Reviews

I give the food a 5 but I think they were short handed tonight. Couldn't be helped and I'm not complaining. Just explaining 4 out of 5. The good was excellent. Some of the best BBQ I've eaten in a restaurant. Period.

Amazing place, had a nice waitress who game back every 15 minutes. We had great food, we all ordered the beef brisket, coleslaw, and greenbeans. Everything was amazing except for the brisket, it was only a little dry and had no sauce, but adding the sauce provided for you on the table makes it 10 times better. The portions were medio ... read more

This is a review for Jake's smokehouse BBQ. We went there on a Saturday afternoon, and surprisingly even though it was off lunch and off dinner it was still fairly crowded. That is a good sign that the food will not be bad. As we entered the restaurant we were seated by a pleasant young lady and then waited for a waitress. I do belie ... read more

The staff great you right inside the door, the dining room is huge, service is prompt, professional and informative. The menu itself is very well laid out.

It's been 11 years since I've been able to eat here since moving, and coming back, it didn't disappoint! Still the same casual atmosphere, great fried pickles and excellent, fall-of-the-bone ribs. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

Great food
I got the brisket and medium hot wings with Mac & cheese and green beans. The wings were the best. I did choose the fattier brisket over lean, but I felt it was just a little too fatty for me. Green beans were cooked with...More ... read more

Good experience. Nice staff, nice dining area....very good menu selections. The pulled pork was excellent. Tender and jucie with a good amount of bark adding to the flavor. I liked the choice of sauces from sweet to spicy...both were very good.

Prompt service, food delivered quickly while still hot. Staff was very nice. Only issue we ran into is wide being allergic to smoke, wasn't vented enough for her not to have to leave a bit early. Not a fault out the restaurant, more my wife's level of reaction.

We went in a was immediately greeted then sat. Our waiter Tracie was very nice. She informed us that we came in behind a big table, so it might be a wait for the food. The food came out within a timely manner. I ordered the brisket, sweet wings, French fries and Caesar salad, which was warm. Overall I would recommend this place.
