Pathetic - they need to be more focused on passing their health inspections than this nonsense.

The Pottstown Jake's Wayback Burgers health inspections have all been close to perfect scores. You can review them on the Montgomery County Health Departments website.

Potto- You are lying and not telling the truth. All reports can be reviewed at the Montgomery County Health Dept. web site. All reports since opening are PERFECT.

The Best - That's where I saw them - three food storage vilolations in January!!!!!
Potto February 19, 2013 at 01:27 AM
Three vilolations is not PERFECT

I want to thank everyone at Pottstown Patch and our faithful customers!! My name is Chris Blount and I am the manager at Jakes Wayback. I want to start by saying Jakes takes pride in our food and our store. So everyone knows you can view our health inspection on the Pottstown Patch Website. We have nothing to hide and are proud of our inspections. Lets go over the inspection....... So the first thing is a scoop in our fries was not sticking straight up... I spoke with the inspector and told him we all wear gloves all the time. If you look beside the violation it says "COS" that means corrected on site. (NO RISK FOR CONTAMINATION) The second violation was water on the floor by our dish sink.... We just washed dishes and yes over spray gets on the floor and the container for overflow on the ice machine had 4 drops in it. None of these affect food or beverage and honestly a little ridiculous. (NO RISK FOR CONTAMINATION) The third is for a light bulb and out of date fire extingisher. (NO RISK FOR CONTAMINATION) So if you know how to read a health inspection up in the right hand corner it says "Risk Violations Count" and our report has 0!!!! Just so everyone knows yes we changed the light bulbs and extinguisher ect... I have worked in the business for 20 years and I have NEVER seen a perfect inspection!!! I would hope that everyone can see through whats being said an what the motive is... So now thats over lets move on!! The TRIPPLE TRIPPLE!!!!!
Chris Blount February 19, 2013 at 04:32 AM
If you come in Tommorow and order the TRIPPLE TRIPPLE I will give you fries and a drink free!!!!! We have lots of great things going on and you have to check out our Facebook page. I will be posting deals and keep everyone updated! Thanks again to everyone for making Jakes what it is today! We have a great staff and awesome guest!! I am proud to be a part of it!! If you have never been to Jakes please let us know!! Thank you, Chris Blount

Potto As you see from the managers explanation on the report on how to read the report. You are wrong in your statement and are not properly educated to make such assessments. Get a life and better education.
Potto February 19, 2013 at 09:25 PM
The Best: anyone that condones the montrosity that is a triple triple burger, is a moron. Wayback should be ashamed of offering such a stupid meal - over 5000 calories for the burger alone. Oh, and if that is not enough, why not give some free fries with it! Disgusting. Also, you need to change your name to "The Worst" - which would be indicative of your grammar and general ability to construct meaningful sentences.
Chris Blount February 19, 2013 at 11:49 PM
So this was supposed to just be a nice article for the people in Pottstown to know whats going on out there in the community. Again like the inspection...... Lets get the facts before we go any further!!! The "Tripple Tripple" is NOT 5000 calories!! That was an assumption that was made by taking our Jake Burger and multiplying it by 9...Again someone trying to make up facts that are not accurate. The "TRIPPLE TRIPPLE" is in fact 1980 calories. We are not "ASHAMED" of any aspect of our company nor is there anything "MORONIC" about being one of the fastest growing franchises!!! Im not sure why some people are so upset about a burger?? Maybe another motive?? For all the burger lovers out there........THE TRIPPLE TRIPPLE IS HERE TO STAY!!!

Potto or is it POTTY-I was using a simple explination, so a person of your simple mental capabilites could understand.
Potto February 20, 2013 at 12:39 AM
Blount - Maybe it is your pal, The BEST, and his/her juvenile attitude that you should be complaining about. Must be an employee. It is amazing that the franchise owner, the manager, and this BEST person should come out and have to defend themeselves constantly, and with prejudice in some instances. Anyway, I do not care what you say - even if it is 1980 calories - that's hardly a defence, is it? Being touted as a family friendly restaurant I would NEVER set foot in there. Enticing people to eat it as quickly as possible too.The last thing I'd want is my family to see is some overweight pig being cheered on scoffing a nine pattie and cheese burger, burping and slurping all over the place, ketchup dripping from his mouth and showing everyone what's in his gob cause there's too much food in there. Nice family values you guys have. Yuk. Good luck and goodbye. Triple has one P by the way.

Hey Potto, I know this is a free country (well, used to be anyway) and you have the right to your opinion and the right to let others know what your opinion is. I can judge by your comments, that you probably are into healthier eating and that is fine. I, on the other hand, do enjoy a good burger from time to time and find Jake's burgers very tasty. I don't eat them everyday, and I'm sure Mr. Blount would agree, that would probably not be very healthy. However, just because one has the right to voice an opinion, doing so in such a rude and disrespectful manner shows a lack of character. We all have differing opinions and that is fine. Notice I have not called you moronic, juvenille or any other of the words you consider acceptable in a conversation. How about next time, if you don't want to patronize a particular establishment, you just keep those thoughts to yourself and allow others to make their own decisions without your ridicule. You obviously had an agenda to disparage Jake's with the health inspection report, without fully understanding what the results were. Again, a lack of respect and character. Mr. Blount, keep up the excellent work and God Bless you, your family and employees.
Potto March 02, 2013 at 12:50 AM
God does not exist. I understand that much.
Potto March 02, 2013 at 12:52 AM
So - if it is a free country how dare you tell me to keep my thoughts to myself?
Will March 02, 2013 at 03:57 AM
I see a civil conversation is not something you want to have. You are one of those people that enjoy making yourself look foolish because you think you are better and smarter and have to prove it on a message board. I'm not going to bother even following this post anymore, so go ahead and have your final say with some rude remark. I'll still pray for you.
Chris Blount March 12, 2013 at 04:13 AM
Will, I want to THANK YOU for for the support and kind words!! It was an article to introduce our new menu and show everyone whats going on in the community. We have lots of new stuff and some healthy options as well as the "TRIPLE TRIPLE" and yes I know its one P lol. Thats was a communication issue...... So I would like to invite you to have a burger on me!! Just ask for Chris. You have a great day and we will see you soon!!
