I love the smoked pork, my personal favorite. Several sides to choose from and the chees biscuits are totally amazing! The staff greets you at the door and interact with you during your entire presence there. They offer several different BBQ sauces from mild to very spicey so you're sure to find one to suit your taste buds. They have... More

The food was very good and great service. We ordered the sampler BBQ platter, also coleslaw was pretty good.

We stopped in for lunch as Jim 'N Nick's is one of our favorite restaurants for lunch in Southlands. As is usually the case, service was speedy and friendly. For lunch, we favor the sandwiched: pulled pork and beef brisket - always very tasty. For dinner, we favor the baby back ribs.

Carolina pork is always cold, and they never give enough for one serving. I will say the smoked prime rib is very good and I will go back for that.

I'm a big fan of Jim N Nick's BBQ. It's a little over priced compared to other BBQ establishments in my opinion, but the food is really good and much better than those of other chain competitors. If you go, try the brisket loaded baked potato. It's HUGE and very yummy! I'd be surprised if you could actually finish it... More

Great food. Rather loud atmospher but, the food could be worth it. The price is quite high. Wait staff good.

I've been here several times. It's usually crowded so that probably plays into the slow service but it's still painfully slow at times. I've tried take out and they are disorganized and slow as well. The most entertaining thing I've run into was a month or two ago I called for a takeout order but they had run out of... More

Although Texas Roadhouse is a great place for steaks, if you are looking for solid BBQ this is the place to go. BBQ is all they do and they do it very, very well. Add craft beers, attentive service, and a solid selection of sides at a reasonable price, this has quickly become our go-to place for dinner out.

Been awhile, year plus, since I've been here. Menu has changed, I'm sure multiple times, prices took a hike. Had smoked mushroom Swiss bacon burger, good. Service was fast but bogged down a little due some extra tables coming in.
