Plano's Best Burgers, Wait-Staff and Patio! 11/2/2010

The food is amazing even with the limited menu. The burgers and chicken sandwiches are huge and outstanding! And don't miss the sweet potato fries. Heck, even the grilled chicken salad is great! Great happy hour prices ($2 cosmos, giant $3 drafts) make it one the best deals around (and appetizers are only $3 during HH)! A great big (recently expanded) patio with palm trees and plants makes for a relaxing atmosphere to not remind you you're in the 'burbs! The wait-staff is very accommodating to special requests - trust me I bug them all the time with stuff. Not to mention cute - don't tell the wife ;-)! One last best kept secret - They have a corny dog (not on the menu - ask for it) that rivals ""you-know-who"" down at the State Fair! And half the price! Ask for the spicy mustard on the side and you won't be disappointed! And now they have a rewards program that saves you some money if you're a regular (I am)! more

Daytime atmosphere is peaceful 5/18/2008

Horror stories of the cigarette smoke don't appear to be true for daytime. A/C in main room, windows open on enclosed patio, plenty of shade on outdoor patio. Weekend lunch crowd consisted of families, the elderly, quiet locals. We expect the atmosphere there is quite different after dark. Food tasted fresh and was truly delicious. Portions are HUGE, so consider ordering on the ""light"" side and you'll still get plenty. Prices are extremely reasonable for even half of what they give you. Service was friendly and attentive. Only drawback is that the parking lot is very small and hard to manuveur -- bear that in mind if going with a group or during peak times. Pros: Food, prices, casual atmosphere Cons: Parking, possible smokey bar atmosphere at night more

Best burger in Dallas! 8/7/2007

I've been on the hunt for the best burger in Dallas, and Jake's wins hands down. Thin burger patties are sandwiched between a sesame bun and are more than filling. If you have room, order an Oreo Shake - another best of Dallas. I don't recommend the cheese fries. Pros: Burgers, shakes Cons: Fries more

Great food, better prices, best staff 11/28/2006

Jakes is great for exactly what you want when it comes to beer and burgers. Durring the day time it is a great burger joint. Food is great and the staff is quick and attentive. The after work crowd is perfect for winding down after a good hard day at work. Happy hour specials are great tasting and easy on the wallet. The evening crowd is better especially when the game is on. The food can't be beat. Drinks are some of the best in town made just the way you like them. Wait staff are the best around. They are quick, helpful, and SUPER HOT! There are plenty of flat screen tv's everywhere you look you can see the game. There is a Quality pool table and darts on request. If you are looking for the perfect place to eat and the best place to have a good time Check out JAKES. Pros: Great staff, Great atmosphere, Best food around more

Very Good Food, but CHOKING CIGARETTE SMOKE 11/18/2006

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 more

Awesome burgers and best happy hour in town 6/12/2006

Best burgers and drinks in town. Happy hour has been extended Mon - Fri. from 11am - 7pm which now includes all beers import or domestics for $2.00. They also have $3.00 frozen margarita's all the time. They have a great patio with beautiful palm trees surronding it. And there's no better place to go to watch sports. They have a huge big screen and a killer sound system. The staff is cheerful and the service is excellent. It's the perfect place to go for a quick burger on your luch break or to relax and have a few drinks after work. I highly recommend it Pros: good music, great atmosphere more
