Great Barbecue Meat

Great food, great service and great price. I have the chicken, pull pork and ribs Everything taste great with smoked flavor and also it came with corn, fries, hush puppies and cole slaw The waitress was friendly and it was not very expensive. Try it! You will like it.

I love the BBQ pulled chicken on garlic toast and sweet potato chips, they are delicious and never greasy. But don't go here on Sunday night (8:15pm) because they won't take your order.... There were only three other tables of patrons and the server walked right by us a dozen times and never made eye contact. At first I though... More

We braved a thunderstorm last night because the husband wanted ribs, and I'm glad we went. If you want good BBQ near the beach, I definitely recommend Charlie & Jake's. It's reasonably priced and really good food. I ordered the pulled chicken sandwich on garlic toast with okra and mac & cheese. The sandwich was pretty great: delicious smoked, tender... More

Its hard to get decent barbecue in Maine. We come here every time we visit florida. I'd definitely recommend the pulled pork, fried pickles and hush puppies

The tables all had sauce bottles and plenty of napkins. Don't forget to try the smoked prime rib roast dinner which costs $5 plus $1 per ounce (8 oz costs $13) - it's unique and really good. Spending a few weeks here to get away from the snow back home, we went back a second time and it was great... More

This is a small BBQ restaurant next door to Texas Roadhouse. We had dinner there with friends and all the food was delicious. I ordered the shrimp and it was great. Went there again for lunch and had the salad. You can get a plain salad, which was very fresh, or you can add meat to it. My husband added... More

Delicious BBQ! We ate here for lunch and it was really good. Huge portions though so had to take a bunch home which is fine.

This is the original location for Charlie and Jake's and is still the best BBQ in Brevard. I think the Suntree location has gone downhill and I've never been to their newer location. If you're looking for a great turkey sandwich and more, OMG, the best! Worth the drive.
