Haven't been to Jazzy's for several years and we were headed to another restaurant but the smell at the intersection drew is in. The place has been remodeled since last time. Friendly service. I ordered a pork sandwich with beans and potato salad. The meat is tender. The sauce is either mild or hot. Mild means just that, very mild.... More

Jazzy's was decent. I had the beef brisket which was shredded. It was a little fatty and drenched with sauce. The mac n cheese, greens & corn bread were good. No problem getting seated on a Friday night, but the carry out was steady. It was conveniently located to the Hampton Inn where we stayed overnight. Not bad, just not... More

I'm sure most people have driven by it a hundred times and never once thought to stop. It's like the saying "Never judge a book by its cover." And while I don't dare to read a book I'm never going to judge a place by its appearance, that just means they spend more on their product (or food in this... More

I have been there with some friends to taste its ribs. The taste was fantastic and the amount was large enough. Good quality at a good price.

We have been patrons of Jazzy's for many years. Consistently good BBQ & sides. Bonus on Fridays, when they offer collard greens, Mac & cheese, and cornbread. Lucky for us, they are located between our home & our local movie complex! All the more reason to stop in. Occasionally the brisket is a little too fatty for our taste, but... More

Jazzy's BBQ is delicious. I love their sauce so much I buy it by the quart. The mac and cheese is only served on Friday but it is yummy. I really recommend the BBQ pork sandwich and the sausage.

We went to Jazzy's on a Thursday. They make the unfortunate mistake of NOT offering the MOST POPULAR sides EVERY DAY of the week. If I am going to enjoy real southern BBQ, I want it to be complemented with collard greens and baked mac n cheese. Or other classic southern HOT Sides like green beans or mashed potatoes. However,...
