I like Jay's Bar-B-Q meats. They are not overly smoky flavored and their sauce is different from most - a little vinegar, but not overpowering. Their bread is some of my favorite for poor boys or sandwiches. I usually get a chopped beef and the meat is lean and well seasoned. I'm not a huge fan of their sides. The... More

I went for dinner and was seated and served immediately. I ordered a full slab of ribs along with fries and baked beans. The fries and baked beans were hot and satisfactory but the ribs were luke warm at best. I had them heated up for me but by the time they returned my fries and beans were eaten so... More

I'm a BBQ fiend and when I smoke butts, its 8-16 at a time, so I consider myself educated enough to have an opinion. This pace has lasted the test of time been in business over 30 years. The younger generation has lost its passion. BBQ ribs and pulled pork were mediocre and WAYYYY over priced. (you can get away... More

Ate lunch here with some coworkers. They had fast, accurate service and most importantly Great food and good prices. I had the cheeseburger and sweet potato fries and my coworkers each had the BBQ pulled pork and fries. We were all happy with our food.

I have been eating Jays on Sherwood Forrest Blvd for 30 years and I almost always get they same thing. Sliced beef poboy and cole slaw. I've never eaten the ribs or brisket or chicken so I can't weigh in on them, but I can say that the sauce is the boss. I'm gonna say it's an acquired taste because... More

I really like the smoked turkey and ham on the chef salad. The ranch dressing is high in calories so I don't use a lot. The lettuce and cucumbers were fresh and crunchy.

I learned years ago that there are many ways to prepare BBQ, ranging from the fantastic sliced brisket in Texas where I grew, the equally fantastic Kentucky pulled pork and mutton, the excellent wet or dry rub BBQ in Memphis, to so many excellent barbecues around the U.S. One thing that is common to all barbecue is flavorful, reasonably tender...
