Jake’s Boss BBQ

You know you’re in for a treat when the cheerful face behind the counter asks, “One Bomb, Two Bomb, or Three Bomb?” But don’t be overzealous—the Three Bomb hot sauce is no laughing matter. This Texas rib joint has won numerous awards in its previous incarnations (Jake’s Que-4-U, Jake & Earl’s) and the latest rendition does not disappoint. All the meats—”Oink”, “Moo”, and “Cluck”—are smoked to perfection and, as the menu promises, “B-B-B-Bad to the Bone.”
