First time in one of these restaurants which are throughout the Southeast, but I was not disappointed. Ordered the brisket/rib combo and both were delicious. Sides were fantastic and the service was great. Throw in a ice cold Yuengling and I'm a happy guy!

Was on the way to Hilton Head and saw this place.Thought OK great Carolina Bar-b-que. I ordered the baked potato with bar-b-que.Potatoe was huge but bar-b-que just not sweet and had a lot of tough pulled bar-b-que in it.Could not chew it..Have to say not even close to the best I've ever had..

Our family had assorted BBQ meats and really enjoyed it. All were done right and fresh. Really liked the sides like the beans, slaw and fries. I look for good BBQ where I go and surprised how good it was. Not like another Jim N Nicks I had gone to. Would definitely go back to this location.

Decent here. Long wait, good service. Food was above average, everything definitely has the smoky bbq flavor so you need to like the smoky taste.

The CLT Jim and Nick's was a bad first time visit to this chain. This time the lunch BBQ was decent. Service was good. Lunch plate was about $10. Overall would return again

Decided to go out to dinner Saturday nite and picked Jim N Nicks Bbq it turned out to be a great choice, good food big selection at reasonable prices. Our server Randy couldn't have been any more attentive to our needs. The manager Jenifer came by to see if everything was satsfactory, everything couldn't have been better, we will return.

Always a go-to place for good barbecue. The food is great and the servers are always bright and cheery. It can get a little loud so if you are looking for an intimate place to have a conversation without fighting the roar of the crowd this may not be your place. Take-out is always an option if you just want... More
