Today we’re going to make a stop at Jack’s Bar-B-Q in Oklahoma City. After returning to the house we were staying at after Kelly’s and Jake’s wedding we tried to decide where to eat. I had spotted Jack’s Bar-B-Q on the way to the church so I was already curious. Once the number dwindled down to just me, Tammy, my sister Phyllis and Mom I stepped up to the plate and suggested this spot. Phyllis was interested in how we do these reviews so she was in. Mom didn’t really care as long as there was supper involved. And Tammy is my trooper, she’s always ready to try a new spot. So off we went. Before I get into the restaurant allow me to introduce you to a couple of really awesome places in Oklahoma City.
Places to Visit In Oklahoma City:
First and probably foremost, everyone should visit the Oklahoma City National Memorial. Tammy and I visited here several years ago. This is a deeply moving memorial to those killed and those who survived the Federal Building bombing on April 19, 1995. There is a Memorial Park and a Memorial Museum here. Please check out the website set up just for this memorial and all the activities that are offered there. Find them at: https://oklahomacitynationalmemorial.org/
Next on our list of must visits would have to be the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. This is an awesome museum with a very wide variety of things to offer. Tammy and I spent over 5 hours here and I’m sure we didn’t see everything. They had features on cowboy life of course but also went into the western history. Along with that they had many displays about rodeo life, western movies, and western TV shows. Lots of original outfits worn and plenty of just really cool stuff. They also have a very nice store set up. And there is a lot of art work and paintings that are available for purchase. If you visit Oklahoma City I highly recommend allowing time to give the Cowboy Museum a visit. Check out their website at: https://nationalcowboymuseum.org/
Now on to Jack’s.
Where is Jack’s Bar-B-Q?
Jack’s Bar-B-Q is located in Oklahoma City and is also on Historic Rt. 66. Their street address is actually on NW 39th Street. They’re not too far off of Interstate 44 near the Bethany area. They seem to be kind of on the North West side of the city. GPS should hook you right up.
The Restaurant and Staff:
The restaurant has a medium size dining room, well-kept and clean. The website for Jack’s Bar-B-Q says that they have been serving bbq since 1963 on
Rt. 66. We came in towards the end of their day and everyone still managed a smile and some friendly conversation with us. They were very helpful with our choices. You’ll understand when I get to the food. We really enjoyed talking with them during our visit. The décor is pretty simple. It just looks like an older style restaurant with a few pictures and a couple of Coke signs hanging around to lighten the place up. It was a nice little spot.
So let’s talk food. Shall we?
Our Choices at Jack’s Bar-B-Q:
Let me just get this out of the way. Like I said we arrived late in the day close to closing time. And it turns out that they were out of Pulled Pork, go
figure. Well this didn’t stop us.
I went with a Sliced Brisket Dinner with Slaw and Baked Beans. The beans were good. They had chunks of brisket in them for seasoning. The slaw was very good, almost like pickled cabbage. It was made with large shreds of cabbage. This slaw was really different and very good.
The brisket had a good smoke and beef flavor along with a nice smokering. It was moist and tender along with having some burnt ends mixed in.
Tammy ordered a Sliced Brisket Dinner with Broccoli Salad and Mac & Cheese. She liked her broccoli salad which had some type of mustard base to it. Another mark for being different, at least it is for us Easterners. Her mac & cheese was good but did not make the great mark.
Phyllis chose a Smoked Turkey Dinner with Potato Salad and Slaw. I tried her turkey and it had a really good smoke flavor. The turkey was also nice and tender. She enjoyed her potato salad.
Finally, Mom went with a Chopped Brisket Sandwich. Her brisket was chopped into small cubes but was not real fine. It looked pretty good piled up on that large bun.
We all enjoyed our meals at Jack’s Bar-B-Q.
Well thinking back on Jack’s Bar-B-Q my last thought is that I really wish they weren’t out of Pork. I’ll bet it’s pretty good too. We enjoyed the restaurant and the people. You can’t ask for much more than that. And my sister, Phyllis, got to help us out and see how we operate when we visit restaurants. It was a nice end to an awesome day.
Now For Your Thoughts:
Since we didn’t get to try the Pulled Pork at Jack’s Bar-B-Q we need for someone else to fill everyone in on it. If you paid a visit, how was it? We’d love to hear about your experience there. Drop some comments off and let me get them posted for everyone to see.
What do you regulars think?
So how about the regulars? Tell us what you think. You can fill us in on so much more that any of us can see in one visit. What are the people like? How’s the rest of the menu? Someone please tell us about the pork.
I look forward to hearing from you.
