Enjoy the BBQ, but don’t miss out on the banana pudding!

I was in the Birmingham, Alabama area on business when I was introduced to Jim ‘N Nick’s. Alabamans are proud of their barbeque, and when my colleagues and I asked some local folks where we could get some good BBQ they recommended Jim ‘N Nick’s. This is a popular regional chain, with locations... read more

My mom was visiting from PA this past weekend & it had to include a visit to Jim N Nicks to get her a piece of lemon pie, I have to admit it's my favorite too. But we also indulged in the salads, turkey plate w/white sauce & chicken fingers. Yes I know it's a BBQ place, but they also... More

Jim 'n Nick's has long been one of my favorite BBQ joints in Birmingham for a long time. Everything is scratch made every day, which I really appreciate. The BBQ pork and brisket is always hot and juicy, the sauces are amazing, and the small plate appetizers are en pointe. Try the smoked sausage small plate with crackers, pimento cheese,... More

Always great food!!!! The barbecue is smoked just right. They give you big portions!!!! I always have to get the onion rings (which are a meal by themselves). The little biscuits they give you are also great.

I heard the food was outstanding and decided to get some carryout for the family. The service was very helpful and friendly, overall the food was just typical or possibly less than typical compared to the barbque we normally enjoy like Famous Daves, Whitts, etc.

They did everything right, but there was nothing that stood out. I tried a large smaller late so I could try things out. It was all good. But nothing that would drive me to try this over Dreamland...both are comparable.

I went here with some friends while I was in town on business. It was a pretty typical BBQ place. The food was pretty good and the staff was reay nice. There was not anything particulate that made it stand out to me. I will say I researched and ate at a couple of different BBQ places while I was... More

I have ever been disappointed at this restaurant before and thanks to the Manager, I will be back. My husband and I were starving so we ordered our meal with the drinks immediately. Our server was on the ball but the place was busy so he was hopping. 35 minutes later and we still did not have our salads. (yes!... More

The food was excellent, and the service was good. We did freeze; I guess we were under an air-conditioning vent. It is very noisy, so loud children won't disturb anyone. I really liked the North Carolina BBQ, slaw, and collards. The little muffins are tasty.

Our group went there about 8:30 PM. We had been there many times before. Pointers: Don't order your hamburger "well-done." I did and it was delivered charred. Three folks at my end of the table all got dried-out, cold french fries - the server brought fresh ones. Several menu items were not available - sold out. The draft/craft beer selections... More
