Brief impression of Mad Jacks BBQ in Pittsfield - Based on 2 takeout encounters - Overall it is not spectacular but seems a worthy addition to downtown Pittsfield. There is not much room to eat in and it seems they are mainly going for takeout business.
Pulled pork the first time I had it was excellent, smoky and tasty, the second time was also good but not quite as good as the first. Minimal amount of sauce which is how I like it to not cover up the flavor of the meat. Brisket is decent, not the best but solid.
Cornbread was good, a sweeter style which I like. I did not like the cole slaw but that is a personal preference, I really only like the vinegary style and theirs was more creamy. Beans were not the best I have had but above average. Have not yet tried any ribs, chicken, etc.
Overall I don't know if I would make a special trip for it but they will definitely have my business for lunch when in town. Prices are reasonable too. For comparison in the county quality is comparable to Rt. 7 Grill but less expensive and I liked the pork better. Would be interested to know if anyone else has tried it and if you agree.
