We’ve had better meals at the SLU Jack’s than at their SoDo location, so you’re in good hands eating lunch here. And despite being smack in the middle of a bunch of South Lake Union lunch spots, you can almost always grab a table in the chill space that looks like a honky-tonk bar. The perfect meal at Jack’s is a pulled chicken sandwich topped with barbecue sauce and slaw, with a cup of queso mac and cheese on the side.
