If you like ribs this is the place. I had 2# of spare ribs. Very delicious very meaty. BBQ sauce tasty. Good variety of items to order. Tasty cheese biscuits and southern type side dishes. Prices very moderate compared with the amount and quality received.

My wife and I were in the area visiting friends and they suggested we stop here for great BBQ. It was a great suggestion with wonderful BBQ and even better service. All of the food was delicious and there is a nice warm homey atmosphere. The portions are large as well. You are not going to leave hungry or disappointed.

Ordered the 2 meat combo & took some home. They are consistently good on both the food & service. I really should come here more often.

I was staying at the hotel next door, so it was an easy walk over to pick up food to go. I just wanted 3 chicken tenders -- and when I got the food back to my room, I found a black hair wrapped around the first tender. I was so hungry and it was already late, so I just... More

Great food. Had a hamburger that was one of the best I've had! Delicious corn muffins to snack on while waiting for your food.

Typical Jim 'n Nick's Bar-B-Q. Food was decent but nothing spectacular. Service was good. Good location.
