Outstanding Food, Friendly Staff, Reasonable Prices--What's Not to Love?

I've lived in South Florida for over 30 years, but have never found a BBQ restaurant that I've truly loved. Until now. i drove by Jack's the other morning, and their smokers were going strong. The smell was amazing. Made a mental note to try it soon. Today, my husband and I were closely... read more

Been there about a year ago and wasn't impressed. Decided to try again to see if things had changed. People were complaining about the food as they were leaving. I got in line to order with two people in front of me. The order taker walked off after completing the order she wad taken. I waited several behind the next... More

we smelt the smoke on our way into fort Lauderdale in the morning and made a mental note to try the ribs on the way home. Shireena served us. She was very patient guiding us with recommendations. The ribs were succulent and melt in the mouth. You would drive past it and not look twice but miss it at your... More

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

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

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.

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.
