JJS Meat Shak started in 2011 as a weekend food truck in the small town of Buena Vista selling pork barbeque, specialty burgers & fresh cut fries. The food truck was such a success that the owner decided to start building more and more seating and eventually closing it in to accommodate guests through the winter season. JJ’s is owned by Lew & Kendra Hamilton and named after their children Jacob & Jessica. The family also operates the restaurant with the help of their extended family and friends.

JJ’s Meat Shak is open 7 days a week with daily and weekend specials that include favorites other than barbecue, such as seafood platters, specialty burgers, wood-fired pizzas, and down- home country classics. When you’re finished with your slow cooked “fall of the bone” ribs, mouthwatering fried oysters or the famous “Hog Pen”, you can indulge in a cup of Hershey’s hand dipped ice cream, with many flavors to choose from.

If you’re trying to feed a large group, JJ’s offers a “Feed Yer Folks’ menu for parties up to 30 people. They also have an amazing catering menu that is great for weddings, corporate functions, collegiate events – just about anything you can think of!! If you don’t see what you’re looking for, their catering manager will build a menu for you! No matter what size or type of event – JJ’s is the right choice for catering!
