In January 2012 the VC Star reported that the east coast based Jake's Wayback Burgers would be opening its first California location in Newbury Park. Well that didn't materialize and now the Star reports that Jake's IS indeed opening in Ventura County, at the Gateway Plaza in Ventura, 4960 Telephone Road. It has since opened in early April 2013.
Jake's is currently hiring and you can apply at waybackburgers.com/apply.
According to their recent craiglist ad, "Wayback Burgers began in 1991 as Jake's Hamburgers with a single restaurant in Newark, DE. Jake's Hamburgers had always served big, juicy hand-made burgers and real milkshakes, crafted to order by a friendly staff. Delivering the freshest, most delicious food possible was and is Jake's Wayback Burgers only philosophy."
Speaking of burgers, here's a compilation of other burger joints that have opened up in town in recent years.
