JP's most popular spot for barbecue attracts a diverse clientele. – In Short
Located along a heavily commercial stretch of Washington St., Jake's provides locals with an affordable, casual spot to sample award-winning barbecue. A menu of familiar favorites like Carolina-style pulled pork and the stewed burnt ends of smoky brisket is rounded out by straightforward sides like sweet baked beans and creamy coleslaw.
One of the Best in Town – I've eaten my way through the south, and while no BBQ jernt up here compares to Dixie's best (just like you can't get good chowda outside of New England), Jake's is one of three places (the other two being the Blue Ribbon in Newton and Uncle Pete's in Eastie) that comes damn close. Tasty tender ribs, great sides, wide variety, and the best desserts of any BBQ place in town. Friendly service, good prices, and a no-BS dining room.
Great Ribs, no waiting – Jake's is one of those places you dream about. The decor is minimal, the help is friendly and the ribs are wonderfully flavored and smoky.
It is a REAL joint. No manufactured atmosphere here.
