Jake's is a western themed restaurant with some amazing food. This visit I had their BBQ ribs & pulled pork from their combo platter coupled with mac & cheese and coleslaw and it was delicious! I also ordered their Hog Wild Tater Skins (potato skins...More

Jakes is easy to miss as it is tucked away in a shopping plaza and hard to spot from the outside. While I would say that the BBQ is not exceptional it is still very good and the helpings are very generous. I would prefer...More

We are from Texas, the home of great BBQ, so we were a little worried about going to get BBQ in Washington... but surprise! This place had great BBQ, the pulled pork especially, and we loved it! The portions were large and prices were reasonable....More

Great western decor with saddles and knick knacks. Had pulled salad-very fresh and tender pulled pork. Good menu selection but didn't have hunger to enjoy it all. Would have also liked to try their boneless chicken wings. Love how they serve beer in mason jar...More

The food is good but a bit pricey. Service is good as well. We've always had attentive wait staff. We come here often and had a birthday party catered by them.More

This is what most people I know say about Jake's. The food is really good but you better be ready to wait a long time for it! Fun atmosphere though, and friendly staff. I'll probably go back again, seeing as I live in Lynden.More

...because that's what I turned into when I came to this place the first time. Their Pulled Pork can knock heads with my uncle's recipe back in Texas, so that should say something! Also their potato skins and mac n' cheese are superb!! Very clean...More

Really liked the cool ranch chips and the sausage was great. Mac and cheese was a little bland and they confirmed what I thought, big hit with younger children but not most adults. Worth the visitMore
