    This was our second visit. The waiting staff near the Bar need improvement. There should be at least 3 people to tend to tables as this will allow the bartender to stay behind the bar to make drinks. Also it seem that the food came out too fast which gives off the impression that it was not freshly made. The quality of service was lacking compared to our initial visit.

    We were in town for a funeral and found this place for a quick lunch. We were greeted upon entering and seated promptly. Our waitress was incredibly fast and proficient. The food was excellent. We enjoyed it so much that we ordered food to go to have for dinner on our drive home. If in the area, we will certainly visit again.

    Texas Jacks is Arlington's hidden gem. The staff is kind, the drinks are solid, and the food is awesome. For apps, the nachos (with Brisket) and the brisket egg rolls are fire. You can't really go wrong with any of the entrees or sides. Happy hour is from 3-6 every weekday and is as good of a deal as any in the area. Definitely the best bbq spot in town.

    Rotating assortment of cocktails is always fun. There is a nice mix of local and regional craft beer on tap. Our third visit and for the second time in a row I went with the moist brisket and the collard greens and came away happy! My wife and I again enjoyed the butterscotch bread pudding and our server threw in a banana pudding with a candle for the 60 year old birthday boy in our party. All around the table our party of 6 (4 were first timers!) were raving about their orders.

    Street corn is amazing and a must! We dined outside, there is street traffic but still nice setting. I got the sampler platter. Brisket is A+, pulled pork B, and ribs were a bit disappointing C. They have their own sauces, which were good. Overall, we really enjoyed our meal and I would recommend as a boutique/specialty BBQ spot in Fairfax County.

    The food, service, and atmosphere was great and I would definitely come to this location again if ever in the area. Parking was a bit of a challenge so be prepared to find street parking. The pickled onion and pickles juices put on the plate may run into your food. Recommend when ordering to ask for those pickled items to be placed on the side if you don't like pickled flavoring running into your meat.

    A late lunch. The food is still good, but the staff and service were lacking. Had the esquites, pulled pork burrito, fries, and sweet tea. None of the food was hot. There was a large slab of very good German chocolate cake, served ice cold. I had half of it later at home at room temperature, and it was first rate. It was the third cold lunch I have had there in the last fifteen months. I will not go back for awhile.

    This is our favorite BBQ in Arlington. There is a large outdoor patio which we like especially since it’s loud inside if the restaurant is full. It’s kid friendly, and great staff.

    Meat sampler was delicious. All the meats were moist, tender, smoky, flavorful. On a previous visit, we found the chicken to be a little lacking, so we skipped it this time around. Definitely get the mac and cheese. The beans are sweet, but not *too* sweet. The brussels sprouts are a can't-miss. Service was good and friendly, although we were there at a slow time.

    We have been to Texas Jack’s multiple times and loved it. This experience was good, not great. Apps (deviled eggs, brisket egg rolls) were very good. Dark meat chicken, sausage were very good. Brisket, which is usually my favorite here, was underwhelming. Overdone and dry. Pork and ribs unremarkable. For the price I definitely expect much better. Hopefully just an off night.

    Our three-year-old daughter insisted on going out for macaroni and cheese. I know of few other places that have that quality of macaroni and cheese. As for me, I was there for the brisket sandwich and the excellent beer selection.

    We decided to visit Texas Jack at the last minute for Sunday brunch. As always, we weren't disappointed. I was surprised that there weren't more people enjoying their brisket. If you are looking for a last-minute reservation, this place is fantastic. Great service and delicious food!
