Big Jake's is a good departure from all the other restaurants in Hope which basically consist of chain restaurants and Mexican fare. The food's pretty good, prices could be a little cheaper, and the atmosphere is impersonal kind of like sitting in a McDonald's. You have to get your own refills, bus your own table, which I can deal with.... More

The food was warm, flavorful, and the staff was polite. The best part of my dinner was the Brisket, it was so good. Can't wait to go back, especially knowing that because I'm eating out, I won't have to do the dishes for dinner.

So I'm a bit biased when it comes to BBQ. I'm not a fan of a lot of sauce. To me, all that sauce is there to hide something. Meat should have a tasty dry rub and a good smoke flavor. I didn't care for this style of BBQ which wasn't very smoky and had too much sauce. We had... More

I often travel through this area, and usually have to resort to fast food. Not this time! Big Jake's is also a Fried Pie Shop, and was easy to locate due to signage. Large establishment, plenty of parking, and it has drive-through service. They were fairly busy, but there was no waiting to place my order at the counter. I... More

Nice parking lot and clean restaurant with upbeat young employee's. 3 kinds of BBQ sauce on a bar for you to pick to fit your taste, also they have pickles and sliced onion on the customer self serve bar with a pot of complimentary pinto beans. Several items on menu and all we had was enjoyable.

Better than average BarBQue, large portions. My preference is the chopped beef sandwich with Cole slaw (I like it on the sandwich), ribs, sweet potato fries. If the baked potatoes are fresh they are good loaded with chopped BarBQue, cheese, butter, sour cream, etc. Pinto beans are unlimited & free if you dine in. And don't forget the fried pies-... More

I ordered a baked potato and requested it be topped with butter, coleslaw and beans, no meat. They rub the potato with some kind of salty/peppery rub and it tasted like it was baked in a BBQ oven. Delicious flavor. My guest had the baked potato topped with everything. Its was good too. I didn't see a loaded baked potato... More
