Welcome to JAKE'S: Fresh Food, Not Fast Food
At JAKE'S, you won't find pre-made frozen food on the menu. Our Signature burgers are hand-pattied, cooked to order and never frozen. To finish off their meal, guests enjoy a variety of our famous hand-dipped milkshakes – a customer favorite. Additional menu items include hot dogs, a variety of sandwiches, chicken fingers, and fresh salads.
