I like the Jack's on HWY 17 N and on Folly Rd...I'd give them four stars. The blue cheese slaw is awesome, and I like the retro diner atmosphere. I've been to the new location three or four times, and my experiences haven't been as good as at the other locations. Perhaps they are still ironing out the kinks after opening. The hot dogs have been cool (in temperature) and the buns have been soggy. I know that things like slaw and kraut are wet and seep into the bun, but draining some of the liquid off would be helpful. The fries have been inconsistent in quality and quantity. I'm hopeful that the restaurant will get better with age.
Ok maybe I should elaborate....... If you dont close till 8pm and people show up at 1/4till I dont think it's unreasonable to expect to get a hot dog not just be told all we have left is ice cream. Furthernore in a place where a large percentage doesnt pull the typical 9 - 5 I would think that closing at 8pm is kinda stupid (yes its there right) but its stupid..... who does that? How many places in Charleston that are open for dinner close at 8? Either way your losing a good percentage of customers. On a side note though the Cosmic dog is kick ass! and so are the hand cut fries!
ok - so they have good dogs. and good fries. but they are ridiculously priced. my family of 4 is closer to $30 than $20...love the atmosphere, but this is not a regular haunt for us - mainly because of the prices. plus, i would love love love for restaurants to get some healthy alternatives to fries... mandarin oranges,anyone? apple slices? seriously, if Mcdonalds ands BK can figure that much out, shouldn't local eateries be able to?
Great hot dogs and breakfast sandwiches. Parking nightmare
