In addition to fueling your body with carbohydrates, hamburger buns keep your hands grease-free and cushion your fall when after-dinner drowsiness slams you to the ground. Stay awake long enough to finish your fries with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of burgers, appetizers, and more from Jake's Burgers. This Groupon is valid at the sandwich shack's six locations in Dallas, Fort Worth, and Plano.
Jake's award winning menus showcase an American classic the way it should be—sandwiched between buns and smothered with fixings. Cut to the beefy chase with an order of french fries ($1.79) or Jumpin' Jake fries (battered and seasoned, $1.99), followed immediately by a meaty mouthful of Jake's Special, a 20-year burger favorite with double meat, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and Thousand–Island dressing ($5.99). Or, deliberate a while and try the Texas–Chili burger (double meat with chili, cheese, onions, and Jake's hickory sauce ($6.59), or the Flaming Rooster, a grilled-chicken sandwich with hot mustard, Monterey jack, and fresh pico de gallo ($5.99). Vegans and vegetarians need not fret, as the veggie burger crushes any misplaced cravings with a meat-free fist of spicy black beans and choice of toppings ($6.29). Make Norman Rockwell proud with a chocolate malt for dessert ($3.75). Prices vary from location to location, so there might be some small variation from what is listed above.
Jake's Burgers has grabbed a great deal of press and took home the prize for Dining Guide's Best Burger 2010, the Dallas Observer's Best Use of a Tuber 2008, and the 50th Best Burger in Texas by Texas Monthly magazine. The Dallas location appears on multiple top-five Best of Citysearch lists: Best Hamburger 2006, Best Fast Food 2007, and Best Cheap Eats 2006, 2007, and 2008. Yelpers give it three stars, Google Mappers give it 3.6, and 67% of Urbanspooners recommend it.
- …plain old french fries will never hold quite the same appeal after you've experienced Jake's sweet potato fries. Dusted with a mixture of sugar, salt and cinnamon, they're a wonderful balance of sweet and salty, crispy and soft. – Dallas Observer
- The poppyseed bun... It about melted in my mouth, as did the rest of the burger, which contained two semi-thin patties and at least 2 slices of american cheese, onions, pickles, tomato, and mustard standard. – Robert B., Yelp
