We had a nice light lunch here. I was getting pretty crowded so are service felt a little rushed. The pulled pork is good and their collard greens are pretty good. They have a full bar which is nice. But you can get pretty filled up on their cheese biscuits. All in all a pretty good lunch.

Located on King Street, so it's in the heart of the shopping district. Music a little loud, and the ribs were slightly salty. Pulled pork was good, and sides a little light for price. There is better BBQ all over the area, but if you are in downtown and need to eat, it will do.

Really enjoyed this barbeque restaurant on Kings Street. It's a cafeteria type entrance, but the food is brought to your table with a smile. Full bar, great options, like your bbq in a salad, loved the cornbread and the collard greens. Really glad we stopped

Had the beef brisket platter with mash potatoes and Mac n cheese. The brisket was amazing and just fell apart. No need to cut with knife. The potatoes had a little kick to it which were really good along with the Mac n cheese. The meal also came with two like corn bread rolls which were amazing too. Recommend this... More

Four days in Charleston and everyone greeted us with great smiles until we came to Jim and Nicks for dinner. Would never go back or recommend this place to others because the service was awful. When we went to place our order, a young girl named Taylor was so unfriendly -didn't smile and seemed like she was being bothered to... More

BBQ was on the to do list for our first trip to South Carolina. The food was awesome. I tried the double decker sandwich which had pulled pork and brisket. The sauce was awesome. The service was great. I liked that they had some local beers on tap.
