I visited the new Jake’s Wayback Burgers in Bel Air, MD for lunch with Mom and Dad.
I have been to the Jake’s in Elkton, but the Bel Air location is new. Elkton is closer to where I go to school, but Bel Air is closer to where I live. It’s all Maryland – it’s all good!
I ordered the Jake Burger which has 2 “hand pattied, never frozen” burger patties. I customized my burger with American cheese (other options include bacon, chili, and extra cheese) and my old favorites lettuce & tomato (other options include onions, pickles, jalapenos, etc.). A side order of French fries and a strawberry milkshake completed my order.
Mom had her burger with A1 sauce. That’s her thing. I was surprised that she did not have mushrooms on her burger. Maybe next time, Mom. (Hint! Hint! We need to go again!)
Dad had his burger (yeah… Mom let him have a burger… but it was a little kids Junior size burger!) with grilled onions and mustard. And he wonders why his breath smells? Ugh!
One of the BEST parts of the visit was the amount of swag that they gave me in the store. They had free bumper stickers, pens, key fobs, and lanyards. I got the whole lot! I could decorate my bedroom with Jake’s Wayback swag!
Jake’s makes a good burger. My burger was cooked to a nice medium-well without much pink. The fries were nice and crisp. The strawberry milkshake was… er… milky… and… um… shaky, I guess. (Hey! This is a burger review! If you want a milkshake review then you start your own blog, buddy!) I award this an 8 out of 10. The restaurant is in a good location and if you live in Harford County you should definitely go and visit.
