“Good ribs, but not consistant”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Since I live in the area I get to visit Jim's frequently. Their offering of ribs and pulled pork used to be at competition level. Definitely the best in these parts according to any of us locals! Unfortunately they have not been able to maintain their superb quality and keep up with demand. Their BBQ is still very good but not as excellent as it one was!

“Ran out of food 45 minutes to close”
Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

As said in title they didn't have half the menu. Turkey was good, pulled pork was decent. Not bad, but not top 10 worthy.

“Now voted one of the best BBQ places on the earth by Tripadvisor.”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

Donna and Jim are hands down some of the best folks we know and they make the best BBQ on the earth. Even Tripadvisor agrees. There is not a bad meal in the house. Tripadvisors recent article on BBQ rates Jims as better than any other place including Texas and North Carolina. The ribs the pork, its all crazy good and you are crazy if you don't stop in for a bite.

“The BEST BBQ I've ever eaten”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

Jim's Smokin' Que is far and away the best barbecue I've ever eaten. I've had their ribs, pulled pork, BBQ chicken and a number of their sides and desserts. Everything is outstanding. Jim and Donna Guess have created a food magnet here in Blairsville, because the place is always packed. They are only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday so plan accordingly. I've never been there when there isn't a line waiting to sample their food, but the wait is never too long and you'll soon know all the people around you as they are all friendly. The portions are large, delicious and the price is amazingly small for what you get. Staff are personable and courteous. It's a must try if you're ever in the mountains of North Georgia.
