Seriously, best BBQ anywhere. Fantastical sides, super sweet people and AMAZING BBQ. Half chicken is smoked and juicy and bbq sauce is amazing, home made.

We love the Ribs at Jim's There are always juicy and full of flavor. My wife likes the BBQ sauce, but I like them plain as they test so great. Jim's BBQ pork is also very good. Cole slaw and fries are excellent.

Average tasting...nothing great. Was highly recommended, but didn't meet my expectations. The stew was horrible.
