This has got to be one of the best places we have stopped to eat! On our way to Florida from Iowa we stopped here with a group of 8 people. It was a Saturday night and pretty busy. We were seated very quickly! We maybe waited 20 minutes. I wish I could remember the name of our server because... More

I think someone need to take a close look at the service you are giving your customers. A more correct statement would be to say "NOT" giving their customers. Today I visited Jim & Nicks for lunch as I have often done. I might need to add that I only get an HOUR for lunch and I work very close... More

Usually stop here once a week for take out… Huge portion sizes and the chicken is always extremely tender! Also love the mac & cheese and fried green tomatoes...their catfish is always really good and my favorite in Murfreesboro!

My husband loves the ribs here. They have the best hot cheese biscuits you have ever tasted. I usually eat too many, then too full for dinner. LOL

Our last visit here was not so good (they did not get our drive through order right). After a customer survey where I reported it, I received a call from a manager and ultimately got a gift card in the mail to try it again. The restaurant was very empty (it was a Tuesday night) and only a few seats... More

I gave this restaurant a 3 because their food is usually good. However when we arrived today there was a "shift change" and couldn't seat us even though there were several empty tables. Sounds like management should step it up...too many choices in this town!

Your mouth starts watering when you smell the bar-b-q from the parking lot. Our service was very good. The corn muffins are addicting - it is easy to eat several. Be careful if you are counting calories. Bar-b-q flavor was as good as the smell suggested.

I eat at BBQ places all over the US and I think the Jim & Nicks in Murfreesboro is as consistently Excellent as any place I've tasted. I love the brisket and pulled pork and all the sides.

Thank Paul B
