Finding good barbecue on my travels is one of life's pleasures. Jinx makes the best hands down. Served on a lightly grilled white bread with bit of his sauce added is hard to beat. Yes, it is a hole in the wall and not the...More

From the perspective of someone who has only known Memphis/Delta-style barbecue growing up, Jinx's is one of the few, if not only, places around Charlottesville to get legitimate pulled pork and ribs. In my experience, some of the best barbecue is found in "hole-in-the wall"...More

If you can put up with Jinx's unreliability to be open during posted hours, his forgetfulness at delivering on called-ahead orders, and the chronic state of filthiness of the place, you will not miss out on the best tasting pulled pork bbq north of greensboro....More

Make the trip to see Jinx and learn what real barbeque is all about: meat smoked over coals at a low temperature for a long time. Maximum flavor, minimal sauce. Bread as a delivery mechanism for the meat. A real patron of the art.

Definitely go to Jinx's. The pulled pork sandwich is fantastic, and the experience of eating in a hole-in-the-wall joint run solely by a very friendly owner is worth the trip.

We arrive just as he was closing but fed us the most wonderful pork sandwich and cucumber salad anyway. We also drank hibiscus soda that was fantastic! Great conversation, delicious pork BBQ and a very fun place to visit. Go early or you will miss...More

After hearing about this "hole in the wall," my family and I were ready for some great BBQ, but were thoroughly dissappointed in both the food and the experience. Not only was there nowhere to sit, Jinx pushed aside some old VHS tapes and other...More
