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.

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.

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.
