I always enjoy good BBQ and Jim 'n Nick's is on my short list of good "chain restaurant" BBQ joints.

Excellent pulled pork served with French fries that are hand cut. The cheddar biscuits are a great starter. The service was decent but not great or over the top. It's a very busy restaurant.

Took the teens to dinner and decided to take them to one of my fave restaurants. The servuce was great as usual. AJ was our server and he went above and beyond. He answered every question, made suggestions and provided excellent customer service. They loved it! We will be returning. We visited the Riverchase location!

Jim and Nick's is always consistent....best BBQ and yummy cheese biscuits. Something on the menu for everyone. Out-of-towners always request ribs and beans! Can't go wrong with whatever you order.

A great place to eat. The food is consistently good and customer service is very good. Be prepared to pay more here than at other local Barbecue restaurants in town.

Jim 'n Nicks is consistently a good choice for barbeque and more. Had the piggie in the garden. Salad was fresh and the brisket was moist and flavorful. Sides are excellent also.

Very good food, good service and easy to find location. Very near the Galleria Shopping Mall. We find the barbecue among the best in Birmingham, but they have other selections as well if that is not what you want. Good atmosphere as well.

We stopped here for lunch and it was very enjoyable. I had the loaded mac n cheese. You could tell it was homemade (and had huge deposits of oohy gooey cheddar cheese) and was topped with the pulled pork. Very good! As were the cheese biscuits. Our service wasn't great but he got the job done. Worth a visit!
