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.

    Such a cool place to stop with a lot of history in Jackson. I got the elk burger and the huckleberry sauce was definitely a novel touch. Cool to see such a old establishment well-preserved and hoppin’.

    Had a lot of trouble finding places open to eat for dine in during this pandemic. Tried several places that had waits of well over an hour. Then walked into this place and was seated immediately. The food was good and fairly reasonable. Really enjoyed the ice cream.

    We had great food for such a reasonable price... The waitress was quite fast and attentive. I ordered milkshake and received big, nice glass with the cherry on top and in addition, they gave me the "left over", that was half of glass - extra. My kids received kids menu with crayons to entertain themselves.

    7/20/2020 - Super cool building and great food! A little expensive but that’s expected for Jackson. Not too long of a wait either for dinner, about a half and hour. Great to see everyone wearing masks! Would definitely eat here again!

    Our second summer coming here and I finally remember to make a review. This place has not change, the food is still so delicious. We got the chilli fries, an Elk burger with the huckleberry sauce, and the bison burger, we got tater tots, a nice Jackson Hole beer, and a delicious huckleberry ice cream. We ended our camping trip very happy by revisiting Jackson Drug, and we will keep coming back!
