We visit the area at least once/year and since discovering Grande Jake's, it had been on our must visit list each time we're nearby. The food had always been delicious, love the salsa bar and the prices are reasonable. We visited again in October 2018...More

The Continental has all the usual favorites for breakfast and then quite a few teasers that are their creations. I always make sure I have pancakes. Continentals are light and fluffy and the perfect sweet ending to your breakfast. Friendly staff!

My experience with Grande Jakes was horrible. The other reviews I read seem to be positive, but my carryout order was quite the opposite. I ordered the Cowboy combo which was over $13. One cheese chili relleno, 1/2 carne asada, and one cheese enchilada. The...More
