I’m still trying to figure out how this place gets the good reviews it does. Are people actually eating here? The food was so bland, it can’t be described as bar-b-que. Just because you slap sauce on meat, does not mean it’s bar-b-que. The meat was not tender, it had more in common with budget buffets than it did a... More

Located in the middle of Broadway, this is good for a quick bite to eat as it is cafeteria style serving. Prices are good, and the mac n' cheese plus dipping sauces make up for it not being a sit down service. Great people watching!

We had a one night stop in Nashville and decided to try some Tennessee Bar-B-Que. I AM A FAN! Everything was delicious! I tried the sausage, brisket, and pork shoulder. The regular bar-b-que sauce was good, but my favorite was the sweet bar-b-que sauce. The other reviews were spot on with the delicious mac and cheese. Their beans were yummy... More

Great place to grab a bite whilst exploring broad street. The brisket and smoke Texas sausage were lovely! 👌

The plethora of sauces and the taste is 10*! Must try their Brisket and Turkey platter. Tip: Ask them to butter both sides of a texas toast 😉

Jack's has the best smoked chicken. But if you are feeling lots of homemade vegetables this is the place. Top this all off with the sweet tea and that's a phenomenal Sunday meal.

Nice variety of foods and very affordable. This place is a must while you are in Nashville. The combo platter gives you a little bit of everything.

Here in Nashville during New Years, and a friend told us to come to Jack's for some Barbecue. At first we get here and had to order at the counter so was a little leary. All I can say was amazing. The ribs were delicious and so was the briscuit. The sides were also delicious. The different BBQ sauces were... More

First things first: If you're looking for a venue with a waiter, cute interior, and plated service, then this is not the BBQ place for you. However, the food was great! The meat was being freshly chopped in front of you, and the sides were hot and cooked just right. Yes, it is served cafeteria style, but the taste is... More
