Jake's is another family favorite in Morganton. Fresh, hot, quick, tasty beef, good fries, flavorful "real" shakes. All for a reasonable value -beyond fast food.

I ate here with my friends before seeing a movie. The cheeseburgers were delicious and are some of the best I have ever eaten. I love their fries also. Everything is very well priced.

I must say that the burgers here are some of my favorite in the area. People are nice and friendly. Parking can be a little bad during certain times,but it's worth it to go and try them out. The onion rings are pretty good also. Heck,grab a shake while you're at it. You deserve it.

The restaurant was decorated nicely and was clean. The food was good but average. I think youngsters would really enjoy it!

Good burger and fries. Service was slow and could barely here your name called. It was not very busy, just slow. I would eat another burger there. That alone says a lot because I know burgers.

Wow! We happened to be in the area hiking, and based on the other reviews, decided to give this place a try. We walked in to find all 20 tables in the dining area were dirty. The floor had trash and food all over it. This might have been understandable had they been busy, but only 2 of the tables... More
