The Food is the Thing!

Delicious BBQ, friendly service. This is a little family run restaurant with some of the best sliced BBQ in town. The sweet tea is also wonderful.

This has been a popular place on hy 27 for years. The good about this place is the quick service and the cleanliness. The brisket was a bit dry and the pork just OK! Probably won't return.

Great little local BBQ. Simple eatery with fresh BBQ. Pork being pulled as we ordered. Excellent sauces and other menu choices.

No matter which direction we're coming from it's always worth the detour. Pulled pork sandwiches and baked beans always hit the spot.

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.

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 disappointed.

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
