A great place for hamburgers and hotdogs. We love going and sitting outside while we eat. Thanks is a walk up and order then eat in your car or outside on tables that are covered from the weather.

The cheeseburgers and hot dogs are famous for being perfect--just like home (only you don't have to do the work!). When I want to switch it up--I get the chuck wagon. Add a milkshake or fries and it's a perfect quick meal. The fried chicken...More

Living in Atlanta for 30+ years, a trip back home is NOT complete, unless I've been by "Jack's"! Family and friends living out of town also post on social media when they're home and what they're ordering...LOL

I have been enjoying Jacks for years. The staff is very nice and the food is excellent. Be sure to have cash with you because they don't take cards. Be sure to enjoy some ice cream for desert.

Just ate at Jack's a few hours ago. All of their food is very good - I had a hamburger and onion rings today - but their fried chicken is awesome and inexpensive. Love eating outside at the picnic tables.

Best place around for Hot Dogs and Hamburgers. This is not an indoor eating facility but picnic tables are located outside the diner for your convenience. Also, you will need to bring cash because they don't accept checks or debit/credit cards.

If you want a great hotdog fully dressed or a hamburger with all the fixings, then this is the place you want to be. You have one visit and you will return for many more.

Great old-fashioned fast food with outdoor ambience. A staple of area. I had not been for months but sad to say it has fallen badly. Service has become horribly slow plus wait staff all look like they would rather be elsewhere. Hamburger has shrunk and...More
