“Great history”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

Enjoyed a nice meal and picked up some local stories. Had the brisquet and smoked sausage, liked the sauce bar. Good slaw, just very different from our regular fare in the north.

“Lunch with the family”
Reviewed December 5, 2013 via mobile

My family and I really enjoyed our lunch here. I got the combo plate brisket, turkey, and sausage. Great way to figure out what you like. Brisket was super moist and tender. Turkey had great smoke flavor and was juicy. Sausage was moist but flavor was kinda weak. The greens and sweet potatoes were delish. Line was out the door by 11:30 but it moved fast and was worth the wait.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

The renovations to this old building are excellent! Should get an architectural historic preservation award! Same great food as the other Jack's locations. Easy convenient parking. Nice to see the area getting a makeover too. Security at door as you go in. Recognized one of the employees from the Broadway restaurant. He really likes the new location. Spacious indoor setting as well as outdoor too.

“Very good beef brisket BBQ”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Drove Charlotte Ave on an errand and saw the restaurant. Knew about it from there facility on Trinity lane. Decided to try it on impulse. Looks totally new, got the beef brisket plate and it was excellent. Good lean cuts, wide choice of sauce, tasty sides. I'll be back soon.

“GOOD BAR-B-QUE AND SIDES”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

My husband likes bar-b-que. Where we live, the bar-b-que is vinegar based pulled pork. So when we travel in the South, we try other types of bar-b-que. We were in Nashville recently and had lunch at Jack's Bar-b-Que. He has three locations in Nashville and we ate at his newest location on Charlotte Pike at 16th Street. The staff were very friendly. My husband had the Combination, choosing Turkey, Pork and Beef Brisket. The Turkey and Pork were especially outstanding. I had the chicken and it was very good. They had a good selection of sides as well as very good deserts, i.e. banada pudding, etc.
