Best BBQ Ever

We go to Smokin' Jims at least once a week. We usually get dinner for two with ribs and two sides. We love it so much that we are choosing this place to do our catering for approximately 100 people for a banquet we are in charge of. Reasonably priced and great food.

Several members of my damily love this restaurant. Me, sot so much. I ordered a stuffed baked potato which was really disgusting. It did have pork in it, but smothered with some kind of lliquid cheese or velveta.

Had a chance to hit Smokin' Jim's two nights and was not disappointed either time. Great, friendly staff and amazing BBQ and steaks. Ribs and brisket were amazing the first night. Great Mac and cheese and other sides too. Ribeye was cooked and seasoned perfectly. Couldn't recommend it more!

We went there on new years eve. We are from tampa and wanted some good barbecue. I did a Google search and found this place. Food and staff was excellent. A long drive for barbecue but worth it. Will go back when near there again. What to try steak night on Saturday.

I have had the pleasure of enjoying this BBQ at both catered events and in the restaurant. The people are friendly and inviting! The food is amazing. My favorite has to be the ribs, or maybe the brisket. I have never had anything there that I do not enjoy every bite. Don't forget dessert!!! I have stopped by just for... More

We have eaten here so many times I cannot count them. The food is invariably excellent and there is plenty of it. Of especial note is the quality of the folks who work at Smokin' Jim's. The servers are great and definitely remember their customers. But above all is the man at the smoker. He is friendly and extremely accommodating.... More

Beats peebles barbecue and sonny's by far prices are reasonable. And they take pride in their oak smoked meat. The ribs are absolutely incredible and the house made coleslaw is wonderful as well
