I have been eating at JJ's for along time. It use to be good but, now the meat is dry and the beans are not the same they use to have the best in town. I haven't went for the steaks cause I don't like the way they look when they show it on tv looks burnt.
I read the review and went to eat there on a Friday night and got a steak with all the trimmings, I was so upset about what i had just paid $50.00 for, my husbands steak was overcooked and mine was overcooked and FULL OF FAT, half my steak was fat, I was not every happy about it.
Dont listen to Lizard, this is very good BB_Q but go on friday nights and get the most awesome steak you wil ever sink your teeth into. Best in South Ark or North LA and that includes the big chain steak houses, I wish he served it more than Friday nights and that he had another location that was bigger for eating in and parking!!
The service is poor and the manager/owner is rude and a real jerk. He also acts like a racist, and I am a southern Caucasian so this is not just my imagination. This man has the manners and personality of a goat. The ribs are greasy and fatty and they just are not good. The only reason the ribs are tender is because the ribs have so much fat on them. Where's the meat! The chopped beef is good and very delicious and the sauces are always on the side. The blooming onion used to be a favorite of mine, but it has become soggy and greasy and is not crispy like they used to be. Some People in El Dorado that have business have the tendency to think they do not have to be friendly to their customers and will never lose business because this is a small town. Well they are wrong and customers like me will never go to these establishments again.
In my opinion, J J's BBQ is the worst BBQ I've ever had. I'm a local and I would hate for someone to get their hopes up for great BBQ and go to JJ's..You will greatly disappointed! Go to Backyard BBQ in Magnolia. It's not that far from El dorado and you will thank yourself. I'm amazed how they keep their doors open.
