Yuck, bad, and Im not talking about the food! – This place needs to be put on blast. Ive kept my mouth shut for almost a year, but it's time the city of Nashville knows what's up with this place.
BAD bad management. The gen manager is either clueless to what's going on in his restaurant, or in on it which is even sicker.
Basically, the assistant manager that works there, a brown haired girl named Marty, was sleeping with one of the servers, who was much younger than her, and playing favorites with him. She would meet him and certain other employees at the bar after work and get drunk as you know what with members of staff, and it was just reallllllllllly gross. I mean, she tried to keep it a secret but then would meet up with everyone, so everyone knew about it but no one was "allowed" to say anything to the other two managers.
She was a nasty person too. Horrible personality, and treated her staff like crap, if they were girls that were more attractive then her (which was basically almost all of them haha). She accused me of giving her boyfriend the eye one time, and then treated me badly until I put my two weeks notice in. News flash Marty, no one wants your boyfriend! He's GROSS.
I just wasn't aware that managers were allowed to sleep with the people they are paying, Im pretty sure that's ILLEGAL, not to mention so gross. Just bad work enviroment all around, very sleazy. You all can call me bitter, or a liar, but a little investigating will prove Im not lying. EVERYONE knew about it.
But hey! The food's not bad.....
Awesome Barbeque – I get this every time my family comes in town and I don't feel like cooking. Their barbeque and ribs are great and their rolls are awesome too. I've never eaten inside because they are always so packed, but the take out is great for a picnic.
Sadly, I need to change my review. – I originally posted a review in 10/09 and at that time Jim N Nick's was everything I said; however that has changed. The last three times we have eaten at this location have been a disappointment. The ribs have been either dry or fatty. The service is spotty and you never know what it will be. The last time the hostess barely acknowledged us, our drinks went unfilled, we received only one basket of muffins with no offer of refill and the server acted as though he was doing us a favor by waiting on us.
It is a shame for they had something great going.
baby back ribs bigger than barry bonds biceps – if you think barry bonds biceps were big, you should go in and order a slab of baby back ribs from jim n nicks. eric finney is to ribs like a duck is to water. if you order a slab of baby back ribs you better bring barry bonds biceps to pick them up with. they are so big, you would think they are on steriods. one of the cleanest restaurants, family oriented, all around good people. get you a basket of those cheese biscuits with some honey butter and they will pump up your washboard stomach. in today's economics dinner for 2 about $20, great service, good food and a great atmosphere. what more could you ask for a night out for you and your wife and family. A+ service.
Best BBQ. – I'm not the biggest fan of eat out BBQ. I always figured if it wasn't cooked on a grill in my backyard, it wasn't worth eating. I was wrong. Jim N Nicks smokes all of the meat selections to perfection. The ribs are pink on the inside and fall of the bone. The pulled pork and turkey are juicy. The pecan pie is heavenly. But I really go for the cheesy corn muffins.
OUTSTANDING barbecue! – I have a fair amount of experience with barbecue, from Texas on north, and Jim N Nicks is pretty exceptional. They have smoking down to a fine art, their barbecue sauce is spot-on and the sides are excellent. Their hot links, spare ribs, cheese muffins and fresh-cut fries all get high marks, as does their house beer. Service was first-rate as well. It gets my highest recommendation.
BEST BARBECUE IN NASHVILLE – The service and food were impeccable. The friendly staff was very helpful and the recommendations were right on target. The fresh sides and the mouth watering cheese rolls are wonderful compliments to the juicy , fantastic tasting ribs and the perfectly cut and cooked rib eye steak. we will definitely return with each visit to Nashville. This is a restaurant we will gladly recommend to anyone wanting fresh good food with friendly family atmosphere. The best barbecue we have found in Nashville. We are from Texas and consider ourselves connoisseurs of great food especially barbecue. This place stands the test and makes an A in our book.
Poor management – My family and I visited Jim N Nicks every Friday night for almost 2 years. Weve had the same waitress Stacy who has become like a part of our family. However, our last 6 visits we have been pawned off on other servers and it has been brought to our attention that Stacy was let go against her will. We feeel as if we have not been treated the same since. Its a shame that restaurant owners care more about the money they make then the well being and happiness of the actual people that make the money for them.
Good Food, Nice People – I visit Nashville on occasion, and never fail to make a stop at Jim 'n' Nick's. They have perfectly smoked BBQ and, as a self-proclaimed slaw expert, some of the best coleslaw in the state. The food is complimented by the quick and friendly service that I have received each time I have stepped in the door.
Best BBQ around – I have been to Jim-N-Nick's numerous times, and have yet to find a single complaint. Their entire menu is delicious, but the cheese biscuits are to die for. I usually get the spare ribs, and a side of their Mac The Cheese and creamed spinach. Everything is made with such care and dedication to homestyle cooking, that it is evident in every bite. The servers are very knowlegable, the management is fantastic. Not to mention, they have a great beer selection. They started their signature brew called Reverend Mudbone's Homegrown Hopshine that I highly recommend. It's a great complement to their sweet BBQ.
All in all, Jim-N-Nick's is a great place to take your family, boss, date, grandmother, whomever. Give it a try yourself and I'm sure you wont be disappointed.
