Amazing place to relax and have a delicious meal. Awesome patio area.
The food was really good and the servings for the price. It was nice and bright and the server was very attentive. Definitely can’t wait to return.
The food is absolutely delicious! So flavorful and well prepared. My friend and I did the Monday half-price special on the meat sampler, and it was well worth it. Got to try all of their smoked meats at once with homemade accompaniments like pickled onions and homemade pickles. We enjoyed the sides, too, but I’d like to suggest that maybe there are more options, like if you order a particular platter you get a side or two with it. Just the same, I cannot wait to go back. This is a good place for pandemic dining as it’s spacious and the tables are set well apart. There are hands-free menu and payment options. Dinner for two with two beers each and tip was about $75. That’s is really good! The services was prompt and attentive. Great place!
Was disappointed as the restaurant was out of the first two items we ordered, ribs and chicken. Not great that a BBQ place should run out during a holiday weekend!
Fall backs of flank steak (overcooked and dry) and brisket (dry and bland) were poor.
Overall, will not be going back.
Service was impeccable. The BBQ is good - borderline great. The sides really set this place apart. Brussel sprouts are worth the price of admission. Cornbread and chili are both absolutely amazing, as well. Presentation is also an A+. Love the different pickled veggies that came with the tray of meat.
Everything is priced steep. Probably has to do with the location.
So why not 5 stars across the board?? The meat - let's talk about it. This place carries a lot of weight with supposed food experts. They're not entirely wrong in singing TJs praises. However... If you are semi-successful on your own pit at home, you'll probably be only moderately pleased with the offerings here. I've been backyard q'ing for 12+ years. I wasn't blown away by any one meat on the sampler tray - but that being said nothing was outright bad or wrong. It was actually quite good. And let's face it, most Q in this area is garbage. So yeah. Whaddya gonna do?
TL;DR - the place is great; sides are amazing; bbq is tasty. But it all comes with a pricetag.
I loved this plave
Service was fantastic and fast. As well as the food was amazing and worth the drive. 10/10 would return.
Food was really good, service was exceptional. Drinks were delicious!
birthday dinner. we’re seated right inside doorway. not favorite spot. but again, the brisket was amazing!
Service was okay. I guess they were busy. Got better as time went on.
Texas Jack’s is one of our favorite restaurants in Arlington. I especially enjoy the brisket and Jalapeño Margaritas!
On our last visit we went for brunch. The Brisket Hash was excellent, as were the Mangosas (Mango Mimosas).
Service is always good. Highly recommend Texas Jack’s!
I went with a friend of mine and they have a great Covid-19 safe outdoor eating area with heaters to help with the cold. The food and service was amazing! Definitely would recommend :)
Was a quick meal that hit the spot
A go to BBQ restaurant. Service was superb. Food was excellent. Fun atmosphere. Kid friendly. Clean, safe, tables far enough apart. Would recommend for a good Saturday night family dinner.
Went at end of night and the meats were a bit dry. Overall flavor good and good sized portions.
Brisket done right. Great sides. Always great service.
Both the brisket and chicken were on the drier side. Many items served a la carte - a bit pricy.
Food was tasty but Luke warm. Not a great variety of sides. Bar b que sauce needs more options.
Excellent meats!! Unbelievably well cooked. Excellent service. Loved it.
Delicious food and good service.
Z BEST!! NO QUESTIONS ASKED!!
The food was absolutely fantastic
Highly recommend for brunch or group outing. Great drinks and food at a good price.
Very clean establishment. Staff were very very nice, felt like we received the royal treatment. I went with a party of 4 for a new year gathering. It was amazing. We will be returning again soon
Date night with wife
great place for lunch outdoors on a January Saturday
Fastest service I have ever received. Our main course meal came 5 minutes after our starter meal. We enjoyed the meal and music.
We loved it! Great food and awesome cocktails!
But barbecue chicken anywhere!
The food was good, a little expensive...we sat outside by the space heaters, it was a cold day, but the staff was accomodating, and made sure we were comfortable.
Great place, awesome sides, staff was excellent
I loved it. I would definitely return again. The food was great. I loved the wings. Service was great as well. Garrett, our server was attentive and provided great service. The drinks were great too. Definitely returning for brunch.
Great food & cocktails—-highly recommend. Stopped in for a smoked whiskey sour with my favorite Buffalo Trace bourbon and took home 2 pounds of brisket. Delicious! It just doesn’t get better than that.
Best BBQ in the DC region by far! Huevos rancheros with their perfect brisket and a spicy bloody mary - such an amazing combination! Can't give this place enough stars.
Peter, we truly appreciate every word!! Thank you so much!!
I pass this restaurant everyday! I was very impressed service was awesome. This is a definite hidden gem hiding in plain sight! Loved it
A good experience and satisfied my BBQ craving. That's it
THIS IS THE PLACE.
I was debating writing this review since the beauty of this place is that it is so lowkey, not loud, and there is absolutely no wait during happy hour ¿hours? (Which are 3-6)
Happy hour is ridiculously amazing. Meaning for $12 I was able to get a whole meal AND a tasty margarita, which by Arlington standards is unheard of.
The food is great and so is the service. Being able to do a happy hour outdoors during the time of COVID is a great plus.
My friend and I were so pleasantly surprised by this place that we will have to make this happy hour thing a reoccurring event!
Great outdoor dining for covid friend environment.
Food was as expected; we had been before and the quality was just as good as usual. The restaurant had tables well separated and some outside seating too (with heat lamps). The restaurant wasn't that crowded, but it looked like they were doing pretty swift takeout business. I appreciate the efforts they made to continue operations during the COVID times.
Great BBQ with a group of friends.
