Jake's is another family favorite in Morganton. Fresh, hot, quick, tasty beef, good fries, flavorful "real" shakes. All for a reasonable value -beyond fast food.

I ate here with my friends before seeing a movie. The cheeseburgers were delicious and are some of the best I have ever eaten. I love their fries also. Everything is very well priced.

Wow! We happened to be in the area hiking, and based on the other reviews, decided to give this place a try. We walked in to find all 20 tables in the dining area were dirty. The floor had trash and food all over it....More
