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

We went before the lunch crowd. Seated,drinks served quickly.our server was friendly and took our order quickly. But the muffins came late and our food took an hour to come out even asking 3 different people about it. Pork plates and sandwiches don't take a n hour to prepare.

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not a huge barbecue fan. I can enjoy it or pass. But my friends love to eat here and I admit they make me try some of what they order. The baby back ribs are excellent, the pulled pork is tasty and the sauce is ok. I always get the ribeye, not... More

Tasty food. Love the smoky sweet bbq sauce on chicken and pork. Great barbecue vinegrette on salads topped with meat, and the potatoes are the biggest I've seen. Don't forget to ask for cheesy biscuits!!

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.
