Jim 'N Nick's celebrates the artistry of slow cooked Bar-B-Q with recipes handed down for generations.
It all began in 1985 in a reclaimed old pizza restaurant on Clairmont Avenue in Birmingham, AL. The formula was simple. Celebrate the heritage of the bar-b-q masters they revered, cut no corners on the menu, and serve the whole community like family.
That philosophy allowed them to create something special. An authentic bar-b-q restaurant with chefs and pitmasters. Legacy recipes, but uniquely creative cooking. Sit down dining on one hand, and a drive through on the other. 12 hours slow-smoked pork and beef, but served real fast. A celebration of Alabama, but a reverence for the bar-b-q tradition across the South.
It’s the kind of place that only happens when you don’t follow the crowd, but instead follow your heart, trust your gut, and simply do things the hard way.
Today, Jim ‘N Nick’s has become an icon of the bar-b-q community. One bite and you’ll understand why, there’s only one Jim ‘N Nick’s.
