We attended a small "get together" at a dear friend's house. He served a selection of BBQ meats purchased from Jim's. Each was mouth watering delicious.

Don't despair if there is a line when you arrive. It moves quickly and is worth the wait. Pulled pork is so tender and flavorful. Beef brisket is probably my favorite.

I do not agree with those who rate Joe's BBQ of Blue Ridge over Jim's. Jim's has by far superior que and their ribs and Brunswick Stew are the best I've ever tasted. When they first opened people said they'd never make it because of their location. If you thought that try getting in between 11:00-2:00pm.

At noon the tables were full with a line waiting to order...some take out, some eat in. The wait for a table was quick as well as our order. My friend and my large portion of chopped brisket plate was tender and tasty. My husband's pulled pork sandwich was equally as good. Jim's is only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday... More

Best BBQ in North GA! Great ribs and sweet potato fries! Lines are long sometime, but well worth the wait! My kids also love the peanut butter pie!

Great pulled pork The fries were perfect service is great. We will be back again and again. You stand in line to order and someone brings your order to your table. While you wait for your food the mouth watering smells make you hungry
