One of the first signs of spring! – I'll admit some of my family would rather sit in an expensive restaurant, or at least a place with a good wine list, but Jacks is one of my favorite places. They serve the best hotdogs I have ever tasted. They have the right color, the right flavor, and the right taste. I grew up in the area and even as a picky skinny child, would always eat food from Jacks. The place does smell, on a hot day you can smell the onions from Hannaford. That is the only negative thing I could say about the place. As soon as the place opens in the spring it is packed. How could so many people be wrong? Don't let anyone fool you into thinking this is a place one should never try. Sure, don't drive an hour just to eat hotdogs on a bench. That is crazy because this is fast food, but do stop in to eat if it's on your way. It's a cheap quick meal.
Snobs need not apply – Snobs will never eat at Jack's. People who love sliders, and all that means, LOVE Jack's. My daughter went to Emma Willard, (uppercrust girls' preparatory), and introduced many, many of her upperclass friends to Jack's and they loved it so much it became their "must" destination during the summer.
Of course the burgers are greasy, of course the fries are loaded with cheese. THAT'S WHAT A SLIDER PIT IS! The food is delicious, the help is friendly, and anyone who says they aren't must be anti-social himself.
Try it. You'll LOVE it.
All Time Classic – Jack's is an all time classic place to eat. You aren't going to find anything fancy here, it's just burgers, dogs, fries, shakes, onion rings, sodas, etc. The service is fast and it's the kind of greasy burger joint that brings back memories of yesterday. Also, when the weather is nice it's great to just sit out on the benches and take in the summer air. Yes, the burgers are standards sliders with grilled onions, ketchup, and cheese on them so if you expect some kind of gourmet burger then go to Red Robin or something. Me? I'll take a quick cruise on the Harley to Jack's anytime!
A real Troy area fixture – We love Jack's. My mother used to take me there on hot Summer nights. There were car hops then. Summer starts when Jack's opens. I love the burgers, chocolate milk and fries.
Editorial Review by Emily Zietlow – Fast food joint serves up greasy burgers with ketchup, mustard and onions, cheese fries and thick shakes.
The point is....... – The burgers are SUPPOSED to be greasy and loaded with onions and ketchup! That is why they are called "sliders!" This is NOT a gourmet hamburger joint---It is a throwback--and a wonderful one at that....My folls used to take me here when they had car hops....The food is slimy and delicious and worth the trip! The cheese fries are awesome and the shakes are the BOMB....
THE BEST!! – i've been going here since i was a kid, and it continues to live up to its reputation. they have the best hamburgers, and cheese fries i have ever had. even the hotdogs are great. every year, i look forward to the spring when jack's opens for the summer. i am there the day it opens and very often thereafter.
Over Rated, Waste of time and money – I seen this survey before, so I decided to check the place out. What a disappointment. Their burgers are small, greasy and expensive for what you get. They are nothing above an average burger patty off your own home grill, except you pay a lot more. Not recommanded, and customer service was poor, as if you were their bothering them because they had to work.
User review by 1witch – WE COUNT DOWN THE DAYS THE JACK'S REOPEN EVERY YEAR
The Best Dam Burger!!!!!! – Let me start by saying it is the best lunch iv had in years. The burgers are so good and they have the best cheese fries and chocolate shakes I've ever had. The Manager Dave Hardey is the nicest guy I've come along in years those Deebs are doing something right. Can't wait to get there again. every time I'm there its like I'm on vacation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
