It's really not bad, but BBQ in the south is a full on competition. Jim 'N Nick's is good, but it's not the best by a long shot. For one, it has too much of a chain feel. Second, I've been three times now and every single time they have gotten our order wrong. They have ALWAYS made amends and... More

The stuffed baked potato is my favorite. Best wait staff, they are already on it. The Brunswick Stew was flavorful and they did not skimp on ingredients.

Jim and Nicks strikes me as the "Longhorn" of barbecue and I mean that in a good way. The atmosphere is casual and has that "chain" restaurant feel. Last trip I started with the devil eggs and they were as usual delicious. My meal consisted of the beef brisket barbecue, slaw, and mac&cheese. The beef brisket is a nice portion,... More

Our visit was pleasant. Short wait, good food, excellent service. Would highly recommend. This place was recommended to me by my spouse and other folks. Well worth the drive.

I found Jim "N Nick's Bar-B-Q to be a pleasant atmosphere with wonderful personnel. Our waitress brought everything we asked for and even other waiter/waitress would ask if we needed anything? Food was delicious. My favorite "Pig in a Potato Patch" with ranch and 1000 Island dressing. Good restaurant for your children and all family. If you don't want BBQ,... More

Adequate servings of southern BBQ And side dishes . Service was not at the level that we believe acceptable for us or the families surrounding us.

First let me say, we originally ate at the Hiram, GA, Jim N Nick's BBQ location a few days before we ate at this Smyrna, GA, location. We liked the food and service at the first one so much, when we played baseball at a high school close to this one, we decided to have a late lunch at Jim... More

We went on a lunch get-together and ended up here as a fall-back but really glad we did! It was a busy lunch time but the service was still great. We were seated quickly, drinks arrived almost immediately and never went dry. Server was very fun and friendly, and the food was quite wonderful. The barbecue was good and smoky... More

We live in another state and were visiting family in the area and they took us here for dinner for the first time. The food was ok nothing special and the service was slow. There were 3 tables that were seated after us and there orders were taken before a server ever came to our table.
