From the last time we visited, we were disappointed. Very slow and not even busy, staff seemed to be preoccupied with other things.. food was still wonderful however.

OMG! You must try this place! Lisa our waitress was awesome in helping us with our order! It may be off the beaten path but it's worth your time and money!

Amazing BBQ burgers, the belly buster was especially good, the brisket was perfectly cooked. Was expecting lesser quality for it being delivery but we were really impressed with quality and delivery time. The red skin potato salad is a must try!

We first tried Jakes several years ago and was pleasantly surprised. We were in the area this week and so glad we stopped in for lunch. We lucked out also with the daily special which was half priced nachos. The pulled pork and the fried tortilla chips just worked so well. I am still thinking about it. The lunch platters... More

One of the few places to stick it out and stay around, Very good BBQ and it is off the path of the high price places at the ocean front a good place to go and get a break from all the fast paced activity and crowds

Jakes has the most delicious pulled pork and generous portions. All of their food is good but I love the pork the best!!

Everything is great!!! My favorite is the chopped pork platter, but their dry rub wings are absolutely amazing. The chicken tacos on Taco Tuesday are good and the Bbq nachos are delicious. They also mail out coupons for our birthdays and our anniversary which make coming that much more enjoyable.

I had the chicken wings with the dry rub. They were very good, big wings cooked perfectly, I added sauce from the selection at the table. The prices were very reasonable.

Having been stationed all across the country, I have yet to find a place that could even come close to beating Jakes. It kept me going during my two tours at Norfolk! We were in the area visiting friends and had to come back. Their sweet corn nuggets are worth the trip alone. I have yet to have a meal... More

Choose this restaurant from trip advisor and we were not disappointed. Plenty of choice of steak and sides. Friendly helpful staff. It did us a few attempts to find in the shopping area but we were not disappointed.

Thank Heather G
