Pulled pork delicious, the small sandwich is only snack size, so order a large. Football bar also here.

This is a good staple BBQ spot, reminiscent of good ol' American pit smokin'. For me, what made my last trip spectacular was their Jucy Lucy, an homage to the famous Minnesotan establishment, Matt's, home of this ball of juice and gooey cheese. I went...in without expectations, which I try to do to not cloud my judgement, and this one blew me away. I honestly didn't even talk for the first few bites because the chorus of melting cheese and imported USDA choice beef had me left without words. Try it. This burger has become one of my top 3 favorite burgers in Saigon, easily (I won't name the other two here).More

I visited this place for dinner one evening. I had been there a couple of days before for a beer and I had found the place quite interesting. The restaurant/pub is very American. I ordered spare ribs and the portion that arrived was quite large....However I found the taste a bit special, and not quite up to my expections for a spare rib. The staff was very servicdeminded. However the price was on the high side. Anyway I finished the meal and went back to my hotel and went to bed. However during the night I woke up and had to go to the toilet for womitting and I had that foul tast in my mouth from the spare rib. I will not visit this place for eating in the future.More

Thanks for the review.... we are deeply remorseful for what happened to you upon your visit. Without proper testing its hard to conclude that your illness came for the ribs that you consumed. Regardless we are doing checks daily as usual for cleaning and sanitary...More

Maybe I was expected too much. Smoked rib was a little bit dry to me. Service was okay. Staffs were friendly and nice.

Highly Recommend this place. I visited twice during a week's stay in HCMC. The food is VERY VERY good, but I have to give them a 5 star review for stocking Dr Pepper in Asia. It is a rare thing to find in SEA, so...I appreciate getting some Dr Peps here! The pulled pork sandwich is amazing and the bbq and mustard sauces they have here are very high quality. Prices are also good for the quality you are receiving. If you want American BBQ, this is a great spot to go.More

Hi Tim ! Thanks for the review!

We went twice to Jake’s during our stay and it was the best. We had been having Vietnamese for a couple of weeks if not longer so it was nice to have a change - but the food it totally unbelievable. Hence we went twice....We tried a lot - nachos, boneless bites, club sandwich, mac and cheese, fried gerkins, pulled pork sandwich, ribs...brownie and waffle (and a milkshake too)! We loved it - the service was great, the food was really well done and I think others have mentioned already that the bacon was amazing! Proper bacon. Really really recommend you go to Jake’s if you get a chance. Also - you can ask to takeaway anything you don’t finish so a couple of sandwiches came back with us for later... yum yum!More

The food was fantastic, we have been in Vietnam for over 2 weeks and this was the first time we had tried proper bacon! The restaurant has a really chilled out vide with a few ice hockey jerseys decorated on the wall. There is also...2 huge plasma TV’s showing sports. The prices are really fair for such quality food in the centre of district nose. The restaurant was fully air conditioned, so on those long hot days in HCM it’s nice to walk into a cool restaurant. Would definitely recommend to everyone and I don’t think there’s better barbecue food in Vietnam let Alison HCM!More
