The next time you're craving great BBQ ribs, you won't have to travel far! A new article from Love Food says that nobody in Iowa does ribs better than Jimmy Jack's Rib Shack in Iowa City!

Located at 1940 Lower Muscatine Road, Jimmy Jack's is known for their award-winning BBQ and BBQ sauces. According to the article from Love Food:

"It’s the barbecue sauce at Jimmy Jack’s Rib Shack that takes already delicious slow-smoked St. Louis racks and makes them something truly special. If you like smoky flavors, go for Cowboy (sweet and smoky); if you like spicy foods, try Chicago Fire (sweet and hot); and if you like honey mustard, check out the Carolina Mustard (honey mustard, but better)."

In addition to their delicious ribs, Jimmy Jack's is also beloved for their brisket, pulled pork, wings, cornbread, and mac & cheese. Other menu items include salads, burgers, smoked chicken, and Italian sausage.

Jimmy Jack's Rib Shack has a 4.6-star rating on Google thanks to more than 1,100 reviews from customers! It's open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday & Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. You can check out the full menu HERE.
