Very good BBQ

We did take out for a party of 10. The food was excellent. Very good BBQ joint. High quality and the homemade BBQ chips are exceptional. Others in the party ordered pork sandwiches, pig in a salad, and pulled chicken. All very good. If you are craving BBQ, I would highly recommend.

This is a common stop anytime I am in Birmingham! Just getting past the homemade biscuits is amazing! BBQ is awesome, my favorite is the Brisket! Match up with collard greens, baked beans or the mac n cheese you can't go wrong! Don't forget to grab a bag of biscuit mix as you leave!

This Jim 'N Nick's location is short walking distance from hotels near the UAB campus. As business travelers, we have stopped here a few times after work to unwind and enjoy a hearty meal. The restaurant is fairly large and has ample seating on weeknights. The food is great - but only if you are in the mood for BBQ... More

Was in Birmingham and heard that this is a must visit dinner option in Birmingham. Ribs were terrific! Had both rib types. Limited extras but meat and cheese biscuits are superb.

We dined with a party of 22, for which we had a reservation months ahead. The restaurant gave us a private room, which was nice. Service was abysmal, we waited so long for drinks, that many of us needed to go to the bar and order our own drinks. Servers neglected to bring rolls until everyone had finished the meal.... More

Always looking for a new BBQ spot. Trying to find the best of the best. This restaurant has some decent BBQ. The dark sauce is the best. Decent atmosphere, clean, well kept. I wondered if this was a chain and now I know better. Kinda on the pricey side for BBQ. Thought I was in a big city with these... More

I recently had lunch at Jim'N Nicks Bar-B-Q in Birmingham, I was unfamiliar with this restaurant and was unaware that it is a chain (they even have allocation at the airport !). I had the baby back ribs, which were pretty good, although the portion size was less than I would have expected. Their BBQ sauces were quite good and... More

This is one of my favorite BBQ places, even if it is a chain. Pulled pork, chicken were all real good (get the white sauce for the chicken) and the little rolls are fabulous. Real easy to eat too many rolls. Had a bite of the catfish and it is fantastic.

Being from KC I might have had my expectations set too high. Expected bigger portions, fresh sides (not microwaved), and leaving stuffed (which I didn't). Will not be going back on my next visit to Birmingham.

I like the one in Trussville more than any of the others spot. I always gotten great service there and always enjoy my food.
