Stopped in for lunch thinking "overpriced big name chain BBQ". It was anything but!!! Had BBQ chicken and fries. The white sauce was wonderful and had a kick and complemented the red BBQ sauce. Fries weren't greasy at all. Got a basket of cheddar biscuits with honey butter first and they were oh so good. Marshall was our waiter and... More

Saturday night with family. Great for kids just not for littlest ones. Not enough space between tables. Special was smoked prime rib were too aggresive and was distracting from very fine piece of meat. If was fork tender. Huge baked potatoes. The locals love their cheesy macaroni side. I had the 1/2 rack of baby back ribs. These were outstanding... More

We eat here all the time. We've been getting the bulk order of BBQ, buns, beans. slaw and a side of cheese biscuits. They are DELICIOUS! I think it's a better value for take out for my family. If you eat in and the weather is nice eat on the patio. It's delightful. If it's hot tho I would suggest... More

The food is decent and always consistent at any location of this chain. I think it is a bit pricey, but understand you're paying for real estate/location and not necessarily food quality. Service is always cordial and efficient. Service is always cordial and efficient.

Went to Jim n Nicks with friends and were attended promptly. Food was great and had some of their Kentucky Bourbon beer. Wow, that beer was really good and nothing like I thought it to be. Highly recommend giving it a shot and their menu as well. Sat in the bar area as it was less noisy and easier to... More

The food was good I ordered the pulled pork and everything was great. Nice BBQ with extra sauce provided. The mashed potatoes and mac/cheese was great and I was pretty full when I finished. The food was good and I was full enough when I left there pricing does seem a bit high for what they are offering. Also watch... More

The food use to be great. The prices were reasonable. But that walked out the door. The last few years the prices have skyrocketed and the portions have been trimmed. I have decided I will spend my hard earned money at another restaurant instead of over paying. The owners of this chain need to wake up to America that you... More

Overall, when it comes to BBQ joints in Smyrna, my personal favorite is our Jim & Nick's. The food is absolutely delicious whether you dine in (where I've always received stellar service) or get food to-go (they also have a drive thru!). I've even been catered the food at work and it was amazing as well! Every meat and side... More
