Good Brisket

Enjoyed the beef brisket. It was very tender and they offer so many sides to choose from. Very friendly staff. The 911 sauce is not that hot.

There was a huge queue when we arrived which is usually a good sign. The food was good but not exceptional. I had the beef brisket with beans and slaw and very much enjoyed the meal. It's kinda like fast food - all cutlery is plastic and you get your meal from the counter. It was all very tasty though... More

We saw a line. That usually is a sign of good food! It"s a southern style bar b q. joint, plain and simple. It's cafeteria style, and you will stand in line for about 10-15 minutes before you are served. I had pulled pork with sides of cole slaw and corn. My wife had beef with cole slaw. We loved... More

Our tour guide recommend this place for BQ. It was outstanding. Very small place and place order yourself. I had the smoked turkey and hubby had the pork. Lots of choices for the sauce and sides. Delicious.

We tried the pork shoulder sandwich along with the slice turkey and sausage. They were all fabulous. The green beans were like grandma used to make. Cole Slaw was just OK, but I like mine sweeter. Serve yourself soft drinks. Get there early for lunch or plan on standing in line. By 11:45 the line was out the door on... More

The BBQ is not good at all. The staff behind counter were rude and unfriendly. Don't eat here. GO to Peg Leg Porkers it's the best in TN

Went because a friend recommended, line was out the door, went threw pretty quickly. I had the pork shoulder combo, mac cheese & slaw. My husband had 3 meat combo. Slaw was flavorless, meat was dry. For 35$ wish we went somewhere else on the strip.

The beef brisket was excellent. The pork was also very good. Three different kinds of sauces. Relaxing atmosphere.

Jack's BBQ is a no fuss, no wait type of place! Its almost like a saloon type BBQ house I went to in Texas without the waitstaff. Its cafeteria type service with really good food but a tad on the high side for the amount of food they serve. Their location on Broadway is a gem so they can afford... More
