So, I'll preface this by saying, this location has great service and I can tell they care. They want to get it right. But I have to be honest, I did have a very, very mild reaction when I came home. Probably the most mild reaction I've had, just feeling slightly nauseous. I was able to sleep it off overnight though, felt great this morning. I'm wondering if it was the homemade chips...that's my suspicion. But your mileage may vary!

Had a lovely dinner with my boyfriend at this location. I simply told the hostess that I have food allergies and she sent the Kitchen Manager right to our table. He suggested the Smoked Turkey ( with NO WHITE SAUCE!), I got that with a Baked Potato and Fresh Fruit (which was watermelon). It was all delicious, and the portion sizes were great. *Caution on the Turkey* They do use a rub on the Turkey Breast and I noticed a while later I did get the normal itchy "Celiac Rash" that occurs sometimes on my arms. Visited the location again and got the Smoked Ham with no problems at all 😊

Good Memphis BBQ with eat in dining and a drive through. This is NOT fast food though. Ate brisket, chicken, baked beans and a baked potato without incident. The chicken is exceptionally good! All the sauces are safe, too.

So good! They gave me the allergen menu so I could make the best decision and the waiter seemed to be quite knowledgeable. I had a two meat plate with the pulled pork and sliced turkey breaks, French fries and fresh fruit. I am the only one in my family that is gluten free so the waiter asked if it was ok to bring the biscuits to the table. That is always a win in my book since so many people don't think to ask.

Great food! This place rocks GF! When traveling it is always hard to find GF places that you can truly have a family meal that everyone likes, but this place is just that. They have a gluten free print out when you ask. The sauce is GF, most of the meats, and plenty of the "trimmings"! Would stop here again if we ever find our selves in Memphis again.

The fryer is used only for fries, and so the fries are GF, which was the most amazing discovery when I was pregnant, and craved fries. Their BBQ sauce is GF, and so you can quickly get a plate of BBQ pulled pork, smoked turkey, or BBQ brisket and be completely safe. The baked beans, the coleslaw, and quite a few of their side dishes are perfectly safe by their ingredient list. And when you tell the host(ess) you are GF, you will get a little informal print out telling you what is safe to eat. I've never been glutened there. The food is very yummy.

I have had Jim & Nicks a couple of times in the last 11 months, when it left me not feeling so great. Food has been fabulous, menu is marked for gf. I have stayed away from the bbq sauce, just in case. 6/19 - came away feeling sick again - bbq sauce????

Staff was not knowledgeable at all. Service was terrible. I didn’t feel safe eating there, and we left. The menu was sticky, and the restaurant didn’t seem very clean. We left and went to another place.

Delicious beyond words...all the sauces were gluten free. Service was prompt and super friendly. Only downside was the allergen menu is more old fashioned chart style and less user-friendly. Well worth the effort however.

Had the pulled pork, potato salad and Cole slaw. Fryer is not dedicated so chips and fries are not celiac safe. Overall, waitress and food were fantastic.

They have a comprehensive allergen menu, and the waiter assured us that the cooks take measures to avoid cross contamination. We were able to eat here with no issues.

This was one of the worst experiences I've had in a long time. Their gluten-free "menu" is a long list of allergens. French fries say they are GF but then they tell me that the fryer is contaminated. After switching my order up to be as safe as possible, I still ended up with the worst gluten reaction I've had in a while and the food was very low quality. My brisket was about 75% fat. Very disappointing and will not be returning.

Awesome BBQ!! They only have 2 sauces, but they complement the meat perfectly (tomato based with a hint of spice or habanero). I got the baked beans and fries. Both were delicious!!! Don’t get the fries if you are sensitive to fryer contamination. Also make sure to ask them to hold the cornbread because it is NOT gluten free.

Not really gluten free - no thought has been given to ensuring patrons with gluten sensitivities are kept safe. Although the meat is fairly safe & some of the sauces are apparently fine, there are very few sides that are gf. It was a decent meal but we did have some hiccups & it was very expensive. You have to be very specific with the wait staff to let them know & maybe even speak to the Mgr. My son’s order ended up coming with regular garlic bread even though we specified that his meal was gluten free at least 3 times!

Excellent food and service. Lots of GF options. Items are clearly marked and our waiter double checked on any questions he couldn't answer. Generous portions. Not a dedicated fryer, which is identified on the GF menu.

One of my safe places in the 'boro. Most of the items are gluten free and made from scratch. Friendly about questions and helpful in selections. Plus, I have never had a bad meal here. No gf buns but you wont miss them. Plenty safe things to eat. They do not have a gluten free menu but I have found they are more than willing to help me pick out what is safe.

Told them I couldn't have gluten and they asked whether I had celiac (I do). They were able to advise me regarding their selections, including BBQ sauces. Much of their menu was GF, and I got a delicious grilled catfish and watermelon. Very helpful, and their menu online also points out their many GF offerings. Definitely recommend.

You can almost get anything gluten free here but check out the on-line menu in advance. The server doesn't always know but the kitchen does because I have eaten many times and never been glutened. My favorite is the bbq turkey plate with french fries and sweet potato casserole (which on the on-line menu says it has gluten but at this restaurant it does not - it is a Sun. special side)

Just make sure you confirm EVERY order and stand your ground with food servers. We did fine when dining in, but the first and last time we ever tried ordering out, EVERY item was packaged with a piece of bread, rendering it completely inedible and, in fact, dangerous for my wife with her Celiac. This was despite my going on and on about how careful they needed to be with our order. They got careless and lost us as a customer. My wife simply doesn't trust them and refuses to go ever again. Their carelessness betrayed her trust and the won't ever get it back.

Staff very knowledgeable about Celiac. I asked for a gluten free menu and they asked if I had Celiac. No GF menu, but they knew what was acceptable. Double checked ingredient book to make sure.

Pros: extremely friendly staff. Very clear allergen list. Cons: despite ordering very carefully based on the allergen list. And despite our server noting my wife's celiac on the order. And despite them reassuring us they have separate prep space etc, she had a terrible reaction 30 min after we left the restaurant. It's a shame because the food and service is great, but not worth the risk for us again.

Maybe this place is OK for people that are GF WITHOUT Celiacs, but NOT OK for Celiacs. Menu and wait staff advised French Fries were Gf and cooked in separate fryer. Sadly, there were pieces of fried chicken in my fries which I didn't notice until I was more than halfway through. NOT OK FOR CELIACS!!!!!!

Friday was my 3rd time going to Jim N Nicks. imagine my surprise when the gf menu was 1/3 the size it used to be, they no longer have a dedicated fryer either. on top of that, my son and I are sick from eating here, I can only pay he doesn't get a seizure and heals before school starts next week. Very disappointed to lose one of the few places my family thought we could trust.

They put cornbread in the to go box directly on top of my food. Couldn't eat it, had to put directly in trash. They did take care of me the next time I came in, shows they care.

Our favorite BBQ place! A little on the pricy side, but it is soooo good. The ONLY place even remotely close to me that has gluten free BBQ (and I live an hour away). We don't get to eat here much, but when we're in Concord, we usually come here. Staff is always friendly and the food is great. Went here Friday before a concert. Decided on the half chicken with potato salad and bbq beans. Let me just say that the chicken is absolutely amazing. The best place I had ever had chicken was Texas Roadhouse. But I'd say they definitely have some competition. The chicken was so moist that it was falling off the bone. It's melt in your mouth good. My husband really loves their burgers. He says they're the best he's ever had. Do beware that everything listed as GF on their menu actually isn't. If you have Celiac, stay away from the fries and chips. They are listed as GF, but they're cooked in a shared fryer. The potato salad is really good, and their bbq beans have chunks of pulled pork in them. Yum! Love coming here!
