The Mac and cheese is amazing. Chicken tenders and BBQ chicken are amazing. Collard greens! And the cheese biscuits are the best!

Good place to go too if you're hungry. Great smoked meats. Great drive thru. The ribs are amazing ... you buy by the pound. I'm not so crazy about the bar-b-que sauces but they do have good food. Not crazy about the service since they...More

Great Restaurant. Pig in the Garden salad was awesome and a great price. Half rack of ribs were a little over done, but good. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

This is the second time I've eaten at Jim 'N Nicks Bar-B-Que and can't wait to go back on my next trip to Nashville. The service was slow and the restaurant was loaded with lots of families. The wait was long, but well worth it....More

We stopped by the restaurant as a family to get some good Carolina BBQ. I ended up getting some ribs and they were fantastic! They even put the Tennessee Vols game on for us. I would have gave it 5 stars but they need more...More

Ribs. Pork. Chicken. Brisket. Hell, even sausage. All BBQ has the same three basic ingredients: smoke, meat and time. What makes it different is the amount, consideration and attention to each part of that recipe. That, and some really great bbq sauce, too. At Jim ‘N Nick’s, we pride ourselves on using the right ingredients, taking our time and honoring the traditions that brought us barbecue.
