Quick lunch on the go

We had pulled pork sandwiches and it was really good - liked that there was large chunks of pork and it wasn't completely shredded. Only had two options for BBQ sauce and would like more options. The homemade chips are delicious!

Ok barbecue but not great...lots of food, lots of carbs, lots of people. The Cracker Barrel of barbecue? There are too many other really good restaurants in Charleston.

There were so many places to choose from and we wanted authentic Southern food! We didn't really care about spending good money for good quality. But Jim N Nick's was way beyond our expectations! We shared two meals. The combination brisket, pulled pork, and ribs. We picked collared greens which were excellent and fries. It came with corn muffins. Everything... More

We ate here with our two children 3 and 5. It was quick to get our food, but was a little slow with drink refills. It didn't seem like there were many waiters. The food seemed pricey for what it was, but at least we got large portions. We loved the cheese biscuits. I'm not sure we would eat here... More

Mac & cheese is to die for, slaw was good, baked beans were smoky, cheese biscuits were amazing! We ordered sides to go and loved everything!

It was close to our hotel in N Charleston. The food was salty, my hotlinks looked and tasted off - the skins were wrinkled like they were way overdone - I didn't eat and the server didn't comment on me leaving 3 behind or offer a box so I guess he wasn't surprised. My beef was dry,. and the meal... More

This was a great place to just sit and relax over good food and drink. Decided to have the Fried Green Tomatoes sandwich and fries. It was delicious and very filling. It was on special and worth a try. You order your food in a line and then they serve it to you as you are seated. Didn't try what... More

Fantastic Pulled Pork, Turkey and sides. Great Bar area and bar tender. You order and take a number to your table and the food is brought out to you. It's great for lunch or dinner and there is just something about the place that had me and my wife return twice on a recent visit. The red illuminated pig hanging... More

We can't find much to complain about in charleston and this is on the list of good food. You get a massive amount of food for a reasonable price. Pulled pork is the best of the meats and try the nachos with brisket.
