Was here on vacation looking for some good bbq but not fromyour typical chain restaurants. This place didn't disappoint. Got the pulled pork and it was mouth watering good. Actually i couldn't finish it all and bought a cooler just to be able to take it home.

We used to live in Virginia Beach and ate at Jake's at least once a month. During this visit we were 'tourists' visiting old friends and territory. We bought a Groupon good for the Family Feast. WOW! It is a bit of everything and very generous portions. The dry rub wings are the BEST wings my husband and I have... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Fast and friendly service. Food was hot and cooked correctly. Fries are fresh sliced on premises and out of this world.

I had the pulled pork and brisket 2 meet platter. Pork was OK but brisket a little tough. Had hush puppys and fried okra and I would guess they both were not made fresh.

Went here for lunch at the weekend and was greeted with a mouthwatering smokey BBQ smell! The ribs were delicious as were the baked beans! I'd say if you're looking for a casual BBQ meal you can't go wrong here.

Jake’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que was recommended by a friend for lunch. Unfortunately, I was under impressed with the quality of food and service. I ordered the Sliced Beef Brisket Lunch Special with Hush Puppies and Fried Okra. I thought the brisket was ok, but everything was under seasoned. The prices were reasonable, but I really wished the quality was better. My... More
