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.

    Ate there tonight. Took over 30 minutes to get our food, which arrived cold. I ordered a grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup. Soup was room temperature with soggy croutons on top and the cheese on my sandwich wasn't even melted. My husbands Bison Burger was bland and dry. My daughters grilled cheese was only toasted on one side.... the waitress never checked on us. We never received a refill on our drinks (even when our food came out). Then we get the bill at the end and see an automatic 18% gratuity! The food and service was something I never want to experience again in my lifetime. Absolutely would NOT recommend.

    Forgot pictures but they had much more than just burgers. Mac and cheese was delicious. Pretzel with cheese was also good. A few IPAs was the surprise. They had a lot of good stuff but we were full off the appetizers.

    We did not like this restaurant. The food was mediocre but the waitress said a total of maybe five words to both of us, and I’m not even exaggerating. There are much better place than this in Jackson Hole. The hostess was nice but that was it. Still can’t get over the fact the waitress barely noticed us, seemed like she did not speak very much English (which is alright, but she could’ve at least been a little more accommodating or tried to attempt to answer any of my questions about the menu) and mumbled two words when she handed us the check. Please try to do better!

    Cool restaurant in a town of cool places to check out. Wings app was great as was the Elk burger. If you haven't ever had Elk before it is very lean meat so best to order it no more than medium. Wish i had room to try something with the in house made icecream!

    Excellent food and really cool place. You can eat inside or out, but you should have come early for dinner or be prepared to wait a bit. I had the elk burger with smoked Gouda, bacon and huckleberry BBQ sauce, my wife had the steak fingers and both were fantastic. Honestly, it's one of the best burgers I've ever had. To be fair, I'm a big fan of elk as a protein, but... WOW this was good. For dessert we both had marshmallow milkshakes. Good Lord, I'm full. And happy.
