As I near my 75th year and perceive much of the world in chaos, confusion and decline, I have come to realize the increasing importance and psychological benefit of the local "watering hole" with excellent food. Unable to reach a consensus on what anyone wanted me to fix for supper, I hopped in my F-150 and made for the bar... More

Amanda, our waitress, was simply excellent. Our cheese muffins were delicious and piping hot. We shared a BBQ pork plate which was just the right size to split and then shared the best lemon icebox I've EVER had. You will not be disappointed.

We stopped in to try the smoked sausages for lunch because a friend had recommended this. We were not disappointed! The food was excellent. We tried the onion rings which were some of the best I have eaten and also the riblets, which were very tasty. I loved the barbeque sauces. There were many choices on the menu, even for... More

Jim 'N Nick's biscuits are the highlight of the meal. The ribs are fit only for people who don't know what quality barbecue tastes like. Whether your favorite is Tex-Mex, Memphis or Kansas City-style, you won't recognize anything here: the ribs have been boiled tasteless and slathered with too-sweet sauce to hide it.

Stopped by for dinner and sat at the bar. Food and drinks were on the pricey side but service was really good. Had a problem with one of our meals but the manager on duty made everything right. Overall the BBQ is good but probably would not go back.

I'm a big BBQ fan, but my husband isn't---we both enjoyed Jim n Nicks! My pulled pork was delish. My husband raved about his Carolina barbecue sandwich. He is looking forward to a quick return to Jim n Nicks, and so am I!

Whenever we have visitors to the area we are sure to visit Jim 'N Nick's. For a taste of the south you can't go wrong. The food is always good and you can depend on the quality and freshness. Our favorites are the smoked turkey and the ribs. They never disappoint.

We are equally split between eating in and taking-out at Jim N' Nick's. The BBQ ribs and chicken are the best in town ................and............the fried catfish is delicious. Very friendly personnel from the time you enter and throughout the meal. Also very good bartender ( really knows how to mix a good "Old Fashion"). Whenever we are having a large... More
