Outstanding BBQ

Love their brisket, their pork, their BURNT ENDS. Meat is tender and tasty, sauce is excellent and sides are delicious. I highly recommend Phat Jack's to satisfy your BBQ yen.

They make a great BBQ but they don't cook the pulled pork in the sauce, it is added onto the sandwich to order. They make very good ribs and I love their BBQ nachos. You get a large portion for the prices. I enjoy their food and take family and friends all the time. I highly recommend Phat Jack's if... More

Lincoln's best kept BBQ secret! These guys are the REAL DEAL when it comes to BBQ! You will NOT leave hungry or disappointed. If you go in during peak hours, you may want to get your meal to go as I've seen it with the line out the door during the lunch hour and no place to sit! This isn't... More

Saved the best dinner for the last day. Really good food, served quickly and came out hot. Everyone had something different and all liked it.

Every time I travel to Lincoln I tend to eat here more than once in the week. LOVE the burnt-ends and the ribs are good as well. The sides are homemade and you can tell.

You order from the counter and wait for your food - not fancy, but the food comes up very fast. You help yourself to utensils and drink. The BBQ, in all the forms they serve it, is excellent and cooked perfectly (at least for my taste). Sauce is very good - have regular and hot. Sides (beans, potato salad, etc.)... More

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... 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.
