“Love Jakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

I think their chili is one of the best around. The chocolate cake is a must have. I also like their salad and jalapeno cornbread.

“come early!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

the food is great, no matter what you order. My fav is the deep pit sandwich with BBQ sause. The chocolate cake is the BEST. But the parking lot is small, so go before 11:30 or after 1:00 for easy access

“Great BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

My wife loves this place. She is always saying, "Let's go to Jakes". Parking can be tough, as is seating, by well worth the potential hazzle.
