Saw the line was smaller than usual, so we jumped in. Still slow wait to order food cafeteria style. Eating areas were dirty and the whole place was rundown. Food ok. Rippys across the street was better.

My husband and I stopped in for lunch at Jack's and were very glad we did! We each had the pulled pork plate with 2 sides of beans and mac -n -cheese. The Pork was delicious, tender and flavorful almost hated to put sauce on it! The bbq beans were rich and flavorful. The staff was very helpful and friendly.... More

Overall the bbq was not bad and it was nice to have bbq on Broadway in Nashville. I had the 3 meat plate with BBQ brisket ribs and pork shoulder. Cole slaw was different - way different - than I'm used to.

Jack's has a lot to compete with on Broadway, but the food speaks for itself. No frills in terms of decor (very eclectic), wooden tables, line up to place your order where they are cooking, find a small table and ENJOY! Ribs, chicken, brisket all tender, nicely-not-overly smoked, and a choice of sides ranging from creamed corn to cinnamon apples... More

Great bar-b-q, smoked on site. You queue for your food and fight for a table, but thats part of the charm. Far better to eat here than most of the bars on Broadway. A good experience.

If you like brisket, go nowhere but Jack's. Seriously. I've had brisket in Texas, Tennessee, the Carolina's and beyond. Jack's does it right. You don't need a knife, only a fork. Smoky, bursting with flavor, tender as butter, Jack's brisket is darn near perfect. Back the platter up with baked beans, coleslaw, and/or various other sides and you have yourself... More

OK so the ambience was lacking but it's all about the food. You have to try the smoked turkey, pulled pork, and ribs. Brisket was still cooking but looked really good.

We had brisket and ribs, which were both very good. Loved the smoke in their meet and their corn bread and baked beans were also very very good!
