Great food. Limited meat quantities. Very small dining area for busy weekends.

Awesome local place to eat. The smoked brisket is always fabulous. You have to try the Farmers Salad with brisket.

My wife and I are from West Virginia and we are visiting with family. We drove about 35 miles from the house of our family to eat here. The food was wonderful and the service was very good as well. We will come again on our next visit.

Sandwich was great! My brother in law had ribs and they were a bit dry. Super friendly place. I'll definitely be back.

Huge fan of their Brisket, chicken, pulled pork, wings, my favorite highlight is the Salted Carmel Bacon Cheesecake. Highly recommend the cornbread and sides. It's good to get there early, they sell out of items quickly!

I'm from the Deep South, where BBQ and Cajun food are what we do. While visiting Jefferson St. BBQ I tried the brisket and the Aduille Sausage… it was as good as I've had anywhere. The blue wedge salad was different than anything I've had and delicious! I regret that I didn't save room for dessert…

BBQ was great- we had brisket, ribs & a wrap.
The Bloody Mary was one of the best I've had in this area. If I were to suggest anything - it would be to give jalapeño cornbread with each meal & not count it as a side.

Another great meal! We drove 45 min for dinner. The jalapeño cornbread knocks it outta the park!! The Big Nasty and the wrap was our choice this time and both are very tasty.

... I'm not a "american bbq" person, I'm honest but came with my family, I got excited when I saw CAPRESE on yeah, Italian :), Mozzarella was superdelicious with fireroasted tomatoes and balsamic drizzle �, then I had a very delicious White chili. Then I broke down and got a rib, it was smooth like butter, enjoyed it very much. I had a great experience. I will be back

Service isn't what it used to be. The prices are getting out of hand. Group of five and wasn't allowed to just add a chair had to set separately. Most likely won't bother to come back.

We have been here 4 or 5 times. This was not a good experience. It started with them being out of pulled pork. It was only like 7 p.m. What type of barbecue place is out of pulled pork? That was the whole reason we went there. Then the prices are kind of high. A big plate of nachos was like $9.50. Drinks are $2.25. I asked for a large mac and cheese to go but not until we were ready to leave. The waitress forgot about it so I had to ask for it. The large mac and cheese which they say is 1 lb(actually weighed 15 oz with the container) was $7.00. Don't advertise a weight if it's not weighed. Just say large or something. Waitress took our cash for the bill and like took 5-10 minutes to bring back change. Husband could see her talking in the kitchen. We won't be coming back!

Food tasted good and service was good. Reason for 2 stars is its a poor value. I got a wrap with brisket in it, it might has well been a vegan version. There wasn't enough meat to feed a bird. Pretty disappointing since what was on it tasted good. They need to double the amount of meat and then it would be 5 stars

Service was great, baked beans were excellent. Pulled pork was just a little dry but bbq sauce took care of that. Price was very good and plenty to eat as far as portion size. We will definitely try it again.

Horrible service and lack of accommodation. Our party of 7 drove from out of town and we were willing to sit outside at the separate tables, after the hostess told us that was our only option. We were then told that there were not enough servers to accommodate our party. No one was willing to work with us. We won’t be back. We ended up eating at Marty’s down the street and the service was awesome!

Review of Jefferson St. BBQ by Christina Doan

Terrible service. Too many rules and they wouldn’t accommodate my group of 7. They said they couldn’t move tables, and we weren’t allowed to sit outside because they sit two a table. We were completely fine with sitting separately outdoors, but then they said they didn’t have enough servers. This was after we waited an hour because they closed the restaurant until 6:45pm for a private party. They wouldn’t allow us to sit outdoors, yet the private party before us filled the whole outside? We drove from out of town, and gave them many chances to remedy the situation. Nothing. We will never go here again.

Great pulled pork, great brisket, the baked beans were good and the macaroni and cheese was very good. Good service and priced right! If you’re ever in Converse, IN be sure to stop in and enjoy some deliciousness!

We have been to Jefferson St. several times and our visit last night was by far the best. Our waitress, Joy T., was the best we've ever had there; she was prompt, charming and friendly. Our meal was delicious - our nachos appetizer was hot and crisp (it hasn't been sometimes in the past); my 1/2 lb. chicken breast was done perfectly and the rub didn't overpower the meat; my salad was just right for the size of the rest of the meal. My wife's mac'inac (spelling?) made us laugh when it arrived - very creative presentation and, according to her, very, very good. Our last visit before this one left us on the fence about returning, but Joy's good work and the food this time definitely means we'll be back.

Jefferson St. BBQ Q&A

Jefferson St. BBQ Q&A

What’s your signature dish?

Our most popular and significant item on our menu is our Pulled Pork. We source local hogs from local farmers and work to ensure that the meat we smoke is fresh - so fresh, we smoke the hogs as soon as they arrive to us from the butcher. We incorporate the whole hog in our Pulled Pork - loins, shoulders and hams - our pork is unique and special. It's so good, we bet you won't even want sauce!

How do you go about creating the perfect menu for your clients?

We like to meet our clients and really learn about their needs and wants. Once we have an idea of the type of event and basic wants, it's very simple for us to develop a personalized menu for our clients. We use our years of experience to know what works for certain types of events and groups.

What do you love most about your job?

Our favorite part of the job is seeing our clients happy - and stuffed! We work very hard to produce excellent food and to provide wonderful service. When our clients are happy, we are happy.

What inspired you to start your own business?

When I opened Jefferson Street BBQ in 2012, I had a vision to create a destination restaurant and catering company that was unlike anything around. I wanted to provide amazing food that was both wonderful to eat and that would support my local agricultural community. Along with my team, we have successfully done just that - seven years of experience has led us to be one of the best catering companies that is both affordable and reliable.

Why should our clients choose you?

The choice is simple - our catering services are flexible, tailored to your needs and our food speaks for itself. Come over for a complimentary tasting and meet our Chef Owner Lindsay to really get a feel for who we are and what we believe in. Our farm to fork menus will impress the most discerning guests and delight the most budget conscious.
