Just an overall poor lunch experience

I hadn't eaten at Jim 'N Nick's in years, but stopped in for lunch the other day and was very disappointed. The dining room is so packed with tables that people were having a very difficult time navigating between them. I was seated in a small room off to the side, and every time someone walked... read more

We are fairly regular patrons of Jim N Nick's. My favorite is their fried catfish because they batter it the way that catfish should be battered- with cornmeal and not flour. The 2-fillet platter is large enough that I can get two meals out of it. In my cheese bread eating days, I used to looooove their mini-muffins. Other items... More

Dropped in Jim N' Nick's BBQ in Smyrna today for lunch. It's been awhile since I've eaten there. I wanted to order the Baked Potato with Pulled Pork but unfortunately they were out of potatoes! I ordered the small baby back rib platter with collards and mac/cheese and my wife ordered the Friday Lunch special which was a piece of... More

We eat here almost every week. Southern comfort food. Delicious. If you are a calorie or nutrition counter don't over-do it which is easy to do. All of their BBQ plates are prepared fresh daily. Smokers arrive in the wee hours of the mornings to smoke the days meat. When they run out for the day, well, come back tomorrow.... More

I've eaten here several times and always had good food. I often take visitors here and they really enjoy it. Service is usually very good, but occasionally slips. Food is also usually very good, but it, too, occasionally slips. However, on an average day, the pulled pork is great, but the sleeper dish that everyone seems to enjoy is the... More

Mix average BBQ with weak service and you have a disappointing lunch. The food was just average and the service poor. I had a Brunswick stew that was dry and so heavy on the pepper I could hardly eat it. My pork BBQ sandwich was fair. We had to ask for utensils (after the food had been severed) two times... More

I've been to the original Jim 'N Nicks in Birmingham. We drive from Indiana and always make a stop. This time we were heading farther east in Florida, so had to try a different J ''N N's. The ambiance is more modern at this one, but it has the same great food and pleasant service. My family usually has the... More

Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q is a nice restaurant with stacks of hickory wood outside, but does not have very good BBQ. I am not sure what they do with the wood, but the BBQ brisket and pork does not have a a smokey flavor. Sides and cheese biscuits are above average, but BBQ is below average. Anyone who thinks this... More
