Excellent food, convenient drive through! The chicken is excellent! The beef is good too, but the chicken is outstanding! The fried okra is also some of the best around. Mac n cheese and baked potato won't disappoint.

July 2017 we had Big Jake's BBQ cater food for our family reunion. The family loved the food. Being a vegetarian, I enjoyed the fried okra, bake potato, cold slaw and fried peach pie.

Popped in for a quick bite. Food a little disappointing. Seemed popular with a few locals. Counter service staff friendly.

The brisket was awesome with good bark on it. The people were very friendly. A real homey atmosphere. Fried pies too!!

There aren't many places to eat in Hope but Jake's is a good choice. Big plates in a variety of smoked meats. A bonus: by the barbque sauces was a big crockpot of some of the best pinto bean soup I've ever had! Peppery and...More
