Alabama takes its barbecue pretty seriously, so it may come as a surprise that the winner of the 'Bama BBQ Bracket (yes, they have one of those) is a chain. Jim 'N Nick's isn't just any old chain, though. From their homemade BBQ chips to their addictive cheddar cornbread muffins, to their hickory-smoked pulled pork, everything at Jim ‘N Nick’s is made with pride in their product.

What to Order: Pig on a Bun (otherwise known as a pulled pork sandwich) and as many baskets of cheddar cornbread muffins as you can stomach. Or try your pulled pork in a tortilla on Taco Tuesdays.
