Being from Texas I was warned the Mississippi barbecue is not the same. True but I am not judging this by Texas standards.

We were greeted by very friendly staff who explained the offerings on the menu and recommended the nachos which we ordered. We also shared pulled pork and ribs.

Nachos were homemade multi colored tortilla chips with generous amounts of pulled pork, white cheese and BBQ sauce. The pork was tasty and moist. Cheese good. The chips were fine but again, we ate homemade tortilla chips in south Texas Mexican restaurants and there is no comparison.

Ribs were light on the meat and the flavor was a bit tangy - too much vinegar I think.

Pulled pork l was best part of the meal but not enough to warrant a special trip back.

Stopped in on way back to Jackson TN. Had barbecue sandwich with baked beans. Beans were dry and over cooked but sandwich was good. Very friendly place.

This is the best BBQ, in my opinion, in Tupelo. I've tried two other locations and found them vastly under par in comparison to Bar-B-Q By Jim. Excellent service, filling portions, and clean atmosphere.

We know and like Bar BQ. Have a brother who owns a Bar BQ restaurant in Texas. Well Bar BQ By Jim has good food. We went in after a huge lunch rush and we still got good service with a smile. We had been traveling from Oklahoma to Georgia and ate at four or more Bar BQ restaurants. This was by far our favorite of all. Ribs were tender and fall off the bone. Sauce just right sweet to tang. The sides were home made southern style cooking. They do it right there.
