I was tired and hungry and didn't feel like cooking so I stopped at Fat Jack's. I ordered a 2 meat sampler with brisket and pulled pork. The brisket was moist, tender and tasty while the pulled pork was dry and flavorless. The BBQ sauce that tasted like a grocery store brand couldn't even save the pork. Two sides came... More

I was in for dinner with a friend. I ordered the double-burger and fries. I emphasized I wanted the burgers medium. I was served two hockey pucks. The two women behind the counter seemed more interested in taking phone orders than satisfying this customer. Too bad. When I complained that the burgers were not how I ordered them, the one...

Very good BBQ, I especially enjoyed their sauces. Had their texas twister sandwich, excellent. The only downside is that it takes awhile to have your order finished, so call ahead. 9.9/10

Our family and friends had been customers of Fat Jack's in Jenkintown PA for many years. The food and service had been very good up until the closing of the Jenkintown store. For reason unknown, In Feb. 2014, Mr. Fat Jack closed the store in Jenkintown and announced his move to Elkins Park with new location opening scheduled for early... More

The food was delicious, and the staff was very friendly. My son wanted ribs for his birthday, and he was not disappointed! Pulled pork BBQ and beef brisket were also yummy.

Passed this place many times the last few years always meaning to try it. Finally did & now we're kicking ourselves for waiting so long. Nothing fancy, just a small storefront place with a few picnic tables, a few smaller high top tables & friendly staff. They seem to do more take out than eat in. Jumbo wings slathered in... More

Great BBQ flavor and fantastic sized portions. This place is truly a gem with outstanding food despite its outside appearance. The service was great and the staff had a refreshing sense of humor. It was a great experience overall.

Dined solo, had BBQ chicken breast, tender, moist with a nice mild sauce. Smashed potatoes and Mac & cheese were very good as well. Table service was good, wait time wasn't bad.

This is our favorite place to eat when I meet my son and his friends for lunch. We go to the one in Jenkintown on Old York Road. We have never been disappointed and can always count on a very delicious lunch. We visit my daughter in NC often, and this is the best BBQ I've had outside of NC.... More
