Diners, Drive Ins and Dives

After hearing about a most delicious concoction called a "Jake's Burger," PK and I decided to set out Guy Fieri style to check out a little diner called Jake's Place in Darien. Right off ex 10 in a small trailer style building, we could tell from first glance that this was going to be a home run.

The famous "Jake's Burger" is a small hamburger with cole slaw and Russian dressing inside a grilled cheese. I don't have a great word to describe it other than one of the best things I've ever eaten. The burger was cooked perfectly, melty cheese, crunchy coleslaw, tangy dressing and a big side of crispy krinkle fries with a pickle. And all this for under $7. We think even Guy would approve!

Jake's is open for breakfast and lunch, Mon-Sat. Eat at the counter or one of the small tables and enjoy service from their friendly staff. The perfect stop for a quick lunch if you're traveling along 95 or a place to enjoy a casual, authentic diner breakfast. We'll definitely be back!
