Barbecue here was delicious and tender. Baked beans were good. Slaw was vinegar-based. The SAUCE ... if you don't like mustard, you will not enjoy Jacks unless you stop at the grocery store and pick up the kind of SAUCE you like, as Jacks only offers a mustardy sauce and nothing else. The cue is great, but the SAUCE may... More

Driven passed this "Smokehouse" a few times without spotting it early enough to stop, so we made a deliberate journey to try this "recommended" BBQ. Of course we made the mistake of turning up on the only day it was closed. N.B. they don't open Sundays. Second time lucky. We came back and discovered, the reason for my title -... More

Very good brisket, nice and tender with smooth flavor. Baked beans are great and cole slaw is not sweet and not strong vinegar taste. Worth the stop.

The brisket was cut with the grain!! Any cook who does this for a living should know. My husband has the brisket and I had pork sandwich. Not up to our standards - which r not that high! Lol. We live the hole in the walls! The barbecue sauce was yellow- green. Also as I looked out the windows to... More

I have been stopping here since the 1960s. We like the pork sandwiches with mild sauce. They are a little smaller than they use to be but still good. Worth a stop in my opinion.

Good BBQ, but the building is a bit of a dive. Jack Benny would be disappointed in the upkeep of his restaurant , but the BBQ is still good. I'd recommend getting it to go.

Finally stopped into this little place. Had the mixed plate. All the meat was tender but the chicken and beef were the best. We had a side of ribs that were just ok. Very tender but not allot of flavor. The beans and potato salad were very good. For the price, not sure that we will return. A little pricey.

Thank Tamara W
