Please don't pass on the Mac And Cheese

This is some delicious bbq. Very tender, juicy and delicious. The Mac and Cheese is the bomb. Please don't pass up. They give you plenty of cheese biscuits on the side. Everything is always perfect.

Stop at this place driving thru town. Went here because of the reviews and they are not wrong. I had the spare ribs an wife had the classic pulled pork. Best pulled pork she had. Baked bean were the BEST we had. Cheesy bread was awesome And did I say they have about 30, yes 30 Bourbons. Close to hotels.

We were traveling and stopped in Murfreeboro, TN for the night. The hotel recommended this BBQ joint. It was nice and clean. Good drinks. I had the baby back ribs and my husband has the brisket. Both were excellent! I would definitely order the ribs again!!

Wow! The brisket was over the top accented by the awesome baked beans & grilled corn on the Cobb! It was truly one of the best BBQ meals I have ever had. The cheese muffins where a wonderful treat to wet the pallet before the main meal. It is definitely worth the time and effort to stop in. Ask for... More

Only two other places have I had BBQ better - Pappy's in St. Louis and Martin's in Nolensville Tn - HOWEVER, there is no place better with BBQ AND sides. All sides and deserts are scratch made and it show's. As a package deal - BBQ and sides - no other is a good as Jim 'n Nicks.

Stopped by for dinner and was surprised at the prices. Nothing less than $10 on the menu. Not sure how the lunch menu looks. We had the baked potato with BBQ which is huge but they are not generous with the toppings. Very dry and not enough to cover the potato. Over $30 for two of us. Rib meals, BBQ... More

This was well worth our trouble to find off I 24. Jessica brought us the catfish, fried green tomatoes, brisket, sweet tea and -oh my my-pecan pie. We will be back!

We were stopped in Murfreesboro on a cross-country trip. We Googled "BBQ" and this was the top of the list. We drove there, and every single spot in the lot was full on a Sunday at 1 PM. That is a good sign. We had to wait about 20 minutes, and it was worth it. The brisket was delicious, tender,... More
