Not A Good Memory

In 1996, I ate a Jack's several times and it was outstanding. I had a chance to return this September. The chicken and ribs were pretty good, but the chopped pork was tasteless. I had told my wife and others what a treat this would be. Instead it turned into a Halloween trick on me. I was very... read more

I have been to other bbq places in clermont and they all exceeded this place. This place was expensive for what you got and it needs to be updated. Same place as when jack benny was there.

A genuine experience for BBQ and food craft lovers, juicy smoky meats served in a folksy setting. I really recommend the BBQ pulled pork sandwich, best I ever had. So glad we were introduced to this gem by our US relatives. We´ll come back for sure.

First this is cafeteria style and if it is your first visit the staff looks at you funny. But most important the food isn't worth it

I have read drastically differing opinions of Jack's on this site (and dare I say others). I personally think Jack's is good solid BBQ. The flavor is good but not to strong. If you like really smokey BBQ then Jack's may not be for you. If you like to taste high quality meat and not just smoke, then Jack's is... More

This place has been here forever and I mean forever. It is order at the counter and then find a seat. The BBQ is made daily which you can smell from the outside of the building when they are cooking. It is a very small place and sometimes it is hard to get a seat but a lot of the... More

The best smoked turkey sandwich. Buns are always light and fresh and turkey portion is generous. Jack's has their own special sauce - we buy a bottle for home use too! I love their coleslaw - finely ground cabbage with a vinegar instead of mayonnaise base. I always feel like I've eaten healthy at Jack's BBQ!

I will admit that I am no BBQ expert, but do not waste your time & money: Rib Dinner: Dry, no smoke flavor. Dry rub does not have any flavor either. Chicken Dinner: over cooked and no smoke flavor. The potato salad was tasteless and probably 2 or 3 days old The baked beans were OK, but nothing exciting $31.78... More
