Orioles' Adam Jones Endorses Cockeysville BBQ Shack

Who do you think makes the best barbecue in town?

What's the best way to promote your locally owned, small-scale restaurant? Make sure a Major League All-Star thinks its tasty. 

The Orioles' Adam Jones showed a little love to a Cockeysville "best kept secret" lunch spot Monday afternoon, welcoming his 96,165 followers to "come get some" at Jake's Grill on Falls Road. 

Normally, here is where we would direct your to our Patch Directory where you'd find all of the local businesses, churches, medical centers and government buildings in the 21030. However, Jake's has slipped under our radar. (It's a problem we'll be rectifying in the very near future.) 

We'd ask you to write a review about it and share your opinions with our readers, but fortunately that's what we have our star center-fielder for. 

Jones, by the way, describes himself as a "Food Enthusiast" and "Dog Lover," which means he'll also probably like this little shindig happening just north of Cockeysville this weekend. 

Jones's post on Instagram notched more than 500 "likes" and more than 30 comments, which reignited the age-old debate: who makes the best barbecue in Cockeysville?

"Have you hit up Andy Nelson's in Cockysville.... Mind blowing experience !!!," wrote Instagram user n_clash

Another user, mr_slippyfist123 responded, "Nah jakes is the real deal. He hooks it up every time. Swerveeeeee @jolo6." We're not entirely sure the meaning of "Swerveeeeee," but it sounds good.

Commenters also pointed out that the small shack at 11948 Falls Road used to be called Shorty's. Yes. That Shorty.    

So when you're—ahem—jonesing for prime barbecue are these parts, where do you go? Start the conversation in the comments section below.

Charcoal Deli in Cockeysville has the best barbeque in Baltimore! That's the only place I go to when I'm in town. They also have a very friendly staff that goes out of their way to make their customers happy.

Charcoal Deli is definitely the best bbq in town. And if you want something a little more spicy try the cajun.

IRS has a open case against Jakes Grill 2.5 million from 2008 -2013.Everything can be seen in the above court records. Shellenberger filed 5 felony charges against me Case 30-8-254-0504 Officer Wagner. I bet the case I bet the case 2-7-2011 as well.The Toilet was about this case against Jakes Grill. I'm Shorty Jake was fired for stealing and damaging property 11-10-2007...I got videos on court record to support everything .Call 410-308-0022 and ask him to produce a bill of sale or an EVICTION by my landlord...I can show forgery and witnesses as well. Mr.DiMarco has a petiton with over 4500 people asking for JUSTICE.

I don't think I would want to eat food prepared by some kind of a nut who plays around with toilets and calls it art. Maybe its just me.
Duane G. Davis February 13, 2013 at 12:51 AM
No one ever ask you to eat here S/M my customers bought the TOILETS to the STORE....you need to know the entire story instead of voicing your uniformed opinion.Makes you look ingnorant and you know what that means
James Buff February 14, 2013 at 09:04 PM
Clearly somone from charcoal deli is saying that. They are garbage compared to Jake' so is Andy Nelson's.
Ali Saine February 14, 2013 at 11:01 PM
No need to bash two great eateries. I just know I would rather support two places that support their community over one that is being investigated.
