So delicious & messy (BBQ should never be neat & tidy right?)!!! Can't wait to make a return visit. We had the plate for 2 with a taste of all the meats, collard greens, & potato salad, plus the corn bread. Yummy! Wonderful! Cool ambience & great staff! Stop reading these & just go!read more

Love this place. The downtown location is the best one. The lemonade is so good. The brisket, bbq chicken, ribs, and links are delicious. The prices are reasonable for the portion you get. Nice, open restaurant. Friendly staff.read more

I'm no expert but this is what I guess soul food is supposed to be! Everything was just how we wanted it with our ribs smokey and slathered in vinegary BBQ sauce. They brew their own beer, show the sports and the clientele seems to be a nice mix of locals and the new tech bubble crowd. Our watiress was super sweet and took great care of us - Oakland homeliness in spades. Good music too.read more

Very good food! Started out bad. Sat at the table for 10 minutes before anyone came to take our order. The waitress that came was great! She never let our drinks run out. There is a constant banging sound that came from the kitchen that was super annoying, other than that the restaurant is very nice. We ordered the dinner for two that had four meats...this meal is big enough for three. We took and entire to-go box home with us and we were both super full. The Ribs were the best by far and the brisket was a close second for me. The macaroni and cheese was by far my favorite thing ...I think... I loved the corn bread too. The ranch beans are different ..not bad...just different. Parking was tricky to find near the restaurant. We had to walk a ways to get there.read more

To be honest the first everett I went to was not really that great. This time I went to the location out at Jack London square. Did not wait long and got seated. We ordered a ribs and brisket (which was cooked to perfection and I rarely touch beef) with an excellent macaroni and cheese and greens with cornbread for sides. The portions were good size enough for us to share. We got a sock it to me cake and a sweet potato pie to go. Tiffany (yes Tiffany I see you) was very nice and really gave great customer appreciation. I was thoroughly impressed by the food. I got appetizers and drinks at Yoshis and it was 90 compared to real food drinks and dessert here for 40. Good stuff.read more

This place is pretty nice. I usually get the ribs from this place which are good every time. Service is slow but I guess they take their time to make it perfect.read more

I would go to Southern Cafe if the location n sauce werent so greatBomb brisket and portions✔️Good prices ✔️Live music ✔️Bland sides ❎Their dry, butter wanting, candied yams and Bland collard greens make them a pass if you are from the South. But for Oakland the joint is great and the location is perfect. I've been 3 times now and each time have been disappointed every side I have tried. Including the cornbread mac and cheese and potato salad.read more

Great place. Oakland paraphernalia in southern food gives an old Oakland ungentrified feel.. barbecue is bomb. However their sides Lack the love and foot your grandmother put into her cooking. The yams are particularly disappointing. Void of butter tasting like a vegan recipe. LOL but the greens and mac are pretty good. the brisket and ribs were really good. The sauce help me forgive and forget.read more

Everett and Jones got four stars because the food is very good. They would have gotten a five if they weren't so slow. Party of 20 waited over a hour once we put in our order. No matter what day or time you go you always have to wait to long for your food . Unfortunately we don't go as often as we like to because of that reason.read more

Everett & Jones Barbeque in located in the Jack London neighborhood of Oakland, California. It's been in business since the earlier 1970's. Parking on the Street is available but it fills up fast especially at night and on the weekends. Clean facilities with a wheelchair accessible entrance. Public Restrooms. Reasonably priced. Credit cards accepted. We will definitely be going back.read more

Greg Johnson and Vince Staten, in their valuable 1988 guide to the nation’s best barbeque joints and sauces, titled Real Barbecue, declare that Everett and Jones sauce is the best in medium and hot varieties. they write, “The sauce is very sweet, almost fruity and very smoky, with a persistent perspiration factor that builds with each bite.
The business continues to grow. The strategy for growth combines professionalizing its business operations while moving into retail food product distribution and expanding the geographical location of its restaurant units. “Today, many of Dorothy’s children are at the helm of the business, and a number of her grandchildren are moving into positions of leadership to see the business into the future.
