Jim ‘N Nick’s Br-B-Q
Jim ‘N Nick’s isn’t just a place, it’s a way of doing things. 25 years of tradition and 14 hours of slow smoke come together everyday. The bar-b-q is fueled by hickory smoke and complimented by a delicate rub and hard-to-peg sauce that doesn’t cover up the flavor of the meats, but instead enhances them. jimnnicks.com
