It's all about the burgers!

Something about Jackson's draws me at the oddest times of day. So far, I have only eaten at a normal mealtime once. Every other time it's 2 or 3 o'clock in the afternoon. The appeal of burgers and the triumph of enjoying a good beer in the middle of the day is too strong to deny. The don't have a huge selection on tap, but they do have a few local brews from Bold City Brewery.

The burgers; how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I have to say that I don't think I have ever had such a scrumptious sculpture of grilled beef anywhere else. Ever. In truth, every item on their menu is delicious. The staff is very attentive and make you feel like the only person in the room.

Just a few gripes: Unfortunately, their hours aren't so great. They close way too early for my taste. Also the music is horrible - like the soundtrack to a 80s B-movie. Really, REALLY bad. But if my taste buds are relishing a cheeseburger on pretzel bread with fries, who cares what my ears think, right?

Our last visit we did opt out of the norm (burgers) and added a little variety to our diet.
The Chicken Avocado Sandwich with Fries

The Portobello Mushroom Burger and House Salad with Bleu Cheese Dressing

  1. What a great, fun, review! I totally agree with you about the burgers, the music, and the hours. Imagine if this place stayed open till 2am! But us nightowls usually end up at Kickbacks, which is also wonderful but has pretty slow service on busy nights.

  2. Thanks for the comment, Frederick! Oh man... Jackson's burgers at 2am... I'm drooling at the thought of it. Would it be worth the indigestion? I think so.
