If you love smoky BBQ, this is your place. It's a little heavy for my taste, but it definitely has a loyal following. It's the only place in Fort Lauderdale I have found that has collard greens, in fact, they are some of the best I've ever had. I usually go heavy on the vegetables and get a small side... More

Recently visited and ordered three dinners from the drive-thru window. I was told I had to go inside to order three dinners because there are only two people working but he'll let it go this time. Does it really matter where the order is placed if it's the same person taking the order? After that there were no smiles or... More

I love a good smokey BBQ. I have been searching for a great place for years. Every time my wife and I travel, we stop at a couple of local places searching for a great meal. I actually tried Jack's about 15 years ago and was not overly impressed. My guess is they are doing things a little different now.... More

For a girl who doesn't typically like BBQ sauce, Jacks does something right! Get the collard greens and mac.. Absolutely delicious!

Stop in today with a few friends and my husband and I have to say this place is simply amazing. I should have known it was going to be with the hickory smoker outside. The ribs & the pulled pork are a must.

We come here ever year whilst we are in Fort Lauderdale! We always eat outside and the brisket is to die for! When Jack is there he is truly a force of nature!! Back where the guys work is a little rough but the dining area and the bathrooms are first rate! We enjoy eating outside in the happy sunshine,... More

We have been here 3 times. The ribs and brisket are good, but the chicken skin is tough. The sides are fine. If you don't like the smoky flavor, stay away.

We have eaten here frequently over the past few years whenever we are in Florida. It is the best bbq we have found and we have never been disappointed here. If Jack is working he is amazing to watch as he prepares customer's plates. The menu offers plenty of choices and the beans and corn bread are really great.

We love BBQ. Having said that, we don't find that Jack's serves a memorable meal. It's basic BBQ, cooked outside on a smoker grill, but is really non-descript. The restaurant itself needs a make-over and a good cleaning inside and out. We want this place to be successful since it is in our neighborhood but can't really give it more... More
