I think my title says it all. Great portions and some tremendous BBQ. I had brisket that was about as tender as I ever had. Rivals some places down south I have been to. A hot link spicy sausage that was amazing. Spicy enough but full of flavor and juicy. But the St. Louis Ribs were something to behold. Slow... More

Amazing BBQ and some surprises (try the meatballs). The Brussels Sprouts are great, and the Mac & cheese stuffed meatloaf is also. Oh almost forgot! The ranch beans are to die for!

JS Barbecue is probably the best barbecue in the area. We always have the burnt ends, pulled pork, or brisket sandwich. This time we had the burnt ends and brisket, both were excellent. The sauces they offer at the table are good too, the diablo is my favorite. The fries, sweet potato fries are very good, but sides like the... More

Went to try it during restaurant week and loved it. There were 4 of us so we tasted lots and enjoyed all. Apps included lamb chops (our least favorite of the night), fried cauliflower, and pork belly bites, all delectable. The Ribeye steak was so tender, the ribs delicious, I had a sampler of three meats that were amazing. Go... More

My husband ordered babyback ribs and was very disappointed. He was served the narrow end of the ribs and they were very dry. My niece ordered baby back ribs but they brought her St. Louis ribs instead! She was pleased with the way they tasted though. I will say that the service was very good!

We are locals and visit Jersey Shore BBQ at least every other month. Food is consistently delicious. Our favorites include Jersey Shore's meatballs, wings, sausage sampler, The Steve, The Longhorn and Cowboy Dip sandwiches. Homemade sauces are amazing! Service is usually good to very good, but last night we had a "new" waitress who ignored us much of the time.... More

Casual restaurant off the main street, behind local brewery. Plentiful portions. BBQ App was 3 ribs of St. Louis ribs and 3 of baby back ribs. Tasty, plenty, more than enough, could be an entree. Large sliced brisket sandwich and sides (2 sides/$2 - very reasonable). also good. Coleslaw was excellent, fresh, cold. French Fries were zesty. This is barbecue... More

I had the two meat barbecue, with cole slaw and sweet potato fries. So good I could not stop. Finally packed up what I could not finish and couldn't wait for lunch the next day. Great little BYOP place. Excellent food.

My husband enjoyed a nice quiet lunch here yesterday. Good atmosphere (lots of interesting stuff on the walls!), very gracious server, and dependably delicious barbeque. Pulled pork, cole slaw, and mac&cheese were awesome!
