This restaurant has consistently good food, great service and delicious homemade deserts. Even though they're typically very busy, they get you in fast and food is never delayed. Great decor and friendly staff.

After visiting the Silos we were looking for a bite to eat. This place hit the spot. Even at 2 on a Thursday afternoon there was a 20 minute wait. But we were glad we waited. The fun decor gave it a relaxed atmosphere with lots to look at while we waited. The burgers were very good as well as... More

Stopped here after visiting the Silos. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was so fun! Plus, my son won a free lunch by having a Mustang hub cap for a dish!

The bread pudding has a wonderful hot buttered rum sauce and I get it every time. The 50's decor is fun and the place is really clean. Take the time for lunch at Jake's. You will find it... More

So a group of us headed down to Waco to celebrate a friend's birthday -- you know, the silos, lunch, antiques. We went to Chip and JoAnna's place first -- a complete total madhouse! SO many people. We had originally thought about eating there, but gosh, it was so crowded we just needed to remove ourselves (after shopping, of course!)... More

Fun setting, very fast and friendly service. We went in about 45 minutes before their listed closing time, and were done (without being rushed) with time to spare.

We really enjoyed eating at this restaurant during our recent anniversary trip to Waco. The 50s charm is great and the food is also great. This would be a great trip for anyone who likes old cars and car memorabilia. You even get to eat your food in an old hubcap! We also loved the easy-going waitress. She joked along... More

We met our dear friends at Jake's for lunch. Great atmosphere, great service and wonderful meal. A good day for us all. And, of course, there is pie!
