This restaurant was very busy and noisy; however, the food and service was great! So glad it was located next to the hotel in which we were staying.

The food at Jim and Nicks was delicious. The menu is very diverse it includes all types of barbecue, burgers and even fried catfish. The cheese biscuits are almost worth the trip by themselves.

I was really ready for this experience. My bf had been talking about this for a while.. from the other locations he had been to in the past. They brought out the cheddar biscuits, and sodas. I tasted one of the two sauces on the table and decided on which one to use. Much to my surprise when we received... More

If you want to dine where everything on the menu is fabulous this is the place. Yes their barbeque is great but the catfish, the salads, the burgers, and the complimentary cheese biscuits are sinfully delicious. You will not go wrong when you go to Jim n Nicks!

We really like their food, but their drive through is ridiculously slow, even though you are the ONLY one in the line! Usually takes 10-15 minutes to receive your order.

Very moist and tender baby back ribs served with fresh cut fries and onion rings. A half rack was enough for two. Pulled pork sandwich was not fatty and had plenty of smoked flavor. Because the restaurant was busy we had to sit at the bar. We had a young server who was more interested in talking to someone at... More

Went with family for dinner. The place was crowded but we got a table in less than two minutes. Servers were friendly. Food was served super fast and was very delicious. Refills were going without having to ask. A true Southern BBQ.

Good food, good portions, good price / kids portions were good at a GREAT price....we each ordered brisket sandwiches, my brisket had a few tough pieces but overall a very good sandwich. The beans and sweet potato casserole were both wonderful. I've eaten Jack Stack beans in Kansas City and these were up there with those....very good flavor. They also... More

Whether we are in Birmingham or Destin we have to eat at Jim and Nick's. Food is very good. Portions are large and the staff is friendly. We love the ribs and the turkey is excellent.

My family and I were very pleased with the large portions pulled pork sandwiches and 3-meat combo. The smokey flavor was very good. However, being a southern girl, I was not overly impressed. Since I was from out of town, locals recommended that I visit while I was in town. It was satisfying. But, I've had better and more tender... More
