Admittedly, I'm from NY, so I'm not exactly an expert on topic of BBQ. That said, I've eaten a lot of it, and hands down this was the best i've ever eaten. We tried the pulled pork and the brisket, mac n cheese, and corn bread. All of it was incredible (and the portions were HUGE).

highly recommend stopping in for a meal! We stopped mid afternoon on a weekday so were able to hit it at a time with no lines/crowds.

We were told it was the best! But we had already ben to Puckett's he night before and it was by far Better! Really no comparison other than Jack's was on the main drag Broadway and Puckett's is up a few blocks. Never found anything better than at Puckett's

One taste of Jack's Bar-B-Que and you quickly realize why Jack is known as the "Bar-B-Que King" of Nashville. (That was even a Jeopardy question once!) The BBQ is chopped fresh right in front of you and truly is the BEST barbecue in Nashville. Jack's serves traditional Tennessee pork shoulder, Texas beef brisket, St. Louis style ribs, along with smoked turkey, sausage, and chicken. For BBQ in Nashville, Jack's is the best there is.

The servers in the food line were not friendly. One was actually very rude. Only upstairs seating was available and most of the tables dirty. BBQ was ok, nothing to rave about. The sides we had were not what we expected, warmed up Mac n cheese, cream style corn out of a can and mashed potatoes. For the price we paid I wish we had ate at the burger place across the road.

Friendly fast service and incredible food. A must try on Broadway.
Had the three meat combo with brisket, ribs and shoulder. More than enough to share. Worth making the trip and a return trip.
