We were looking for a restaurant near Barrington Stage in downtown Pittsfield. I love ribs and barbecue. But I'm reluctant to order them up north because they just don't measure up to what I've been spoiled on in Tennessee where I used to travel frequently for business. I was pleasantly surprised by Mad Jacks. The baby backs were to die... More

It's taken a long time for my husband and I to get here; as a non-red-meat-eater, I didn't find the idea all that appealing. But we went tonight, and both had excellent meals. He had the St. Louis' ribs - the full rack actually defeated him (don't think I've seen that before), and he loved them. He did have to... More

Went for dinner around 7PM on a Sunday Night. They were out of baby back, spare and beef ribs, all they had left was St. Louis. One of us ordered St; Louis rib plate (4 ribs, 2 sides) with mac & cheese and slaw, the other had brisket with slaw and fries. Slaw has anise in it, which gives it... More

A few of us were looking forward to stopping by here. When my wife and I walked in I thought we went from Pittsfield to the South walking through the door. The music set the tone along with the decor. Our waitress, Mylissa, was friendly and very helpful with any question we had. My wife had the Jumbalaya and I... More

We had dinner here before going to a play at the Barrington Stage Company. My wife had the brisket and I had the Carolina pulled pork. She had the sweet potato fries and cole slaw. I had baked beans and cole slaw. Everything was excellent. We were surprised at the quality of the barbecue as we are both from NC... More

Went by on a Sunday night, basically because most of Pittsfield was closed and this was open. We were told up front that they were our of several menu items, particually the brisket. Seem sthat they are closed on Monday so whatever they sell out of on Saturday is never restocked. Decided on the "rib sampler" which consists of four... More

I remembered this place from three years ago when we visited the Berkshires. It was very memorable then and again on this trip. The barbeque here is awesome. Beef ribs are a rare find in the right half of the country, but they have them here. I was dying for their ribs again. I don't eat pork ribs. The beef... More

I went to MadJack's today for lunch. When we walked in we were greeted and told we could sit anywhere. We chose a comfortable booth and admired the beautiful lights on the ceiling and the pleasant atmosphere. The waitress was very nice and welcomed us to our first visit to the restaurant. I ordered the pulled pork which came with... More

We went to Madjacks as a choice of a friend, I was apprehensive because I am not a BBQ fan. What a great meal, the menu had a few things that I liked so I went ahead and ordered a Beef Brisket plate sliced thin. It was melt in your mouth delicious. My wife had Beef Etouffee , the waiter... More

We ordered our food to go. Got back to our place and our liquidy sides ran onto our fries causing them to be soggy, we are literally a block away. This isn't real bbq, I'm sorry. We were very disappointed, I could have baked chicken in the oven and just squirted bbq sauce on it and came out better. It... More
