Great BBQ

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.

We were a group of 14 who arrived around 8:50pm on a Wed. night after a family event at church. We had called to be sure they could serve us and they said sure, come on in. We were quickly seated and drink orders were taken. Right as our drinks arrived, our food order was taken. Service was quick but... More

This used to be our favorite family dinner spot close to home. Not only eating out, but on July 4 and Labor Day, we often catered their food for family gatherings. I have been very disappointed over the last three visits. Jim N' Nick's has lost their edge. The quality of the food seems to be deteriorating but the cost... More

My family truly likes the food at Jim 'n Nick's, but the Trussville restaurant needs to be worked on where the drive through line is concerned. Tonight, one of the two sides that comes with the pulled pork plate was left out of the order. The time before, the entire order was wrong. When you have to drive all the... More

I had the 2 meat plate. Pulled pork and ribs. Both were well made and solid. Not superstar level, but I would eat here again. Side of collards and baked beans were spectacular. Baked beans were just sweet enough to be perfect. Love the cheese rolls to start. Good place with good service.

I recently moved to Trussville from another city that had a Jim'n Nick's Bar-B-Q, and I have been to numerous other locations as well. I can say that this Jim 'n Nicks has some of the most consistently good service and food taste. I am obviously a big fan of Jim 'n Nicks and frequently bring out of town guest... More
