They have the best barbeque sauce and the ribs are delicious. We always get the snack pack to go. Just enough for dinner and our go to barbeque spot.

Decided to give Jenkins Bar B Q on Emerson a try (tried the downtown previously and it sucked) for lunch to go today and it was delicious! I had the pork and got the beef for my Dad. Also requested the hot sauce for my sandwich and it fantastic. Dad had the regular sauce and seemed to enjoy it. I... More

Surprise, you have to specify the cut of the rib (end, middle, etc.). Well if you are a butcher, you'd know what to ask for, but as a consumer one would hope a cut selection to bring you back for more. It was country style service with brown paper wrapping in a brown paper bag w/bread and your choice of... More

I came here because one of my good friends lives for this place but in my honest opinion i dnt know why. I agree with some other reviews overcooked and not very friendly service to boot. I'd try somewhere else if I were you..

My husband had the rib sandwich with coleslaw and I had the pork sandwich with baked beans and potato salad. Food was good, wait was a bit long. Was going to order wings but was told the wait would be 15min. We ordered what we were told was ready 'now' but still had to wait about 8 min, which is... More

This place was gross. Dirty tables & bathrooms, and the food is overcooked. The BBQ sauce is pre-made and bottled, nothing is made from scratch. We tried a bit of everything. The best part of our meal was the potato salad. Don't bother stopping here!
