A Fix for my BBQ addiction

Since Pig Out had closed down a while ago, I have been looking for a good BBQ place. I have been wanting to go up to Grumpy's , but just started out late. So I googled and this place came up. It was worth the 30 minute drive. The BBQ was stacked high, and I dressed it with their scrumptious... read more

Wow, what a great experience my wife and I just had here. I was looking for ribs, and Google said this was a candidate. TripAdvisor rated it high, so we gave it a try. Nice surprise. The ribs are served dry, and there is plenty of sauce available on the table (3 or 4 different choices). I never used any... More

I am a BBQ snob- especially when it comes to ribs. For me, they have to fall off the bone and have the right sauce combination. Hubby and I moved to the area and decided to check this place out. We ordered a rack of ribs, coleslaw, baked beans and cornbread. The ribs were one of the best I've had-... More

The BBQ is very good. The smell as soon as you walk in makes your mouth water. The cornbread was good. It is a casual style inside.

I had the opportunity to sit down with the owner and try a good selection of all of the different varieties of foods on the menu. I must say that I was NOT disappointed in one...this is some of the Best BBQ around. The Brisket is outstanding, the wings are grilled and delicious, not to mention the Ribs & Pulled... More

The people at Jimmy's are making great barbecue. The restaurant centers around their huge smoker, and you can't miss the smell when you drive by on route 30. I've had the ribs on many occasions, and have always been pleased. The smoked bacon is mandatory eating-do not leave without trying some! My only gripe is that the second time I... More

Fantastic bbq for the area. The food has a good smoke ring to it, nice and tender, and they even have some good sauce if you are into that. The smoked bacon is outstanding. The sides are great as well, really enjoyed the beans. The pulled pork had a great flavor and the sausage has a good spice to it.

If to you bbq means burned food with small sides then head to this place. We either hit this place on a bad night or the other reviews are inaccurate. Half of the ribs were black with carbon. They should have be embarrassed to serve use those ribs. A backyard bbq would have been much better. The hot bbq sauce... More

We saw a story about Jimmy's on a local TV foodie program and tried it shortly afterward. We were very pleased with our orders - ribs for me and salmon for my wife. The ribs were quite large and meaty, and my wife was very pleased with the salmon, which seemed an unusual item on a BBQ menu. We also... More

Main dishes are great...pulled pork, pulled chicken, ribs, etc. Smokey bbq with a choice of 3 bbq sauces to try which you put on yourself which I like. Sides are ok. I would stick with the main dishes. Service was fine...no issues.
