    Good meat, not sauce

    Bro. Jimmys is carolina BBQ. True southerners know that Carolina BBQ is not that good. They tend to be very heavy with the vinegar. There sauce reflects this. I go there but I bring my own sauce. Just about any sauce off the shelf is better than the mess they make.

    Great Food, varying service, pricy beer.

    I've been going to several locations of this restaurant for years. Primarily I always meet people there on Monday nights for the incredible All You and Eat/Drink Wings, RibTips, and Tap Beer special for something like $16.95. They still have that special...and that still represents about 99% of my patronage of Brother Jimmy's. The food is exceptional...I've never visited the place and gotten bad food. This is main thing to remember about the place...the good food. The service however is another story.....I once visited the Amsterdam Ave. location and they tried to bar one of my friends from entering to eat dinner around 7pm because he was under 21...it took about 20 minutes to get the manager to explain that he intended to drink soda with his meal and we were simply there to have dinner. The manager in question still told us he didn't understand why "someone under 21 would want to hang out in a bar and not drink" although this place is also a RESTAURANT. Another time several friends threw me a going away party at the Midtown location when I moved out of the country for a year. They negotiated an ALL YOU CAN DRINK special for everyone attending the party for a set price per person...which they specified included Tap beer and fishbowls. Then the management started complaining when we ordered "too many" fish bowls and later tried to ask us to leave when several patrons un-associated with our party started trouble with a bartender or something...downstairs...not anywhere near us. Basically we spent a ton of money at the place and they treated us like poorly. Don't get me wrong...I've had several really good experiences with the service, but I have to say I've had more unpleasant experiences. The drink prices are another downside to this place. I stopped in last week to get a few pitchers with friends...its 17 dollars for 1 pitcher of Bud Light. Be aware of this when you start ordering beer...because it goes down quick as you eat the awesome food. Overall...I'd say my recommendation of this place is ONLY visit the place on nights when they have a special going...unless you're prepared to spend tons of money on domestic beer but once again...the food is always awesome

    Good Times

    Food was great, I highly recommend the dry rub ribs! If you are stuck in the UES and are craving southern food, then Brother Jimmy's will satisfy your need. You have to be up for the crowd though, don't go if you are looking for peace and quiet, but want a high energy experience.

    Great Southern BBQ!

    I just ate @ Brother Jimmy's on Saturday night and had a great time! There was a waitlist to be seated, but the hostesses were nice and sat us within a reasoable time frame, the waitress was sweet and fun and the food was great too ( and I'm not a huge fan of BBQ)! Overall it was such a fun night out, we even got a free swamp water from our waitress!! Can't wait to go back with a bigger group of friends!!!

    delivery so-so

    delivery is ok. Onion straws are great, as well as pulled pork. But one of the sides didn't make it. The southern style ribs were tough. Very tough. Northern were better. Took about 50 minutes for delivery. Overall good, but not great.

    Good Food, Deal with the Atmosphere

    BJ's gets a bad rap from a lot of people because of the very young crowd and meat-market atmosphere that prevails at night. But I've learned to get over it, and aside from the loud music, I've never really been bothered there. The ribs are really good, as is the country fried steak, and the collards are wonderful. Skip the mac n cheese - it's a little sour and pretty disappointing.

    Fun times & Good food!!

    I've been there a few times to grab a drink or two or five! But this was the first time I actually sat down and ate and I was not disappointed. The place was packed but the hostesses seated us promptly, the waitress was sweet and gave great service, and I had some of the best Southern comfort food of my life! (I'm a tough critic of BBQ b/c I'm from Kansas City but this was GOOD)
