great food!

Four of us ate here for dinner and we all loved what we ordered. Great pulled pork, catfish, brisket, pickles, baked beans and pecan pie. Fantastic complimentary biscuits. Service was good. The restaurant is very clean. We would definitely go back again.

Food was great. I had the pork plate with mashed potatoes & baked beans. Generous helpings. The corn bread & cheese muffins had a nice sweetness to them. As far as service, the initial demeanor & greetings at the door have a lot to be desired. But don't let them stop you because Alexia serving at the bar area was... More

Come here often for great food, but attention to detail is not a strong suit. Last visit had multiple people waiting for seats, yet there were 9 open ones in the main dining room. If servers are an issue, hire more; if speed is the issue, train them better. Prices of this type demand better service!

We spent the day at Bass Pro Shop and decided to find a good restaurant nearby. Jim and Nicks won the toss and we elected to eat BBQ. The service was excellent and the food...well, let's just say we took extras home. The chicken was moist and you could taste the smoke all the way through. The collards, slaw and... More

The food is usually pretty good here and service is usually top notch. Last time we went was on a Saturday night and of course it was crowded. We knew we would have to wait so we put our name on the list and went to the bar. I don't know who ticked the hostess off but she was NOT... More

Good food but very unfriendly manager. Customer service is not here. If you do not mind being talk to rude by manager than you may enjoy the good food. :(

We have passed by Jim 'n Nicks for years, seeing the parking lot full and smelling the b-q smoke lingering in the air as we shopped various stores in Trussville. This time my husband and I decided to give it a try and boy are we glad we did. Our experience started out with the best servers, we were given... More

We've always been to dreamland but decided to change it up and I'm glad we did. Everything ordered by the seven of us was great! We look forward to visiting in the future.

The wait staff is exceptionally professional. The environment is very relaxing. TV's are available so you can watch your favorite sporting event, but it is not the focal point. This is good comfort food done right. There is something for everyone and you can't go wrong. For business meetings for Family, for friends it is truly an environment for all.... More
