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

We arrived at lunchtime with 4 adults and 5 small kids and were seated right away ,together. We ordered the large family meal right off of the menu and was amazed at how soon the food arrived and the quantity of the meal. We were delighted. The service and the food were exceptional.

Best bbq and sides going! Their "greens" and cole slaw and biscuits can't be beat. You can get pork, beef and turkey and, also, their chicken is REALLY GOOD! They have a diverse menu and it's a fun and comfortable place to eat. Always a good choice. We take our out of town visitors there and every time we see... More

Since the change in the change in their menu things have gone down hill at Jim and Nicks. On a recent visit with friends I was served several types of salad dressing all of which were liberally spiced with cayenne pepper. The honey mustard was so hot it made my like swell. I had previously discussed my inability to handle... More

Delicious, one of the best bbq dinners I have ever had. The service was great. The side dishes were not an after thought, like most bbq joints, they were small entrees alone. Mac/cheese is a must, muffins must, I could go on. One thing which stood out, the peach tea! Made with small diced pieces of peach so they would... More

The food is good but not great. Went on a Saturday and our waiter got a few of our selections mixed up. Would recommend this for groups where people want BBQ bit are not picky or families with younger children looking for a filling meal.

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.
