What it is: After our stop at the carousel, I remembered hearing that there was a new stop in the Northgate food court that opened last fall, so we headed on over. Jake's Wayback Burgers is your classic burger stop with food served hot when you order. They have burgers including regular burgers and cheeseburgers, garden burgers, and turkey burgers with your choice of toppings, hot dogs again with your choice of toppings, chicken, homemade potato chips, fries, and milkshakes. The kids' meal includes hot dogs, grilled cheese, burgers, chicken fingers, or a BLT.
While it did take a few minutes for our food to be made, it was nice and fresh. The fries were delicious and the burger was tasty, but I have to say that our favorite part was the fancy soda machine, the Coke Freestyle Machine. It has over 100 flavors, and you can select as many of them as you want and mix them together. It was pretty entertaining.
What we liked: Like I said, the fries and the soda machine were our favorite parts. It was also nice to have this fun burger option in the mall so we could enjoy it after a day of fun at Northgate Mall.
What we would change: We thought the potato chips weren't the best, and the few minute wait might make toddlers a bit antsy. However, the wait was worth it for the yummy burgers.
