Excellent food, pulled pork sandwich and mac and cheese were awesome! The free biscuits are amazing! Unfortunately our overall experience was tainted by a server who kept disappearing. We had to flag him down for refills and sat for ages with empty dishes before being...More

We've eaten at Jim 'N Nicks in Steele Creek many times, most recently for lunch a couple weeks ago. It's always been busy and the food has been good. My favorite is brisket, with collards and mac and cheese.

Good place for a BBQ fix! The selections were varied to fit everyone's appetite. Although this is a chain, the food tasted as good as the road side mom&pop restaurants. The little biscuits are unlimited and leave little need to order an appetizer. I particularly...More

Good BBQ at a good price. Service is average. Complimentary small biscuits are great but I disagree with some others on the mac-n-cheese and their iced tea both of which aren't good. It overall the meats are excellent.

Each time I've dined in here, the service is poor. Each time I leave, I'm reminded why I stick to the drive through. You can get virtually anything off the menu at the drive through. My spouse likes the "piggie potato" and I like the...More
