Scrumptious and Sustaining

Four of us ordered the pull pork sandwich which was very tasty with plenty of pork. The next time we order it will be without the BBQ sauce, which took away from the wonderful smokehouse taste. It is a popular place so be prepared to line up around the lunch and supper hour. Highly recommended.

The food here is great. We had a combo meal with chicken, ribs, corn, cornbread, cole slaw, and fries and collard greens. Everything was delicious. The 4 person meal filled up the four of us and we had leftovers. Unfortunately, I had no room left to try the sweet potato pie for dessert. It's my new favorite barbecue restaurant. I... More

I was planning a visit here until I saw the place on Dirty Dinning on LocalTen TV news. They were closed down by the state. The place is filthy. Not a word I use often. It eve looks bad from the outside. Kitchen full of roaches and more. My last visit. Shocking part is it is the same manager who... More

I grew up in Texas so I'm pretty picky about BBQ. This place is as good or better than any of the ones I have been to. If you like Texas style BBQ, you won't be disappointed. Oh yeah, the sides are just as good. I make it a point to go here every time I visit the area. Keep... More

I have been missing a good plate of bbq. Food is excellent. I had the sampler combo and it fed two of us comfortably. I suggest trying this place out.

My dad lives in Fort Lauderdale and it was so good the 1st time when I visited that I made a return trip. Both times I did have the combo meals. This time I had the combo that included chicken, ribs and pork meat and I think what I liked best was the pork meat. You are allowed two sides... More

I've been to Jack's BBQ Smokehouse every time I am in the area and every time I eat there I am blown away. I usually get a pulled pork platter with collard greens and baked beans and it is just the best I've ever had over and over again. Jack's sense of hospitality is superb, they really know how to...

A great choice to fast food. The brisket was really juicy as was the chicken. That with corn on the cob, baked beans and corn bread made for a great lunch. The combo was $11.99. Not too bad.

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
