Let me just cut to the chase. Jim 'N Nick's was everything, and I do mean everything, I want in a restaurant. Great atmosphere, great service and most importantly outstanding food. And what is most astounding is that this is a chain restaurant. The meal we ate last night more than made up for the nightmare of a meal we had the previous evening.
The meal came with with baskets of these cheese biscuits/rolls. Eating one of these was impossible so we inhaled a couple baskets of them. Eating one of these biscuits made the meal better than the previous nights whole meal.
Barry ordered a BLT that had some kind of cheese, pimento spread working. The bacon used on Jim 'N Nick's is amazing. Not oversmoked, thick cut and cooked to perfection.
Celeste ordered the biggest, juiciest Southern Fried Chicken Tenders that ever graced a plate. There was so much food on her plate that she could only eat one of the chicken tenders.
I ordered some of the best catfish I've ever eaten. Two huge filets that with the mound of fries filled a huge plate.
The collard greens were cooked to perfection.
We ordered some rib bones because we had to try some actual BBQ. They were smoked and lightly glazed with sauce. Just about as good as you can do in a restaurant.
And finished up with some of the most amazing pie I've ever had. It would have made my grandmother happy. We tried the coconut cream, lemon icebox and chocolate cream pies. All flavors were first rate.
I cannot even big to express my satisfaction. This was one fine meal and a restaurant I would recommend. Everything in the restaurant is made from scratch right on the premises. From the salad dressings to the desserts. The food is fresh, vibrant and tastes so good. You’ve got to eat there is you get a chance.
On a final note. We ate in the Memphis restaurant and Jerald was our server. He was knowledgable about everything on the menu and was able to explain everything to us. His personality was great and he obviously has a great deal of pride for his place of employment.
PS: I don’t know what Jerald is making at Jim ‘N Nick’s but he should get a raise.
