If you’ve never been into the Army and Navy located at 36 West Cordova Street, then you’ve probably never heard of Jack’s Place – the lunch counter serving up hot and prepared food for a bargain price out of the discount department store.
Now, when we say bargain, we mean it – three full-sized grilled cheese sandwiches from this spot only cost us $5.26.
At that price, they are basically free.
Just like the Costco cafeteria or the Zellers Restaurant (RIP), Jack’s Place is a spot for Army and Navy shoppers to fill up on cheap and filling grub or a hot coffee or tea.
Inconspicuous and very exciting for those who enjoy getting a deal, other offerings from Jack’s include:
- Sandwiches, $2.75
- Soup, $2.25
- Potato Salad, $2.25
- Small Hotdog, $1.50
- Canned Pop, $1.25
- Coffee/Tea, $1.25 (plus $0.50 refills)
- French Vanilla, Irish Cream, or Hot Chocolate, $1.25
With a few tables along the sides of the eatery, along with rows and rows of candy, chips, and non-perishable food items, patrons at Jack’s Place can bask in the ambiance of a supermarket atmosphere as they inhale their $1.50 small hotdog.
Some may call it grungy, but for those on a budget, it’s paradise.
