Atmosphere is laid back. Casual. The bar-b-Q is great and the serving size is large. For the price and a great deal. RIght on moody street in the heart of Waltham. Great location and easy to get to.

I went this past Saturday night for the BBQ and stayed for the live blues @ 10pm and it was awesome!!!!! This is a close to the southern roadhouses that I used to frequent in the Delta several years back. Great vibe, grat food, great beer and great music. Thanks Jake!

Pros: BBQ, blues and beers

My office had a function at Jake's on the suggestion of a BBQ buddy. Everything was great; food, drink, service and the cool vibe added to the great time. I will be back on my own with my husband and the office has already booked a holiday function.

I don't consider myself a connoisseur of barbeque, but I do enjoy it quite a bit, now Jake's may not be 110% Authentic, but for what it is, it is amazing. I tend to get the North Carolina Pulled Pork Platter and it has never disappointed. The pork is lean and the North Carolina sauce gets into your nose with the vinegar so much that it will make your eyes and your mouth water. The portions are more than generous, even my hungry fiance takes home leftovers. The beer selection is pretty decent, with a lot of local beers as well as your standard brews. The prices are fair, but if you are having drinks, this will not be a cheap night out. I have had a mixed bag as far as service goes, in general, the women I have had are a little spacey, but not bad. There are TV's everywhere, so this is a great place to watch the game. The one drawback to Jake's is the lack of parking, there is limited street parking on Moody, and a public lot behind the restaurant, but on the weekends it is always full. Come hungry and you will not leave disappointed.

My boyfriend and I go here all the time and love it! It isnt as packed as a lot of the other good BBQ places around town so theres never a wait. We even tried the cholocate covered bacon there once! I wouldnt reccomend it, but the fried twinkies are to die for!

Let me start of with one of the worst dark beers that ever had. Then comes the confused waitress who thought she was working at Papa Gino's. What bother me the most that I ordered burnt ends and the waitress came back with some barbeque stew. The meat looked like it came out stew pot. It was horrible and I will never go there ever again. I suggest if you want real barbeque go accross the street to Bison County. My barbeque comes out better than that with a small weber grill and I will have my son help me out with the recipe. Oh by the way his name is not Jake, He goes by the nickname Baby Cue..

This is my first time writing a review, but I just feel this strong about Jake's. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is even better. Great service also. I think I know which server the last reviewer is referring to and he no longer works there. The staff is great and very knowledgable about southern bbq and hospitality. There is a celiac and kid's menu. This place is great for families large groups or dates. I highly recommend Jake's to anyone who enjoys large portions, great food and service!

I was there on a Tues night in mid-August. It was not busy. It took 10 minutes for someone to seat me. My order was taken promptly and my meal was brought to me in an acceptable time. However the service went down hill from there. I went half my meal with no drink. I finally got my server's attention by walking over to the bar and asking for him to get me another beer. I finished my meal and still no beer and no sign of my waiter. When I finally received the check, the second drink I never received was on the bill. After I requested the check it too well over 10 minutes for the waiter to bring it to me. Bad service!!
I ordered the Bubba combo of Memphis ribs, pulled pork, chicken and brisket. The brisket was dry and tasteless, the chicken also lacked flavor, ribs were tasty, but dry and fatty, the pulled pork was good.
If this place was down South, it would be the joke of the town!

Pros: Ample parking, good cask conditioned beer

Cons: Pricey, poor service, BBQ food is dry and lacks flavor

Very disappointing if you're hankering for some tasty BBQ. I have strong Texas roots and know the difference between great, average and poor BBQ. Frankly, Jake's brisket was poor--very dry, not a hint of smoky flavor to the meat (although it had the look of smoked meat)--it was the opposite of what brisket should be. The BBQ sauces were also poor--I tried house and sweet--neither had any body nor depth of flavor. Corn bread was very dry, and had no flavor. I'm sad to say the cafeteria where I work does a much better job at BBQ. There were some good points: Our waitress was very personable, the collard greens were excellent (my favorite part of the meal), baked beans were very good (maybe because they were baked beans, not BBQ beans?), cole slaw was fresh and crispy.

Pros: Collard greens, waitress

Cons: BBQ

Quite simply a great meal! The BBQ was properly smoky, moist and dry rubbed! I was raised in Texas but now call Boston home and this is authentic, real deal BBQ cooked by Yankees. Who knew Bostonians could cook BBQ!?! Great beer selection, blues music and very hot BBQutie servers. This Texan has food a new regular hang!!!!!

I ordered the "bubba" . This is a plate with samples of various BBQ. several ribs, two slices of brisket, 6 ounces of pulled pork, a chicken leg quarter, corn bread cole slaw. It's a lot to eat. I can barely eat it all. The brisket is very good, not excellent, but brisket is hard to make really moist. It's the biggest flaw that is hard to overcome. The rest is pretty much the same, very good not excellent. I am not a big fan of vinegary pulled pork. But it was cooked correctly and there were little bits of bark in it as it should be. I'm also not a big fan of BBQ chicken. I grill mine indirect at higher heat.
For my son he ordered chicken nuggets with fries. Now those nuggets rank up there with the best I've ever had. The fries were excellent too. His was served in this nice folded up race car sort of container. He loved it. This is great for kids! There is also a very nice vegetarian section. My wife loved the salad.

Pros: parking is good, in the back! don't try to park on moody street, otherwise you'll think this is a con

Cons: none

The Memphis Dry rub ribs were fantastic. On par with Blue Ribbon and East coast grill. The pulled pork was a bit oversauced (vinegar based sauced) but tender and still good. The chicken was suprisingly good. Juicy, with a nicely developed smoked flavor. Brisket was good.

Great BBQ!!!!! I've traveled the BBQ belt and must say that this ranks up there with the best. I got a "smoker tour" from the host a saw the awesome cooking machine that is all wood fired. Great beer selection and service too!

First off....the service was terrific! Our waitress was helpful and incredibly nice. But, the food was terrible. I got the pulled pork. It had no flavor and was dry. The cornbread was also dry. The amount of food you got for the price you had to pay was ridiculous. I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Jake and Earl's is very overrated. I had heard good things about it, but I was very disappointed with the BBQ. I had the pulled pork. It was overpriced and overcooked. The cornbread was dry.

Service was pleasant, but very slow for the restaurant not being crowded.

I would go here again, but only to meet some friends for a few beers - not for a meal.

I've traveled the BBQ belt and know real BBQ and Jake's serves the real deal! The BBQ and ribs were right on and the beer selection and blues music set the tone just right. All served up by what they call their BBQuties made for a great night!!!

The Kings Wings are THE BEST wings in the Boston area! Large meaty, moist and smoky pieces of poultry heaven. We tried the BBQ too and it was also a notch above everybody else in the Boston area. We also took advantage of the discounted movie tickets to the nearby Embassy Cinema nad saved $2.75 each.

This is SERIOUS BBQ! I gerw up in North Carolina and Jake's pulled pork is as good as the best back home. The service is great by Jake's BBQuties and a great beer selection.
