Jack’s Old Fashion Hamburger House has been around since 1972 and is known for its Burgers that are “Cut and Ground Fresh Twice Daily” on the premises. Jack’s is a South Florida Landmark and one that must be experienced. There are 3 different sizes available to order a Jack Jr. ( 1/4 lb.), Original (1/3 lb.) and a Big Jack (1/2 lb.). While I don’t eat Lettuce, Tomato and Onions on my burgers I like how when you order them, they’re given to you in a little clear resealable sandwich bag.
The Burger had a beautiful crust on the outside which I love in conjunction with the ultra-processed Cheese they use. I really didn’t find the burger to be all that flavorful and it might have to do something with the fact that they use lean meat, not really a favorite of mine. But…..if you add Yellow Mustard it brings out the beef taste of the patty.
The fries were the standard stuff that taste great with some salt and drowned in ketchup.
Jack’s Chili Dog suffers from “OK” Hot Dog and good Chili syndrome. If you’re fine with that then this is the wiener for you.
A few years ago Jack’s Old Fashion Hamburger House was named one of “The Nation’s 15 Best Burgers”. Jack’s is an institution for some folks and a great part of South Florida Burger history so a visit here is a requirement for you Burger fans out there.
