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

We've been coming here for many years and we believe this is the best Barbeque in the state. The meat has a great flavor even without sauce, their rub and whatever wood they use gives it a great flavor. Their sauces are decent not the best but we go for the quality and taste of the meat. There is always... More

We searched the area and found this little gem. Their motto is if "when the chimney ain't-we ain't open. They offer great smoked brisket, turkey, chicken and ribs. They are available in either sandwich or platters. It is eat in or take out. Great taste of barbeque.

I remember going here as a child with my grandparents....and it's still the same. Simple, good bbq. Much like a kitchen line, you walk your tray around, give your order and pick up the sides you want, pay at the end of the line and find a table, they bring your bbq out to you. It's good, not great but... More

Skip by all those chain joints on Hwy 50 to eat some real food. Been eating at this local joint for more than 35 years and have never been disappointed. Don't get to the area much but when I do I always make it a point to stop in. My favorite is the pork. It is chopped with some great... More
