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.

    Waited around 45 minutes on a Saturday evening to be seated. We ordered the crispy Brussels sprouts, loaded French fries, elk burger and egg salad sandwich. The appetizers were great and came out quickly. The entrees took a bit but the service was super transparent and accommodating. The egg salad sandwich was about what you’re likely expecting and the tots on the side were perfect. The elk burger wasn’t anything special but is a good novelty. Of course we topped off dinner with ice cream. We highly recommend the Coffee.

    We were in Jackson 2/4-2/8 and visited Jackson Drug Co daily ;) Loved their margaritas and bison burgers! I can't remember our waitresses name but she was so sweet and took great care of us... and after the first day knew our drink order.

    Great food, atmosphere, location. I loved the steak fries and Heath shake. Service was a bit slow and they forgot part of our order. Please check on your patrons frequently.

    We are in Jackson for a few days from the East Coast. We have eaten out for almost every meal and this place is by far the best food we've found in Jackson so far. We had burgers and chili fries for lunch yesterday. Today we had wings with the huckleberry BBQ sauce, crispy Brussel sprouts and French onion soup. It was absolutely delicious. And considering how busy they were the takeout was hot. The hostess was very nice. And the history of their facility is partially why we love it. It's modern shake shop right on the corner of the square. We loved it. And highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good, casual, family friendly place to eat.

    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.
