I had a combo of pulled pork and chicken and my wife had baby back ribs plus the trimmings. We could not possible eat it all. Our waitress Jamie was very helpful and... read more

The place was clean. Staff was friendly. The cheddar muffins are amazing. We had pulled pork, brisket, ribs and chicken legs at our table. Everything was great! Loved the sides too. We had collard greens and green beans. Yum!

Above average service with appropriate decor. Excellent location. Predictably good food each visit. Slightly overpriced.

We ate here during lunch hour, and the service was A+. We didn't have to wait too long for our meals. Everything was very tasty!

On our way to Florida, we stayed in Murfreesboro and the hotel reservation person suggested this restaurant. Our server was Alexander who was very attentive without being annoying. The spicy blood Mary's were delicious, as were the salads and cheese biscuits. My husband had half rack of baby back ribs with salad and homemade BBQ chips and he said they... More

We shared the baby back ribs with baked beans, cole slaw and mac an cheese. The food was very good. Our server was Alex who was friendly,... More

We've been here several times over the past few years and have never been disappointed. My wife was looking for a good place to hold here retirement party this past year and decided on Jim N' Nicks on Thompson Lane because of the events room available in the front of the resturant. The manager was very helpful in helping to... More

We decided to give this place a try since we had never been. Like the title says - I made 2 trips out of it....my first and last! They never brought us any bread. Granted, this was probably more of an issue with the server than the restaurant. But then our food arrived. Eeek. I had a basic pulled pork... More
