We made a special trip to eat BBQ. One of the best in the QCA. People are friendly and service is good. The decor could use some TLC but the place has been recently painted which is good. I would recommend this to anyone that loves a good hot sauce.

Was excited to get ribs from Jim's, but when we got them home there was hardly any meat on them, dry, and hardly any sauce. Cole Slaw was good. It was $46 for the ribs, mac and cheese and cole slaw.

We recently called in a large carry-out order for a family gathering. Every meal came as ordered and the food was delicious. The ribs were cooked to perfection and the sides were excellent. The portions were hearty, with almost everyone having leftovers.

The BBQ pork lunch sandwich with creamy cole slaw and home made mac and cheese was a perfect cold weather pick me up and appetite destroyer. So delicious! I always stop in when in the Quad Cities. The wait staff was also friendly and attentive to refills.

Reminded me of one of my favorite places in Gainesville, Florida. Really good soul food. Great service. And what else do you need?

Unfortunately the ribs were the toughest and driest I have... More
