I have been coming here for over 30 years. Always good food, friendly service. The decor is 1960 Burger King. Never changed and that adds to the experience. Best Camel Rider in town.

This place is pretty cool for fast food. The burgers were a blast from the past when a cheeseburger was a cheeseburger. The fries were tasty. They have a sandwich called the Camel Rider and it was good. I could eat here every day

The Orange Park Sheik is right across from the hospital and was first recommended to us by a nurse there. Since, we've gotten sandwiches from it many times and they've been delicious. We've always had take out and alternate between the steak 'n sack and a tuna pocket. The pitas are incredible - fresh and light. I especially like that... More

I frequently take my two sons on short exploration trips - many times they have spotted the The Sheik and asked if we could go. Previously I had always suggested another place and bypassed the Sheik - on this day however, I happened to notice that the parking lot was full and steady steam of cars joining the already long...

First ate at The Sheik 30+ years ago, and the sandwiches and pitas are as good now as they ever were. Nothing fancy, just good diner-type fare. Breakfast, lunch, and supper items are available. Quick service, great food, great prices. Stop in and get any of the pitas or sandwiches offered, and see if you don't agree.

I have tried a few things at the Sheik and they were mediocre. The Steak in a Sack is outstanding, though -- one of the best steak sandwiches I have ever had. I hit their drive through once every few months and it is always good. The restaurant itself is a dive and looks the same as it did 25... More

I remember having Camel Riders at The Sheik when I was a teen growing up in Jacksonville. This was my first visit back to this particular restaurant in probably 35+ years. We had the opportunity (I finally remembered to stop here before we went somewhere else) to have a quick lunch from The Sheik during a short trip to visit... More

We just happened upon this place and we have already visited again. We were there for breakfast both times and got the same thing both times. Breakfast in a sack - one with bacon and one with sausage. Service was friendly and quick. Both were delicious.
