    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!

    Overall, the food was decent. But the service was awful. Our main course came out well before our appetizer and when we reported this, we were told “the kitchen was busy” no apology or acknowledgment. The chips in the appetizer were cold and stale. Our server disappeared for gaps of time and our beverages were never refilled. While Texas Jacks is walking distance from my home, I don’t see returning.

    Went for Father’s Day. Very good food and service. Only downside was it was a bit loud. Probably better when not a special occasion or if it is nice enough to sit outside.

    We went for Father’s Day and had a fantastic time. Everything was fabulous and the food came out so fast! My only complaint is that my drink was not as flavorful as I would like it to be (it was a spicy margarita). Otherwise, I’m a big fan and would love to go again.

    Great Texas barbecue! Small Parking lot a bonus at midday. Met friends where we could have interesting drinks and good food. This was the best barbecue we’ve had in the area. It’s a great spot for lunch when its less crowded and service was great. We intended to sit outside on the patio but they were getting all their deliveries so trucks were idling and unloading in front of her patio so we sat inside. Checked out the happy hour and planning another meetup there.

    For starters, the hostess in front house was so nice! Very friendly and inviting. Our waiter Ben J was so awesome! He was very attentive, very friendly, and tended to put every need. The meal was fire - this is coming from someone who doesn’t even like barbecue. The chicken tacos with the spicy jacks bbq sauce? To die for. The chicken was so tender and juicy. The ribs, the brisket? Fall apart. Seasoned to perrrfection. What the heck is that butterscotch root beer? Magic in the mouth? The sorcery! I will definitely be back!

    We ate outdoors and unfortunately, both the traffic noise and the lack of staff attention were challenging this visit. I think they are understaffed at the moment, and since it was quite busy, the staff was stretched thin. The sausages are terrific, the slaw and potato salad quite good. I love the bun that comes with the sandwiches; however, the brisket sandwich is so stuffed that it ends up being a knife and fork sandwich. Also, this time the brisket was its usual fantastic flavor but quite fatty.
