“Melt in your mouth Brisket!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant has an old industrial ambiance. It is cafeteria style, walk in and get in line. Menus are on the wall. We came in mid afternoon so we had no wait, we got the jumbo brisket sandwich for $5.99. We just got a bag of chips on the side for .95 cents but you could get the brisket plate with two sides for $8.95. I have never had brisket that was this tender and delicious! We loved it! We sat upstairs by the windows over looking Broadway. We tried all three of Jacks BBQ sauces and it was hard to pick a favorite- they were all delicious!

“real deal - try all the sauces”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Great bbq. You will wait in line. Just prepare yourself for it, so that you don't get all bent out of shape having to wait. Food is great. Try all the sauces!

“Good food, but often have a wait for counter service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

I highly suggest eating here. The BBQ is very good and reasonably priced. The food is hot and served quickly from the steam table. The atmosphere is different. It is counter service.

The wait time varies greatly. When I eating I saw the line go from 1 or 2 people up to 15 minutes and about out the door. If it is lined up, walk around and come back. The line will likely have gone down.

I got the pulled pork platter. The pork was hot, tender and juicy. The serving was a bit small, but when I recalled the price, it made sense.

“Didn't get the type”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2012

Besides this being a good location, the wait was too long for what I considered to be mediocre food. May possibly go back, but not worth waiting in line for.

“Amazing Smoked Meets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

This historic little bistro on Broadway is a must visit for anyone looking to have their craving for either ribs, pulled pork, brisket fulfilled in either sandwich or full meal form with lots of beverage brands to choose from and delectable side dishes galore.
