Jim's Smokin' Que is off of the beaten path...but it is well-worth a trip. Great BBQ and excellent sides, the banana pudding is the best ever. You order at the counter and then they bring it to you table. Friendly quick service!

A must eat at! They are only open Thursday, Friday, Saturday. I've never seen them "slow," always a line but oh so worth it! The food is absolutely delicious! You must try the banana pudding. Smoked turkey is my favorite!

Be prepared to see their "out of...." sign when you order. I have been there about 7 times and have not had the full menu available because they did not prepare. The last visit they were down to few meats: so, I ordered a combo...More

Although some customers would be put off by having to order and the counter, and a self serve drinks area, it is the best BBQ ever. So good. Go early because they run out of food. Best place ever.
