Jack Stack – Martin City
Decided to make a stop at Jack Stack in Martin City tonight around 5:00. There are a lot of good food options at Jack Stack, but I was there to try the brisket sandwich. Jack Stack is known as one of the “high end” barbecue places in town. I arrived at the right time and was seated right away. My waitress showed up instantly and I was never left alone long. I had three different waitresses come check on me in the time I was there. They all help each other out.
I ordered the brisket sandwich on a sesame seed bun. There is an option to order it on a hoagie bun, but I went with the sesame. It comes with two sides and I ordered coleslaw and fries. My waitress brought out the coleslaw before the sandwich which was a bit odd, but ok. The sandwich and fries arrived a few minutes later.
The sandwich is served with sauce on it. My waitress asked if I wanted more sauce and I declined. The meat was served very hot and was tender and flavorful. The meat was very juicy. I noticed they don’t really trim the fat on the slices of brisket, or if they do they leave a lot of the fat on the meat. This must help keep the meat juicy. I finished the sandwich and didn’t need any additional sauce. There wasn’t much sauce on the sandwich and to tell you the truth I didn’t really taste it much.
They have a fry seasoning in a shaker on the table and I used that on my fries. It was pretty good and made the fries very tasty.
My waitress asked if I wanted carrot cake and although I’m not a big dessert guy I do love carrot cake, so I decided to try it. She delivered it a couple minutes later. It might very well have been the best carrot cake I’ve ever had. It was excellent! I didn’t finish it and brought some of it home to eat tomorrow!
|The best carrot cake I’ve had in a while, maybe ever!|
The sandwich and two sides was $11.99. The carrot cake was $7.50, but well worth trying at least once!
A lot of people rave about Jack Stack, and for good reason, however I’ve had as good or better brisket at a couple of the other places I visited so far and I’ve still got a lot more to go.
This has been a lot of fun so far. I’ve got 10 down, so at least I finally hit double digits!
