Checked this place out based on its excellent review on tripadvisor. Food was good... I didn't realize it was a chain but for a chain I'd say it was great.

This restaurant is quite nice. We got delicious warm cheese biscuits before our dinner, but we should have asked and ordered something else for dinner. My brisket was very chewy and fatty, and not hot at all. My husbands pulled pork was quite tasteless and dry. Order the ribs, that's what most people seemed to get. You can order sides.... More

If you like classic ribs and bar b que you'll love this place. You buy your classic ribs by the pound and they are excellent. The local beer, the Naked Pig, is also quite good. the atmosphere is old wood and very comfortable and our waiter was just the right amount of friendly and helpful

We saw this place advertised on the interstate and, as we were staying in Birmingham, we gave it a go. The place was busy when we arrived but after about 10-15 minutes we were seated. Staff were friendly and helpful. We both went for ribs - different types and they were delicious. Big portions that were filling. Good beer. If... More

Excellent Smoky Ribs, Fresh Cut Fries and Sweet Potato Crunch. The Fresh Lemonade is the BEST I have ever had, better than Home Made. Meal rating 4.5 out is 5!

We stop at Jim 'n Nick's everytime we are in Birmingham. The BBQ is one of the best in the South. Pork sandwiches, Ribs and the fresh cut fries are wonderful! Wish there were more of them around!

Wonderful barbecue!! Full rack baby back ribs very good and no sauce needed. The beef brisket was good as well. We had wings which were small even though menu says jumbo, they taste good as well. We were full when we left. Service was good. Will eat here again if we are in town...

Took my daughter here while visiting Birmingham and Tuscaloosa. We were looking for authentic southern BBQ and got exactly what we were looking for. We are both gluten intolerant and the server was friendly and helpful steering us to house specialties and making sure we were gluten free.

Those cheese biscuits! Delicious! It was difficult to stop at one so I could save room for my Loaded Mac and Cheese with pulled pork on top. Delicious! Good service. Comfortable setting. Good place to have a meal.

Good size portions and tasty food. Fresh squeezed lemon aid is wonderful. Nice friendly staff. Even though there were very few people in the resturant service was slow.
