    Cool Cadillac Jacks

    Sometimes, I see in the American movies diner signs with "Cadillac Jacks" written. Is it a chain of road restaurants? A brand?

    Thank You

    There is a variety of diners, sports bars, and restaurants named Cadillac Jack's. I don't know if they are all part of the same chain.

    This is a Cadillac. Jack, I think, is supposed to be the owner of the diner and the owner of one of these cars. I think that is a cute fictional name that the movies are using to enhance the setting.

    See Cadillac Jack's Sports Bar - Page

    As you see, it's an actual franchise. I don't know whether the Cadillac Jack the OP mentions having seen in movies resembles it at all or not, but there it is.

    Bushwhacker, instead of sending your thanks in a separate message, just click the Like button please.

    The reason is that it is flagged as a new post, so we think you might have a follow-up question or something to add. Those of us with slow internet connections and/or old computers have to waste valuable time waiting for it to appear.

    Thank you.
