This is not a 5 star... More

Not much to say. The burgers are always good. Fish is really decent for the price. Nothing fancy but generous portion for not much money.

The service is quick, the food is good, and the memories...they're up to you. NEWS FLASH: Attention Vets-Jakes gives us a discount-just bring your veteran ID or military ID.

I like this Jakes as a stop for food on my way up and down Highway 1 on the way to/from the Delaware beaches. Service was a tad slower this visit, as they seemed to be training someone new. Food was served up hot and tasty. Burgers are good and juicy. They are a tad on the small size. Fries... More

This is up-scaled fast food, similar to Five Guys and others. Terrific cooked to order burgers, fries, chips, shakes, etc. Interesting combos of ingredients in the specials. First rate, fresh and friendly, but there is nothing special about the dinning facilitues. A bit hard to find in a strip mall -
