Ribs and pulled pork sandwich were pretty good. Service was quick and cheerful. Atmosphere homey and relaxed. Don't miss the Miss Piggy pie!

“There is no bad BBQ but.......”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

There is good BBQ, Great BBQ, and Blow your socks off BBQ. Grumpy Jakes is good BBQ. The meats we had, pork, chicken & brisket were tender, but all was chopped and all tasted the same. There was no smoke flavor to my palate in any of it. They seem to rely on the BBQ sauce to impart a smoke flavor. The sauce was very tasty and the sweet potato fries were good too. Unfortunately the waitress standing nearby cleaning her finger nails with a toothpick was less than appetizing. Thank God she wasn't our waitress.... We won't be back.
