Jake's Good Eats is just tailor-made for folks like me. If I didn't know better, I'd guess it was the work of some mastermind publicist.
My friends and I visited Jakes for Dinner. Actually, it was the second time. The first time we were too late. 8:45. On a Friday night. The restaurant says open until 9:00, but I guess they don't seat until 9:00; they CLOSE at 9:00. Noted.
The next time we tried, we were there by 7:00. The first thing we appreciated was the value of the lunch menu -- WOW. What great prices. And the items fit the rustic, brightly-lit decor. The cheeseburgers looked juicy and wonderful. The salads coming out of the kitchen looked great. The tables were all close enough together that we could see what other guests were eating, and it was easy to strike up conversation with strangers.
My friend ordered the spinach-artichoke dip with homemade pita chpis. The chips were deep-fried pita triangles. Very greasy, and the dip was so/so.
The dinner entrees were presented and priced on the menu like they belonged in a restaurant with more ambiance (and an ABC license). Main courses ranged to $18 at the high end. Yes, they looked good enough. But I wouldn't take a date there.
So, back to the lunch menu -- After surveying everything that came out of the kitchen for 30 minutes, we ALL ordered the BLT, and we ALL went home as stuffed as the sandwich was with bacon!
