I've never eaten any other than mine, my Dads or central NC bbq so I don't know how to compare.

OK guys, been in Nashville for a couple days, headed home today. Tried Jacks (on Broadway) and thought it was quit good for restaurant Q ( more on that over in road trips). We are headed down I24 towards Atlanta and noticed there is a Jim-N-Nicks there pretty close to the interstate. I'm not a big fan of franchise BBQ but some of y'all think they are pretty good. Is it worth the stop?

As far as chain BBQ restaurants go, I liked it. They have a decent menu and give decent portions. If you order ribs, they are the whole spares and not cut down STL style. I ordered the 3 meat combo and got brisket, hot links and turkey. The links were flavorful and hot, maybe a bit on the dry side. The brisket was good, but cut a little thin. The turkey was real good. Two sauces on the table, sweet original and habanero. You are probably talking about the location in Smyrna. If you stop, lets us know what you think.

By the way....if you stop at Jim n nicks...be prepared....it's super expensive for a barbecue restaurant. It is priced more like a steakhouse chain than a bbq chain.

I went back and read the source article on the T+L website. It was more of a slide show with comments. There were only 35 metropolitan cities in the running and they were from the top 35 travel destinations. Not the most scientific in poles. Nashville does have a growing "foodie" scene. Food trucks pop up all over the place. There are two BBQ festivals in Nashville, and one of them is tied to the CMA Festival. I think the average person would like what they find. For us that are more knowledgable, we might have to look further to find something that pleases us.

Two of my kids had the kids rib plate and I was shocked at how much they sent out. It was 3 or 4 bones off a full spare. My combo plate, my wife's half slab plate and the four kids meals was under $60 before tip. We all had water. Plus we had about four baskets of the sweet, cheesy, biscuit muffins. We took home two boxes of food. Had warmed up ribs for dinner the next night.

I absolutely love Whitt's and Barbecutie. Not because they are the greatest but it was what I was raised on.

Here are the BBQ joint's I've tried in and around Nashville. I travel up there quite often. I have one of my work buddy's from there set-up a dinner outing at a different joint for every trip I make...we call it a "Din-surrection". Anyhoot, I put this list together as we tried out the joints and I only commented if I had an impression. This is a work in process... Also notice that the local chains Whitts and Bar-B-Cutie are not on here for a reason.

Martin's - Nolensville (Nolensville Road) - Local (ok Ribs)

Bacon and Caviar (B&C)- Nashville (Franklin Pike) - Local (The BEST Brisket in Nashville IMO!!!)

Edley's - Nashville (12th Street) - Local (ok)

Judge Bean's - Brentwood (Church St.) Local (do not wear light colored clothing and bring a wash cloth)

Jack's - Nashville Downtown (Broadway) - Local

Judges Vinegaroon - Nashville Downtown (Church Street) - Local, Texas style BBQ

Peg Leg Porker – Nashville Downtown (903 Gleaves St.- The Gulch) – Local competition team – Great ribs and pulled pork.

Fat Boyz BBQ – didn’t make it :(

Slick Pig - Murfreesboro, TN (E. Main St.) – Wings good, ribs so-so.

Jim 'N Nick's - Smyrna (I-24 Sam Ridley exit) - Chain

Famous Daves - Smyrna (I-24 Sam Ridley exit) - Chain

Big Bob Gibson - Decatur Alabama - Only if you have time for a road trip (approx 1 hr and 45 mins south from Nashville)

The BBQ Shop - Memphis, TN - Only if you have time for a road trip (approx 3 hrs and 30 mins West from Nashville) - The BEST glazed ribs on the planet IMO!!!

Although, I cannot say that Nashville is America's Best City for BBQ. You gotta be pretty dang good to surpass Memphis. Just my 3 cents.
