We sat outside on a beautiful fall evening. I got the kale salad with brisket that melted in my mouth! I would also recommend the baked beans!
The only complaint I have is the price of the food. As a true Texan, one never pays this much for good Bar B Q. Now granted, I have to consider the fact we are not in Texas, but even considering that, it is a bit steep for VA. Food is delicious however and the staff are great. I brought five business colleagues with me there , all for the first time, and they agreed hands down it was the best meal they have had on their entire trip! Thanks for making my decision to dine there brilliant.
The food is consistently good. Service is outstanding. A very enjoyable experience
We headed over for breakfast to what had been an Arlington landmark. My omelette with brisket was very flavorful. The dish did not have a side, so no too filling. My partner had the brisket in the huevos. Unfortunately his brisket had a fair amount of fatty pieces. The winner was my sister’s brisket hash with eggs. Really nice flavors. The restaurant is open with a basic simple interior which can get noisy. Post-COVID they added a fair amount of outside dining, which makes the parking lot very small and tight.
Very nice patio arrangement with good capacity. Food was good as usual and service was attentive.
This place is a neighborhood gem!! Great food, service....
Great happy hour deals!! Our server was really kind as well. Food is always great
Excellent food and service. Love the barbecue chicken.
Wonderful sampler platter, seating outside. Very nice environment with attentive service. Wish chicken had been more tender but pulled pork was out of this world. Banana pudding was just right.
Food was very impressive at all. Wings were ok, pulled pork was below average, chicken sandwich needed seasoning, and greens didn’t have much flavor. Cornbread and French fries were the best part.
Ambiance outside was beautiful, but that didn’t compensate for the disappointing food.
Great food and lots of outdoor seating!
As one can see from our profile, we truly enjoy visiting Texas Jacks. If I really want to be critical, the service was a bit slow. However, it is a great place to take friends to.
Giddy Yup! No need to worry about dead air with your guest --- food arrives asap when you order! First time visit and Texas Jacks delivered. Ribs fell off the bone, brisket sandwich (they are known for their brisket, says our waiter) tasty and tender. Good sauce too. Collard greens unique with burnt ends included. Go for the large size sides --- only $2 more (also says our waiter) and you can take home (we did). Next time we will order the brisket egg rolls (suggestion from our waiter). Obviously waiter Garrett was extremely helpful, cheerful, and efficient. His recommendations were spot on. Now our fav new place to go.
Texas Jack's was fantastic! The outdoor seating was spacious, quiet, and shady. We all loved our meals. Mom was craving ribs and found them to be delicious. I got the Brisket Benedict and it was amazing. Our server was attentive and the dessert of apple pie was a great finish. Highly recommend.
We ate burgers, which were good, but I think next time I will aim for the brisket sandwich. The brisket at Texas Jack's is the real thing, and it's hard to think of ordering anything else in normal circumstances because it is just that good (and I'm from Kansas City!)
This is one of our favorite restaurants within walking distance of our house, both for brunch and dinner. The food is outstanding, and the outdoor seating is spectacular. The staff is always friendly and super helpful. We love Texas Jack's!
Neighborhood gem! Gold standard service, outstanding BBQ, and vibrant/fun atmosphere.
Outdoor seating is great here (assuming it’s not too hot).
Great outdoor patio and delicious food!
It’s a good gluten free option:)
Good food and great service like always.
The brisket hash was great!
Ribs were really, really dry. Brisket and pulled pork were nice
Awesome!!! Great menu. Great staff. Love it!
Stopped by for brunch. Promptly greeted by the host and given waters from another bar tender. Hailey, our server, came over quickly and asked if we wanted to start with a cocktail. She took our orders shortly after returning with our drinks. Food was quick, warm, and filling. Again, Hailey was friendly, attentive, and bubbly.
We had reservations at an outdoor table but moved inside when the rain started. Indoor tables were well spaced and the wait staff was exceptionally kind and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our meal and the time together.
Best Austin-style bbq in the DC area. Go for the brisket.
Fantastic BBQ. The brisket was done perfectly. Pulled pork sandwich was great. Good, smokey flavor. Loved the brussel sprouts. Mac n cheese, beans and cornbread. Terrific service and ambiance.
Delicious food, very good drinks, and a solid dessert (not pictured because it was consumed fairly quickly) the banana pudding.
Must see BBQ place in the DMV. Excellent food and drinks.
Decent food, fair prices, great cocktails and service
After the heavy rain, halfway through our meal, we started getting water dripping from the ceiling. It wasn’t a lot, but enough to bother us, so we informed the management. The manager did nothing. All tables were full, so I’m sure the manager couldn’t move us anyway. However, there was NO apology and NO discounts applied on the final bill when there was an inconvenience reported clearly.
Guess I am more of a Carolina BBQ fan - as the meat was very heavily smoked and hard to taste the meat for the smoke taste. Service was great and side dishes were inventive and delicious. Wonderful desserts also!
I ordered half rack of ribs and they were HUGE! The flavor was awesome and they come with a side of BBQ sauce. The brisket was tasty and tender.
One of our go-tos for great food, drinks, service, and atmosphere. (And as a born and raised southerner…this is some of the best bbq in town!)
Can't stop returning to TJ's. They've expanded their outdoor seating since 2020 and that includes ample umbrellas to help with the heat. Always enjoy the meats, their sides and apps are top-notch.
Friendly service, food arrived quickly and was delicious.
After a long day of sightseeing my friends and I were very hungry. A few of us are from Texas and wanted some authentic barbecue. This was the perfect place! The atmosphere was perfect and you could smell the wood as soon as you walked in. The staff was wonderful and the food was excellent it was authentic BBQ at its best. We each chose the sampler platter and chose a number of the size to share. And there’s a little something for everyone. Their portions were huge and very tasty.
Best bbq in the DMV
The food was excellent, and it came out very quickly. Service was great as well.
