Great bbq, at a reasonable price for the area. My wife and I both had the brisket plate and it was great. The meat was very tender, it was pulled style, not sliced like some of the other restaurants service. High recommend eating here. The...only down side was limited seating so go early before the early evening crowds and enjoy.More

We stopped in for bbq and it was great. Cafeteria style; the brisket was great. The sides were good but if you can’t eat onions there aren’t a lot of options.

Everytime I'm in Nashville going to Jack's for barbeque is a must. I've had BBQ all over the world and Jack's by far is the greatest. Beef brisket is outstanding 😋 as is the potato salad and green beans. Highly recommend. Rating... awesome.

Great brisket sandwich and macaroni and cheese! The sweet tea was good too! Plenty of seating upstairs.

We decided to stop in after this was said to be an excellent restaurant while we did a tour of Nashville. We were not impressed AT ALL and it was a total waste of our $28. Meat had a ton of fat on it and...my husband couldn’t eat it. The baked beans and potato salad was mediocre. We left there hungry. Not sure if this is everyone’s experience , maybe at times it’s really good but for us it disappointing.More

Good Q. Not enough seating and no social distancing during COVID. Sloked to allow for SD. Overall we were pleased.

I’m vegetarian and I still ate well! I ordered the vegetable plate with three sides and it was amazing. The sweet potatoes and the banana pudding were off the charts. The staff was also very kind. I would return.
