When I first pulled up to Jackís Old Fashion Hamburger House and I saw the simple brown and yellow sign and unimpressive exterior, I wondered how this place has been a fixture in Ft. Lauderdale for 40 years. But when I walked through the door, I see why. Itís like walking through a time warp. You realize from the 70ís era brown laminated booths to the juke box playing oldies that this place is serious about ďold fashionedĒ. There arenít bison burgers or veggie burgers or Kobe beef sliders, itís basically what size burger and do you want cheese on it. The fries are not Cajun seasoned, they are not tossed in olive oil and rosemary, and they are straight forward thick cut French fries. They are straight from a day when no one conceived of anything different. I placed my order, paid the very reasonable price, and began sipping out of my plain, Styrofoam cup until they called out my number. In no time I found myself at a booth staring down at a large, simple but admittedly ďold fashionedĒ burger in a timeless plastic basket. I think the Beatles were singing from the juke box in the background when I took the first bites of my burger. There were no toppings on it; I added some mustard and ketchup myself. How can I describe the experience other than thisÖ there are times in life when you just want a good burger. Jackís delivers. I think the Beach Boys were singing when I started into my vanilla milkshake. Part of me wanted to go back into the kitchen and see if someoneís grandma just made this from scratch. Iím sure it wasnít but it tasted so good. Was it fancy? Of course not! It was simple. It was vintage. It was old fashioned. Thatís Jacks. Thereís a time and a place for a place that takes you to a different time. I love this restaurant. I will definitely be back. And I will definitely bring friends.

We came in to Jackís Old Fashion Hamburger House, we ate and we left. The cheeseburger came with the fixings sealed in a Ziploc bag atop the bun. I was perplexed at first but after consideration, I believe that technique blends with the atmosphere. Itís an antiquated and old-fashioned restaurant with a small staff. The menu is quite simple and to the point, that is refreshing. The patrons seemed to be faithful longstanding guests from the grand opening way back when; this can mean that the food delivers the same quality each time. Who can argue with principles like that? We enjoyed fries with our burgers, there was no seasoning or salt added. Although I may not return, it isnít because the food isnít edible. It is simply a lack of comfort and modernized appeal to a foodie like me. I prefer a menu with fancy additions that arenít easily replicated at home. Jackís is simple and classic in its own right.

Once we entered the restaurant, it was fairly busy, the parking lot was relatively full, and there wasnít a sign or anything, just walked up to the registers and ordered, then with your receipt you got a number for your order. Both my husband and I ordered the original cheeseburger, I got grilled onions on mine and he got grilled onions, lettuce, tomato, and bacon. We also ordered a side of regular fries and chili cheese fries. We got our food in about 10 minutes, then we went to the condiment bar; I went a little crazy and put pickles, mustard relish, and fresh onions on mine. We sat down at the booth and enjoyed our burgers. The fries were bland and tasteless which was very disappointing. The bun the burgers had was just a regular bun and almost disappeared with the burger and toppings. I was disappointed that they didnít give as much care and attention to their fries and buns, it wouldíve made the whole meal that much better. The chili on the chili cheese fries was alright too, I didnít feel like it really offered much in terms of flavor. After we finished eating I decided to get a chocolate milkshake and that was very good. A classic blended milkshake with chocolate syrup, I was pleased and ate more of that than I intended to. Itís a clean up after yourself place and we did that before eating. The people were always coming and going and the business was fairly steady the whole time we were there. Itís clearly an institution; the people there loved it, there were families, workers, grandparents, friends, everyone. It was a bit of a drive for an average meal, but Iím sure if I lived closer I would grab a takeout burger when I was craving a homemade patty.
