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.

    After months of social distancing, I was looking forward to going out to lunch with a friend, and spending my local money locally. 13.00 for a take out burger, but then a 20% gratuity added? In my experience tipping is for someone taking the order, serving the food, clearing the table, and doing the dishes. In other words, a gratuity is for the SERVICE, not the food. Tipping on take-out is usually voluntary. AND, I usually DO tip on take out, but automatically adding 20% ?? That defeats the purpose of rewarding SERVICE that has been exemplary. Then, as I leave I notice the ad in the window is advertising a 10.00 classic, and I'm wondering why I paid 13.00? Exemplary service?? I don't think so. I'm disappointed, and know there are many other places in town that need the business. If you want your locals back, treat them well. Please. WE went through the hard times, too.

    18% tip automatically added to our takeout order bill. Super tacky. For a couple salads, kids burger, Caesar wrap and meatloaf.....our bill was $88!!!!! This better be amazing food that we eat in the car!!!

    Great food and service. When we asked to split, they gave us individual baskets and full servings of fries! Everything was hot and fresh.

    Just 2 of us, but this was the only place my wife and I were able to walk in and be seated immediately. Most buildings are smaller around here, so sitting in pairs usually works out best. General store, ice cream bar, restaurant.

    This place was fantastic! I was happy they offered vegan options. I got the goddess bowl(?) and it was so bomb! My daughter really enjoyed the grilled cheese but the “tomato soup” was literally a cup of marinara sauce. It was weird. Our server was super friendly. We will definitely be back, just please upgrade your soup!
