Really good BBQ in an informal setting. Order at the counter and all paper products delivered to the table for your order. It is a busy place and service is basic. The food is worth it. I was sorry there was only lemon pie on our visit. I heard talk of the pies...

Went here on a recent trip to Charlotte for the first time. We wanted authentic NC BBQ and tried going to Macs Speedshop but they were not very family friendly. Kim 'N Nicks was the complete opposite, very welcoming family atmosphere. Food came out quick and it was delicious. The only issue was that we felt rushed when our waitress... More

The biscuits are to die for. Fluffy, buttery, galicy, salty, sweet. Come with dinner but could have just eaten them all night. Got there around 7:30pm with a group of 6. Took about 20 minutes to get seated so it wasn't too bad. Took our drink orders and brought them back with the biscuits. Biscuits=yum. Try the peach iced tea.... More

Checked out TA for a place to eat lunch and found Jim N Nicks. Probably would not have ever seen this place otherwise. Wish I would have found it and stopped in sooner. Had a great lunch and plant to return for dinner. The homemade chip appetizer started us off right. Then I got a salad with brisket on it.... More

For all you Ohio people looking for a good place for BBQ, stop here! It is just 15min out of your way for a great meal. The biscuits are killer!! Have not had a bad meal yet and they do all their smoking on-site. Prices are not bad either. Typically we get the pulled pork sandwiches, but the brisket is... More

Very happy to see these guys open. We are fans of 521 BBQ, which has the best ribs, but now they have a bit of upscale competition with Jim 'N Nicks just up the road. We went for lunch and waited about 30 minutes for a table. It was worth it. The place is clean and well kept. Menu is... More

Stopped here for lunch.Staff was very friendly and helpful. Everyone in our party raved about their food. The burgers were good and the smoked brisket was awesone. Definitely hope to return when back in Charlotte

We arrived around 7. Parking lot was full. Servers buzzing around. Our server was very friendly. Cheese Biscuits are yummy. I ordered the beef brisket sandwich with bbq chips and slaw. All very good but the sauce on the brisket was a little spicy. Not bad. But I really like a white sauce with brisket. Husband had a 3 meat... More
