Always yummy!!!

We might move back to the South for Jim 'N Nick's. My husband loves their baby back ribs, soaked in their original sauce. They also have a good selection of trimmings.

The pork BBQ is amazing!! The homemade potato chips were also top notch, not to mention the blue cheese dip. However, the service is terrible. We waited 48 minutes just for the waitress to take our order. Then waited another hour for our food and after we were done eating, waited another half hour for our check. Really!!??!!

My wife and I live in Savannah Georgia, and we come here when we want to go out for Bar-B-Q. We have eaten here numerous time and it is always FANTASTIC. If you get there early enough in the day, there is a secret sandwich if they haven't run out. I'm not telling you what it is 'cause my wife... More

Not fast food, just good food. Try their homemade jalapeño barbecue sauce if you like it spicy. Wonderful flavor with just the right amount of fire. Good d ides to go along with everything.

Our watress then spent the next 10 minutes talking to an elderly couple two tables over. Food was served by others. Then our watress expected a tip. Terrible service. Food... More

My wife and I enjoy the food here. We usually have it to go so we can eat at home at leisure. I really liked the ribs, which are dry rubbed with sauce on the side. My wife loves the pulled pork sandwich.
