“Excellent food, service lacking ”

Jim 'N Nicks Bar-B-Q
Ranked #74 of 2,625 Restaurants in Charlotte
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$8 - US$20
Description: 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.

Excellent food, pulled pork sandwich and mac and cheese were awesome! The free biscuits are amazing! Unfortunately our overall experience was tainted by a server who kept disappearing. We had to flag him down for refills and sat for ages with empty dishes before being cleared and getting our bill. The restaurant at the time only had a handful of tables occupied and other servers besides himself working. We would definitely go back because the food was awesome! Just hope for better service next time.

We've eaten at Jim 'N Nicks in Steele Creek many times, most recently for lunch a couple weeks ago. It's always been busy and the food has been good. My favorite is brisket, with collards and mac and cheese.

We ate here on a tip from the Manager at Hilton Homewood Suites. I asked him for a good BBQ place that the locals love. He provided us with Jim "n Nicks. He couldn't have recommended a better place. It was a Friday night and the place was buzzing, but we were seated right away. Our friendly server came over took our drink order and that was followed up by a basket of their fresh delicious muffins. The pulled pork sandwich was excellent as was the sides of BBQ baked beans, slaw and mac 'n cheese. Too bad we were only in town for one night. It would be my go to place if I lived in Charlotte.

The BBQ is really good. I had the beef. Other family members had the pork. It was really tasty, and the portions were plentiful. The mac & cheese was cheesy - very good. The slaw was great. I'm told the bake beans have some zing. The local craft IPA was a perfect match. This is part of a southern chain, but you wouldn't know it by the quality of the food.
