Always enjoy a trip to JN when we are in town. We did the stuffed potato this trip and couldn't finish it!

Solid BBQ place with large portions. Not the best I have ever had, but good for the price. Had a turkey and Carolina pork plate with two sides. Good atmosphere and service. Hope I can make my way back at some point. Matter of fact I might go back tomorrow! I hear the coconut creme pie is awesome!

This company catered my friend's wedding and oh my, it was amazing! The meats were tender, the sides were delicious and I could have eaten a whole basket of their cheesy biscuits.

We are from Indiana and are relocating to the Birmingham area. We stopped in for lunch on the advice from our agent. We are so glad we did. We told our server we were first timers and told him to steer us. He made suggestions for the Memphis chicken and pulled pork. We loved them both!! The biscuits were out... More

The food and service are both top grade. They're spare ribs are quite tasty and big portions. Cole slaw is one of the best I've had. The cheese biscuits are delicious and addicting!

Very neat atmosphere, fairly new, and great tasting good priced food. In town on business and tried it out. Very good flavor and portions, try the white sauce. Pulled pork was good and moist... only complaint would be that they had run out of a couple of the meats before 8pm. Overall great food and flavor.

I was on a family trip with my parents, and we all love good barbecue. This place happened to be near our hotel. It was a great experience. The barbecue was awesome. My parents had the baby back ribs and I had the pork barbecue platter, both excellent. The sides were also good. Our waiter was very attentive, quick, and... More

The best NC style BBQ I've ever had outside the state of NC. The brisket was perfect, the classic pulled pork was great, and those sweet cheesy biscuits were to die for. So glad we discovered this place. I can see why they are so successful!

Has been 10 years plus since I have been here to eat some good ole Bham BBQ. The wait was short, the pulled pork was really moist and full of flavor. Had never had the habanero BBQ sauce before, but it was definitely full of heat. It was good, but I kept going back to the original sauce that made... More
