We totally stumbled on Jackson’s Burger by chance. We were driving around aimlessly trying to make our way to PJ Old Town when the BF asked me to stop. I literally made an emergency stop :P
He has spotted the famous but elusive Jackson’s Burger. Okay maybe not elusive, but we could never have figured out how to go there.
It’s parked right outside a house (which belongs to Jackson, I assume) and somewhat obstructed by a big tree, you might miss it if you’re not observant.
# – Jackson’s Burger.
Operated by a couple (whom I will assume to be Jackson and his wife), they sell all kinds of simple and fresh homemade burgers. There were only 4 types of food listed on the menu – beef burger, chicken burger, fish fillet burger and hotdog but I was told they also sell amazing crab and prawn burgers, which sadly I only found out after.
Apparently Jackson’s Burger has been around for years and is very popular among PJ natives. Blame my judgmental nature, but when it comes to famous food places, I almost always expect the proprietors to be arrogant but this is certainly not the case with Jackson’s Burger. The lady is soft-spoken and friendly. She was very sweet and patient with a girl in primary school who had difficulty recalling her father’s long list of orders.
# – I think they are Jackson and his wife?
By the way, Jackson’s Burger is also listed as a legendary food truck on 4sq ;)
We had a beef burger each and I must say, it really lived up to its notoriety. The patty was juicy, thick and flavourful. With just some cucumbers , onions and chili sauce, it was a simple but very satisfying burger. I like my meat in its natural form, which basically means I don’t crave for frankfurters, spam, burgers or other heavily processed meat but I really like Jackson’s because it tasted very natural and not overly processed.
# – ST was loving it.
Just look at this. So succulent, so juicy!

If you’ve eaten at Jackson’s, what’s your favourite burger? Tell me please so I know what else to order next time! Thanks :D
