The food is good and so is the service but the parking situation is dangerous. The drive through was wrapped around the building and you couldn’t park or move. We will not come back until this is fixed.

I've been to Jim 'N Nick's many many times and experiences were consistent at all locations. This time we were passing through and took some people who had never been there before and they loved it. The cheese biscuits are heavenly. The ribs are excellent!...More

I mean it was okay. Kind of surprised it has such a high rating though to be honest. Maybe I just didn’t have the right expectations? It was average at best. The biscuits were really good. I had the loaded baked potato with chicken...which I...More

To be perfectly honest, I am a bit of a snob when it comes to certain foods, especially BBQ. They have a good selection on their menu and the service was very good. A lot of people like their food based on the number of...More

Jim 'n Nick's in Trussville is the busiest location of all the locations. The food is great and the service is excellent. The parking lot is always full--sign of a great restaurant.

The food is good. I especially like the sweet rolls they bring to the table. Could make a meal on them alone. The Pig-in-the=Garden Salad is very good if you want a light meal. It is available with different dressings but I prefer to top...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.
