I keep kosher so I cannot eat at Jacks but every time I meet with Jack i find out more about what makes him such a kind and generous person. The smells from the restaurant make my mouth water and I wish I was able to eat there. It truly must be what heaven smells like More...

Excellent BBQ. They are really quick. Took about 5 mins to get a beef brisket sandwich, and a side of chili. The beef brisket was off the wall, and the chili, was the real deal. Full of meat, and this was a side item. I thought it was just going to be beans, but no this Chili, is a meal in itself. This is the type of place, you go out of your way for, to get some good grub. They have a bar, with a large screen TV for sports, as well. Highly recommended! More...

Good Texas Style BBQ. Tuesdays are the days to go. Only day they have dino beef ribs and they are absolutely worth it. Great brisket too. Pork ribs are excellent. I am a die hard BBQ guy and have a competition BBQ team. We know good BBQ. Toured the back of the house and met the pitmasters last week. Would love to be able to.cook like that everyday for people. Worth the trip for good BBQ that this state lacks........ More...

Thank you for last Saturday. We had to cancel our reservation when my brother in law was admitted to the hospital. So we were able to take 2 “ picnic orders” to go and feed his family and ours at the hospital. He was happy as he gobbled up brisket and that made everyone happy. Your hospitality made the difference in a trying stressful day. Thank you.. Earl More...

Probably the best BBQ I've had in Seattle. I miss my midwest and southern BBQ joints - so Jacks fills the void. I usually get the rib plate or brisket plate with beans and mac and it never disappoints.

Only "Texas BBQ" place I've found in Seattle that's actually good. Actual smokers flood the street and parking lot with smokey Texas goodness. Ribs were okay, but the brisket was a nearly fat-free slab of heaven. Didn't care for the sauce, but the meat doesn't need it. Nice bark on the brisket, too. Get the Texas caviar...thank me later.

I grew up in Texas and have been to the central Texas brisket houses. Jack’s brisket when they opened rivaled any of them and dare I say, his brisket has gotten better the longer it’s been open. I went here for Father’s Day and the brisket was perfect. I took a giant group of Texans here before my wedding and they raved about it. The ribs are outstanding and the Billionaire Beef Bacon is I like anything I’ve ever tried anywhere. This is the only place for BBQ in the PNW. More...

As good as any BBQ in TX. Margaritas are done right (as in NO MIX used). Breakfast tacos are a great addition. I would like more non-pork meat options. Great food. Great service. A bit of TX right here in Seattle. More...

There is good BBQ in the PNW. Right here. This is central Texas bbq meaning it’s all about the brisket. It was that good. I’ve been to The Salt Lick in Round Rock (If you know Texas BBQ, you know about Salt Lick bbq). I’m telling you, it was on par if not a bit better. The portion could be a little bigger, but the meat was perfect. I will be back. More...

Jack is awesome, the food is the best, especially the brisket which I love. I am from Texas and for BBQ this is the real deal, nothing compares to it in Seattle, I fact most of the others are awful. I feel at home there and Shelby is an increadble waitress and hostess. More...

Jack's BBQ offers delicious, authentic Texas-style bbq and sides. My coworker and I had heard of this restaurant, so when we were in Seattle for a conference, we decided to check it out. The pulled pork was incredibly tender, the Texas caviar (black eyed pea salad) was refreshing and flavorful, the macaroni and cheese was rich and their homemade pickles were a unique touch. Our waitress was great and very attentive, while Jack Timmons, the owner, actually came by our table to speak with us, and later gave us a slice of pecan pie "on the house." Would recommend this to anyone looking for good BBQ in the Seattle area! More...

I love Jack's BBQ, but I'm pissed! I placed a Door Dash order, and waited almost an hour for delivery. Finally received a call from Door Dash that the restaurant is too busy to fill the order. Called the restaurant and spoke to a young lady who handed me over to the manager (Leo?), who proceeded to argue with me about why it's not their problem that they are accepting orders they can't fill! Who does that? Offer a gift card or discount, but don't piss me off more than I already am after waiting for food that's not coming! Not good customer service. Don't do delivery, if you can't do delivery! More...

Being a native Texan, I recognize good Texas hill country barbecue brisket when I smell that smoky aroma and shovel it down the hatch. Jack's is it in Seattle! Of course, you gotta wash it down with a Shiner Bock! More...

Unlike any other BBQ in Seattle. No "fusion-this" or "A blend of organic and free-range-that;" just meat. And really good meat, to boot.

I lived in TX 20 years. I have my own smoker and do my own briskets so I consider myself a BBQ snob. Been in Seattle 20 years and have FINALLY found a BBQ restaurant I'll eat at. Not just the meat, but the sides are legit. The sauce, not so much but I was told to try the spicey. The meat's so good, you don't need sauce tho. More...

Just had Jack's cater my daughter's wedding on Nov 7th and we couldn't have been happier with the decision. Our order, and thoughts on each - Brisket (brisket was very good, perhaps only a salt / pepper rub? great smoke flavor, didn't use BBQ sauce as it wasn't needed) - Pulled Pork (one of my favorites from Jack's they do a great job when pulling to get the majority of any remaining fat removed. Also, nice bark throughout. My wife did say that she still prefers my pulled pork, but she may be biased :) ) - Sausages - I ordered WAY to many of these for the size crowd, but that just means MORE FOR ME!.. they are awesome! - Beans (can't have BBW w/o the beans.. better than average.. nice amount of heat ups the score here) - Mac and Cheese (just a sucker for Mac and Cheese.. good not great?) - Texas Caviar (ok.. so this is a side that is funny..if people see it or hear the name and they may just pass it by... that would be the BIGGEST mistake ever in my opinion.. this stuff is just fantastic and the fact that I have tons left over is just a bonus! All in all.. fantastic experience... John (father of the bride) More...

Jack’s serves great Texas BBQ (we had the slow-smoked and perfectly crusted brisket and the jalapeño cheddar sausage), amazing hush puppies and pecan pie. I’m not a sweet tea connoisseur but their smoked sweet tea was delicious! A visit from Jack himself made our first visit memorable. We will be back! More...

We loved it! We ordered 2 picnics and sides...The meats were delicious! The service was wonderful and when we were finished we were taken out back to the smokers for a little field trip!Jack was also there and you can tell how passionate he is about the food. It was my brother in laws 50th Birthday & he got some pecan pie for dessert which was amazing! Such a great experience! I'm telling all my friends & we will be back!! Thank you Jacks! More...

5 July 2017

We thought the line would be too long at Franklin's in Austin so this 4th of July we decided to try Jack's Central Texas BBQ in Seattle. It's as good as Cooper's in Llano or Black's in Lockhart in my opinion. Jack is a former Microsoft employee from Central Texas who decided to bring real smoked meat to this Vegan region. The long long lines indicate that he found a popular niche! More...

I feel like I'm guilding the Lily a bit here, withe all the great reviews already appearing here, but the brisket, sausage, ribs and sides were all outstanding and like nothing I've ever tasted before. I especially liked the black-eyed pea salad, which I believe they call Texas Caviar. I encourage all to give it a try. More...

Jen Turner

25 June 2017

Lordy, this is some good BBQ! And we've travelled for BBQ before, had some of the best, ate stuff from different competition teams, etc. This doesn't even factor in the awesome service - they even vac packed the meat AT THEIR OWN SUGGESTION to help it travel back to Canada. (Seriously, when is the last time that you've ever gone somewhere that was so incredibly helpful and good to you?) More...

17 May 2017. Our tour operator asked us where we wanted to be dropped off. We suggested somewhere we could get BBQ. He dropped us out where it seemed we were in middle of nowhere to Jack's BBQ. The four of us had the best night. That was because the food was awesome (picnic for 4), our waitress was so much fun and helpful, the atmosphere was great, had fun with the manager (dessert "pecan Pie") was the first and best tasting ever. Thank you More...

I have nothing but positive feedback for Jack's food, service, and atmosphere. I learned that brisket can be either dry or moist depending on the amount of fat on the cut, I went with the moist, delish!!! I had the pork ribs, mac n cheese, greens, and pecan pie. Oh! And I tried their hush puppies too. Delish all around!! This was my first visit and definitely won't be my last. The banana pudding was sold out so a definite for my next visit. Already telling others about the best BBQ in town. More...

I've been here twice in 2 months... both times surprised by the quality of BBQ. I've been visiting as many NW BBQ's as I can over the last 3 months. I've hit 15 joints (so far) from Mt. Vernon to Auburn. Some good, some bad... but Jack's has excelled in producing the trilogy, service, sides & feel. Recommend of course. More...

Finally found a descent place to enjoy good BBQ and best part is I don't have to make it or clean up... win-win!! Real good smokey flavor we got the picnic for 4 so we could try everything; house made smoked brisket & jalapeno cheddar sausage, chicken, brisket & ribs & included 4 sides!! The brisket was by far the best... smokey flavorful tender & juicy... their sauces were just ok tho & came in regular or spicy... thanks Jacks... I will def be coming back!! More...

Great food. Service is a̶ ̶b̶i̶t̶ quite slow and inattentive especially if your dining alone, even when it's dead. With limited time for lunch breaks kinda forces me to avoid the place more than I'd like.

Brisket: deep, rich smokey flavor. Great bark, tender and juicy. Delicious. Pork ribs: rich smokey flavor. A wee bit chewy, but still excellent. Sauce: tasted more like enchilada sauce than bbq sauce. Thankfully served on the side. Totally unnecessary. Staff: friendly, great to talk with. They can open a place in Austin anytime and would rank very high, but to say Jack's is as good as Franklin's is a bit of a stretch. Next time I am in Seattle, I'll definitely go back. More...

As a official KCBS judge and a guy who's traveled the world looking for the best BBQ, I can tell you Jacks BBQ is the real deal. The brisket and ribs are as good or better than any place in central Texas and that includes Franklin's! If you're a fan of BBQ it's an amazing place to get an incredible meal. However, if you understand the ART of BBQ, (and great BBQ is an art), you must come to Jack's. He is truly one of the great artists of our time. More...

I just discovered Jacks' BBQ, and where have you been all my life? I consider myself a student of BBQ with 4 grills / smokers on the deck. This is by far the best BBQ I have had. Had an amazing time. I loved the smoked Portabella mushrooms. I was there with a cigar event and 50 folks. Every time a plate was served, there were a ton of "Oohh Snapps" heard across the table because each dish seemed to outdo the last one served. Incredible. Highly recommended. Thank you Jack for the Vertigo event! More...

We last night for the first time. The Brisket.amd ribs were AMAZING, after reading reviews the next time I will ask for the brisket wet. I agree that the sauce needs adjustment,but I will say the flavor of the meet is so good you don't need it. The slaw was good, macaroni and beens were ok. Not a fan of the hush puppies or sausage, but overall very good BBQ! More...

Go early and ask for the brisket "wet" for the juiciest brisket around. Perfect sugar cookie and smoke ring. Too much cumin in the BBQ sauce made it taste like chili base with the texture of cocktail sauce. Upscale TX BBQ served with a knife and butcher paper on a metal sheet tray. Meat could definitely pass in Dallas...but not the sauce. More...

Our first time at Jack's while waiting for our food we were allowed to tour the pit area where we found an 18 & 22 foot pit, it was quite impressive.

I'd give it five star if not for the fact I just ate at a bunch of BBQ places in Austin about a month ago. It's the best I've had so far in the Seattle area for sure. Loved the burnt ends! I could just eat those all day. The pork ribs were also very tasty without the need for any sauce. Sausage and pulled pork was also very good. The sides we had, coleslaw and mac & cheese were good as well. The only meat I was not blown away by was the brisket. This could have been a matter of the section I had, but it was a bit dry and the only meat I put a little sauce on. I'd go back for sure. More...

Since I live in Portland, OR, I had been biding my time for the opportunity to visit Jack's BBQ. And it was worth side trip at the end of a long day in Seattle on business!!! We got the picnic for four which gave us an awesome sampling of the meats and four sides. I couldn't get enough of the brisket and no sauce needed even though it comes for anyone who is used to that.

The BBQ was pretty darn good. Love the pulled pork. Was nice and juicy and not pork mush like BBQ Petes. So disappointed in them, but now found a new place for real BBQ. Also had ribs. They were awesome too. Sauce was good. Could have been a little sweeter, but I ate it any way. The only complaint and it's not a big one is that the rub you use was a tad salty. I love salt, but it was pretty darn salty. Also the price was acceptable. $60 for lunch for two was a bit high although we did eat a lot More...

Top notch! Seriously great Texas BBC. The minute we got out of the car my mouth started watering. Killer brisket - tender and moist -pulled pork was very tasty and we had mac n cheese on the side. The pitmaster Tony (what a nice, nice guy) slipped me a rib and two sausages to try as well .....I thought I had died and gone to heaven it was all so good! Great service, friendly unpretentious atmosphere. Plus, they have a 3-6 Happy Hour daily. The B.O.M.B!!!!! More...

You know what I love about Jacks BBQ besides the wonderful food? The conversation that goes on at Jacks.

It was awesome!!!! Jack BBQ+Family/Friends=Love. Come on peeps get your butt down to Jacks :) More...

Food was great, service was quick. We thought our family of three would be able to share their biggest plate called the "Picnic" (also because the waitress said we could easily feed the three us with that selection). But it definitely was not enough, it's more of a picnic for one rather than a family of three. With that said, we ordered a couple of sandwhiches to go (brisket, pulled pork). The sides are really good too! The atmosphere is unique and it felt like we were sitting in someone's kitchen (which made us feel right at home. We'd definitely go back again! More...

I decided to try this place after a recommendation from a friend. I arrived for lunch. Line was long and they served cafeteria style. The staff was very friendly. The lady that served the drinks was confident that I will be back. It was worth the wait. Tried the Texas Triple. The smoke ring on the brisket was no joke and the meat was tender and flavorful. Sausage had a snap to it and the ribs.....OH my. I normally have my BBQ with sauce but did not miss that these were served with sauce on the side. Needless to say, I will be back. So will my co-workers that tried the Brisket and Sausage (I would not let them touch the ribs). Had the Mac & cheese and Greens for sides. The Mac & Cheese is serve with Jalapeno's and had a nice kick to it. More...

Jacks is a refreshing burst of Texas in airport way, SoDo. The brisket is so good I could have eaten double but should have eaten half of the generous serving. Texas caviar is an explosion of southern flavor and the lemonade tastes like it was stolen from a kids stand down south! Good honest real food and great hospitality. It's a winner. More...
