My wife and I popped into Jax BBQ on a Saturday afternoon just before they closed the kitchen at 4pm for a one hour break between lunch and dinner service (the bar stays open though).
We started with a beer and one of their frozen margaritas.
Speaking of drinks, they have a great every day happy hour from 3pm-6pm, where both the beer and margaritas are just $5.
We started with gator and crawfish fritters. Both were great.
The Memphis style ribs were excellent. We started with a few.
But then we ordered a lot more because they were so good.
Not a lot of people know that ribs aren’t supposed to “fall off the bone.” They’re supposed to have a bite. When you chomp on a rib, your teeth should make a mark. Like this:
We also tried a burger. This was overcooked, but the caramelized onions, truffle ketchup and cheddar cheese definitely added that juiciness back in, no problem. Just make sure you order medium rare.
We finished off with a slice of Mississippi mud pie for dessert. This was like a super soft brownie cake. Awesome.
