It seems every time I have ordered from Jakes, my menu was out of date, regarding the prices. I remember when SuSu owned Jakes, you got nice sized sides in pint containers. She knew me by voice, and I always found a surprise of extra cornbread, or some other goodie that I did not ask for. She made frequent customers... More

I'm a Brooklyn native and have been going to Jake's for many years. I remember when Jake's BBQ was almost alone on Colombia St, at the end of the dark period of Red Hook. This was a great reason to come down to the neighborhood and have some great BBQ when it was a scarce commodity in Brooklyn. I remember... More

We got delivery sent right to the hotel. Ordered the pork, chops mac and cheese and sweet potato fries for me. Ribs, baked beans and mac and cheese for my husband. The sweet potato fries were slightly under done but the other items more than made up for it. The chops were perfectly cooked, the corn bread delicious. My husband... More
