First, the ""Smoking: Outside Only"" designation in the restaurant info box for this establishment is INCORRECT. Jake's Joint is first and foremost a suffocatingly cigarette smoke-filled bar. The place consists of one small dining room, an outdoor covered patio with a pool table, and an open-air patio in front bordering Parker Rd. The indoor dining room is small (maybe 25' x 50') and contains tables and a bar. Half of the tables are smoking, the other half 'non-smoking.' Patrons may also smoke at the bar. Translation: ALL smoking. And the night we visited, pretty much everyone on the smoking side and at the bar were smoking. We had to sit outside on a 50 something degree night just to avoid the smoke. Inside the building is a game room in which no one under 21 is allowed as the room reportedly houses faux gambling machines (what we were told, but didn't look). So the 'not for children' designation is accurate.
Pros: Very Good Hamburgers, Relatively Inexpensive
Cons: Insufferable Cigarette Smoke, Not Appropriate for Families
