Today, with 39 restaurants in seven states, Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q has become a Southern institution and is excited to expand their presence in Tennessee. With community as the foundation for the brand and at the heart of everything they do, the Jim ‘N Nick’s team is committed to building deep and lasting relationships with the Chattanooga community and believes that the people served are just as important as the food.

“This opening marks our sixth restaurant in Tennessee,” said Mr. Lyman. “And we can’t wait to start building a community of strong ties and relationships in Chattanooga.”
