YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y. – Jake’s Wayback Burgers is officially open for business in its Triangle Center storefront between A&P and Luvin' Spoonfuls in Yorktown Heights.
“We’re here rockin’ and rollin’,” co-owner David Pellon said. “Once we started pushing, over the last week-and-a-half, they got it done.”
The Delaware-based company began in 1991 with a single restaurant called Jake’s Hamburgers and has expanded to 60 locations throughout the nation, including a store in Hartsdale. Jake’s patties are 3.3 ounces each, and burgers can come with one, two or three patties.
“It's the best burger in town,” Pellon said. “We have homemade potato chips, french fries and all of the burgers are fresh — never frozen.”
Gillian Maffeo, the company’s director of marketing, said Jake's Wayback Burgers features a new Burger of the Month and new Shake of the Month each month. Sliders are the featured burger in October. Customers can choose two sliders for $3.99 or four sliders for $6.99. The sliders come with American cheese, pickles and ketchup, with a side of Jake’s Wayback Gold Dipping Sauce. The shake for October is a caramel apple milkshake.
“We have hand-blended milkshakes that are served in tin metal cups. We have a milkshake bar that you can sit at that has those round bar stools, and we have butcher-block tables, and steel chairs, so it’s kind of like the old-time theme,” Maffeo said. “It’s a very rustic sort of feel.”
Food can be preordered online at Jake’s Wayback Burgers’ website. Pickup hours are 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
