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!!!

Glad we stopped here to check out the BBQ before hitting bars/honky tonks. Great food!! Able to try out a bunch of different sauces too.

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.

We went to Jack's not once, but twice! All my brother wanted was good bbq and boy did we find it! It reminded me of my favorite bbq place in Clemson, SC, so I was a happy camper. It's not fine dining, so leave that at home. This is down home, delicious bbq. You get in line, you watch as... More

Since it's a Nashville icon, I was really hoping it would be better. This would be the third or fourth time we have taken out of town visitors there. I had the pulled pork sandwich because I wasn't that hungry. It was ok, just ok, the meat is kept in a silver warmer tray, the same place as the hot... More

Pork shoulder, ribs, brisket, green beans, baked beans, mac & cheese, all of this very good. The ribs were the best. The sides don't look that great in the serving pans, but they were all very good. The sauces, though they were few, were complimentary to the meat. Highly recommend this place.

Late lunch here...very crowded.... Brisket sandwich was good...fairly tender. Served Cafeteria style, you are waited on pretty quickly.... Multiple dining rooms!
