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.
It was my sons 16th birthday and Texas Jacks was the PERFECT spot. The food was delicious and the waitstaff was attentive and pleasant. Highly recommend this restaurant. The brisket was my fav. We will definitely be back.
If you can’t smoke your own meat, this is the place. The brisket egg rolls are divine. The moist brisket is beyond great. Nothing fancy, just great food.
One of DC's best BBQ. Probably Arlington's best.
Iv been a few times now and I have not had a bad meal and cocktail yet! Everything is always so delicious and the staff are all very friendly and welcoming.
Best barbecue around. Great selection of spirits too pair with whatever you order. I love the spicy sauce that comes with the meats. Great presentation and service is excellent.
It’s was nice to eat Texas food outside of Texas. My family and I really enjoyed it. My kids even suggested to go back and eat at this place for the remaining of our family vacation in Washington DC. Coming from Texas or not, it’s a definitely recommended place to eat at y all.
About the noise, we noticed a bar in the other room next to eating room where we were, so we figured that s where the noise was coming from. Otherwise, it’s a quiet place. We were there on Thursday @ 4:30pm.
Texas Jack’s is a lot of fun and the food is marvelous with a lot of interesting twists and surprises on the menu. BBQ is always good but Texas Jack’s takes it up several notches!
The Customer Service and food were great. She assisted us with ordering for our first time there and showed patience.
Website says complementary parking and wasn’t available
The food and drinks were great and for a great price!
If you get anything at this place, please get their brisket. WOW
I made a note on reservation that we were celebrating an engagement and I called to let them know and asked them to send over someone sort of dessert for a celebration. A chocolate cake dessert and we had zero acknowledgment of the occasion and no dessert was sent over. That’s really gross considering I contacted the restaurant by phone and also made a note. I will make sure that we do not recommend this place or ever come again:
I could eat Texas Jacks daily. Great happy hour, amazing food. If you don’t get something with Brisket you’re doing it wrong. Nachos are out of this world!
The food was really good and came out very quick!! I felt that the food and drinks I got were well worth the $20.
