Jake's Sandwich Board
Posted by Randall on 04/17/2014
Jake's call itself an homage to the Philly sandwich scene, and it is a honorable one at that. First off, they offer brisket which you will not find at most places (Dinic's and Percy St. BBQ are others, and maybe Rex 1516). Just to offer it is an accomplishment, but there's just happens to be darn tasty. Besides that, they have many other sandwiches mostly organized by base meat - pork (including house-smoked bacon), steak, chicken, and even veal, turkey, and veggie options. They don't just have the base and some random toppings - their concoctions are well thought out and have interesting toppings you won't find anywhere else. If their concepts don't interest you, you can build your own. Unlike way too many businesses, they don't skimp on the serving size (see wall of eating contest nostalgia when you visit).

Went there late afternoon during week.my brisket sandwich was sad looking and the meat was dry as if the bottom line was to give you as least as possible and some cold bread. Compared to some real sandwichjoints like katzes deli or carnegie deli this place was a joke!!really save your money and go a couple of blocks over to the market and get a real sandwich

You got to try this place. I went with 3 others from work for an early dinner. We were trying to decide on the sanwhiches when the young lady behind the counter suggested we each pick a sandwhich and they would cut each one into 4's. That was brilliant we each were able to each have a peice of the other sandwhiches while still eating only one sandwhich. We are going back for lunch but we will hold off on the fries. The fries though good were un necessary since one sandwhich was more than enough to fill you. Matter of fact we had half a sandwhich left when we were done. (We were stuffed!)

The 50/50 sandwich is DELICIOUS, as is the roast pork, the Mensch, the Turbacon, and the Fire Steak. Their fries are quite tasty, as are their milkshakes. Service is always fast and usually friendly but once in a while they seem a little surly. Also, sometimes it's a little hot & stuffy in there. Whatever; I don't care. These sandwiches are that good (not to mention huge!). In fact, now that I think about it, I may stop by & pick one up for dinner tonight & save half for tomorrow. Yes, folks, they're that tasty.

Great sandwich. I had the mensch. The brisket with the combo of the sauces and onions was unbelievable.

mediocre sandwich with subpar rolls. Hard to believe that in Philadelphia they couldn't have found a good italian roll

it was ok nothing overly impressive. the should just call the rib-eye sandwich a cheesesteak, because thats all it is. and its frozen meat, like a food cart..
