I got take-out and nothing was warm. The fries seemed like they'd been sitting out quite a while. As far as taste goes...It was just ok...nothing special. Everything was pretty bland. Price...too much for what you get...pretty small portions. If you really want BBQ, I'd...More

All we stopped here for were the fried pies, but they are excellent! Some of the best I've ever had. I wish they had them in more states/locations. The chocolate, peach, cherry all were so delicious.

On a trip through town, we called ahead to see if this place sells ribs to go. The lady who answered the phone said I would have to speak to a manager, and put one on the line. They only make St. Louis style ribs....More

Popped in for a quick bite. Food a little disappointing. Seemed popular with a few locals. Counter service staff friendly.

Big Jake's is a good departure from all the other restaurants in Hope which basically consist of chain restaurants and Mexican fare. The food's pretty good, prices could be a little cheaper, and the atmosphere is impersonal kind of like sitting in a McDonald's. You...More

The food was warm, flavorful, and the staff was polite. The best part of my dinner was the Brisket, it was so good. Can't wait to go back, especially knowing that because I'm eating out, I won't have to do the dishes for dinner.
