The restaurant is nice and pretty clean inside; unfortunately, the staff and the food could be better. We stopped here to eat on a Tuesday, of which I was surprised, because many BBQ places aren't opened until the weekend. We were a little hesitant, as the ratings weren't real high, and the reviews weren't real good, but the other restaurants... More

My husband and I really like the way they do their bbq. We go frequently and have had a yummy and positive experience every single time. You order at a counter and they will bring it out to you in a basket. You serve yourself for drinks, condiments, and plastic-ware. We have never had a problem finding a place to... More

This is the only franchise of a former restaurant owner - a world championship BBQer. Brisket is my favorite BBQ choice so I ordered the sandwich (only available on Thursday). It was great. The meat was tender and flavorful (without sauce). As a side. I had the Brunswick Stew, It was good, not great. I have had better in other... More

If you want to eat some supper that'll make a real man out of you, you are considering the right place! I walked in this place like a redneck hippie that smokes meat instead of joints and order me up a big plate of barbecue! I grabbed that first pile of pulled pork and rung it out like a washcloth...

Given Myron Mixon is a Pit Master champion, I expected more. The food was acceptable, but the ribs and the pork had very little smoke flavor. Perhaps the establishment doesn't smoke their meats. I wouldn't make a purposeful trip back. But, someone else might prefer this style of bbq.

Was with a lunch group ordering various items. I ordered a pulled pork sandwich as did several people at the table. No matter how much sauce I put on it it was still dry and that is what everyone said. The potato salad was good but they were out of coleslaw my first pick. Overall the group said we will... More

I've visited Jack's Old South BBQ a good few times since I learned about it. It is an hour drive from home but definitely worth the trip. The pulled pork is splendid with a nice hickory flavor, very tender, moist and a dash of seasoning. The hickory BBQ sauce is my go-to every time I get a plate. Jack's Old... More

My pork was in a small side item container and it was dry as well .. The stew was too saucy.. and a dry, cold slider bun.. DISAPPOINTED, NEVER... More

We were in Atlanta and seen Jacks Old South was only 40 minuets away from us. Service was fast and friendly. The ribs were delicious and perfectly smoked. I really like the peach glaze on the ribs. There sauces were also good. Prices were fair. I will return next time were in the area.
