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.

    Fries served cold, kids' chicken strips hard as a rock and overcooked, burgers… not good. I want this place to succeed because it is a cool concept, but they need to start looking at basic quality. Example: fix your watered-down coke and keep cold food cold and hot food hot. Also, the server needs to catch this quality stuff before it goes to the table. On the positive side, the huge pretzel and milkshake were delicious.

    So I didn't love Jackson Drug. This place was frankly kind of weird. It's like they paid $15,000 to have an interior designer redo the space and then they split leaving a very subpar restaurant behind. The buffalo cauliflower wasn't very good and it wasn't tossed in the buffalo sauce. Meanwhile we sat at the bar and watched boxes of ice cream for sundaes and whatnot just sit out in the open air. I get that it's easier to scoop if it's not rock hard but how long do you leave ice cream just sitting about? After watching sundae after sundae get made up with that wonderful Hershey's syrup everyone has at home, we decided not to eat anything else and find another spot. There are better places in Jackson and your ice cream sundae at home is just as good.

    Negative star from me and my hubby. Terrible service, server had an amazingly bad attitude, she barely served us. We were in the tiny table where 2 plates barely fit and no one bothered to pick up our plates as we were done. So unfortunately due to risk of falling plates we had to put our plates on a clean table next to us. Bison burger was so dry and tasteless. Hummus burger was also bad and looked and tasted horrible. Buffalo cauliflower was deep fried tiniest pieces of cauliflower in thickest batter possible. All we tasted was fried batter. It was a disastrous experience both food and service wise. Never going back or recommending anyone.

    Stopped by in October of 2022 after hearing good reviews of this place. Tried their famous grilled cheese which was lovely. Their milkshakes we also great especially the ones with booze after a day of hiking. We were seated fast and the atmosphere was wonderful.

    We stopped into this restaurant for dinner last night. The atmosphere was great and there was a short wait for a table. I ordered the elk burger and ordered it medium. It came out well done but it still tasted good but was a little dry. It would have been much better on the more rare side. I would order it rare if you like it medium. We also tried the jumbo pretzel and that was good as well. The service was decent but they were little slow getting back to the table but that was understandable being that they were busy. I would recommend trying it out. It is in a good location with the small park just outside.
