Wow. Probably some of the best pulled pork I've ever had. Very tender, excellent smoked flavor. The cole slaw was great. The homemade barbeque chips on the side were perfect. Chips and salsa to start. The server was prompt, kept the drinks full. Great food & value. When in Smyrna, you have to eat here.

I have had the pulled pork and it is perfect. The loaded potato is really loaded. I have enjoyed every meal that I have had at Jim and Nicks. Good service too.

WT#!!! Ha, I guess everyone has a bad day now and then, and this was the managers bad day, we saw him coming out to a table every 3 minutes to apologize. We were flexible, ordered pulled pork, enjoyed our meals, and the sides. Had an option of two different sauces on the table, I liked the spicy. It was... More

First of all, the kids meals are great. Two pork sliders with a side of baked mac and cheese and lemonade are my kids favorites and truthfully, more than enough for an adult. The loaded baked potato with pulled pork is huge and an excellent value. When we dine in, my son finds free refills on milk the best thing... More

I don't know what has happened to this place, but it is good. The service was spot on, and the food was very good. You have to make sure you get some cheesy bread, it is off the charts good. Keep up the good work! We are very pleased!

This used to be a great place to eat, but my last couple of visits have disappointed, food is good but I've noticed the servings have got smaller and the service is not too good either. lots of choice now in Smyrna, this place is not in my top 6

Going to Nashville area (15 miles south) and not getting Bar-B-Q is like going to NY City and not pizza. This place is authentic, tasty, and service awesome. Server suggested smoked turkey & brisket. So, I got both. Brisket not fatty and turkey was moist. Sauce was tangy and the house made pickles complimented to perfection. Banana pudding finished the... More

The BBQ was not worth half of what they charge for the taste or the portions. Stay away from the devilled eggs, good but nothing special and not for $1.25 each half. The server could have cared less that we were there and seemed bothered when we needed water or tea. The sweet tea is not what I would consider... More

This is a good bbq place. I like the fact they have spare ribs and not just baby back. The potato salad is the best in Smyrna. The place is clean and they have a large bar area. Service is usually good also.
