Re: “Mary's Old Fashioned Pit Barbecue

i was dying to try this spot, as i was just craving some real deal barbeque. so, i drove on down to this spot and made my order. i'll try and be brief.
i could write about 5 paragraphs, but let me just encapsulate, and save you some time: first off, it was way expensive for 'neighborhood barbecue'.
a half slab of ribs, a fried catfish sandwhich, and 3 very CHINCY dixie cup size sides (beans, potato salad, and corn bread), was $26.73...OUCH!!
before leaving, i looked in to the bag and went over my order with the lady, to make sure everything was in the bag, but somehow, when i got home, i realized she forgot to put the barbecue sauce in with the ribs. no sauce? OUCH!!
i actually had to go out again to Kroger and get some. no excuse for this oversight. OUCH!!
my girlfriend said that good ribs should be 'fall-off-the-bone tender', but these were far from it. i had the fried catfishfish sandwhich, which was fair, a portion more than i could eat...but without the pickles and hotsauce, it was like eating two pieces of cornmeal-dipped cardboard on wonder bread.
bottom line: WAY TOO MUCH MONEY FOR SUCH AN EXPERIENCE. for this price, you could share appetizers at J. Alexander's. Or stuff your faces at Las Palmas, and have money left over toward a movie...
forget it...

Re: “Jim 'N' Nick's Bar-B-Q

very average BBQ. The nachos are good, albeit a rip from the Memphis joints. Bynum's BBQ in Memphis has the best BBQ potatoes. but the bottom line is that the meat is average and I cannot get past my intro to the original Jim n Nicks in BHM years ago...they served me a sliced pork sandwich - the horror!

Re: “Jim 'N' Nick's Bar-B-Q

The bbq and ribs are fantastic here, and everything (literally everything) is homemade. My favorite thing I've gotten has to be the bbq nachos on the appetizer menu, but the ribs are a close runner-up. The cheese biscuits are absolutely wonderful, and they're always fresh out of the oven. The sweet tea and lemonade are both very good, and all the drinks are served with crushed ice (which is awesome). The homemade desserts are great, especially the pecan pie - probably the best pecan pie I've ever had (and I've had some good pecan pie). They also have giant baked potatos with your choice of bbq meats, cheese, sour cream, butter, and bacon on top which are more than enough for a meal by themselves. The onion ring appetizer is extremely good - they're crunchy and hot, with a perfect proportion of onion and batter. Jim 'N' Nick's is one of my favorite places to eat.

Re: “Neely's Bar-B-Que

Expensive for bbq and not that good. This place is now a tourist attraction due to the Neely's being on Food Network.. Do not waste your time if you are local and want good bbq. Go to Martin's in Nolensville. It is worth the drive.

Re: “Bar-B-Cutie

Classic smokey Memphis-style bbq in the original location of the iconic Nashville eatery. They didn't get this big with lousy service and so-so bbq. You know it's going to be good! But what sets it apart, other than the sexy sign? For me, it's the variety. I had pork bbq on cornbread - two big corncakes (like pancakes) and that was a new one on me. Yum! They also have great value meals - the daily special for 5 bucks, or a meat and potatoes dinner for 3 bucks. Plus tons of sides to choose from. And they serve breakfast made-to-order! Service is friendly and speedy, tables are clean and stocked with four sauce choices. If you live in Nashville, I know it's on your to-do list. Check it off soon!

Re: “South Street Original Crab Shack, Smokehouse And Treehouse Oyster Bar

I returned to South Street after several years to only to be severely disappointed by the food we ordered.. My parents were visiting from out of town so I wanted to treat them to a "Nashville favorite" and it was anything but that.. Three of us ordered the pumped chicken and it was so dry that after several bites we were all finished. I don't remember the pumped chicken being so unappetizing in the past..My father ordered a steak..well-done. When it came, it very rare, almost raw, and he said that it was the worst steak he had ever had. It was so tough that it was hard to cut. The manager was kind enough to take it off the bill since it took a while to re-cook the meat. Overall, the service was very good and they did try very hard to please...I only hope that this night was an exception. We would hate to end our visits to South Street.

Re: “South Street Original Crab Shack, Smokehouse And Treehouse Oyster Bar

Today was our first visit to South Street. We were craving one of our favorite meals; raw oysters and beer. Acme in New Orleans and Goatfeathers in South Walton were out of the question. The service at South Street was well above average. David, our waiter, had good suggestions, and seemed to show up at just the right time. The oysters were delecious. We had three dozen, and would rate them close to any we've had anywhere. Our rating is only 4 because this was our first visit to South Street; if our next visit is as enjoyable, it'll be a solid 5.

Re: “Dee's Q [Closed]

I love everything on the menu. The meat is tender & smoked just right. The fish snadwich is a meal for two. Be very hungary, you get a lot.
