I have never seen a privately owned establishment give such poor customer service!! Payed over $14.00 for my meal and it comes out incorrect, not even close to what I ordered... they didnt want to give me the less expensive dish that I requested and became extremely combative!!
I've eaten at TomJenkins BBQ all the time, but I didn't want to drive that far.
So I go through the drive through, and the funny think is the window is built so that you person behind it is taller than the actual window, funny I couldn't hear him at all, If i wanted to ask whats good to eat, I wouldn't be able to.
Next, I put the order in, and I like how its fast. I get my two sodas, and my girl said her 7up tasted horrible, then I noticed my root beer didn't taste right either, like it was just the flavor of carbonated sugar. So I was about to place my order and one of the employees was arguing on the phone with some one like "aw dog, ya dog this that, im ghetto etc." i was like this place has no class, obviously mismanaged!
So the guy was like " ya ur soda probably doesnt taste good cause they need to pump it." Ok, why would you let it get to that point.
I get home were eating, the ribs were ok, kinda fatty and to many bones chipping off, obviously much lower grade than
TOM JENKINS BBQ. The mac and cheese sucked, the steak fries were awesome. They didn't even put extra bbq sauce in the box.
My girlfriend threw up the next day. I will never go again.!!
hey Jack get a grip on your store and the employees, they were probably selling weed out the back !! GHETTO!!!

I just ate there about 20 minutes ago. It was awful. It didn't even smell good walking in the door. Maybe that was just the collard greens haha. I ordered the #2 BBQ Sliced Beef ($9.74 at) Per the recommendation of the staff. Wow.. they were really off. It was mushy nasty beef covered in flavorless sauce. I then tried to make it better by using the HOT SAUCE on the table. This helped a bit, but not enough to finish the meat. I did like the sides. Macaroni was tasty.. homestyle. The corn on the cob tasted like.. corn on the cob. Finished them both. Then i moved to the corn bread. Decent if you put enough butter on.. but i guess you could say that about most things. Customer service was to be expected at a BBQ place and the employees were arguing in the back about how they take orders and what they were low on. I was there at only 7pm.. i think they close at 830 but i couldn't find the hours anyway. Last but not least we left not happy and smelling of wood smoke. Considering I wasted $20 and gas and time to try this place that will be my first and last visit unless they are doing a ""hey we changed try us again free"" promo. Doubt it. Thanks for listening.

I love BBQ. I've tried everything in South Florida. NOTHING can touch Jack's. Don't let the plain decor fool you, this place is for real. The portions are large and satisfying, and their sauce is perfect. Try the Sampler platter the first time you go, after you've had that a couple hundred times, go for the rip-tip platter.
Jack's side-dishes will also impress: My favs are the mac n cheese, the beans, and the fries.
You also get a nice hunk of cornbread with most meals. Good for cleaning your plate.
If you've got one meal left to eat on this earth, have it at Jack's.
