This BBQ place is really very good! Our server Lindsey was so awesome! She was very friendly and had great recommendations. The 2 meat combo is what I ordered with 2 sides. While waiting for that, a basket of cheese biscuit muffins were brought. The brisket and ribs were so yummy and you get a lot of food for your... More

I am beyond disappointed. After driving 3 hours we realllly wanted bbq and got to the resturant 45 min before closing. We were sat graciously, but then we waited and waited and waited. Another table was set then like magic the waitress appears and serves you guess it. Them NOT us. We were directly next to them. Sooo we will... More

The barbecue pulled pork sandwich would melt in your mouth! Delicious! Service was very slow. Was not updated on status of order and was slow even getting drink orders in. In all fairness I was with a bus group of approx. 40 people, but they knew we were coming and our time of arrival.

We stopped by luck when we were passing through Memphis. Jim 'N Nick's is a sit down restaurant but has the great taste of a whole-in-the-wall BBQ place. Our waitress, Diane, was the best and gave us great advice and service. The brisket sandwich was flavorful, tender and moist and the pulled pork sandwich was delicious. We have had bbq... More

Our group decided to go to Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q recently. You may already know how good their BBQ and ribs are, but did you know they have even more good choices? Several of us chose to go with the Chopped Southern Salad (with the Grilled Chicken). Sure there was lettuce, but this salad also had grilled vegetables, pecans, bacon,... More

We have eaten here a few times and I can't figure out why the servers are so snarly. The last time was a few nights ago and our server was just plain rude and SLOW. We made it easy - we told her no bread - one less thing for her to do. But we just never could get her... More

The smoked chicken is our favorite meat here, but all their smoked meat is wonderful. Memphis has many b-b-q restaurants but the tastiest is Jim 'n Nick's. They make everything from scratch. Try the Mac 'n cheese, as well as the banana pudding. They serve yummy little cheese biscuits with every order!

Passing through Memphis and stopped for the night and dinner. This place was close to the hotel so we gave it a try. So glad we did. Was super hungry so our eyes was bigger than our stomaches. We started with the rib bites -- good option if you want a taste but not a whole meal. Hubby got three... More
