This place needs to be put on blast. Ive kept my mouth shut for almost a year, but it's time the city of Nashville knows what's up with this place.

BAD bad management. The gen manager is either clueless to what's going on in his

I get this every time my family comes in town and I don't feel like cooking. Their barbeque and ribs are great and their rolls are awesome too. I've never eaten inside because they are always so packed, but the take out is great for a picnic.

EXCELLENT ribs, does not need extra sauce. The pulled pork could be improved by a better sauce, but is passable. The muffins/biscuits (depends on who you ask) are delicious when fresh. The service varies as in any restaurant, but overall is good or above. I definitely recommend the ribs!

My favorite was the pulled pork. They had two kinds of sauce on the table. One was supposed to be hotter than the other. They need to visit Texas.

I originally posted a review in 10/09 and at that time Jim N Nick's was everything I said; however that has changed. The last three times we have eaten at this location have been a disappointment. The ribs have been either dry or fatty. The service is spotty and you never know what it will be. The last time the hostess barely acknowledged us, our drinks went unfilled, we received only one basket of muffins with no offer of refill and the server acted as though he was doing us a favor by waiting on us.

It is a shame for they had something great going.

Pros: Can't get enough of those muffins!

Cons: Fatty meats, poor service.

if you think barry bonds biceps were big, you should go in and order a slab of baby back ribs from jim n nicks. eric finney is to ribs like a duck is to water. if you order a slab of baby back ribs you better bring barry bonds biceps to pick them up with. they are so big, you would think they are on steriods. one of the cleanest restaurants, family oriented, all around good people. get you a basket of those cheese biscuits with some honey butter and they will pump up your washboard stomach. in today's economics dinner for 2 about $20, great service, good food and a great atmosphere. what more could you ask for a night out for you and your wife and family. A+ service.

Pros: great parking - right in front of wal-mart

Cons: you'll want more

I'm not the biggest fan of eat out BBQ. I always figured if it wasn't cooked on a grill in my backyard, it wasn't worth eating. I was wrong. Jim N Nicks smokes all of the meat selections to perfection. The ribs are pink on the inside and fall of the bone. The pulled pork and turkey are juicy. The pecan pie is heavenly. But I really go for the cheesy corn muffins.

I have a fair amount of experience with barbecue, from Texas on north, and Jim N Nicks is pretty exceptional. They have smoking down to a fine art, their barbecue sauce is spot-on and the sides are excellent. Their hot links, spare ribs, cheese muffins and fresh-cut fries all get high marks, as does their house beer. Service was first-rate as well. It gets my highest recommendation.

The service and food were impeccable. The friendly staff was very helpful and the recommendations were right on target. The fresh sides and the mouth watering cheese rolls are wonderful compliments to the juicy , fantastic tasting ribs and the perfectly cut and cooked rib eye steak. we will definitely return with each visit to Nashville. This is a restaurant we will gladly recommend to anyone wanting fresh good food with friendly family atmosphere. The best barbecue we have found in Nashville. We are from Texas and consider ourselves connoisseurs of great food especially barbecue. This place stands the test and makes an A in our book.

My family and I visited Jim N Nicks every Friday night for almost 2 years. Weve had the same waitress Stacy who has become like a part of our family. However, our last 6 visits we have been pawned off on other servers and it has been brought to our attention that Stacy was let go against her will. We feeel as if we have not been treated the same since. Its a shame that restaurant owners care more about the money they make then the well being and happiness of the actual people that make the money for them.

I have been to Jim-N-Nick's numerous times, and have yet to find a single complaint. Their entire menu is delicious, but the cheese biscuits are to die for. I usually get the spare ribs, and a side of their Mac The Cheese and creamed spinach. Everything is made with such care and dedication to homestyle cooking, that it is evident in every bite. The servers are very knowlegable, the management is fantastic. Not to mention, they have a great beer selection. They started their signature brew called Reverend Mudbone's Homegrown Hopshine that I highly recommend. It's a great complement to their sweet BBQ.
All in all, Jim-N-Nick's is a great place to take your family, boss, date, grandmother, whomever. Give it a try yourself and I'm sure you wont be disappointed.

I visit Nashville on occasion, and never fail to make a stop at Jim 'n' Nick's. They have perfectly smoked BBQ and, as a self-proclaimed slaw expert, some of the best coleslaw in the state. The food is complimented by the quick and friendly service that I have received each time I have stepped in the door.

the atmosphere is great for a family or group of business professionals and the prices are very reasonable. I ate lunch and filled up for under ten dollars. Try the pulled chicken bbq sandwich with baked beans. Just moved to nashville and it is by far the best taste I've had. Great service and really good sweet tea. highly recommended.

I am a regular at the Jim 'N Nick's in Nashville on my frequent visits to this fine city. I have liked everything I have ever tried there but I keep going back for the ribeye steak. You wouldn't normally think a steak would be good at a BBQ joint, but this is not your typical BBQ joint. The steak is out of this world! I live in the Birmingham area where jim and nicks was founded, so I know and love this restaurant. I have even had the pleasure of meeting Nick himself on several occasions. His passion for quality food and outstanding service are evident after talking with him for just a few moments. He is an artist when it comes to southern style food. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and have on numerous occasions. Keep up the good work Nick and staff.

Cons: Can't think of any.

I have only eaten at one Jim N Nicks and that was in Jasper, AL. The food made me sick and the service was terrible. Maybe the one in Nashville is better, but I think I've had my last deal with Jim N Nicks.

I'm a big BBQ fan and there are a lot of good choices out there in Nashville, but Jim N Nicks has become my favorite. The pulled pork reminds me a lot of one of my old favorite haunts, Herbert's.

What really makes this place stand out though are the sides. Every side I've had there has been awesome. My favorites are probably the onion rings and the mac & cheese. Also, the cheese biscuits they serve are too good. I could probably sit down and eat about two dozen of those things.

The sauces they have are great. If you like some heat, then I'd recommend using the habanero barbecue sauce on your meat.

The BBQ was ok it was not as good as everyone seemed to let on. It had a very bottled smoke flavor and the picture that looked like a dead pig wasen't very delightful to look at while I was eating. On of my friends even got her mouth cut by a bone in her so called Boneless chicken sandwhich.

I grew up in Memphis and spent many years in Texas, so I'm a brutal BBQ critic, and I have been shocked into silent bliss by every item I've tried on the Jim N Nicks menu. The pork links are nothing short of amazing. The brisket, pulled pork, pulled chicken, and turkey are pretty much perfect, especially with a shot of their Habanero sauce. And yes, not only are all the sides as amazing as any homemade you can find, the cheese biscuits (really more like fluffy vanilla muffins with so much shredded cheese in the batter that they fall apart, served with hand-whipped honey butter) are absolutely worth their own visit just to grab a dozen...

...which is what I'm about to go do right now. Excuse me.

Finally, Southern sides to rave about! Mashed potatoes like fluffy clouds (no turbulence), collard greens and cabbage greens that are almost as good as mom's! Mac n Cheese with cheese that is the proper color (and cheese one can actually see...) I typically don't bother ordering potato salad because I rarely ever can take a 2nd taste after the first. Not a potato salad fan. However, I'm not sure what's in the recipe, but I loved it. And, an essential in any really fabulous meal in my opinion, excellent sweet tea. I can't say enough about the sweet tea. It was the proper color (clear amber, not too dark, not too light), it didn't make me wonder if there had been a shortage on sugar that day, and nice (almost crushed) sized ice to go in it. I was quite stunned, and absolutely delighted. Next time, I might have room for a rib or two.

I've tried almost everything on the menu and it's always great (including the BBQ) and reasonably priced. Others have mentioned the cheese biscuits and I will too; they're great. I'm also a fan of their burgers and always get their pimento cheese on the burger which I had never thought of before the John T Burger. The John T isn't on the menu any longer, but you can still get the pimento cheese. My wife loves the Pig in the Garden Salad. I think that the variety of the menu makes Jim n Nicks much more than just a BBQ place. Keep up the good work Jim n Nicks!!

I have eaten at Jim and Nicks more than a dozen times, maybe even two dozen times. I have tried many things. The BBQ (pulled pork) is terrible. I have tried it 3 different times and have been disapointed each time. The ribs are nothing to boast about either. I have found thinga on the menu I truly enjoy. The brisket is worth eating more than once and the side items and cheese biscuits are to die for. I usually just get a veg. plate that consits of 4 side items of your choice and two biscuits. For this to be a "BBQ place" they really need lesson on how to cook BBQ.

I am a BBQ snob and this place was a pleasant surprise. The Pulled Pork topped with coleslaw on toasted sourdough bread was delicious and the bbq beans were wonderful. A great lunch for just $7.50 including a drink and a side item. Next time I will definitely try the biscuits.

Jim and Nick's offers generic BBQ that, while not bad, is certainly not worth going out of your way for in a city like Nashville.
I had the spareribs. They were fair, neither good nor bad. My companion tried the pulled chicken sandwich and was very dissatisfied saying every bite comntained a big chunk of fat or gristle. I will say the sides were pretty good and I enjoyed the cheese biscuits. However, I don't go to a BBQ place for the fries. There are too many good BBQs in Nashville to waste your time at Jim and Nick's.

If you are looking for great barbecue and a nice setting, go to Jim 'N Nicks! They have the best spareribs you could find anywhere! Their spinach dip is fantastic, and the cheese biscuits are worth the trip all on their own. One warning, however... They pile pickles on top of their ribs with no warning of this on the menu. If you don't like pickles, remember to order the ribs without, else the pickle juice ruins the flavor of the ribs.

I've never ordered anything there that wasn't good!
