My date and I ordered Ground Beef Nachos this evening during half price appetizers. Whatever was in the Nachos was NOT beef. I think it was ground turkey or worse. It was mushy, with no flavor and did not have the color of beef. I think they are using turkey to save money. NOT COOL. It was Disgusting, and I... More

This is a nice local sports bar. This would be a great place to watch a basketball or football game. I had the chicken fried chicken. The mashed potatoes were tasty, but I could have used a few more. The spices used in the chicken breading were very flavorful. My wife had the fried catfish filet and the breading was... More

My family and I have eaten at Set'em Up Jack before but never for Wednesday 1/2 price wing night. This restaurant always has great food and drink specials throughout the week. A family can eat here at a reasonable price and it is a pretty good place to watch sporting events. Everytime before the food was average to better than... More

Had a group of 4 when we visited this restaurant for lunch. We were seated right away. Waitress brought us menus and mentioned lunch specials, a sandwich and fries for $5.00. Three of us had the pulled pork sandwich with the apple barbecue glaze. It was a very tasty combo with the glaze and pulled pork. We also received a... More

The wife and I went for drinks and appetizers with my aunt and cousin. We had margaritas, my aunt and cousin had a beer and cherry bomb I think. The drinks are what you expect but the appetizers were good and better. The onion strings were good but a little greasy. The BBQ wings were meaty and good, but I... More

Good food but a little pricey. Dark room. No NFL package so not much of a sports bar. Waitress messed up on order and said "my bad" which means I hear you but I am not taking responsibility. Sometimes the staff has put our group at a very small table. Now they are adding an automatic 17% tip. I usually... More

We go in the early evenings to do the half off appetizers. They have the best chicken strips ever. They are huge and come with a big basket of waffle fries, 2 people can dine for under $10. They have a huge space as well, tons of massive screens to watch tv and do trivia and a good patio area... More

Food is generally good, depending on the cook staff. Cheap Taco night. Not as clean as it used to be.

If you're want to watch sports on a dozen or so screens while you eat, Set 'em Up Jacks is a good choice. There's nothing spectacular about the food or menu choices, but it's fine for sandwiches (French dip, burgers), but I found other items to be lacking. One person in our group ordered the talapia - personally, I rarely... More

My son and I went to lunch here today and both of us had the special. The chicken was decent, but not spectacular. But the French fries were very, very good. It was a $5 lunch, so we received about what I expected. Normally their food is very good, but today's BBQ was just okay. Typical sports-themed bar/restaurant, which was... More
