Jim ‘n Nick’s Bar-B-Q

2831 Greystone Commercial Blvd., Birmingham, AL 35242

While visiting Birmingham for the first time, we visited this restaurant we’d spotted on the way to our hotel. It was an excellent choice.

Our waitress, Stephanie, was knowledgeable and friendly. We went the first time on a Saturday night and it wasn’t too crowded. I had smoked ham and tried creamed collards for the first time. I liked them, and the helping was just right because I could not have eaten a large portion of them. The ham was tender and moist and I took some back to the hotel for breakfast the next morning.

The next afternoon we went back for lunch. it was very crowded but worth the wait. Stephanie stopped by our table and spoke to us. The night before she had recommended the “Loaded Mac” so that’s what I ordered this time. It was delish – mac-n-cheese topped with roasted pork.

One thing that drew us back was the freshness. Stephanie had explained how their food was made fresh every day and there were no large coolers to hold any pre-made items.

Pluses: They carry local craft beers; they sell their BBQ sauce and cheese cornbread mix ; they also sell T-Shirts.

Interesting: One of the appetizers is deviled eggs.

Next time: I’d like to try the BUTTERBEAN & SMOKED MUSHROOM HUMMUS which is a southern take on traditional hummus, served with cornbread and celery.
