No matter what Jim 'N Nicks restaurant you go to whether Montgomery, Prattville or one of its 30 locations across the country... You'll find things that are consistent throughout.
"When you have a place that has a pit to plate mentality like that, wants to give the very best to its guest in everything that they do, then you're going to be top of everything," said General Manager of the Prattville location.

Whether it's the smoked pork, brisket, ribs or burgers, customers say it's all the best you'll find anywhere.
"It's everything here. The sides are just as good as the bbq and you can't go wrong with the steaks," says regular customer Jennifer Jacobs.
They say it satisfies the young customers, as well as the older ones, regular customers and the new ones that wander in.
Jerry Simons is from Michigan and visited the Prattville location for the first time.
"I highly recommend it. We just pulled into the motel down here, saw the sign and asked how is this place. They said its good food, so here we are," said Simons.
And the fact that it made the number one barbecue chain in the country is nothing new to these Jim 'n Nicks barbecue fans.
"It doesn't surprise me at all. Everytime we come here the food is amazing," said Jacobs.
Jim 'N Nicks is looking to expand its locations throughout the country.
Right now, there are 30 locations in the southeast and Colorado.
