Jake’s BBQ

Mouth watering BBQ in Rapid City


Rapid City now has options when it comes to enjoying barbeque.  After Art’s closed there really weren’t any choices.  Then Dickey’s opened and now we even have a Famous Dave’s.  But, have you checked out Jake’s BBQ?Jakes BBQ Rapid City SD


If the rest of the barbeque is as good as my first visit – we are all in for a treat.  I tried a 3-meat plate with beans and slaw.  Wow, it was all good and the chicken was great (I usually don’t like barbequed chicken).  They also have a Friday night smoked prime rib that looks amazing and I’ve yet to try their ribs.


I believe they first set up shop at the corner of Highways 44 and 385.  I really wanted to stop then, but never did.  I finally visited the East North Street location and plan on many future visits.

Just watch for the sign right before the curve that takes you down to Prairie Market.  They have to-go containers, so you can grab some great BBQ on the way home from work.


Have you tried Jake’s yet?

    My son, Daryl, takes pride in his restaurant and especially the food that he prepares for his customers. Food has always been a passion for him and it shows in every plate that he prepares. Jake’s BBQ is a must restaurant to go eat at and it will keep you coming back for more. So stop by to meet Daryl and his staff and enjoy some great barbecue. You will not be disappointed.

    I love Jake’s! They’re BBQ is far better than Dickie’s trash. I can vouch for the prime rib and ribs – they’re fantastic! Even my kids love going there, in fact on more than one occasion we’ve ordered from Jake’s to feed birthday party goers at the request of the kids. Yum!

    JAKE’S BBQ rocks. Once you have eaten there, you won’t want to eat at any other BBQ place. Daryl and his crew are so awesome. The food is terrific. So give it a try. I really believe you will like it alot.
