By far the best buffalo chicken tenders I've ever had. They are huge, and their buffalo sauce covered tenders dipped in ranch will make you slap your mother and grandmother.

Jim and Nicks is a good restaurant. The service is good. They offer drinks in the small bar area. The white wine was brought to me with foam in the glass. I figured it must have come out of a box. Other than that, it is a good go to place.

Jim and Nicks is a very steady, reliable and great "go-to" restaurant. The food is constantly good and the service will not disappoint you.

Jim N Nicks is solid BBQ place. I've had the ribs, pulled pork, and brisket all very good. Maybe not as good as some of the top tier local places (5 star BBQ )but very good for a small chain. Their cheese biscuits are the best - hard to stop eating them they are so so good👍 Service is usually... More

Several times at Jim 'n Nicks my BBQ has either been dry or full of fat. So I changed plans and was glad I did. The Burger was fist class, cooked to perfection, served hot with all the regular stuff. Now I know what to get when others want BBQ.

Fantastic food, great service, leftovers were just as good for lunch the next day. They serve the best onion rings in Birmingham and my husband loves their brisket. I chose salad with pulled chicken and loved it as always!! This is our go to place.

Coming from a BBQ town (Kansas City) it is a little hard for me to critique other places BBQ. But that hasn't stopped me from trying any in the places I do visit. As I have often stated in my reviews, I am a craft beer lover and appreciate places that offer local brews for me to try. I did... More

Jim and nicks used to be our all-time favorite barbecue in Birmingham. We stopped going to the one up by Galleria, off of Highway 31, because the service and the food was consistently poor. We were then going to the restaurant off Highway 280. Our last three visits there have been extremely disappointing. It is sad to say, but I... More

The restaurant staff is very friendly and attentive to your needs. I really enjoyed the family like atmosphere. If you enjoy Bar-B Q This the place to fresh food and homemade lemonade, don't miss out on this one.
