Wow, was this a disappointment. For some reason Nashviillians seems to have an aversion to pronounced smoke flavor in BBQ so it must appeal to the locals (and I'm a local). However, in my opinion, if you want good BBQ you should avoid Jack's. They clearly do smoke their meats but the flavor is quite light and the fact that... More

Wanted to try local barbecue food while visiting downtown for music. Never had smoked chicken, was good, like the ribs better. Price was great, service quick with a relaxed environment. Located on Broadway the main music street in downtown makes a good visit after a few brews.

I ordered the beef plate, my husband ordered the sausage plate; both were delicious! A good variety of sides too. The price was reasonable and the service was friendly. Loved the variety of sauces available. Will definitely eat there again!

Great local real deal Bar-B-Que with all of the offerings available. Easy access right off Broadway in the heart of Nashville. A Nashville favorite and "classic".

We were so impressed with their knowledge of celiac and the depths they went to to make sure I was safe eating there. Switched gloves, switched cutting boards, got out a fresh meat plate, just awesome!!!

Very disappointed, very expensive too. Being in The meat business for 36 years I know the difference between boneless beef ribs and a brisket, the brisket I ordered was a piece of boneless beef short rib from the Chuck, It even taste like a chuck roast, it was smoked but still it was not brisket. The sides are out of... More

I ordered a "plate" because I wanted some veggies. I expected some southern greens, okra, creamed spinach... something like that. The "veggies: were really sides...mac and cheese, overcooked green beans, slaw, cornbread. The cucumbers offered were good. The BBQ was good, but the place is tired and it is self serve. Sauces were nothing special.There are better options.

Right next door to Robert's Western World in the heart of Music City!! Stop in early or wait in line because it gets packed!
