The smoker sits out front! This BBQ is legit! Tender ... Smoky ... Delicious! We added red beans and rice, creamy Mac and cheese, creamy Cole slaw and corn bread...all very good. Worth stopping off the beaten path.

The ribs here are outstanding. The picnic table seating is extremely uncomfortable and keeps me from coming back.

Whenever we are in Sharonville, we eat at Jim Dandy's. The first things you notice are the smokers and lots of wood. The inside feels like a traditional barbecue restaurant. It's a casual atmosphere. The food is good and filling. It's a good value and a pleasant experience.

I love me some BBQ, but seriously? Pulled pork is not made in water!!! Why did you pull it out of some much water and then not even bother draining it. Let's just say it came out the same as it went in.

It had no taste other than the sauce I put on it. Their hot is barely a teaser of heat. This place was not good.

The beef brisket and the greens were great! The coleslaw and cornbread very good. The corn bread is not very sweet. (I prefer it this way, some don't). Jim Dandy's is on the edge of an industrial district so as you drive in if you come from the wrong direction you wouldn't expect to find a great restaurant. Ignore that! Great food and friendly staff await. You stand in line to order-that does not bother me but it does bother some. I will be back, for sure.
