This was our second trip to Nashville and made it a point to return to Jack's! Excellent food! Especially liked the ribs and turkey and sweet potato.

Went for lunch so it was busy. Food is great. Love the taste of the brisket. Staff was friendly. It isn’t cheap though. For 2 of us it was around $35. So be ready to pay more if you want lunch. Very good food

Drove up from Pensacola for the impending Ravens vs Titans game. Had to stop at “Jack’s” due to two previous experiences. They never disappoint....fantastic Brisket and other superb smoked meats. Excellent sides and a wide selection of beers, etc. Don’t miss “Jack’s” !!!!!

We had an early dinner here when we visited Nashville. Jack's was suggested to us by many people, so we had to try it. The meat we got tasted ok, but was very dry (pulled pork, and pulled chicken). The portions were decent sized, and...More
