If you are dying for barbecue this is an option, but it is pretty average. Sides were better than meat. Service was friendly and helpful.

My husband and I decided to have a snack here because neither of us was hungry enough for a full meal. On a friend's recommendation, we tried the baked potato with pork. It came with a small salad. We split everything. For the almost $11.00 price, we expected there would actually be a decent portion of pork on top. That... More

My wife & I had GJ one evening, and the next night we were deciding on where to dine. After thinking long and hard, we chose...Grumpy Jake's again! Sure, we had wanted to try a new place, but GJ's awesome food kept coming to mind during our decision making. My wife went with pulled pork, while this time I had... More

Just have had the fish.....it's ok, sides are acceptable, did not like the coleslaw, it's very hard to take M-I-L w/walker up the narrow incline, next time will pass......service was ok.

Nice resturant with a wide menu selection. I had BBQ Brisket had a nice flavor, but lacked in presentation. It was chopped, not sliced. Sides were well prepared. Service was acceptable, but still needs improvement. Next tine will probably stay away fromn BBQ and try the fish.

I go to restaurants for food I can't make at home and Grumpy Jakes is my favorite BBQ place. It is consistently good food, great sauce and very friendly service. Overall always a good experience.

We looked for a place to take a friend to dinner in the Show Low area. A quick scan of Trip Advisor reviews revealed that Jake's had the fewest negative ratings and comments. We were not disappointed. Their smoked 1/2 chicken was delicious, as were the pork and baked potato special. Service was friendly and professional. Meals were hot and... More
