This place is SO good - they're ALWAYS open! The Customer Service is great and it's super clean. COLESLAW IS THE BEST I'VE EVER HAD.

Stopped in here before a flight from Ft Lauderdale due to the amazing smell from the road and was very surprised! Ordered a 1/2 lb of the pulled pork bbq and a side order of baked beans. Reading other reviews I see complaints of dry pork etc. maybe I went on a good day but I can say the pork... More

I've eaten at Jack's many times over the years, and the food is very good. Usually, I go with the pulled pork, beans, corn and cornbread. The employees are friendly and courteous. The restaurant has been spruced up a bit recently with new interior signs, a soft drink station and a drive-thru. The smokers in the parking lot remain. They're... More

Shireena took our order and was very pleasant and friendly so we are off to a good start. We both had the... More

The meat was a touch dry but whatever, the meal was great. I had the BBQ chicken and fries with coleslaw. Messy but so good. We don't have places like this at home!

Ordered a pound of their Carolina style BBQ pork. Little did they know that I am from South Carolina. Their pork is way too smokey. Carolina BBQ is very subtle with just a hint of smoke. Second, they didnt offer any Carolina mustard based sauce, but rather some spicy tomato sauce. I dont think these guys have ever had Carolina... More

Amazing, tasty feast. Pulled pork, spareribs, chicken, coleslaw, beans and steak fries. (Fries to die for). I don't like this sort of food usually, but this was so tasty and delicious, will definitely go again and remember to take some wet wipes, certainly hand and finger foods. Lush.

This is about as country BBQ as it gets in SE Florida. The food was great and lots of choices. The staff is friendly. Offers dine in or take out. I drive by early morning and saw them smoking the meats. Came back later in the evening for dinner. Choices of sides may be limited the later you come. They... More
