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!

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

Visited with local friends, and I was looking forward to a local microbrew with my Q. Unfortunately, I did not have my photo ID, and even though I am obviously much older than 18, I could not get a beer. The manager claimed that it is "state law" in Alabama that EVERYONE must show ID (a VERY broad interpretation of... More

My fellow co-workers raved about the food here so on my last visit i gave it a try. I was not disappointed the place was packed for lunch. However our food came out very quickly. The lunch menu listed several options and my selection did not disappoint. The food was great and the service was even better. The server recognized... More
