Jordan's has good food and friendly staff. Sometimes the BBQ has been overcooked or dry for us, so I would not say it's perfect or crave worthy. The prices are reasonable, and the atmosphere is laid back and very country style. I always love the smell of BBQ when I walk in the door.

Not North Carolina BBQ, but pretty darn good! I personally think it is very good, if you like smokey. Sauce and slaw is good too. Has been in business for years and has been consistently good and reasonably priced.

Jordan's is always great. The pulled pork barbeque is dry, you add the sauce as you like. Also a favorite is the barbeque stuffed baked potato. We enjoy eating there and also picking it up and taking it home, buy by the pound. Service is always great!

Service was fast and friendly. Prices reasonable. Hot slaw and bbq sauces good. Portions generous. Meat was dry and disappointing.

This is a long standing local restaurant in Cleveland. It is a great little place to grab some barbecue. The barbecue is a little too dry and smoky for my taste, but a lot of locals love it so it is definitely worth a try.

Good menu selection but the smoke-flavoring was over powering. It's not what i consider to be the best BBQ in the area by any stretch. Cleveland lacks a really good mom and pop BBQ joint, something Jordan's could be, but they average at best.

TN BBQ is not like Texas so go for the pulled pork. Pretty good, the Banana pudding is excellent. A must have every time we go to Cleveland.

Good bbq-would visit again & recommend to anyone looking for such. Ribs were big & meaty & nearly fall off the bone but with enough texture to make enjoyable, pulled pork moist & tender. Smoke flavor a little strong but not overpowering...hey...it's bbq. Fried green beans (new for me) were tasty. Good service (none of the lack of attentativeness as... More

I visited on a business trip with about 16 diners. I thought they did well getting our orders and served the food in a reasonable amount of time. The restaurant was full of other customers as well. I had a combo platter of ribs and pork. I liked the ribs better than the pork which was just okay. Their hot... More

I don't have anything positive to say about this place. My family and I went here shortly after moving here and were hugely disappointed by the bbq Jordan's puts out. We shared a variety of different foods here as we do anytime we try a new place, but bbq is a little easier to do this with because you can... More
