Unique and tasty BBQ. Tried the brisket one time, BBQ sandwich another trip. Both top notch. They have a nice selection of house-made sauces. Good service too.

I used to eat at Jabo's pushcart in Greenwood Village when he was smoking everything on site in a trailer mounted smoker! His pushcart was huge, and so was the line to eat! The city of Greenwood Village tried numerous times to shut Jabo down; probably because he was doing great business, some of it maybe because he is African-American.... More

In town on business and saw Jabo's had great yelp reviews so had to give it a try. We weren't disappointed - we were greeted enthusiastically and were offered different sauces to sample and choose from. Pulled pork and ribs were dynamite, and the scones were superior. A friend bought a bottle of sauce and everyone in our party enjoyed... More

Based on reviews we selected this outstanding bbq restaurant and was not disappointed. It's located in a strip mall and from the outside is not all that appealing. The interior is OK but looks old. Those are not the reasons we dined there, the reason was the BBQ which is more than excellent. The server will bring an escargot tray... More

I went in after working and had a great time. The owner was present and went through the process of figuring out what kind of flavored bbq sauce I liked most. He came out and I got to sample a variety of sauces. (They have 22 different sauces). After figuring out the one I wanted, Jabo explained how to tell... More

I totally do not understand what everyone is raving about. Must be friends of the owner, cuz the food here is horrible. I have lived all over the world and eaten cuisines in many countries. The recurring factor is that the food was always fresh wherever I went. At Jabos it's like leftovers were warmed up. AND this crap is... More

Eat the scone first! WOW!!! I have eaten BBQ at most of the DTC spots but none of them are in the same class as Jabos. This was my first time, and the service was great. The server gave us good suggestions and was attentive. It took a little time to get our food (15 minutes maybe) but it was... More

They call them scones, but what they are is fluffy delicious and heavenly little pastries. The barbecue is good, too. :-)

Very Expensive for Very Poor Quality and it took over 1hour to get it. The brisket tasted like charcoal fluid. Don't do it.

Worst restaurant experience ever! The owner was YELLING at my girlfriend for simply not liking the food. Let me say that again, HE WAS LITERALLY YELLING AT US IN FRONT OF EVERYONE and disrespecting my cute little innocent girlfriend. I have never heard of this happening and I still can't even believe it myself. Ok so here's what happened. We... More
