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.

    I had a phenomenal experience at this restaurant! It’s 5 stars due to the exceptional milkshakes that flawlessly captured the nostalgic malt flavor often absent in today's dining scene. It was an absolute delight! Moreover, the burgers were incredibly delicious, and the service felt genuinely personal. Our server, who hailed from Europe, went the extra mile to make us feel welcome and well-cared for. While it's worth noting that the wait times can be a bit lengthy, the quality of the food and the overall experience make it well worth the wait. All in all, a fantastic place to dine!

    This has got to be the best place to get a burger in Jackson. The burgers were amazing! Great fries and tots, and excellent homemade BBQ. The drinks were stellar! I’ve never had such a smooth whiskey mule. We couldn’t believe how fast the service was, especially at the 5 o’clock hour. Our server was very friendly! Also, a great view of the antler arches.

    Don’t miss the huckleberry milkshake! Fun vibe and food that hits the spot. I loved the smash burger and fries.

    Very nice!!! Sits on the corner of the square, great view of the square and antler arches. One table in the front corner is ideal for this. Food was great with quick service. Don’t wander around the square thinking of getting a shake on the way back to your room. Get it to go , we missed out two night in a row.

    After walking around Jackson Town Square, we stumbled upon this spot and figured we’d give it a shot for some treats. The vibe inside was super chill, with those cool green pastel colors making it feel cozy and relaxed. The staff were really nice and got our orders sorted out quick. The milkshakes were on point! Creamy, flavorful, and just what we needed to cool off after walking around. Overall, this place is a good pick if you’re in the mood for a tasty shake or some ice cream. The laid-back atmosphere, delicious treats, and good vibes make it a spot worth checking out when you’re in the area.
