Friday is BBQ night back home. Found this place while heading back to my hotel. What caught my eye was BBQ lamb! On a sad note, they were out of the lamb, but the beef and the links were wonderful! Made sure I had room...More

I was recently nearby on a Red Cross deployment for the CA fires. I drove by this place on my way back to the shelter one eve. I turned around and went back to check it out. This is a totally unpretentious local joint ....More

We always make a point to stop at Pack-Jack's when we are in the Santa Rosa area. The smoked meat smell as you enter reminds you that this is true bar-b-que. Sliced beef is my favorite (tender and visible smoke ring) and my husband loves...More

I just happened by, and am so glad I made the weird turn into their parking lot off the highway (the turn is a little awful, but maybe only when traffic is heavier). The place is quiet and looks like a locals' kind of place....More

I'm sorry to say that we did not like the food. The pork ribs were fatty and the barbeque sauce was not good. We are from an area in the U.S. with great barbeque that has been smoked for days and has no fat left...More

Food was OK. I agree with others that the sauces tasted watered down and bland. Chicken had a delish smoky flavor. Very friendly owner. We were sitting at the outside picnic table and saw him giving tours of the ovens. He hollered over to us...More

After watching all of those BBQ shows on the cooking network, we were craving some good BBQ. Pack Jack's did not deliver. We could get over the major hole-in-the-wall atmosphere if the food would've made up for it, but it did not. I got the...More
