My husband and I shared the sampler combo platter, $16, chopped pork scraps, very good smoked brisket, and 3 little St. Louis ribs,cooked apples and mustard potato salad. Disappointed with the service. No one looked me in the eyes and all 3 of the people behind the counter had to be at the end of a shift and wanting to... More

I have eaten at Jacks maybe 10 times and have never been disappointed. The brisket is amazing--the pulled pork melts in your mouth and the sauces are the best around. You will always find a line to get in--which is always a good sign that the food is amazing. They move through the line pretty steadily. We got there around... More

Great place for takeaway....few tables inside. The spicy sauce IS hot...be careful with it. If you are there for lunch, try to order before 11:15am...lines get quite long after 11:15am.

We wanted to try Jack's based on the reviews, and we weren't disappointed. We did not encounter any crowds, we walked in and waited just a few minutes before we placed our order. This was actually a good thing because it gave us the opportunity to look over the menu. The food was very good, and prices more than reasonable,... More

Great barbecue, reasonably priced in a no-frills setting. Step up to the counter, order, pay and enjoy. At one point the line may be out the door. 20 minutes later, no line at all.

On the advice of a friend we were directed to the best ribs around. We came in to this little place right in the center of Broadway. My friend was right, they had the pulled pork and it was amazing, I had the ribs. I don't like sticky things or anything for that matter on my fingers, I licked the... More

Very good bbq in a tourist location. So the lines are long and the building is small but the line moves fast. I love the bbq and the atmosphere. Great place to mingle with the tourist that visit Nashville.

I was a bit skeptical about eating right in the tourist town, but it was great. We shared ribs, brisket and pulled pork and all were great. Especially loved the corn bread mmmm mmmmm. Sure it's not fine dining but the food made up for it all. Go eat!

Just spent a weekend in Nashville and got to eat lunch at Jack's BBQ. The pulled pork is very excellent and the brisket is good but fatty. Did not like the corn bread. If you see a line and no seating on 1st floor, no problem, there are seats upstairs. There's no table service; you order your food, find a... More
