The first burger was invented when an unsuspecting cow, holding a basket of fries, slipped on a ketchup-covered Kaiser roll and fell into the hands of a very large chicken. Improve on the past with today's deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of award-winning burgers, appetizers, and more from Jake's Burgers, at either the Main Street or Camp Bowie locations in Fort Worth. You must use your Groupon within 45 days of purchase.
Jake's menu showcases an American classic the way it should be—sandwiched between buns and smothered with fixings. Cut to the beefy face-crashing chase with an order of French fries ($1.59) or Jumpin' Jake fries (battered and seasoned, $1.79), 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, $6.29) 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; the veggie burger crushes any misplaced meat-cravings with a meat-free fist of spicy black beans and choice of toppings ($6.29). Make Norman Rockwell proud with a $2.95 chocolate malt for dessert.
Jake's has been winning awards for old-fashioned meatiness since 1985, so grab today's Groupon and head to Jake's to put the meat in i-meat-iate gratification and the burger in your face-cave. For a more American meal, you'd have to eat a whole kangaroo while peeling out on a crepe suzette in a 1972 Chevy Nova.

Jake's has grabbed a great deal of press, and took home the prize for Dining Guide's Best Burger 2009, 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 3.5, 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
- If you like hamburgers you have to like Jake's. Excellent food…nice set up with an upstairs. It is downtown Fort Worth so it gets busy, but the food will not let you down. – eriklarson33, Google Maps
