Re:Jakes Wayback Burgers
I wrote about Jake's on here a few years ago when they only had several locations in northern Delaware and hadn't added the "Wayback" to their name. I love the older Jakes locations that I've tried in northern Delaware to the point where I'd put them up there with any fast food style burger that I've had (especially the original location). But the one newer Jake's Wayback Burgers that I tried, in the PA suburbs a little north of Philadelphia, was nowhere near as good as the older Jakes I've been to. The burger was lacking in the strong beef flavor that made me such a big fan of Jakes. It was pretty bland in fact.They also didn't serve my shake in the metal cup it's made in, as they do at the older Jakes. It was still a good shake, but there is something nice about getting it in that metal cup.
I'm not prepared to write off all of the newer Jakes outside of Delaware based on that one experience, but I'm wondering if they'll have consistency problems as they move further and further away from northern Delaware.
