I'm a Texas gal and I love my BBQ and I was disappointed with this place. I don't get the hype about this place besides it's location on Broadway. Line is out the door. This BBQ is your simple BBQ with the traditional sides of mac n cheese, green beans, bbq beans, etc. Nothing special in my opinion. Only came... More

My friend and I happened to be walking by and decided to take a chance, not realizing their reputation for BBQ. Not a fancy place , but all the better for me! I loved the atmosphere-no pretension. I had the beef brisket and I LOVED it. I could have went back for a second order, but a line out the... More

I had the ribs plate with two sides for 15.99, and I could have shared it with a second person. A varity of barbecue sauce options, and I went with the traditional sweet version.

Very good, wish they had one in Canada, the best beef we have had in a very long time. The place got very busy very quickly so go early.

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.
