I've been here three times and like it very much. Excellent mixed drinks and very good BBQ. I was not blown away by the ribs, but the brisket is probably the best I have ever had and is what will keep me coming back. The...More

A sit-down with a friend was a good chance to try out a new BBQ place, and while the BBQ is undeniably good, it is not nearly good enough to command the prices they want to charge you here. $15 for a brisket sandwich? $7...More

Texas Jacks barbeque was good. Being from Memphis (capital of pork bbq) and KC (capital of beef), the beef ribs and beef brisket were good. We got the meat sampler – others in our group really liked the chicken and sausage. We also got mac...More

Tom Sietsma of the Washington Post recently named Texas Jack's the #1 BBQ in the DC area and now I know why. It is simply the best around, and I've tried quite a few. Had brisket and pulled pork along with a couple of sides....More

I can only speak to the takeout, but if food holds up well in cartons, then it will do just fine on the plate. Texas Jack's ribs are seasoned, and blessedly free of the maroon glop that buries so many innocent racks of ribs. (If...More

Texas Jack's is named after legendary cowboy John B. Omohundro from Virginia. His extensive travels, adventures, and extraordinary commitment to others can be felt in the planks of our communal tables, in the smiles of our friendly staff, and in the taste of our succulent, smoked barbecue.
