No frills, great food.

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

Contrary to an earlier review, Phat Jack's is still in business and serving great BBQ. The restaurant is at 11th & Cornhusker where they serve perfectly prepared ribs, sandwiches, and assorted sides. If it's great BBQ you crave, head to Phat Jack's.

This place is nice and clean with a friendly staff. Just the smell of the food when you walk is awesome and it gets better when you get your food. We have eaten here several times and will eat here many more times. Well worth trying out if you have never had food from here.

I had lunch here during a business trip and had the lunch special of beef and pork sandwich with one side and one drink. The service was quick and atmosphere OK, with TV on and fair amount of people. I chose to eat here based on other Tripadvisor reviews. The beef was OK at best, the pork better. Overall, the... More

Finally after trying many restaurants I have found a BBQ restaurant that is up to my standards. I smoke BBQ in my own stick burner smoker so it has been hard to find a place that meets my expectations.

The burnt ends were extremely fatty. It might have just been my order because the order on the table next to ours looked more meaty. The brisket had a nice smoke ring and a good flavor. I found the cornbread very tasty. The service was quick and friendly. It filled up quickly.
