Large thick filled brisket sandwich that was delicious. My husband had the pork sandwich and fries, it was thick and tender meat. We were impressed. They make their barbeque sauce and we tried the vinegar, sweet, and spicy they were all very good. No complaints. We will visit again.

Jacks is won championship awards/certificates. BBQ at its best and not to mention local. Love the stew and bbq baked beans.

Highly disappointed at the bland, watery pulled pork and cold fries on a recent quick meal attempt. Avoid if you're looking for real BBQ

My husband and I had lunch here on a Thursday - the only day they serve beef brisket. My husband had a brisket sandwich with brunswick stew and I had the sandwich with mac n' cheese - both tasty. The brunswick stew was thick and very good. My husband used the hot sauce on his sandwich and said it was... More

My husband and I ate at this location for a late lunch. We wanted the ribs and they said they were out which was fine no big deal. Then we had to wait over 20 minutes to get our food which when it came out I swear it had been microwaved. The sides are very basic and nothing special at... More

The restaurant is nice and pretty clean inside; unfortunately, the staff and the food could be better. We stopped here to eat on a Tuesday, of which I was surprised, because many BBQ places aren't opened until the weekend. We were a little hesitant, as the ratings weren't real high, and the reviews weren't real good, but the other restaurants... More

My husband and I really like the way they do their bbq. We go frequently and have had a yummy and positive experience every single time. You order at a counter and they will bring it out to you in a basket. You serve yourself for drinks, condiments, and plastic-ware. We have never had a problem finding a place to... More

This is the only franchise of a former restaurant owner - a world championship BBQer. Brisket is my favorite BBQ choice so I ordered the sandwich (only available on Thursday). It was great. The meat was tender and flavorful (without sauce). As a side. I had the Brunswick Stew, It was good, not great. I have had better in other... More

If you want to eat some supper that'll make a real man out of you, you are considering the right place! I walked in this place like a redneck hippie that smokes meat instead of joints and order me up a big plate of barbecue! I grabbed that first pile of pulled pork and rung it out like a washcloth...

Given Myron Mixon is a Pit Master champion, I expected more. The food was acceptable, but the ribs and the pork had very little smoke flavor. Perhaps the establishment doesn't smoke their meats. I wouldn't make a purposeful trip back. But, someone else might prefer this style of bbq.
