If you like Cootie's, you will like Jack's. Same owners. Similar but different menu. Very casual. Good service. Great prices. Fairly good food. I like it for a casual, inexpensive meal.

Jack's is a great place to hang out. The décor is eclectic, which I find appealing. The bar staff is nice and they have a secret beer club that you can be part of if you inquire. They also make decent cocktails and have drink specials many nights of the week. I enjoy the turkey wrap with jezebel sauce, but... More

We like the food here. Sometimes we have better service than others but that can happen anywhere depending on the rush. Our food always comes out hot and fresh and we do not always eat the same thing. Sometimes we eat at the bar so we can watch a ballgame. Always get great service there! Love the atmosphere and décor.

I ate here with coworkers - used to love Cootie brown's (former sister restaurant - which has gotten equally horrible) and was extremely let down. The service was slow and poor and I actually had to help the cashier even out my tip (the actual addition). The menu is like something a 4 year old devised and tries to hack... More

I have not been to Jacks in a while, well, because I have never enjoyed it. They have been advertising Bang Bang Shrimp...so I went and tried. Not bad, but blah. Coconut shrimp are and appetizer...by themselves. Not in a taco with too much vinegar red cabbage mix. The bang bang sauce was bland. It came with refried beans that... More

Jacks is our "go to" when no one can agree where to eat in JC. It's a place where everyone can find something they love. I am a huge fan of the Hawaiian chicken plate with a baked sweet potato!! They are amazing!!! You can a buffalo burger it the craving hits you and turkey burgers for those watching the... More

I'm still pretty new to Johnson City and wanted to try something different and decided to try out Jack's. I ended up trying one of the quesadilla's and was pleasantly surprised. It's like a combination between a pizza and a quesadilla. It wasn't super fancy but loaded with toppings on top and inside. I thought it tasted great and it... More

Great place to pick up a good dinner. Very affordable with a unique menu. Beware of buying the nachos as an appetizer! My wife and I could have easily made a meal out of just the nachos! Will be back soon...

Jack's has a great combination of menu, service & atmosphere that keeps us coming back for tasty food in a friendly & casual setting. Since this is local for us, we eat here often, mostly at the bar, & have never had a bad bite or poor service. The selection of draft beers is extensive, varied & very cold. My... More
