Great sandwiches

Had the large pulled pork sandwich. The meat was smoked and very lean. Quite tasty and recommended. Very casual.

I don't know what to say to the folks who loved this place, but it was not what I'd call great, or even good barbecue. Maybe it's a regional thing. Not a lot of character or flavor to the meat, and the sides were pretty mediocre. My son didn't even finish his mac & cheese, and he LOVES Mac &... More

I have eaten here Several times before so I knew it was a good choice for a place to take a collegue when I was staying nearby on a business trip. The food is always good and made fresh (the smokers and piles of wood are right in the back). It is a reasonable value for the price with friendly... More

Here is a testament to the quality of this BBQ: people park on the lawn surrounding the restaurant to find a parking spot. Excellent ribs, fast service, and despite feeling packed, I've never struggled to find a table. The only knock against Jim Dandy's is the taste of the side dishes...just average in my opinion.

Lots of meat and side choices, including turnip greens, good cornbread. Good luck passing this up once you smell the smoke. Good sauces too.

The title says it all! When I entered the establishment, it was strictly business with no smiles. I didn't even get a "Thank You" after paying. The pulled pork was to die for but you didn't get much. It was sort of pricey for the portion size. I gave it 4 out of 5 because the food was that good;... More

I stopped here to try the BBQ. It tasted OK but when it came to value, I didn't think the portions justified the prices. I expected a lot more meat but was disappointed and left, still hungry. You'll pay about $6.50 for a plain (and rather small in my opinion) BBQ sandwich and over $10 for a platter that has... More
