Good tasting food and plenty of it.

Our party of three decided to try out Jordan's on our stop in Cleveland. It seemed to be a little bit off the beaten path for tourist but it was worth the find. We walked in all very hungry after watching a baseball game at Lee University. Two of us ordered the Pulled Pork Dinners and one ordered... read more

In Tennessee for the Awakening conference @ OCI/PerryStone ate here, the food was almost as good as Jeremy Adkinson's, my husband But Jordan's came pretty darn close. Enjoyed food & the staff, they all treated us great. Noticed also they worked together, checking on each others tables. God bless you all

Jordan's BBQ is a well-established barbecue restaurant with excellent tender meats and great sauces, for a cold day try their red beans and rice or a nice piping hot bowl of chili. the desserts are homemade. the staff are always courteous and attentive. With a great location with easy access.

The best bar-b-q joint in town. Great flavor, lean meat, and tasty sauce options. The desserts are always good and fresh. We've been coming here for years and have always been greeted with smiling faces, received prompt service, and had a good time and experience. Love the whole crew.

We always enjoy our food when we eat at Jordan's. The biggest complaint is the service. We have never eaten there and had good service. I can understand if they are extra busy, but when waitresses are just standing around chatting rather than refilling drinks and making sure all is good, then there is no excuse. Recommend for take out... More

Average food with very limited menu. Decent service but unfriendly owner. Eaten here several times but the atmosphere & food quality could be better

I have been to this restaurant several times and the bar-b-q is the best. Not too smokey, not tough, not fat, just great taste. Their pies are great as well. No little slice either, we are talking huge slabs of pie. Save lots of room for it. Have tried other bar-b-q places in Cleveland and always go back to Jordan's.

I have been going to Jordan's since I was probably 7 or 8. They have a good variety and their BBQ is so good

We have had Jordan's catered to our workplace several times. A lot of people pass on it because it is way too smokey. Nothing like burping smoke for a couple of hours. Now the beans and potato salad are really good ! Smoked pulled pork? Sorry, have to pass.

Real smoked BBQ pulled pork. I've had lunch here several times over the last several years and keep coming back. It's a bit out of the way but well worth the trip getting there. The staff are great - warm & friendly and don't forget to ask for a sweet tea to go.
