Wow, hard to beat these ribs. The place is kind of grungy and basic. We ate upstairs because the downstairs was full. You get your food in a cafeteria style line and go find a place to sit. Right in downtown so it is always busy.

you order from the counter and get your food, the Brisket sandwiches were very tender and delicious, the mac and cheese was also good, the place was packed, had to wait in line for 30 minutes but worth the wait, very reasonably priced

Had lunch about 11:30 after we had been touring downtown for a couple of hours. Jack's had good reviews and it was right across the street. Great place for an inexpensive BBQ lunch.

We got a tip that jacks was the place to check out for some good bbq. After eating at several other bbq places Jacks comes out short. The food got served fast and the employees were nice, but the food just isnt good enough.

After walking around downtown, we headed to Jack's to eat. It was about 2:30 so we didn't expect it to be busy. We were wrong! A line outside waiting. We knew we had made a good choice. What we did not know was how good! It was EXCELLENT!!! The line moved quickly. Service was awesome! Food was outta this world!!... More

Delicious food in a rustic setting near all of the action on Broadway. A Nashville classic with consistently delicious BBQ.

We had a great meal at Jacks, lots of atmosphere fun place! The triple plate gives you a taste of 3 choices of meat, we had the brisket, pulled pork & ribs. Eat upstairs for lots more room.

If you know your BBQ then you probably already know about Jack's, if not and you are in the mood for some finger licking sticky dead animals then this is the place to go on the main drag! Sits right in the heart of the busy strip of honky tonks in Nashville and you can expect a line but it... More

I guess we are just spoiled by the BBQ our Uncle makes. We had the 3 meat platter with 2 sides. The wife like the pulled pork the best but I though the Texas sausage was better. It's decent food but I have had better. Good luck!
