Me, and my family ate at Jake's Diner on Wendover in Greensboro, NC and we got very bad service last night. We waited 10 minutes before anyone took our drink order. We finally got our drinks, and then waited another 30 minutes, and one came to get our order. When we got and left, our waiter had the nerve to... More

Should've known when there's no wait on Saturday night but based on reviews we tried it. They got our drinks then took forever to take our order. Brought out half the food, soups were cold.

If you like to eat at diners, try Jake's. You can't beat the daily blue plate special for an inexpensive delicious meal. They have traditional diner food but also other healthier choices. For example, with my blue plate special,for veggies I chose grilled asparagus and a house salad. We liked it so much, we went back for breakfast the next... More

Jake's is located across the street from the Holiday Inn in Greensboro, NC. The restaurant has a steady flow of customers and I thought to give it a go after working. I took advantage of the drive thru and ordered breakfast to go. In less than 10 minutes, I had scrambled eggs, a short stack, hash browns, links, bacon &... More
