Great food!! The line was a little long and slow but it as worth it. My only negative to say was that they ran out of cornbread and were offering a slice of white bread instead. total bummer. They should know that they are going to be busy and have been prepared.

Visited the night of the Nashville Holiday Parade. The line was long, but the food was worth the wait. Brisket was perfectly seasoned and smoked. Nice variety of sauces. I love spicy food and was not disappointed in the sauces that had a bit of a kick to them. We sat upstairs. The booth benches were a bit worn, but... More

On my trip to Nashville with my wife (for her Mary Kay Leadership Conference) we wanted to go to the best bbq place in Nashville, TN. Several people recommenmded Jack's BBQ. We went in and I was expecting a spruced up place not a historical institution hole-in-the-wall. Well, going past the busyness of the restaurant we ordered the brisket sandwich,... More

The food had really good taste, we picked the plate with the choice of 3 meets, the ribs, pulled pork and sausage, all really good and their bbq sauce too, but the reason for a 4 star are the prices for the amount of food are a little bit high, and the staff was not friendly at all!!!

We couldn't decide where to eat on the strip I sure am glad we chose this place. Great big portions and freshly made. They cut it right infront of you. I tried all of the BBQ but the tennesee vinegar base was by far my favorite. We will definitely be back and I will be trying to order this sauce... More

Couldn't get enough of the Kansas City sauce so we bought four jars. Meat so tender and flavorful. Tried three times to get in - busy place but worth the wait. Don't miss this place. You will have a hard time deciding what to eat so you may have to go twice to try all you want so go early... More

One of the best BBQ eats I've had in awhile......Downtown Broadway in Nashville (excellent location for it). I got the brisket plate. It's to die for. The sauces to me are some of the best too. Mac N Cheese was also yummy. I'm glad we stopped for lunch! If you want BBQ try this place out. Make sure to get... More

I stopped at Jack's for dinner when visiting Broadway for the first time and was very impressed! The pork shoulder and the sides were excellent. I will definitely return. There is not a lot of seating downstairs and unfortunately the upstairs was reserved for a large party when I visited.
