Finger-licking BBQ!

Came here with friends during one of our work travels after getting high recommendations by one of the Johnny Cash Museum attendants. Boy! Were we glad we took his advise! Their brisket was so tender and their pork barbecue was so good. Their sauces are a must-try too! Yummy!

Think subway- but with BBQ. You pick your meat, then your dish is handed off to someone else who puts your sides on the plate along side the meat. Then you garnish with whatever sauces you'd like. The beef brisket was the BEST beef I've ever had in my life!

Pulled pork sandwiches were great, but the smoked turkey was even better! Yum! Great fast food option on Broadway.

Multiple people told us to go here and we were not disappointed. The sides and meat were all good. Everything is served cafeteria style so think about what you want before you get there. I really liked their Kansas City Sauce but I like things mild.

Try to get there every trip to Nashville. The Bar-B-Que is great, reasonable prices for downtown. My only issue is that their portion size is very large. Smile!

Love this place. I live across the street from the Charlotte location and my kids ask me to stop there every other day.

We ate a Jack's while in Nashville for the NHL All Star Game. It was highly recommended by many locals and is wasn't disappointing. Great service and the food was excellent.

At the 2016 #NHLAllStar Game, the line was out the door for Jack's but I convinced my wife to wait with me and... YUMMY! What wasn't good? #GKG!

I read about Jack's BBQ on Yelp and it didn't disappoint. There's usually a small line which you must stand in to get to the cafeteria style/counter service. It's worth the wait (and a sign of good food!) Brisket was flavorful and pulled pork was fantastic. It's directly behind the Ryman Auditorium and on Broadway so if you sit outside... More

Food was good, portions a little small for the price. Had white barbecue sauce before at another place it was unbelievable. This white barbecue sauce was mediocre at best. Nothing special.
