I've been to the old grumpy Jakes BBQ when the old owner had it and it was fantastic. Now the food is bland and tremendously expensive. Not much I can say except I'll never go there again. 80 dollars later was an expensive mistake. Small portions, no flavor and a total waste of our time. Wasn't impressed at all.

We tried it based on many good reviews. The bbq was average. In fact I found the pulled pork to be dry. The french fries were hot and good. We also enjoyed the coleslaw. The service was poor. We waited about 45 minutes for a sampler plate and a pulled pork sandwich. Many different waitresses promised that our food would... More

This place was great, the service makes you feel like you are the only one in the restaurant, like in previous post, everyone on the staff is concerned with you being satisfied, and happy with your meal. The food is Awesome. The only thing I hate is we visited this restaurant on our last day instead of the first, because... More

The food was very good, prices reasonable, and service fast and friendly. The menu is mostly bar-b-que, but has sandwiches and a great selection of side dishes. It is located between Show Low and Pinetop, on the main highway, but a little hard to spot if your not looking for it, but worth the effort to locate it.

Wow. Very decent bbq. The smoke flavor is pronounced, especially in the brisket and the ribs. We bought the super combo which had chicken, pulled pork, 1/4 rack of ribs and brisket. Our order was heavy on chicken and pulled pork. So much so, that the two of us ended up with leftovers for another meal (not a complaint!). The... More

In my opinion the prices were in line with the portions and quality. The servers were attentive and offered suggestions that were spot on. Try the grilled corn, you'll be amazed! The BBQ pork ribs were tender and tasty with plenty of sauce on the side. Definitely planning on a re-visit when back in the area.

We've been here many times over the past few years and always come back for more. Meat is lean and the BBQ sauce is good. Portions are generous, so you can share if you're not too hungry. The baked corn on the cob is delish!!!

Very friendly staff and quick service. We each got a bbq sandwhich, one pork and one brisket. It was so tender and the bbq sauce they gave us on the side was delicious. Would definitely go again!
