I might sell my soul for a good rack of ribs, but these didn't seem worth having. Instead I went for pulled pork with sides, and I have to say they have a goldmine there because folks never stop coming through the door. I get the impression people think it is "authentic" so they feel the need to like it... More

Friendly people, reasonable prices and the food is awesome. The meat is very tasty, and you do get a plate full of food.

Stopped in for a quick lunch and was blown away with the quality. We spent a week in Tennessee and went to more notable bbq places and this one was (by far) the best we tasted. Loved it. And got our picture taken with Jack... nice southern gentleman.

Stopped at the Charlotte location when driving through Nashville with my dog. Staff was very friendly and welcomed us on the outdoor patio. Brisket, chicken, turkey and pulled pork was good. Loved all the sauces, coleslaw was just ok as was the fruit salad. Outside patio was very nice and inside looked nice too.

I went to the one on Charlotte, just on the other side of the interstate. Always good. I good the 3 meet lunch, Beef Brisket, pulled pork, and sausage. All was very good. My friend got the same, although his brisket was a little too fatty. The sides were good, had creamed corn and beans. The corn bread was a... More

I've been to Jacks in 2007, again this week 9/14. Brisket, smoked 1/2 chicken, all UNBELIEVABLE! DO NOT miss Jacks BBQ when in the area. You'll smell BBQ smoke on yourself all night just to remind you how good it really. Please open one of these in Pittsburgh!

Recently, while attending a conference in Nashville, Jack's catered a get together at Nashville Crossroads. I was very pleased with the food. I wanted to go through the line several times. Everything they brought was delicious! Next time I am in town, I will be back to Jack's!

Great BBQ, nice variety of self-serve sauces, and relaxed atmosphere. Despite the incredibly touristy location, this is authentic BBQ served up hot and fast with fair prices, good portions, and clean seating. The pulled pork was lean but tender and juicy. I had never seen a slaw quite like this one (in vinegar and not creamy) but it was tasty... More

Simply put, this place was recommended by a local as a MUST do and she was right on. Pulled pork shoulder, brisket, and St. Louis style ribs all on one plate......how can you go wrong? There's multiple BBQ sauces to pick from so there's a little something for every palette. This place hasn't been in business since 1976 for no... More
