Jack’s Restaurant and Bar Pleasant Hill menu in Pleasant Hill, California, USA

Enticing menu, good drinks. I tried the lamb meatballs and the Ruben sandwich with oregano garlic fries. The food is good and prices very reasonable.
The meatballs were good although a bit dry. I decided to try them because they use mint as an ingredient, something I would like seeing more of. The tomato sauce was a bit overwhelming and the mint definitely added to the meat’s flavor, when you could taste it (more on that in a minute).
The Ruben is made with thousand islands dressing, which some restaurants have sadly moved away from. The corned beef is lean and of good quality. So here’s the ‘but’ and it is largely on me: the food is noticeably salty. For the past 5 years, I have cut back on my sodium intake, and others will likely feel different about it. If, however, you are like me, pace yourself and order more water… Good restaurant, but I’m unlikely to try it again.
