A place you'll wish you could keep as your own little secret. Set far enough off High St. that you'd not see it unless you were looking, Jack's is serving up seriously great diner fare. Burgers are thin, but well dressed and satisfying, fries are cooked to order (not sitting around), and milkshakes have three ingredients (2 big scoops icecream, topping and milk - thick and delicious). If you're out with friends downtown at night, forget about it, though: we're talking breakfast-lunch down-town workers only. Their biggest booths fit four people (if you're small), they don't take plastic (or serve on it) and they're only open 'til 3:00 p.m. Mon.-Fri., so plan accordingly. If you want to sit at a diner counter for lunch, have a great burger, fries and milkshake on the cheap and feel like you've gone back in time, this is your place. Enthusiastically recommended.
