Great BBQ

Very good BBQ in a casual, chow line style setting. Had a great brisket and good sides. Very friendly staff. Was great, quick spot for lunch during stay for conference.

I really have no clue what the hype is about. Maybe it's because I lived in Texas for 8 years and am spoiled on good real bbq? I don't know. To give some credit, the meat wasn't bad, but it just wasn't the best. The sides on the other hand were terrible! My mac and cheese was running and Kraft... More

This was the first time either of us had visited downtown Nashville. At lunch time we noticed the cute sign with pigs in front of Jacks, so decided to go in to try it. We both ordered brisket dinners. Although we felt it was fairly pricey for the amount of food we received, the brisket was deliciously tender and all... More

Really good BBQ on Honky Tonk row in Nashville. Be prepared to wait in line because it's popular with tourists. The BBQ was very good, prices were a little high, but to be expected based on location.

Went for lunch with co-workers today. There was a line to the door, but the wait was not very long at all. I think we waited 5 minutes to the order counter. I had the pork shoulder bbq with mac-n-cheese and cucumber salad. The cornbread was soft and good. They have several bbq sauces to choose from. Overall very good... More

Love this location and I think the food is pretty good. It's an interesting ordering system similar to a chow line style. Also, you better know what you want when you get to the counter, otherwise you'll get a ribbing from those behind the counter (think Soup Nazi -Seinfeld). Plenty of places to sit upstairs and outside as well. Don't... More

We had 2 family packs of meat (chicken and brisket) that included 4 sides (Cole slaw, potato salad, Mac n cheese, baked beans). The meat was above average but not amazing. The potato salad and Mac n cheese were very good. Cole slaw lacked flavor and baked beans were average. Corn bread was hard, dry and not very appetizing. We... More

I think there is probably better, but this is a touristy spot - cleanliness is clean, but not comfortably clean. Good selection of smoked items...

Not at all what I was thinking when we wanted Tennessee BBQ. The line was so long and not worth the wait. Pegleg Porker was 10000 times better.
