My husband and I ate at Jim 'n Nick's for the first time on our way home from Orange Beach. We'll be back next trip. Black eyed peas were a daily special and had lots of flavor without being heavy on grease. The collards were the same. The little cheese muffin-biscuits were also very good. My husband reports that the... More

Food is consistently good and service is good as well. Sometimes there is quite a wait during the lunch or dinner rush (of course, that isn't their fault). But this time we were in and out in record time n spite of the crowd. More parking would be nice. We each had the pork plate and both of us were... More

Jim 'N Nicks is one of the best places to eat BBQ in Alabama! The cheese biscuits brought out before the actual meal are a lure to come and enjoy yourself!

This place is the best in the area hands down! From the cheese biscuits (which are light fluffy and amazing!) we started with the Bar-B-Q Nachos. We had fried catfish - flaky, tender and cooked to perfection, the pork hot links (my personal favorite - they are big and spicy and juicy - a great trio!), an enormous pork bar-b-q... More

We have been to this location several times. The service is always great. The barbecue is some of the best around. They have the best fried catfish in Birmingham. Don't forget to try the cheese muffins. They are one of a kind and a must have.

We had friends visit from out of town (party of 8) and we had a wonderful experience. The service was very good. Our drinks kept coming without getting empty. Food was awesome. We had everything from hamburger to BBQ (love the white sauce). We had such a wonderful experience that we lost track of time and were there an hour... More
