This is the latest of the several Jim N. Nicks BBQ restaurants I've visited. Surprisingly for a chain, they consistently have the best, tastiest, and leanest cuts of meat. Great service and great food. Highly recommended.

This is a great BBQ place...great atmosphere and located in downtown Tuscaloosa. This is a local chain BBQ place. Which is fine, because the venue is a lot nicer than the more 'noted' BBQ places in Tuscaloosa. The pork and BBQ beans are really good....More

I have to admit I've had way better barbecue. The side weren't as good and just in general I wasn't very pleased by my mael. Didn't seem like it had a lot of flavor.

Jim "N Nick's has the best pulled pork in Tuscaloosa. It is truly pulled and NOT chopped. Holiday and Alabama football weekends is a great time to plan ahead and get the best in town.

Wait staff was very friendly and helpful with suggestions for first time visitors. Waiter's name was Adam. Very polite young man. The pulled pork was acceptable for tenderness and flavor was good. Ribs were not as tender as I feel they should be. Baked beans...More

Jim 'N Nick's smoked chicken is tender and delicious! Try it with their white bar-b-que sauce. So yummy. We also like their tossed salads, baked beans and Mac & cheese. But don't forget to try the coconut cream pie! Simply delicious!
