wonderful food, great experience

wonderful food, great experience, we had to wait in a line up out the door as this place is so popular, If you don't mind eating off paper plates for the exceptional food then this is the place. Ribs were wonderful. Great ambiance.

The Barbecue is fantastic! The sauce for the Barbecue is the best. They give you soooo much food, I have to take a carryout bag for the rest.

As former Texans, we're picky about BBQ, but Jack's has great food and proved to be a great choice on our one day visit to Nashville. We'll be back.

This restaurant offers barbecue and brisket sandwiches and plates with all the fixings- mac n cheese, green beans, sautéed apples and many more options. It's a cafeteria styled serving line and do it yourself drink line. If you love barbeque, you will love this. No live music downstairs where we were. I don't know if it's available upstairs. Just plain... More

They do meats right here. The ribs were very meaty and had great flavor. The pulled pork was excellent... smokey and cooked perfectly. Sides were good, not great... favorite was the creamed corn. I found the atmosphere just a bit depressing and don't love eating on paper plates, though I know it's kind of traditional. I'm not sure why people... More

A totally brilliant experience. Long queue - out the door- but service was very quick. I hadn't actually realised this was a counter service place till we walked in - not a negative thing but i just didnt know! Tables were at a premium as the upstairs section was closed for a private party. However we managed to snag one... More

this was my first time in Nashville & I thought the BBQ was very good & moist. Had the pork shoulder plate with corn & baked beans. Lots of sides to choose from. Nothing fancy but cool atmosphere. Line was long but goes fast.

The queues were going outside and down the block so we assumed it would be worth waiting for. The portions are small by US standards and although the meats were tender they were a little dry. The sides were average at best. We had ribs, brisket, chicken and smoked Texas sausage. Not really worth the wait.

Best BBQ I have ever had. We got the 3 meat plate so we could try it all. Ribs were amazing - would get this alone if I went back. There was a 15 min wait on a Sunday afternoon 2pm though so it does get busy

I got 3 meat platter with 2 sides for like 13 bucks. Pulled pork, chicken and brisket. I found all the meat was dry and not very good. The portions were quite small as well. The sides were good, macaroni and cheese and apples. The line was long and the person taking the orders were really slow. I think the... More
