The Sauces are the BOMB!

So, what ever you order, please, do yourself a favor and try the two different sauces on the table. They are the BOMB! Just smother the grilled chicken on top of your salad in it (yes, try it!), just dip your fries in them, add them to your beed brisket or your pulled pork sandwich. OMG, you won't... read more

First-timer at Jim 'N Nicks. Sat at the bar. Friendly staff. Vince the bartender was very attentive. Love the pulled pork sandwich. Their "original concoction" BBQ sauce is made from scratch and is "to die for!" Great place! The fact that it was convenient and quick was a plus. Will definately be back if ever in Charlotte again.

We visited this restaurant in December 2014 and found it to have delicious offerings! We were a party of four and tried four different menu items which were all delicious. The chicken as well as the pork and beef brisket were all great! It really is hard to make just one choice here. All of the sides were very good... More

Stopped in for a quick bite, dodging raindrops. Excellent pulled pork and chicken sandwiches and Mac the Cheese sides will tide us over for the afternoon. Quick smiley service. Great place.

I don't like BBQ and I went to this place twice. The pie and biscuits were so good, I got them to go a few times just because.

Went there for a quick meal before the concert and service and food were right on the mark! BBQ plate with sides was just right and the Panini with soup was great-even took half home.

We went to this restaurant on a saturday, it wasn't too crowded. The food was not expensive but not cheap at all. Some of the dishes were good but some were very average and close to mediocre. The sides were good, but thats not too impressive. The dishes were at an average portion, so if your hungry, you will eat... More

Was traveling alone for work so sat at the bar-- lots of bourbon on display. Other spirits are stowed behind the the counter. Also some local craft beers on tap. I don't usually eat by myself so felt self-conscious but the bartender was really nice and talkative (if you wanted that) and food appeared literally 2 seconds after I ordered... More

My husband brought a smoked turkey sandwich to our hotel room the first night we were in town. With the two sauces, absolutely amazing. Best turkey sandwich ever w perfect smoke and full of juice. The next day we all went back for lunch. Not sure what the bartender's name is (young, blonde) but she remembered my husband's and our... More
