Definitely a "country" place. Small neighborhood hangout. It seems like it has a lot of regulars. Pros: Great food. I had the 8 oz burger and potato wedges. My wife had a 1/2 gyro and fried pickles. It all was great. Decent selection of bottled beer. Exceptionally friendly staff. Excellent service. Very clean. Cons: We had 1 burger w/ fries,... More

We got to Jacobs whenever we are in Knoxville. The food is always consist, fresh, and hot. Nothing is prepared but made when you order. The staff is very pleasant and makes sure you have refills or anything else you need. They have large selection to choose from and daily specials. Everyone should have no problem finding their favorite. We... More

Should have had the hamburger steak!! I had the Lasagna with a salad and garlic bread instead. The Lasagna was good but there was not much meat in the sauce!!! Salad was good, with 1000 Island dressing, but as you can see from the picture pretty plain I was comparing their prices to another one of my favorite places to... More

My husband saw this place out of the corner of his eye as we were traveling on the opposite side of Middlebrook Pike. It was a great find! I had the fried/breaded chicken breast sandwich with lettuce, mayo and Grainger County tomatoes (YUMMM). The bun that it was served on was fantastic - not a burger bun, but similar. My... More

Sign says restaurant. It's a deli. (stand up and order, they yell out your name when its ready, stand up to pay, etc) Be more careful looking at the prices than I was. Evidently they have a loyal local following, but almost $12 for lunch with water as your beverage is out of line for a place fully engaged in... More

The things that set apart these burgers are the buns (they ship these in from New York bakery) and the angus beef. Always a great burger that is cooked the way you want and served very quickly. Onion rings are great and the fries !

I like Jacobs but the burgers are frozen before they are cooked. Also I think it is too pricy. More than 10 bucks for burger fries and a drink. I'll head to 5 Guys in the future for fresh meat and more fries than I can eat for less.

Jacob, the owner, mans the grill. And it's a really good burger. The fries are a sin in a basket. Done to fried perfection. I always get the bigger burger but can never finish it. Tiny little place but awesome.

My husband works near this restaurant, and we carpool, so I drive by Jacob's every day. I was very curious, so we finally went there on a Friday night after work and before rehearsal. Perfect! It wasn't too crowded, and the 6 oz. Black Angus beef burger was the special. I subbed onion rings for fries; Dear Hubby got a... More
