Good BBQ

Good BBQ! The sausage was delicious. And the pulled pork was to die for! They have three different kinds of bbq sauce, as well...and they are each tasty in their own way. I would highly recommend stopping by for lunch while in Nashville!

If you want real BBQ, this is the place. Great BBQ and excellent sides, very southern. The place is very causal almost too causal, but that is probably the look they are going for. Right in down town Nashville, stop by before or after visiting one of the many bars around. All food is great so I am not going... More

A lot of places say they have the best BBQ- but this was the best I've had. Granted- the place is small and rustic- but the staff was nice and it was right on the strip.

The atmosphere was what you would expect from an old school BBQ joint. No frills,wooden tables, self serve cafeteria style. But the food just didn't live up to the hype. I had the combo and the pulled pork was very good. But the brisket and chicken were just ok. The sides were not good at all. The sauces were very... More

If you find yourself in Nashville, do yourself a favor and eat at Jacks! The food was great, the prices inexpensive, and the order-at-the-counter style allows for the line to move quick and you will be enjoying your delicious food in no time. Don't be scared away by the line: it moves fast. Additional seating upstairs. The Texas Sausage and... More

Jack's is our go to place before a Pred's game. Cold beer, great barbeque, and fast service. Love the brisket and greens.

There is a good reason there is a line outside the door every day. Jack's has a little bit of history, a perfect location downtown, and really good BBQ. You really can't go wrong with what you order. Don't be put off by the line. It moves fast and you'll be glad you waited.

Easy, fast, and absolutely delicious. Don't let the line out the door dissaude you. It moves quickly and the upstairs seating is usually available.

Very good basic BBQ in downtown Nashville. Best in the Broadway area. Served cafeteria style and reasonably price but excellent food. Also good for take out.

We went here before we went to Roberts for the music next door . The wife and I had never experienced this type of setup before . Cafeteria service and food by the pound . The line moved quick and we were able to get a seat no probs which was amazing considering the line was out the door .... More
