Did you know that Jake’s Western Grill in Lynden has new owners?

In late 2017, restaurant veteran Vicka Haywood took the Lynden eatery over, and she’s made a heck of a lot of exciting changes in that time. If you haven’t been to the restaurant lately, now might be a good time to revisit Jake’s for some tasty barbecue, salads, sandwiches and more.

Here’s a rundown of some of the recent changes at Jake’s:

  • Meatloaf Mondays: It’s not even on the menu, technically, but every Monday at Jake’s Western Grill, customers can get a special plate of fresh-made meatloaf, just like mom used to make, for lunch or dinner.
  • Breakfast: Jake’s is open for breakfast starting at 7 on weekend mornings. Until 11 on Friday and Saturday and until 1 on Sunday, customers can eat eggs benedict, French toast, Denver omelets and more. Oh, and there’s bacon. Lots of bacon. A limited breakfast menu is available during the 11-to-1 Sunday brunch hours.
  • New menu options: Fresh additions to the Jake’s menu include chicken wings, a tuna salad sandwich, a super popular B.L.T., a mac-and-cheese burger and loaded tater tots. There’s also a build-your-own pulled pork sandwich that lets you mix and match toppings to create the perfect concoction.
  • Online reservations: That’s right, you can book a table at Jake’s online! Just visit their website, enter a date and time, and you’re good to go. Get a jump on the Saturday night crowd, maybe?

Of course, Jake’s also is continuing the classic traditions that have made the restaurant such a hit BBQ establishment in the Pacific Northwest. The professional smoker is still there, and the restaurant’s delectable meats are still smoked on site. There’s still the tasty cob-shaped cornbread, the gluten-free spice rub that Jake’s created with The Spice Hut in Bellingham, and the friendly service that patrons have come to appreciate since 2008.

The restaurant still caters weddings, reunions and corporate events throughout Whatcom and Skagit Counties, too.

If you’re in Lynden for an upcoming event, or if you’re just passing through, stop by Jake’s Western Grill for some BBQ done right. And if you want to chat about having Jake’s cater a western-themed party or special event, feel free to reach out to Vicka. She has great experience and advice.
