I visited Jim and Nick's with my family and it was delicious! My boyfriend was asking around for, "The Best BBQ in Charleston". Some local family members recommended it. After walking around Charleston on a hot day, the beer was cold and the service was quick. It was very informal but friendly. I had the pulled pork which was delicious.... More

We had read about this restaurant before arriving in Charleston and decided to try it for lunch. Excellent choice. While the emphasis in on bar-b-que they do offer other menu items. That said I can't imaging ordering something othere than their bar-b-que. It is excellent. Your order at the counter and they bring out your food. The wait staff is... More

Nick's is a clean and nicely done restaurant on King Street. The food was well prepared, served quickly and looked as good as it tasted. The ribs and pulled pork were cooked properly and tasted great. The sides were a mix of good and average. The beans and slaw were good while the mac/cheese and watermelon were average. Overall it...

We had the hands-down best BBQ lunch at Jim 'N Nick's! Their restaurant is a must-visit! We tried every side along with their fried chicken and BBQ. It was all amazing!

My husband jumped out of the car to grab take out here. He got me the chicken club sandwich. It was beyond amazing for a pretty standard sandwich. The chicken was really juicy. The tomato and lettuce very fresh. They made it to order, so it took a little longer. But all in all it was awesome. My husband had... More

My family hit Jim 'N Nick's while shopping on King St. It was great food and we were in and out very quickly. The only thing I didn't like is that the cheddar cheese biscuits didn't come with the food, you have to buy them extra.

However, on Fri. the 15th we had already made... More
