Cheese biscuits YUMMY!!

We love this place because the food is really good. Great smokey flavor, ribs fall off the bone. Placed an order to go and they were out of the smoked chicken at 8 p.m. This was a little disappointing. Manager gave extra biscuits and brisket to make up for it. Really you can't go wrong here... read more

1st visit, I enjoyed myself. Friendly Staff, the service was fast, the best food on my plate was "the BACON"! I had to ask for more.

A friend and I went to dinner there tonite. We had a queso appetizer that was quite good. Then my entre was the small portion of baby back ribs....I was truly disappointed. The ribs were way, way overdone....I almost thought they may have been reheated. I had baked beans and a cucumber salad, both ok. Jim had one of their... More

This is very good bbq, delicious side, but small portions, we ordered a pound of one meat dish and a couple of bbq dinner plates and it was all pretty good, but the sides portions were small.

My family and I went to Jim N' Nick's Bar-B-Q last night for dinner. The southern food was delicious. The waiters were fantastic and we loved the atmosphere. Over all a great trip, a good look at southern food too.

A great go to place any day of the week. The corn muffins are enough to bring you back. Pig in the Garden salad at lunch is a great meal. Some nights on the way home from work, I'll go through the drive through to pick up some Ribs and Macaroni and cheese to take home. Very Consistent.

My family is full of picky eaters but we all were able to find something great at the restaurant. The staff was friendly and were pretty good at refilling beverages in a timely manner. Restaurant was a bit noisy but still pleased with experience.

My wife and I have eaten here many times. Food is always good, service friendly, and atmosphere casual - all 3 just like I like them. I would highly recommend them. And the prices are reasonable. Can't beat it!

Jim N Nicks is noted for bbq and for good reason. Portions are big and are very good. Brunswick Stew is one of our favorites when we eat here. Sandwiches are generous and tasty. My only criticism is their use of buttered toasted bread. It makes the sandwiches messy.
