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

Food is very good but it's overpriced. I can overlook the price but the service usually sucks, it should allways be priority to serve customers in the order that they come in. The wait staff are usually in the corner talking and I have to...More

We had a very friendly server. Her name was Brittney. We arrived late in the evening traveling from Cleveland. We sat at the bar and our server charged our phones. We loved the cheese biscuits. We shared the rib appetizer but only ate a little...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

I went to a men’s conference at my church and they had Jim & Nicks cater. The wings and homemade chips were awesome! Very friendly staff.

Our meal was not bad, but it was not as good as it has been in the past. Service was slow as well. We requested cheese biscuits as soon as we placed our order and it was about 45 minutes before we got them.

In past a great Barbecue Place. Service was poor to say the least. Restroom was a wreck. Portion sizes were different for each person having the same item. Used to, I could never say enough good stuff about this place but today was definitely different.

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.
