Jackson Drug

Jackson Drug, East Deloney Avenue, Jackson, WY, USA

Jackson Drug is a historic and iconic soda fountain and drug store located on the north side of the Town Square in Jackson. Many long-time Jackson Hole locals have fond memories of rushing there after school to get a root beer float and gossip with friends, or eating a hot pretzel at the counter on a bright winter day. It was started by Bruce Porter in 1919 on the east side of the Square, and moved into the famous stone building on the north side of the square in 1937. It operated continuously until 2001. The building was then sold and a furniture business moved into the space. But in 2010 the Gill family repurchased the building and reopened Jackson Drug last year. A century has gone by and the revamped drugstore/diner is still famous for its milkshakes and fries, and also serves homemade ice cream and excellent burgers made from beef from the family’s ranch.

    We stopped in for a casual late lunch on the weekend and were pleasant surprised by the menu. We ordered some dishes to share, the elk burger, the cauliflower wings, and the Brussels sprouts. The wings were AWESOME. Great breading and flavor. Same with the Brussels sprouts. The elk burger was a bit disappointing as it did seem pretty overcooked so it ended up being really dry.

    Seated quickly. Not great service. My father in law ordered the chili dog (mind you we came here 2 years ago & he ordered the same thing. Loved it and that’s why we came back). When he got it, the bun was rock hard and his hot dog and fries were cold. Completely inedible. My husband’s elk burger was dry. When the server came over we let her know about the chili dog & she said, ‘well the chili dog does get cooked first so that’s probably why’. I THINK she took it off the bill, but honestly I just wanted to get out. Won’t be going back & wouldn’t recommend.

    We were hoping to go to the Local for a nice early dinner but we weren't exactly dressed for such a fancy place as they didn't open until 5 for dinner. So we saw this place and thought that we would try it.We were seated right away and ordered our drinks. The tea wasn't very good and neither was the Sprite. Food was good, not great.

    Good food ( bowl of chili) and great huckleberry malt! Staff at counter were very nice. They stayed patient when a rude large family group came in and basically started shouting a large order of to go items at them. Takes so little to be respectful and kind.

    We’ve been here for ice cream on each trip to Jackson. I’m a big fan of the huckleberry ice cream. My husbands loves the coffee milkshakes, using Cowboy Coffee from right across the street! This trip we also had food with more sustenance: elk and bison burgers. HUGE burgers, prepared well…tastes great. Try with the huckleberry barbecue sauce. I didn’t know I needed that in my life. :)
