Best BBQ

Alway busy, but well worth the wait. Pulled pork sandwich is my favorite. But the ribs are like Mom never made😀. Staff is friendly and attentive. Must have the baked beans if you want to put some South in your mouth.

This is more of a restaurant than a Barbeque place. There are too many good options for BBQ in Birmingham to settle for this. It's good however for a business meeting. Has a full bar, etc.

I was staying in the area for 2 weeks while on a buiness trip, we tried various places to eat and tried Jim 'N Nicks on the penultimate day. I wish we'd tried it sooner. The food was amazing, that's all you need to know. However just to add a little more detial. Everything is cooked fresh on the premises... More

My favorite thing to order at any location is the grilled catfish. This is my first time eating at this location and my fish was so overcooked it was not fit to eat. Also, the plates for the biscuits were dirty. With so many choices in the area to eat I will not be back.

First off, the BBQ is very good and that is what matters. Secondly, this location has a fun layout, the staff has always been friendly, the food is consistent, and the kid's menu is great. Cheese biscuits and a pig in the garden salad is a wonderful meal.

We've been to Jim 'n Nick's Bar-B-Q several times now--both to dine in and take out--and the food has been great every time. Not only is the meat delicious, but the biscuits and sides are wonderful too. Don't miss this spot if you're in Hoover.

The minute you walk in, you are greeting by friendly hostesses. The restaurant has a fun country atmosphere that you imediately feel comforable in. And the food is excellent. They have yummy onion rings and cheese muffins that are to die for. And let's not forget the BEST pulled pork sandwich in all of Hoover as well as their amazing... More

We had a great surprise tonight when we ate at Jim 'n Nick's Bar-B-Q. The barbecue chicken and pulled pork salad were excellent. And the cheesy biscuits were delicious. Our waitress Mindy was great--she brought us a piece of lemon ice box pie for no charge. We are definitely going back again this week. Too bad we live over 800... More

Atmosphere is good, a bit crowded since it is so popular - best Mac & Cheese with BBQ on top that you will get anywhere. I haven't had a bad meal there yet and have used them for catered lunches - food is always well received by meeting attendee's. Never had a complaint - highly recommend them, but if going... More
