Jim n Nick’s BBQ Restaurants

Last week I told you about one of our favorite pizza chains in the north Arkansas area. Now I want to tell you about one of our favorite BBQ restaurants. It’s called Jim n Nick’s Bar B Q and these BBQ restaurants are mainly in the southeast.

We just happened across the original Jim n Nick’s in Jasper, AL a few years ago and ever since then have made a point to go whenever we happen to be in the area (which unfortunately is not often!).

When it comes to BBQ restaurants, I’m the chicken person and my hubby is the rib guy. Whenever we try a new place, we almost always order those respective dishes and at Jim n Nick’s, we have never been disappointed with the results!

Just like a good steak, good BBQ shouldn’t need sauce. The flavor should be in the meat! Unlike many places I’ve had BBQ chicken, where the meat is bland once I get past the sauce-slathered skin, Jim n Nick’s smoked chicken is flavorful all the way through. Of course, if you have to have sauce, they do have it–including a habenero version which I unwittingly tried before realizing it was hot!

The sides are worth mentioning here too. I love their mac and cheese. I go for that as much as for the chicken! I really can’t quite put my finger on it, but though it’s different from any mac and cheese I could compare it to, I can say it’s awesome. They also have a lot of other great choices for sides so it can be hard to choose. Of course, you can forget their popular cheese biscuits!

I didn’t try the ribs this time around, but DH loved his and he is pretty critical when it comes to ribs!

Check out the Jim n Nick’s locations to see if you may be passing by one on your next trip. If you are, and you love good BBQ, I recommend you give them a try!

What is your favorite BBQ restaurant?


  1. Looks really good. I have not been out to a restaurant, other than Chuck E Cheese lol, in about 5-6 years now.

  2. My favorite barbecue restaurant is a place called Johnny’s in central Florida. It’s about 30 or 40 minutes outside of Gainesville. They also have an amazing fresh grouper sandwich.

  3. I’ll have to look and see if there’s a Jim n’ Nick’s anywhere near me. I swear, I miss out on all the good restaurants!

  4. This looks so good! I haven’t actually been to a good BBQ restaurant, but there is a Dinosaur BBQ place near me that is very popular.
