We are avid bbqers and had high expectations for this restaurant as we had heard many good things about it. Unfortunately, the pulled pork and chicken were both dry and the bread was not fresh. We did enjoy the brisket, mac and cheese, and sweet tea, but expected more from an authentic southern BBQ restaurant .. Definitely not what it... More

Not sure why so many not so good reviews on this place. During our trip to Nashville, we ate here 3 times and had the ribs all those times which came with 2 sides and cornbread. My family and I found the ribs to be very tastey with the meat falling of the bone. They have several different types of... More

Read the reviews before we went, but when we saw the long line, we thought "It can't be that bad". Well let's start with the checkout experience. As soon we got up to order, the man rudely walked away. He finally came back, no apology, nothing. By the time we got ready to pay, that guy left and went back... More

Definitely over priced. I had brisket and a side, hubby had the 3 meat plate and it was almost $30. The mac n cheese was creamy but lacked flavour. The brisket was good, ribs hardly had any meat and chicken fell off the bone but hubby said it was dry. Cornbread was good. Service was less than desirable. Wasn't horrible... More

Worst BBQ we have had in a long time. We had the Tennessee Pork Shoulder plate and the Brisket plate. Both were over cooked and dry. Pork had a funny taste. The 5 different BBQ sauces were lousy. The Mac n Cheese was gritty. Huge line waiting for food. Not worth it!!!

My husband and I stopped in for lunch and really enjoyed our meals here! The beef brisket was some of the best I've had and the sides were delicious too. The sauces all had good flavor but the meat was so good you almost didn't even need the sauce. Nothing fancy about the place but you can tell it's good... More

I shared a brisket plate with my traveling companion, which included about 5 slices of brisket and two sides. This was enough for the two of us as we weren't starving. The brisket was smokey without being charred and our sides of baked beans and mac and cheese were sooo good! Was worried it would be too crowded, so we... More

Jacks has a good bbq chicken, ribs, brisket and pulled pork. Many sides to choose from. Sides seem like they are homemade. Deserts look yummy too! The price for the portion is high! Not family friendly. We spent $35 for lunch on three of us. Go early to avoid long lines backing up out the door. Also, you order in... More
