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.

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

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

We stopped here for a business lunch for four, including two guys from Switzerland who wanted to try some real barbeque. Our table had both pork and beef and were completely satisfied. The meat was tender and flavorful and the sauce was really complementary - not overpowering at all The best part of the lunch was our server, April. She... More

After being seated was immediately bumped by a passer by then by the wait staff. Tables are packed in. Then came the food. I ordered a 3 meat combo... More

Visiting Birminghma area for 1st time and hotel clerk strongly recommended we eat at nearby Jim 'Nick's - we didn't know it was one of several in the SE states. My husband and I both loved our food - a beef brisket sandwich for him and the medium sized baby back ribs that our server, Leigh, recommended. Leigh was very... More

After seeing the rave reviews of this restaurant, I was very excited about trying their barbecue. I ordered beef brisket, potato salad and drink. The sandwich was very small, potato salad was a very small scoop and the Diet Coke had no carbonation. To get this very basic meal which ordered at the bar, it took almost 30 minutes. I... More

I'm a BBQ aficionado. So, when I found this place immediately next to our hotel, I checked with a couple of folks who just raved about it. And, based on the number of cars we saw there throughout our three-day stay, it has to be immensely popular. Service was excellent. My wife had a salad she loved with chicken and... More
