We were looking for a restaurant near Barrington Stage in downtown Pittsfield. I love ribs and barbecue. But I'm reluctant to order them up north because they just don't measure up to what I've been spoiled on in Tennessee where I used to travel frequently for business. I was pleasantly surprised by Mad Jacks. The baby backs were to die for. Great flavor and the meat just slid off the bone. The barbecue baked beans were delicious but a little on the hard side ( al dente). Tender brisket. Good sauces. While this isn't the healthiest food in the world, it's a wonderful indulgence and we're going back again. The service was good, too. And, did I mention the fabulous cornbread. Second to none. Mad Jacks could hold its own if it was located in Memphis. And, the prices won't break your wallet.
