Really Great BBQ

You get so much food for your money, and everything tastes homemade. The cheddar biscuits are something you cannot find anywhere else.

This place has good pork and beef BBQ in sandwiches, plates, salads and bbq nachos .... but they also have vegetables for those of us trying to watch the fat and carbs of fries. They even had collard greens , a southern favorite. Well worth the visit.

Stopped in tonight after a quick stop at a different BBQ place. First one didn't have any beers to wash down the BBQ, so I stopped here to sample more of the options in The Boro. I was by myself so I sat the bar. The bartender was friendly and very attentive. I had two beers that I've never had... More

Stopped here on our way back from Florida. We were wanting some BBQ and were not disappointed. Very fresh food, clean restaurant, warm and friendly staff. My husband had the hot link appetizer. It was too spicy for me but he declared it perfect. BBQ salad was excellent, ask for the BBQ ranch dressing. The home made hand cut BBQ... More

We met some dear friends for a quick bite before we watched Unbroken. Feeling a bit daring, I ventured away from my standard brisket plate and went for the brisket quesadilla. Our waiter took good care of us and kept our tea glasses full. Hint: spend an extra buck so that you get the brisket over the pork...it's worth it.

Kameron was our Waiter. We ate at Jim N Nick's BBQ in Murfreesboro, TN 12/18/14 evening. We both had ribs and they were delicious. The sides were wonderful "country cookin'". If we stay in Murfreesboro, TN again, we would not hesitate to eat there again.

My parents come to Tennessee to visit for holidays. My dad always insists on going to Jim and Nick's for their sticky ribs. Everything is made from scratch! Their cheese biscuits at the beginning of the meal are like dessert before dinner! The last time we were there, I got the combo baby back ribs and pulled pork. If you... More
