Jake's Uptown Restaurant Review

: Follow the lead of the regulars at this neighborhood burger stand and beer barn by ordering the Jake's special: a double meat, double cheeseburger doused with Thousand Island dressing and sided with tater tots. Another notable option that appeals to both the appetite and a thin wallet is the $3.99 regular hamburger---tasty and economical. The joint also cooks up a mean hot dog topped with chili and cheese, as well as the Flaming Rooster, a grilled chicken sandwich crowned with Monterey Jack and pico de gallo. Beer connoisseurs take note: Jake's also sells beer to-go, either by the bottle, six-pack or case.
