Southern Savor: Jim ‘N Nicks

It’s been a pretty slow week around here. Nice weather turned to bad weather turned to cold weather, but that’s just how it is in Alabama.

Earlier in the week, me and Brett enjoyed eating at Jim ‘N Nick’s, a BBQ restaurant with locations throughout Alabama. There are also locations in Colorado, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.

Tuscaloosa’s opened a few months ago and we’ve frequented it many times since. Our first trip to the Tuscaloosa location was Brett’s first time ever. Already a BBQ enthusiast, informing him of the endless cheese muffins pushed him over the edge.


You can even buy the muffin mix for $5.99. Something either of us have yet to do, but one day will.

I’ve never strayed from the Pig in the Potato Patch, a potato filled with goodness. (Goodness=pulled pork, bacon, cheese, butter, scallions.) It also has sour cream, but I nix that one. If you don’t like pulled pork, you can substitute it for brisket, chicken or turkey. Plenty of other BBQ options are available like pulled pork and ribs.

I would post a picture, but I dove into it before I even thought about taking a picture. Sorry.

There are other Southern fixings on the menu including catfish and collards, as well as general menu items like hamburgers, chicken and sandwiches.

While they have appetizers on the menu, we’ve never had them thanks to the muffins and the understanding that there will be dessert.

Dessert at Jim ‘N Nicks isn’t just any dessert, it’s one dessert: pie. But not just any pie, Mable’s Homemade Pies. Each day features different types of pies. There is chocolate, lemon and coconut, but I know I’m missing one or two more.


It’s a great place to visit for good BBQ with a Southern flair. If you’ve never been, a suggest you stop in if you happen to be near one of their locations.

Hope everyone eats good this weekend, especially if you attend a Super Bowl party.

Happy weekend!
