Just off its grand opening, the friendly staff at Jake’s Wayback Burgers wants to satisfy your taste buds on West Lancaster Avenue in Wayne.

The atmosphere at Jake’s Wayback Burgers is extremely welcoming and lively and the staff is friendly when they bring your order to your table. The place exceeds the expectations of any run of the mill burger joint.

“The demographics are excellent here,” Ewin Jansen, the owner of the restaurant, said. He chose this location because of the large amount of college students and the economic status of the community. Jake’s Wayback Burgers is an excellent pick for any college student because the prices are reasonable, no burger costs more than seven dollars. The menu is filled with American-comfort foods.

Jake’s Wayback Burgers welcomes college students, including Cabrini, by giving them a 10 percent discount card.

With a wide variety on the menu, even picky eaters won’t go hungry at this burger joint.  They offer different sizes of burgers, depending on how hungry you are, and they range from one to three patties topped with your favorite condiments.

Each month, they list a new “Burger of the Month” and “Shake of the Month” in order to switch up the menu.  This month’s burger is the chicken parmesan burger, and the shake is Almond Joy.

The toppings are endless. They are always fresh and the customer can choose from all sorts of condiments such as grilled onions, jalapenos, relish, sweet peppers, mushrooms and chili. All toppings cost 50 cents extra per topping. And don’t worry, they have bacon.

Jake’s Wayback Burgers also serves house-made potato chips, all-beef hot dogs, marinated chicken sandwiches, turkey burgers, specialty sandwiches and even fresh salads are available.

If you are a milkshake lover, Jake’s Wayback Burger is right for you. Jake’s has a multitude of  different flavors of shakes including strawberry banana, chocolate banana, orange cream, mint, chocolate mint and coffee.  With two different milkshake sizes, prices range from $2-$5.

The burgers are cooked to perfection, juicy and tender and smothered with fresh toppings.  Their buns are toasted and golden, the perfect bun for a great burger.

After taking a bite into my Big Jake (three patty) burger, I was completely satisfied and amazed of the freshness from the bun, to the toppings, to the perfectly cooked patties, to the other bun.

“We have the best burger under the bun,” Jansen said. “We challenge anyone else to be better than us.”
