We did carry out from here. This was not the first time that we have used this restaurant, but this time the food was not as tasty as before and the baked potato was not completely done and the chicken was tough. There is another...More

The salad, ribs and corn breads were excellent. The server was very patient and nice. I ordered a salad to go for my vegetarian mother. The server patiently customized her salad (no bacon, no cheese, lots of nut topping, and very tasty clear dressing). She...More

I've been to Jim and Nick's many times. Although it's never my choice, out of town guests somehow seem to choose it, when we go out to eat. It seems to be getting less and less enjoyable. Take out hasn't gone well. I was asked...More

I saw this restaurant on The Chrisley's. My family and I checked it out and was pleasantly surprised. My husband raved about the macaroni and cheese. My son and I had burgers which were very good.

Wait staff is excellent. Brisket cuts with a fork. Baked beans pretty good. A touch pricey, but there is a hostess to seat you, and a wait staff. Standard sides for a barbecue joint. They also sell a variety of rubs, and their super delicious...More

A lot of money was put into this BBQ joint.. The food doesn't really match up with the expectations. We were first served a small basket of Corn Muffins.. we think.. They were both doughy and over cooked at the same time.. you know.. Crispy...More
