I love to drive thru and pick up their Southern Chopped Salad with smoked chicken. This has also been a family favorite for years. From BBQ to burgers to salads they have a great menu.

We visited Jim N Nicks on a Saturday to watch college football. Our server was extremely friendly. Our food was hot and delicious. One of my favorite places to eat.
