It's well worth stopping for lunch at Jack Jordan's Bar-B-Cue. I thought their sausage was pretty good.

Have you ever bite into brisket that was tough & not tasty?? Well I have at some bar b q places I have been. But you won't find this problem at Jack Jordan's!! I love their meats because they are tender, tasty, and just the right amount of juicy!! On their veggies they are not bad but not fantastic either.... More

Some of the other places cost less but the quality of this food is So much better. The meat is lean and a great BBQ receipe sauce. I have tried the food at lunch and dinner and both times it was great. I have also had their food catered at an open house event. We like the food and the... More

Stopped for a quick lunch. Just a sandwich, no extras. I wanted something other than a burger or a taco so I stopped at Jack Jordan's. The BBQ turkey was outstanding! And their BBQ sauce was such a compliment to the meat. The atmosphere was clean and friendly. Can't wait to go back and have a taste of everything!

We went with family during a trip. Don't let the location or shape of the building fool you. They are cooking serious BBQ here!!! Ordering was a little intimidating because there weren't any signs or menus. It cost $50 for three of us. The food was very good. The brisket was extremely tender and the jalapeño cheese sausage was to... More

Jack Jordan's has been around in Odessa I think about 60 some odd years. The reason is because they are good. This is one of the established places in west Texas to visit. Now the bread isn't anything to write home about but the meat is why you'd be here anyway. The slow cooked meats come through in the flavor... More

Really good "Old School BBQ" smoked to perfection. The brisket is smoked just right and really tender. Have eaten here many times and the fare is always good.

Great BBQ! The Thursday and Friday special is too good to believe. The kitchen looks clean, the dining area is spotless, the people are friendly and efficient, the food is GREAT, and the price is right. What more could you ask for?
