I stopped by via drive-thru to pick up what I hoped would be a great meal. The order waitress was very nice but improperly described a lunch special. I was told 2 pieces of white meat and a rib, or 2 ribs and a piece...More

This place has some good BBQ. I love the sauce. My go to is the chicken sandwich, fries and sweet tea. You have to try this place if you're in Jacksonville.

Cashier was very friendly and helpful, however food was nothing to rave about. I had ribs and they were a little on the tough side.

Not being from Florida, we were recommended to Jenkins by the bellman at our hotel. It's an order-at-the-window place, pick up your food by number when they holler it out. The meat didn't appear to have been seasoned before it was cooked and there was...More
