We read the reviews and watched BBQ crawl and thought this place would be so good and it wasn't. We ended up here because the Peg Leg Porker was closed on Sunday and we didn't finish the meal. Long time to get served and then the ribs were grisly and grainy. Theres nothing flash about this place, the decor, the... More

Yes, it is worth waiting in line for twenty minutes! Excellent bar-b-que. Best food on the strip and we would go back.

We loved every bite! Wonderful menu with lots of meat and side options. The food was great, and there was extra seating outside or upstairs.

Everything my family and I ate here was delicious. You order at the counter and then bring the food to any table that is open. There is a variety of food from ribs to brisket to chicken and pulled pork. Lots of sauce options on the side. Great side dishes to your main dish! Definitely go here

Order at the counter, fast and friendly service. Get their early or they may run out of the good stuff. We got their at 9:30 and the brisket was gone. But, don't worry the smoked turkey and pulled pork was just as good. If you sit on the back deck you can here the bands playing/ singing next door!

Being from TX we were anxious to try Jack's highly rated barbecue especially TX brisket. We were not disappointed. Each Pitmaster does brisket his way and it was excellent, in his own way. We also had ribs and pulled pork, which is not really a TX thing. Jack's has five different sauces. I personally loved the mustard sauce with the... More

I like a pronounced smokiness in the BBQ ribs I eat. No where else can compete with Jack's ribs! Sides are wonderful, too; I love the potato salad with its chucks of sweet, crunchy red onion and light mayo dressing!

It's nothing to write home about. My pulled pork was a bit dry and so was my husbands brisket. The coleslaw was vinegar based which I did not like. It's a good place to stop when you are drunk on Broadway.

Casual spot right on Broadway. Ample seating (incl upstairs). Cafeteria style ordering, meat is cut to order on the spot. Many yummy looking sides made it hard to choose! We devoured some brisket, ribs, baked beans, Cole slaw, mac & cheese and green beans. Fantastic. Go there hungry!

Thank Buckeye J
