Onion rings, Fries, and I ordered the burger rare. And that's how I get it, nice and rare. Didn't care too much for the bun, reminded me of a kaiser roll without the poppy seeds.

I enjoy Jakes Wayback. They have coupons out there so we always buy a Jakes Wayback and get one free if you purchase a drink a fries. There are lots of toppings to customize your burger and they also have good shakes!

Unless you're entering their contest, I do not think I would be spending the money on a single hamburger at this restaurant. It seemed that the burger was nice. But the decor like the service all seemed very standard. I have heard good things about...More
