Dear Jake - Please forgive us for whatever you think we did to you and get back to normal. For the past year+ you stopped caring about the food you serve us. You stopped caring about the toppings you use. You stopped caring about the Corn Bread you serve. Why?! What did we do to you? The ribs are over-cooked,... More

It seems every time I have ordered from Jakes, my menu was out of date, regarding the prices. I remember when SuSu owned Jakes, you got nice sized sides in pint containers. She knew me by voice, and I always found a surprise of extra cornbread, or some other goodie that I did not ask for. She made frequent customers... More

I don't know who rated this place as good. It was far from it. I had the pulled chicken which was not pulled just broken off. Pulled chicken is taken off the bone in shreds not chunks and soaked in BBQ sauce. My sauce was on the side Really?? The sauce tasted like the one that comes in that 2... More

I'm a Brooklyn native and have been going to Jake's for many years. I remember when Jake's BBQ was almost alone on Colombia St, at the end of the dark period of Red Hook. This was a great reason to come down to the neighborhood and have some great BBQ when it was a scarce commodity in Brooklyn. I remember... More

We got delivery sent right to the hotel. Ordered the pork, chops mac and cheese and sweet potato fries for me. Ribs, baked beans and mac and cheese for my husband. The sweet potato fries were slightly under done but the other items more than made up for it. The chops were perfectly cooked, the corn bread delicious. My husband... More

Ran into this place after a trip to Ikea. This place has been in business for over 10 years. Cornbread, Pork ribs, 2 sides (cole slaw and sweet potato fries) and a mac & cheese entree. Too stuffed. The staff was extremely nice. Even had a sampling of honey roasted pecans at the end of the meal. Seems they do... More
