Topped with mustard, lettuce, tomato, pickle and onion, the JAX Bacon Cheeseburger can be served with a half-pound Angus beef patty for $7.50 or a third-pound patty for $6.

Like all burgers at JAX Burgers Fries & Shakes, it is served upside-down to keep the buns from getting soggy, Manager Jennifer Maldonado said.

Maldonado is running the store while the owners—her sister and brother-in-law Amanda and Anthony Lara—are deployed overseas in the military.

“Most of our customers are regulars, so they all know our story,” she said. “Customer service is a big thing, and that’s what we really pride ourselves on—making people feel welcome.”

Other burgers range from the Baja Burger to the Shroom Burger and Portobello Veggie Burger. Fries on the menu include chili cheese, Buffalo, garlic, Cajun, bacon cheese and sweet potato.
