I had heard of this place from a coworker, so one night on the way home I tried some take out. The 1/2 Rack of back ribs smelled odd and tasted that way. I had issues for two days after eating only 2 of the six ribs before chucking the rest in the trash. The décor is old and poorly... More

Though the atmosphere is not that of a fine dining experience, the ribs are some of the best we have ever eaten. We always return.

Their pulled pork is chopped not pulled. The day I was there for dinner about 6:30 PM someone came in and ordered some ribs, they said sorry were out. Cole slaw was not good.

We started out eating the ribs from Jim's ribs about 50 years ago when they were in Rock Island, IL, They just had a small place where they smoked their ribs and it was a carryout sort of place. Since then, of course, they have expanded and now they are in East Moline as well as in Rock Island. Don't... More

If you looking for the best BBQ ribs in the Quad Cities, Jim's is it. When you enter, you order from the front counter and the waitress brings out your food when it is ready. For lunch I had the half bony box, with fries and a diet coke. Service was quick and the ribs were excellent along with some... More

The environment was hospital-like with bright white light; the bathroom is dirty and small; the table we sat at was extremely greasy and sticky; I dared not to touch the door as I walked out because it was covered by a black "coating"..... The foot tasted ok; however, thinking of the dirtiness all over the place, I could not help... More

An unassuming place with the best BBQ in the Quad Cities! Damion (Son of Jim Sr.) and his crew make your visit a pleasant one, and takeout is their specialty. Terrific fresh cut French fries!

Jim's is not 5 star dining. The restaurant looks a little long in the tooth. However, they serve 5 star BBQ. Is the service always good? No. However, they serve 5 star BBQ. Do you get my drift? You can always call in a carry out order! Hint - The back ribs are excellent. So are the BBQ baked beans.
