She removed the 3rd bun and had a sandwich with 2 meats on it. It was out-of-this-world tasty! They have a variety of libations too with a $5 daily special for the budget-conscious folks.

Great southern barbecue chain, recently taken over by new owners. Unique for these parts, there's no freezers on site at any location, so everything is made fresh each day. Lots of old, loyal customers fear that J&N will become just another quasi-Southern chain style restaurant that will cut corners on the old tried-and-true recipes and service. Jim ' n Nick's... More

I am always trying new things here! From the salads, appetizers and full meals. The biscuits with the special butter will drive to eat a dozen at one time. I tried the riblett dinner w/2 sides. The potatoe salad & mac & chesse are just like home made!!!

We are traveling and stopped by here after using TripAdvisor 's near me now feature. It's an upscale but casual bbq joint in a nice neighborhood. The menu has a lot of variety and something for everyone. Our food came out quickly and everything tasted homemade with plenty of seasoning. Our waitress, however, was very cold and her few positive... More
