This place is doing an excellent job of serving tasty animals. The portions are HUGE, the sauce is awesome, and the brunswick is as good as it gets away from my own kitchen. I usually have to add meat and sauce to brunswick to get it to my liking. No need here, no room for more meat. The sandwich comes on a football shaped seemingly home made bun that has enough strength to make the perfect mitt for a softball sized sandwich. This place is definitely in the top 5 I have ever had regarding BBQ. Cannot wait to return and try more menu items. Only negative was the meat was slightly greasy, but not to so much as to detract heavily from my sandwich... : ) Will RETURN FOR SURE!

After spending spring and fall in the area for 7 years, last spring we found Jim's. Went back last night, to make sure last spring's visit was nit a fluke. It wasn't. Baby back ribs were full of good smoky flavor and so very tender and moist. The restaurant is clean and neat. Can't wait to come back!

Stopped in for dinner in a weekend trip to the mountains, and it was delicious! The pork is so tender and flavorful it does not need sauce, but the sauce is too good to pass up! Definitely worth the stop!

Visiting in Blairsville and wanted to get a good local restaurant. This was definitely the place. Huge portions and great quality. Left here stuffed with leftovers! Can you say lunch?

Amazing BBQ. So good it put the other bbq place in town out of biz even though Jim's is 10 min drive outside town in the middle of nowhere. There is a reason it is packed every hour they are open! Nothing fancy...just huge helpings of quality bbq done to perfection. Plenty of bad BBQ here in the mountains. I know, we live here. This is by far the best.
