jacks old fashion hamburger house restaurant pompano beach florida fl

There's nothing complicated or fancy about Jack's Old Fashion Hamburger House restaurants in Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach Florida. The menu is as simple as it gets, there's a half pound burger, third pound burger and a quarter pound burger all served with or without cheese. The burgers are 100% lean beef with no additives or fillers and the beef is cut and ground fresh twice daily on the premises. Who grinds their own meat anymore? They claim that the beef is so lean that your finished patty costs you approximately 25% less than all of the hamburger chains.

If you're not in the mood for burgers, there's a grilled roast beef with peppers and onions, a grilled smoked ham with double cheese, a sliced turkey breast sandwich and a hot dog on the menu. You'll also find fries, chili, shakes and a root beer float. That's about it.

Jack's Old Fashion Burger HouseThe scene is fairly utilitarian with fake plants, old wood paneling and photos of Fort Lauderdale that are older than the restaurant. There's no drive-thru and no free refills. And all of this is probably the reason for the overwhelming success of these two restaurants. Keep it simple, focus on the quality of the food and service and sell truckloads of burgers.

The burgers are as tasty as you would expect and the fries are good as well. Overall, the quality is exceptional. You top your own burgers, so they end just the way you like them. The service is a little slower than chain fast food and the prices are a little higher, but you're getting what you pay for; freshly prepared food that wasn't trucked in frozen.

Don't plan on finding a parking spot at lunch. Last time we tried stopping in at noon we ended up parking on the lawn of the restaurant next door. All in all, Jack's Old Fashion Hamburger House is a great place for a burger and fries, and a true value.
