I usually go through the drive thru at JimnNick's. I get the family meal: a pound of pulled pork or chicken, sometimes turkey, two pint sides, and biscuits or buns. You can't beat that for a family of 4! Our favorite sides are their fries,...More

Jim 'N Nick's BBQ is one of the best things about living in Alabama! Very friendly service whether you dine in or carry out. Drive thru is often quite lengthy. Extremely tasty pie, but pricey.

I was unimpressed with the BBQ here. I ordered brisket and chopped pork (Carolina style). The brisket came plated with the house BBQ sauce already applied. The brisket was a little dry. The pork has very little if any seasoning. I had baked beans and...More

We went as soon as they opened up on a Saturday. The biscuits are phenomenal. I had the Carolina shredded pork and my girlfriend had the loaded potato. You can’t go wrong here. The service was outstanding. Try it!

The hostess and our server seemed mad to from the start to have customers in the restaurant. The service we received was horrible. Our drinks were never refilled and we eventually had to ask to get more tea. The portions on two out of the...More

Ribs. Pork. Chicken. Brisket. Hell, even sausage. All BBQ has the same three basic ingredients: smoke, meat and time. What makes it different is the amount, consideration and attention to each part of that recipe. That, and some really great bbq sauce, too. At Jim ‘N Nick’s, we pride ourselves on using the right ingredients, taking our time and honoring the traditions that brought us barbecue.
