The BBQ here is delicious but the bread is the best! The service is good and the location is great. You won’t go wrong stopping here for BBQ.

Their barbecue is amazing! I'm not a fan of their fries, but everything else I've had is great. The last thing I had was a barbecue sandwich for lunch and it was delicious. I've gotten a family dinner before and I wasn't disappointed in anything...More

Given the good words I'd heard about Jim & Nick's, I have to say I found the flavor of the meats a bit lackluster. No real noticeable smoke flavor on the brisket or chopped (?) "Carolina style" pork, despite an impressive looking smoker out front....More
