Average BBQ served on plastic plates with so-so sides.

Good food variety including great barbeque, fried chicken and southern style vegetables. Wait staff extremely attentive. A little busy at peak lunchtime, but tables open up quickly

I can't say enough about Jackson's BBQ. The atmosphere isn't much, it's been here forever it seems, but the food makes up for it. Just simple home cooking. Nothing fancy and no frills. Service is friendly and recommendations are helpful.

We went to Jackson's based on TripAdvisor reviews and were very disappointed. First they didn't get my order correct. The ribs were very fatty with a lot of gristle. The chicken was just OK. The one redeeming feature was the slaw which was the best I've had in NC.
