Our Go To Restaraunt

Growing up in Texas, it is hard to get BBQ that tastes like I remember. The closest thing I have found is Jim N Nicks. The food is fresh and the taste is dependably great. Our favorite meat is the pulled pork. The chicken is also a great choice. The brisket is a little to dry for my taste... read more

This barbecue restaurant is near the Holiday Inn Express Hotel in Murfreesboro, TN. We dined there on a "Taco Tuesday" and my wife and daughter enjoyed their respective catfish and fried chicken tacos dinners at $10.00 each. I opted for the beef brisket plate which was really good, but was rather high priced at $17.00.

This place has great bbq. I had the sliced brisket.It was really tender. They also serve these cheddar muffin things and they are delicious! They kept bringing them and I kept eating them. The wait staff was very good as well. I would go back again.

I rarely eat at food chains but, Jim n nicks is one of the better food chains. If you like vinegar base pork it's very good. The roasted corn on the cob With special white sauce is great. Our server was friendly and restaurant was clean. Prices were reasonable. I will eat here again.

I love the food at Jim and Nicks. The service is always great and the food always delicious. I love the brisket and the cheese biscuits. The price however is a bit steep for BBQ.

Jim N' Nicks really is good eating. This one, in Murfreesboro, isn't as good as the one in Smyrna right up the road. Maybe it's the setting, just off a major artery, but there is something a bit dingy about the atmosphere here. the cheese biscuits are as good as anywhere, but the salads and the burgers are just almost....

Absolutely lovely! First Bar-B-Q restaurant I have eaten in and I was well impressed. Had everything you could imagine! Plus the quality and quantity of the food you get is outstanding. Will definitely be coming here again before I go back to England.

We don't eat out a whole lot, but when we do we really enjoy Jim 'N Nicks. It has become one of our go to's for simple reasons. Reliability-The food has always been great., the service has always been good, maybe a little slow when real busy but that is understandable, and everyone who works there has always been friendly...

We have enjoyed Jim N Nicks for years. That has gradually been coming to an end recently. The last time I went there in Spring 2015, I was underwhelmed. Tried it one more time. This time, the menu has changed (prices up!) . Ordered a simple meal of iced tea, pork sandwich with pickles, and bbq beans. After a 35... More

We frequently eat at Jim and Nicks. They have a great choice of smoked meats, salads, HUGE baked potatoes, sandwiches. That's all good, but what is best are their cheese biscuits. I think of them more as cheese corn muffins - they are light, fresh and delicious. I think Jim and Nicks is slightly overpriced but the food and service... More
