Jake’s Hamburgers

Jake’s Burger’s & Beer has closed one of its eight locations, but the original location continues to thrive.

The burger chain closed the Uptown location at McKinney Avenue on Aug. 14. Developers are converting the land where it once stood into a 19-story mixed-use tower, according to Dallas News.

This particular Jake’s lasted 18 years in Dallas. However, Jake’s noted there is another location in the works for McKinney Avenue planned, and an Addison location is also opening soon.

Jake’s has been a neighborhood staple and hangout for neighbors since it first opened in 1985 at Skillman and Abrams.

Jake’s continues to expand, even in our neighborhood, as we reported in July. A sports bar concept of the restaurant called Jake’s Gameday is slated for Skillman and Walnut Hill in the former Picasso’s Pizza spot.
