Road trip lunch

We were looking for lunch on our way home from vacation that wasn't fast food. This fit the bill. We were promptly seated and well taken care of. The food came out quickly. The sweet cheese muffins are delicious. We are a family of 5 and all got different things but most included some type of... read more

I hate to be critical as our waitress was very attentive and nice. However, the food while delicious is overpriced compared to elsewhere. Seasoning is bland on onion rings. Fries were tasty but limp. NO BRISKET ON A MONDAY NIGHT AT 6:30 pm! With all of the good BBQ in Alabama and Georgia we were expecting better considering the awesome... More

Stopped in for lunch and was not disappointed. The service was excellent and attentive: salads also for vegetarians. Recommend the cheese biscuits (on the list of 100 things to eat in Alabama).

Took 6 of my colleagues (some from out of town) here for lunch and it was a great choice. Food was exceptional. White sauce was talked about most. Service was great. I'll do this again with my next business meal when I'm entertaining.

This is a pretty regular stop for me. It's regular because it's consistently good on service, food and atmosphere. If you want good BBQ, then come on. I recommend the smoked turkey!

Been here several times and it never disappoints. Good food & good service. If you don't get there early on weekends, be prepared to wait, but it is worth it.

I have been to Jim 'n Nick's many, many times. It is that good. The BBQ is wonderful. It's juicy and tender. The BBQ sauce is tomato based which I love. I usually order either the pig in the garden salad or the baby back ribs. The salad's huge. I can usually make 3 meals out of one salad. The... More

I was visiting the Barber Museum and stopped in here after a day of walking around looking at motorcycles. I sat at the bar since the place was packed. I was served immediately. While sipping on my Crown and coke I perused the menu and with a little help from the bartender, I ordered the ribs! Not long after that... More

There are a lot of BBQ places in the south. Each one tries to be different, but in being different they often end up with sauce that kinda misses the mark. Not so with Jim & Nicks. The food is great. They have a decent selection of non bar be que items so that anyone not wanting BBQ has a... More

The smoke turkey with white sauce is the best. The fried catfish is also excellent. Sevierville is good and prices are compatible with other BBQ places in the area.
