The burger was okay but not that different from a sit down fast food resturant. Fun for a group family or adults

The Burger had a different flare to it. The bun was unique for a burger and it had relish on it. Those are the two take aways I got. All in all it was a pretty good meal. Just remember to eat your fries first. That's when they are the best.

The wait staff was friendly and personable. The restaurant was clean. The food was good, your average burger joint kind of food.

Too busy to provide good service or good food. They were slammed so I understand how things could be less than perfect.

We found ourselves downtown for Christmas in the park, and craved a burger. I have been to other JR's but liked this location. The staff were really nice, and food was darn good. I recommend the Bacon and Cheese fries. They were fun to share. Also the milkshakes are very good.

This is just a fun restaurant located in downtown San Jose. Service is quick and food is good. Great burgers, fries and shakes. Take a trip back to the 50s.

We were looking for lunch after visiting the tech museum and we came across this place (American style diner) Great value food. Burger was very nice and served with a brioche bun. Chips were crispy. It was child/baby friendly as well.
