Jk's Brickhouse

"Entering into this neighborhood which lies west of Jack London in a tough n' gritty part of town, remains mixed of residents surrounded by commercial and industrial warehouses in close proximity to housed cargo containers, railroad tracks and the port. Driving west on 7th Street and left on Adeline, I shared the road with diesels trucks passing by heading over the causeway bridge that leads to down to the docks.

Upon my embarkation from Adeline Street tucked away just below the BART rails overhead, I discovered the driveway leading to the rear of this lone brick building that seemed to exist in the middle of nowhere. You can practically feel the ghostly presence of old southern laborers who ventured west to work the shipyards.

Stepping out from my car in the rear parking lot, I encountered the most distinguishing familiar aroma. But this was not just the smell of bar-b-que. Oh, no. It was the aroma of a superb vintage recipe traced back to Waco, Texas. A smell from the past of my own childhood innocence when I recall my neighbor's dad Mr. Charlie Green from Texas who made the best and most famous bar-b-que on the block. I have not traced that smell since. I knew that this was the smell of true Texan dry-rubbed smoked barbeque. Wow, I didn't quite know what to think. While I was anxious to sample the taste of possibly great food, I also could feel the haunting souls of old shipyard laborers lingering about this place. My feelings were mixed about entering the red brick building, however I continued.

Once inside, I felt the uneasiness of an unwelcome stranger, who was perhaps too fancy for this saloon, but it was Friday after all and I just needed to shake the dust off from my boots and cool my heels with perhaps a cold sarsaparilla. There were several neighborly folk sitting at the bar, playing pool and eatting plates of catfish and fried chicken.

The waitress, very pleasant, took our drink of Cran - Man (mandarin absolute and crandberry) and a cognac and food order and returned with well -portioned plates. We ordered an oyster-loaf, a shrimp loaf and a bar-b-que dinner all for a modest price. The oyster and shrimp sandwich was fried in a light batter and came on a buttered French roll with lettuce, tomato and plenty of pickles and steak fries on the side. The cup of coleslaw was the best tasting house-made slaw that I have ever had. The shrimp were actually medium prawns and were perfectly cooked. The oysters were rather pretty good, although I prefer them fried harder. The Q was the best. They offer hotlink, chicken and rib dinners. It comes with baked beans, potato salad and coleslaw. Notably, the ribs were tender, lean with the fat trimmed and carefully prepared by a master q'er called cowboy. The size of the ribs were small to medium, indicating that the age of animal was youthful, unlike the huge and tough Amazon ribs that is served at Everett and Jones. The portions were very appetizing

JK's is not a restaurant by traditional terms, it is a local dive where you can hang your boots, share some libations and spirits and with locals and spirits; shoot the schtick with local folk and enjoy the eats."
