Jim ‘N Nick’s BBQ
- Open Now
This is a more upscale BBQ restaurant in the Charlotte area. They have a nice bar with a lot of local craft beers. They bring out cheesy corn muffins that are awesome....but don't eat too many! The BBQ is average but the side selections are pretty good. Overall, the prices are higher than should be expected for average BBQ but you are paying for a little nicer atmosphere and some really good "free" corn muffins!
Most tender and moist you'll find. Sauce was excellent, as well. They wrap meat to go in plastic, bcuz they know it's moist and want to keep it that way. Not too sweet, either. Tried classic pulled pork from them & 2 other places, on the same day, as a taste test. Was best in texture, smell, taste & sauce! Can't imagine going anywhere else!
Jim 'n Nick's is one of our go to's anytime we are within an hour of one. They have wonderful pulled pork with all the fixings. My favorite is the loaded baked potato with pork. Its HUGE and delicious! They also have a "Pig in the Garden" salad that you can get with pork and it's also delicious but the thing I really like is the cheddar muffins they serve when you get seated. These little things are sweet, cheesy and delicious. They sell the mix up front so grab some for the house. Love this place!
We went here for pie and coffee later on a Friday night. Staff was very friendly but had coffee brewing issues. So after we waited about 40 minutes during which time our waitress got burnt, they said the coffee machine wasnt working. They sent us home with the desserts we ordered on the house due to our wait time. For the exemplary customer service alone 4 plus stars. The staff truly tried. We'll be back and we'll have BBQ instead of coffee. Thank you!! It was customer service the way it used to be, so great to see it's practiced here.
My 1st time here. I always test/compare BBQ joints by their pulled-pork plates. This spot is near the top of my list for Charlotte, and I've been to a lot of BBQ establishments. Portions are good, sauces are great, and the service is fast and friendly. I will absolutely be back for more.
