This place is always on my places to visit list when I am in the Harrisburg area. By far the best sandwiches and cheesesteaks I have ever had. Highly recommend to anyone in the area.

Hamburgers are very good, old Italian sub also very good, prices are about $2 more than on the trip advisor menu. Most sandwich prices are $9-10.

My son is a huge fan of Jackson House, especially since he lives nearby. He has been raving about the Philly Cheese steak and the burgers. Typically, I don’t eat either. BUT I told my son I’d try them. These are two very large, ample...sandwiches. I could only eat a quarter of each. A day later he is working on the last quarter. We both eat small portions of food many times a day. The burger was incredibly thick and generous. We asked for medium rare and we got medium to well done, so that is really my only criticism. The buns for both sandwiches are golden brown and definitely a starring role in these sandwiches. The meat on the cheese steak was generous. We got pizza sauce on the cheese steak, which I had never tried, and it was really a nice addition. All the ingredients are fresh. An institution in the area and I can see why. I can’t see eating like this often but for a treat this is a go to place. The prices are really reasonable for what they serve you. They only take cash. So during the pandemic grab your mask and gloves and give it a try. Hopefully, this is temporary and will resolve soon then you can enjoy the entire atmosphere by eating in the family run restaurant.More

No wonder this place was voted best burgers in Harrisburg. 8 oz. of pure heaven. Once you pick one up don't put it down. It's definitely a 4 napkin sam'itch. I recommend the Manhattan. Swiss, Thousand Island, and coleslaw. I'm starting to slobber writing this...review. And the fries, foregetaboutit! Exactly like I order them anywhere else - well done/extra crispy. Now the place is small and normally very busy so you might want to order it for take away.More

The Jackson Burger without tomato and french fries were wonderful. The line to the counter to order was long, the room was crowded, and I chose to take out. Do not expect a relaxing experience, but it was worth it.

The Jackson House is the premiere hamburg restaurant in the area. Don’t expect cloth napkins—but the food is absolutely delicious. A must stop in your near the State Capital. It is a cash only establishment.

Loved this place. The burger was fantastic and the old Italian sandwich with the aged provolone was delicious. Fresh food cooked to order. Tomatoes vine ripened and juicy. Bring cash!

I travel a lot with family, kids sports events and work and usually search for the best burger or BBQ in that area. Lots of places say "award winning burger", "voted best burger" and other similar claims....after eating those other burgers I always say "not...as good as Jackson House". Jackson house is easily the best burger I ever had. Stop by Jackson House yesterday while working in the area and ordered the pizza burger and my co-worker ordered the "Bada Boom" sub (photos included).More

If you lover hamburgers, then this is the place to go. Absolute deliciousness between the top and bottom of a great bun. Pick your toppings or pick from their long list of burgers. Oh yea, do not forget to order a side of fries. Limited...hours, 10:30 to 2:00, Monday to Friday. Strongly suggest getting there before 11:30. Otherwise there is a line, sometimes stretching out the front door. Plan on trying one of their hoagies/subs next time. Go hungry or maybe with a friend to share.More

Bet it was the 6th street sandwich. Good choice.
