Taaaaasty!!!!!!

We ate here over the lunch hour on a Friday. It was busy but service was good. You order at the counter and wait for your number to be called. There is quite a bit of seating but its 'cozy'. The burnt ends usually go pretty quickly but we lucked out. They still had some at 1230. :) They have... read more

You read that right. This place is and Oasis in the desert that is Nebraska. The meat is served to you un-sauced. My brother and I ordered the "Jack's Phat Combo" with a side of potato salad and corn bread. The serving size had plenty of food for the two of us. Cornbread was too dry and sweet for our... More

Great tasting BBQ. The Brisket is as good as it gets and the service was exceptional. A restaurant with a bright future.

This place is not fancy, but the food was excellent. Everyone in our party was very pleased with their food. To look at the walls, one can see they have won many awards. I highly recommend this place.

Don't let the name fool you. These are the best burnt ends I have ever had. Their brisket is awesome also.

You will not leave hungry. I had Jack' Combo. The ribs were melt in your mouth. Sides tasty. Plastic forks. I'll probably do take out next time. Well worth the money. They have won many awards for their product and I can see why.

Had the jumbo brisket sandwich which came with cheese and sauce. The brisket is sliced thin and was piled high on a hamburger bun. The sandwich was over the top good. Some of the best I have had. The potato salad was also outstanding. The only drawback is the crowds and the limited seating. However, the food is well worth... More

If you're looking for great BBQ in Lincoln, this is definitely a place to consider. It's fast, affordable and GREAT tasting - and that's coming from someone who was raised on KC BBQ. There isn't a ton of seating, so during peak hours you might be sharing a tabletop with others but it is SO worth it! We had the... More
