As the restaurant business constantly strives to find the next trend, Jake's Wayback Burgers is happy to take its time paying homage to a bygone era. Jake's started as a simple burger joint in 1991 and now boasts locations across the country. But despite this growth, they still stick to their time-tested recipe of fresh, homemade food made with real ingredients and a welcoming atmosphere.
Each Jake's sports retro decor with red barnyard walls and stainless steel accents which evoke a distinct fifties vibe. This reverence for the past is less a gimmick than an appropriate complement to the wholesome menu which eschews the current burger standard of frozen hockey disc patties and focuses on handmade burgers. To compliment the burgers, Jake's also offers housemade potato chips, hand-dipped milkshakes in flavors such as chocolate banana or orange cream, as well as all-beef hot dogs covered in homestyle chili or grilled onions.
