Quick-service restaurants are a dime a dozen. But there is one that is going the extra distance to stand out from the crowd—Jack’s. Birmingham based and Alabama proud, here’s what makes Jack’s stand above the rest.
Over 50 Years of Service
Jack’s first opened its doors in Homewood in 1960— almost 60 years ago! Known for fresh, made-from-scratch menu with Southern flavor, the restaurant has continued to grow and produce quality food for its guests. Currently, Jack’s has 162 locations and opening about 15 new stores a year in Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia and Tennessee. This makes Jack’s the largest quick-service restaurant headquartered in the state. Wow!
Haven’t been to Jack’s in awhile? They’ll welcome you back with a big southern smile at all of their locations.
On Tuesday, February 26, Jack’s hosted a special Foodie Night where Birmingham food lovers tasted some of their new menu items. Here’s what they had to say:
“The bacon jam is my jam.”
Russell Hooks, Happenin’s in the ‘Ham
“Very good quality of catfish. I was pleasantly surprised. The cornbread crust definitely sets it apart from other catfish from fast food.”
Mandy Williams, Foodies of Birmingham
“My favorite is our Kick’d Up Patty Melt. It’s my favorite because we make our Kick’d Up Sauce in house.”
Clifton Rutledge, COO, Jack’s
“The hand-scooped Lemonade Shake is like Chick-fil-A’s Frosted Lemonade but better because it’s made with Mayfield Ice Cream and it’ll be available on Sundays.”
Matt Mitchell, It’s a Southern Thing
