I think the confusion is the name. The one Q is speaking of is Jacks Old Fashioned Hamburger House and ours is just Jacks Old Fashioned Hamburgers.
Sassy, you need to get here where one of the original Jacks are. They DO make patties by hand here. Or did as of July 05. My son worked there lol.
Good to know, I thought it was the FF Jack’s and I know they don’t fix them by hand. Thanks for the info.
SGAl, I like your Jack’s jingle but I don’t think we’re talking about the same Jack’s. No way is (or was) the one in Ft Lauderdale part of a fast food chain. The one in FL has always been in this location and makes all their burgers by hand (either third or half lb) and is definitely not ff. [:I][:I]

We have a Jack’s here in Madison, AL. A lot of people like it, but I am not partial to them. I remember having a Jack’s here about 40 years ago as one of our first fast food joints. I still remember the slogan "Jack’s hamburgers for 15 cents are so good, good,good, you’ll go back, back, back to Jack’s, Jack’s, Jack,s for more, more, more.
Posted this previously under "the best burgers in the South" thread. Still think Jack’s is one of the best!
Jack’s Old Fashioned Hamburgers on US 1 (Federal Hwy) in Ft Lauderdale is hard to beat. Using an ancient Burger Chef site, they adhere to the In N Out philosophy of limited menu, hand formed burgers with meat ground fresh daily. The burgers come in one-third and one-half pound sizes and are prepared to order. They have other stuff, but the burgers are too scrumptious to pass up. Their fixings bar has fresh cut onion, pickles, jalapenos, and various condiments–with a mustard/mayo/relish sauce that is simply terrific! The place is always crowded, but they move ’em through quickly so you won’t have to wait long to get one of the best burgers in the South! [:p][:p][:p]

P.S. Go to HollyEats’ web site for pictures, address and tel # if you’re going to be near Ft Lauderdale.
I’m a native of south Florida. In my opinion, there is no better burger out there (and I’ve been around) than Jacks Old Fashion!
Their fries and shakes rank right up there too! One of the few restarants that have maintained quality and consistency through all the years they’ve been around. Here’s hoping it always stays that way![:D]
I was born in Fort Lauderdale in the ’60s and have always gone there. The Fort Lauderdale location is about 3 blocks from my house. They are both still there and still the best in my opinion. I’m actually going for take out there tonight.
I lived in Ft. Lauderdale in the early 90’s and Jacks had the best burgers. They cook to order and then they have the condiments for you to put on yourself. Visted there in 1998 after my honeymoon cruise.
Anyone know if they are still open or has anyone else ever eaten there. They have/had a location in Ft. Lauderdale and Pompano Beach.
