Warm, cole slaw and cool baked beans. Yum. Then top it off with fatty cool, dry BBQ. No sign of any sauce anywhere in the box. One word.... "Bob's". Jim needs a microwave.

Epic fail today I am sorry to report. Jim N Nick's BBQ is one of our all-time favorites but today's visit left a bad taste. We both ordered the classic pulled pork plate with potato salad & beans. The sides were extremely tasty as always; my husband's pork was great...mine was almost 50% inedible. Gristle, fat and a big nasty... More

This is a high quality very consistent chain BBQ restaurant. I highly recommend it over others that call themselves "famous". The ribs were tender and not overly sauced. The hot links were excellent and the banana puddin' was outstanding.

Was really looking forward to those ribs after the reviews but we were so disappointed with the dry,chewy ribs. Very generous portions but too much work to finish. Prefer ribs where the meat almost falls off the bone. Tough and no spice to speak of. Also read that the homemade barbecue chips were a treat but found them tasteless as... More

This restaurant was suggested by our hotel staff. They send a lot of guests there and said we would have food left over so we tried to order small. We each ordered a loaded baked potato and split a salad. The potatoes were huge and we did have food left over. Great service and great food!

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
