Long wait but tasty food.

Pork shoulder was very well prepared, the right blend of smokey flavor. My husband had the ribs. They are bit heavy handed with the rub so I thought they were a bit salty, but my husband liked it very much. Cornbread was very good too. Really liked all of the sauce selections.

Went to Jacks with a family group of 10, including 2 vegetarians. A local suggested that we not go to the one closest to downtown so that we could easily find parking and seating. GREAT ADVICE! We went to the Charlotte Ave location and were easily able to get a large table and no wait. I had the ribs and... More

Stopped for lunch and had to wait in line for a while, but it is well worth it! The beef brisket plate was delicious and the BBQ sauces were very good. Along with your sides you get corn bread. It was surprising that they do not have draft beer or local beers in bottles. You order at the counter and... More

We recently ate at Jack's in their downtown location on Broadway in Nashville. The ribs were fantastic. I loved that you could add more sauce with three to try. I loved the smoky and tangy sauce, but all were fine. The setting almost made you feel you were on an inside picnic and our service was fast. Great creamed corn,... More

Had to wait in line for a while but it was worth it. Great meat and sides. Not fancy but you get a good meal for a good price.

If you're checking out The District in Nashville, don't miss Jack's. And don't be put off by the line out front. This place is cafeteria style, so the line moves quickly, you get your food, and you're on your way. If the weather is nice, go sit upstairs on the porch and listen to the music wafting through the air.... More

Being from Georgia, I love good BBQ! Jack's surely did not disappoint! It's a casual eatery with all the meat options and the good ole sides. What I loved most about this place was the choices of BBQ sauces. They had Kansas City, white sauce, Tennessee sauce, and Texas sauce. You can go up and sample them all. If you... More

We've eaten at Jack's on our last 2 trips to Nashville. Consistently good food and good service. The pork and the brisket are both very good. Sides are good and don't forget chocolate chess pie! For a yummy bbq meal, this is the place.
