Description: Ribs. Pork. Chicken. Brisket. Hell, even sausage. All BBQ has the same three basic ingredients: smoke, meat and time. What makes it different is the amount, consideration and attention to each part of that recipe. That, and some really great bbq sauce, too. At Jim ‘N Nick’s, we pride ourselves on using the right ingredients, taking our time and honoring the traditions that brought us barbecue.

Being a southerner, it's hard to fess up to what constitutes the best barbecue I've ever had. Is this the best? The chicken was excellent, and the ribs and pulled pork were very good. The BBA sauce is a bit peppery for my tastes, but some folks do love that. The link is definitely worth the dalliance, especially with the pimento cheese and cornbread (from the starter menu). We also had great service. We wandered in on March 15th, in the midst of Saint Paddy's Day insanity, and found a seat at the bar to have a beer and a snack before our dinner reservation elsewhere. The two women working behind the bar were incredible. They freely offered advice and samples of local brews on draft, suggested items from the menu for a future visit, and gave us an order of cheese biscuits. This got us back in the door the next day to pick up an order to munch on during our drive back to Atlanta. This place goes on to our "Definitely Will Return" list.

I love all The Jim 'n Nick's, but what is especially nice about this one is the location. Points is the "trendy" area, so the fact that the service is friendly and fast means something.

Went out with a group from work. Three of us had been J & N customers previously. The food was great as usual. Service was outstanding! As this location is close to work, I'll definitely be back!

This restaurant is one of my favorites for BBQ. To start with, they have these great little biscuits that have corn in them and they are like a dessert. All of the different barbecue plates are delicious. I have never had bad service and the prices are extremely competitive.
