I stopped here while on travel for training. The service was great. Nice atmosphere. I had the rib and pulled pork combo. It was good but I didn't care much for the sauce. The sides were very good. I would eat here again.

I've had plenty of BBQ in my life and this was the worst. The pulled pork was over cooked and too salty. The sides weren't good either. The coleslaw made me sick. I would not recommend or return to this restaurant.

Looking for BBQ, 3 of us decided to give Madd Jacks a try. The baby back ribs were excellent and the sliced pork was the leanest I have ever been served. The baked beans and cole slaw were very tasty and portions were large. We...More

Stopped here for the first time looking for a good bbq. We were thoroughly surprised and truly enjoyed the food and service. I had the rib special and Mike had pulled pork. Both were terrific as were the sides. Lots of food! Sauces are very...More

Yes they do allow you to do it. They even have an ABC store in the same location where you can go to purchase your adult beverages as required.
