Very basic burger place -- very simple seating and no atmosphere. Food was ok - was made to order - so took a little time - even though we were only ones in the place. It is what it is.

The burgers are OK at best and very pricey. There are always different people working there and none of them seem to be able to get an order right. Getting my order wrong again was the last straw...I will not be returning.

Absolutely a good burger. Nice combo all around. Meat, toppings and bun. Proper amount of grease! And the fries and shakes were also good. I think they beat any typical fast food place. Not as good as a 'Five Guys' (IMO)

Two guys working the joint. It was not particularly busy, but they could not keep up. Shake was made with vanilla ice cream and flavored with pumps of syrup- not great. Burger was pink inside, but dry, dry, dry. I did nothing t finish it. Too much money for not a lot of anything good.

The nearby HGI had recommended this burger joint and found it to be great. Ordered the patty melt with the onion ring combo and discovered I made a great choice. Ordered the strawberry banana to go for desert. Received a discount just for mentioning that I'm staying at the nearby HGI! Damon my waiter provided great service!

Do I want to live to be 100? Not necessarily! I just want to be happy, and Jake's Wayback special hotdogs make me very, very happy! They are simply delicious, and I'd love to eat them often, but I do have a little good sense. However, among my 10 top listed goodies, they are high! We live close by, and... More

Okay - I really like Jake's Wayback burgers. Consistent quality - have eaten them in three states. Was here at this location after a Longwood Gardens visit. Most difficult thing is getting to their parking lot - you can't enter off Route 1. It's right next to Applebee's and the Hilton. You almost park in the Hilton's lot for Jake's.... More

My kids really enjoy the place, mostly because it is popular and the food is ok. Have been a couple of times. Recently took my 2 children and a friend for dinner. All had very small shakes and kids meals that were less than ample and not especially fresh. I was shocked at a $40 bill for 1 adult and... More
