There is much to like about Jambo's. This is high quality competition level barbecue, with high quality meats, expertly trimmed, studiously seasoned. The brisket is perfectly cooked, but the modern pit they are using, along with their technique, does not impart as much smokiness into their meat as I prefer. My wife likes the fact it's not heavily smoked, so it's personal choice.

Sides are well made.

Take a drive and give Jambo's a try.

Not much smoke flavor at all. The brisket sandwich was really tender, but lacked flavor, buns were great, and so was the sauce. Might go back if I'm in the area, but wouldn"t make a special trip.

This little off-the-beaten-path place is worth the trip. Absolutely, the best bbq I've ever eaten.
They have a gargantuan sandwich called the "Jambo". It is all 6 of their meats sandwiched between 2 slices of grilled Texas Toast. Better be hungry, cause it's ALOT of meat.
I tried the "Sadie", which is a huge baked potato, covered with butter,sour cream, cheese, 2 kinds of meat, grilled onions, and topped with their signature pinto beans. Man, was it good!
Don't bypass this place.. You've gotta stop in, you will l-o-v-e it !!!!
