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

We went to Jim 'n Nick's after the ballgame since we were downtown and we had heard good things about the restaurant. (My husband is on a quest to find the best BBQ in Alabama.) The BBQ is OK, but the staff didn't get our order right. If you're into the sort of yuppy, college scene, you'll like the atmosphere.... More

Ate lunch there today...... Had Brisket Sandwich and Onion Rings.... Best I have ever eaten. Thought it might have been a little pricey, but was well satisfied.... Kayla was our Server and she was outstanding.....Very nice young lady and did an excellent job. Really enjoyed the Rolls/Biscuits. Took flour and recipe home and will try my hand at making some....

Jim 'n Nick's BBQ is good but would not be in my top three Birmingham BBQ restaurants. The menu is overpriced compared to some of the better competitors.

Waitress was Kelli and she was excellent. Describing drinks and giving her favorites. Being attentive and all around perky (but not too much). First time at this location as usually I go to Trussville. I wuold go back ans ask to be in her section.

We visited jim n nicks by the galleria back in april. Service was good and the food came quick, which was surprising because they were very busy. The portions were large, the salads were huge, I couldnt finish mine.

Pork, chicken, brisket... It's all awesome. They make their side items fresh every day. For ribs, I like Dreamland the best, but for any other type of BBQ, Jim-N-Nicks without any hesitation. If you know anything about restaurant/chef awards, you may have heard of the national James Beard Foundation awards. Well, Nick Pihakis (the Nick of Jim N Nicks) has... More

Love Jim N Nicks's! Always look forward to a visit when I'm in the south. BBQ the way it should be and their special cheese biscuits are to die for! Go, you won't be sorry!.

Jim N' Nick's is our absolute favorite. We have never had a bad experience here. The pork and chicken are excellent but their turkey is hands down our favorite. But the best part of the meal would have to be the cheese biscuits.
