Great food, long wait

The food was great. It is definitely worth the 45 minute wait. I just wish they had the corn bread in stock. Lots of places to sit up stairs. Must try the ribs

Enjoyed the family meal that was well priced and included plenty of food. The BBQ was delicious and served quickly and hot.

Jack's is some good BBQ. It is set up like fastfood where you order at the counter. Get there early because once they sell out of their smoked meats, they are done! Yummy!

Noticed the long line on our first visit to Nashville and later heard this was the best BBQ so decided to take the time this visit to stand in line. On our second attempt at 2pm the line looked shorter with only 5 customers outside the door(at least 20 could be in line inside). We still waited over 30 minutes... More

Good value BBQ meal in lively surroundings, there always seems to be a queue outside but it is worth standing in line. We had the 3 meat platter and beers which were good value for money.

We went to jacks a few years ago. It was good then. We went again a couple years ago and not good at all. We are now in Nashville again and decided to try it again and were very, very disappointed. The food was cold and did not taste good at all. My wife has the chicken, ribs and sausage.... More

Based on the line outside, I expected some great BBQ, but I was disappointed. Like many BBQ joints, the restaurant has counter service. Food is served on paper plates and seating is on rough wooden tables. That's fine with me if the BBQ is good, but the food disappointed. I had the combo platter with brisket, ribs and chicken. The...

We arrived in Nashville shortly before noon, dropped our bags at the hotel and headed to find some BBQ. To maximize our time we thought we'd check out Broadway. Great plan! (Mental pat on back) Jack's is a line up to order, ready made place with seating downstairs, upstairs and on a patio. We chatted with the friendly gentleman behind... More
