Best BBQ in town, but don't forget to add their awesome potato salad or Cole slaw. Country fried is perfect.

Watched it change from Rusty's Bar to Smokin Jim's BBQ but never stopped to eat until last weekend. It's my new favorite place to eat in Bedford. Clean place with a family atmosphere, friendly staff, good looking waitresses but most of all great food. I didn't get a chance to sample everything but given enough time I will.

The smoked meat at "Smokin Jim's BBQ" is wonderful. We stopped for a late evening meal and decided to stop after reading good reviews. I ordered a pulled pork sandwich with pork and beans and potato salad. Meal was wonderful. It is hard to beat the flavor of wood smoked slow cooked meat. I would defiantly visit this place again.

Food is tasty. Not great. Not a waste of a trip or a meal either. Have not been in a hurry to get back, but would go back if others wanted to go. So, if that helps.

We ate at Smokin Jim's during the week after Christmas. My husband raved about the half slab of ribs, which fell off the bone, and the cole slaw. After way too much to eat over Christmas, I made the mistake of ordering a tossed salad. The cucumbers were so soggy, they bent when I picked them up. The salad was... More

Well that was pretty good BBQ! Can't miss this place on IN 37 in Bedford, with a big black locomotive sitting out front. Tried the pulled pork sandwich, and was not disappointed. Reasonable prices and good service.

The food is great and the prices are reasonable. The wait staff was very helpful with information and suggestions. Be aware, no alcohol is served here, but don't let that cause you to miss out on the great food!

Thank Timothy V
