Great Lunch!

Awesome BBQ and salads. The portions are huge and very reasonably priced. The lemonade is outstanding and the service was good too. Wish we had one closer to home. If you are in the area, stop in. You won't be disappointed.

I've been to a bunch of BBQ joints and I have to say that this place has the best ribs. They are by far my favorite. You can taste the smokiness on the ribs. The ribs have that thin crust on the outside but tender and fall off the bone on the inside. The baked beans and coleslaw are excellent... More

This place is great for anyone who loves bbq. I thought the portions were generous and perfect for sharing family style. I tried the mild bbq sauce and it was a good blend between sweet and spicy. The cheese biscuits were a little dry for my taste but everything else was perfect. Great service!

Stopped by to pick up a salad with shredded pork and 2 kids meals today. It was only $16 including drinks! I consider this to be cheap for the quality of the food. The pork BBQ was so delicious and all meals were larger than anticipated. Whether you go in for a seated meal or go through the drive thru,... More

This place is nothing close to what it was when it first opened. The bbq ribs were old and dried out. Slopping moire sauce on old ribs did not help.

Jim & Nicks can be an expensive place to eat, but it has proven to be worth it time and again. I enjoy a properly smoked piece of meat that has been done right and not faux smoked. Anyone who has liquid smoke in their kitchen is not a true meat smoker. Jim and Nicks has yet to let me... More

I especially love the brisket, and cheese biscuits. They have a drive-thru which is wonderful to stop by on the fly and get a pound of your favorite.

We ate the half chicken and the daily special, a mac cheese bbq brisket meal. Everything tasted great and came out quickly. The chicken had white bbq sauce, which I've never had before. I cannot describe how good this chicken tasted without understating it because I am not a poet or food critic. Very spicy though, and heavy on the... More

Only popped in for a quick lunch, but the food was plentiful and tasty. Atmosphere was relaxed and homely. Would call in again.
