Sandwiches you can dig into.  Lots of meat. Perfectly cooked. Nice and juicy. Pork, rib eye, turkey and for the Thanksgiving period, turducken - turkey, duck and chicken with stuffing, cranberry sauce and topped with hash brown medallions.

Weekdays at lunch and dinner Jake's roasts a pig and hand carves it to order. Your choice of sauce and toppings

First time there I went for Barn Yard sandwich - pulled pork, ground veal, sweet peppers, spinach and sharp provolone. 

Next time, their sloppy dog. Two grilled hot dogs with sweet peppers, grated cheddar, mushrooms and topped with fries. I would have preferred a smaller roll, but once I got past the excess bread, a great flavor combination.

Other sandwiches shown - the steak and egg - a steak sandwich with American cheese and topped with a fried egg and the Schmeer - sliced turkey with spinach, provolone and roasted peppers.

Sides are good but don't match up to their sandwiches which are great.  The fries start off frozen and the onion rings had a heavy breading and were a bit too long in the fryer.

Jake's mixes things up with specials during the week - just making the decision tougher. This is the sort of sandwich menu I could easily work my way through.
