Me and my little families have frequented Just Jakes for a number of years. They add new menu items from time to time and are often spot on with their choices. There is a large variety of starters, the lunch menu has a lot of choices and if you make it to dessert loosen your belt. The desserts are incredible... More

It is a homey little restaurant with good service and the best homemade soup served in a large bowl with garlic bread for $5. Various artist's works are featured on the walls. Some are available for sale. Sit in the window seat and watch the world go by.

Found it to be a bit pricey. If it's after work and you are looking for a drink with something light, your paying a full meal price. Should offer happy hour.

A great casual / informal restaurant in downtown Duncan. Basic but inviting decor. Surprisingly extensive menu. Busy on a Sunday evening. Friendly service. Good selection of draft beers. Recommended for an inexpensive no-nonsense tasty meal. We will come again

Came in for dinner. Pretty quiet. Ordered a beer and burger. Both very good. The crispy chicken burger was cooked perfectly with just the right crunch and very moist. The accompanying salad was also great with lots of variety including beets. The blue cheese dressing had chunks of blue cheese and was very good also. Service was just right and... More
