I have to say after waiting nearly an hour is was a disappointment. The best word for Jack's to use is AVERAGE. The food was ok not great. The employees were very good but certainly not worth the wait. It seems to be the kind of place that made is reputation years ago and continue to live off that and... More

Freshly made great BBQ food. Order at counter, bring your food to your table and be prepared to enjoy some yummy food. Don't let the long, never ending line scare you away. The line moves fast and it's worth the wait.

Felt like fast food joint...don't get why there's such a fuss. The food was ok but the place is a dive.

Very busy, long line, but the wait was fairly short Great BBQ. Spicy sauce was the best! Sides were not as tasty as the BBQ.

The food is good and so is the variety of food on the menu. Everything I'm had has pleased the taste buds so I keep taking people with me.

I ate here 15 years ago and it still is as flavorful and charming as ever! Loved the variety of sauces to try with my pulled pork sandwich

It is definitely a nice place to have a quick BBQ meal. The lines can be long but do not worry they go fast. Meats are very nicely cooked and tasty. You decide what you want and order, can be a sandwich, a large sandwich or a plate, your choice of sides and drinks. Desserts not particularly exciting, but available.... More

Great food on the cheap! Cafeteria style dining where you order, get your food and choose a place to sit down.

This place had all the signs of a "tourist trap"...location on Broadway, heavy word of mouth, and long lines. We decided, oh what the heck, we wanted to try some Nashville Bar B Que. The line moved very fast and were placing our order in no time. Most of us ordered the pork shoulder sandwich, with the other ordering the... More

We started to eat here about 2:15 pm on a Monday and the line was out the door. We figured it'd be worse later, but we left...toured the Ryman...and came back and there was no line at all! We were pleasantly surprised. The ribs were meaty and the sauces very good. My husband likes baked on sauce better, but that's... More
