I was working temporarily in this area and always got off work at 7 p.m. This place has a large variety of all types of BBQs. They have a counter where you order, pick up your food at the far end and go to a table. They have about a dozen tables with four chairs each. The dine-in closes at... More

The place does not look like much, but wow the BBQ is tasty!! Reasonably priced. Especially if you do the family meal groupon. Been here a few times. Always great. If you go 5 min before closing they might be out of something. We want it fresh. It makes sense that if you go late they might be out of... More

The restaurant is open until 8:30 pm. I arrived at the drive-thru window at 6:58. There was one car in front of me, no problem. I finally got to the window at 7:08. At 7:12 the rude lady that works there came to the window and asked me what do I want. I proceeded to order a rib dinner. Nope,... More

Reading other reviews I see complaints of dry pork etc. maybe I went on a good day but I can say the pork... More

I've eaten at Jack's many times over the years, and the food is very good. Usually, I go with the pulled pork, beans, corn and cornbread. The employees are friendly and courteous. The restaurant has been spruced up a bit recently with new interior signs, a soft drink station and a drive-thru. The smokers in the parking lot remain. They're... More
