Iam a big fan of bbq. From Maine to Texas, South Carolina to California I have had many happy experiences. Black Jaxx adds to that list. I had a very tasty brisket sandwich. It was well prepared and good size portion. Paired with very tasty coleslaw and potato salad. A bit expensive but this is Alaska which has to always... More

As coming from Europe we don't know bbq very well but we love it by now for sure! They're smoked meat is definately not beatable as their slogan says! Their ribs with bbq sauce coming on the side is probably the best we've ever have eaten! Their beans are delicious! We loved the brisket and pulled pork sandwich as well... More

While fishing on the Kenai Peninsula over Memorial Day Weekend we discovered what has to be the best barbecue stand in Alaska! Black Jaxx is operated by a snowbird couple from the Tulsa area. It was our first visit and we were treated to a sample of the ribs. I'm not easily impressed, but the first bite knocked my socks... More

Outside of my spouse's excellent barbeque, this is the best I have had eating out in years. We each got the two-meat lunch and there were plenty of leftovers. Black Jaxx is only open during the summer, and although they list their closing time as 6:30 pm, they start to sell out by 2:00 pm most days. Get there early... More

The best ribs and sides ever it may seem pricey but the amount of food you get in large two days wiorrh easy. If you are planning on doing the peninsula this summer this is a must do spot. People are friendly food is outrageous!

I come from Texas so this style of brisket, ribs, sausage and chicken is right up my alley. The cole slaw, pure southern style and the baked beans are to die for. The tenderness and that crazy "gotta have it" sauce that he makes is mouth watering. You can't beat the friendliness and that fair prices for this lip licking... More
