I love that everything is made to order and you can customize your burger however you like it. Food is always fresh, hot and tasty. So much better than fast food.

They serve fresh ground chop meat which makes the best hamburgers. The toppings are fresh and tasty and their sauces delicious.The french fries were fresh and tasty and service quick and friendly

We had 2 classics and 2 Wayback hot dogs plus fries and drinks. Their fries are delicious as were all the other foods we got.

We loved this cute place like diners of the 50's! They have shakes, burgers, hot dogs and salads. Clean and quiet. I had chili cheese coney and a mint Oreo shake! Perfect!

The burgers are good but not the best. Better than other fast food places I won't mention but doesn't take much to find a better burger.

Not bad burgers. Nothing over the top. Defiantly much better then any fast food restaurant and milkshakes are good but they are expensive. I prefer Shake Shake but jakes is defiantly the best option in this area.

We do like the food! The staff is super friendly and the service is prompt and courteous. for a family of 5 we can't eat here for less than about $75 when everyone gets what they want. So we don't go here often

My daughter, her friend & I went to Jake's after shopping. We all had their large shakes & loved them. The staff was flexible & funny because I created my own flavored shake by combining 2 they have & it worked. The teens loved their shakes & we waddled out happily.

By chance we were just driving around and the sign absolutely grabbed us...hey, cool name...let's go in and see what's "Wayback" about it! Well...after ordering and devouring an Octoberfest burger (fresh meat/ sauerkraut/muenster cheese/onions) and a super chocolate malt served in the ol' time tin mixing can. Yes, this is not fast food...just great food! Will certainly only go to... More
