A new barbecue joint is under construction in The Shoppes at Hamilton Place.

Jim N’ Nick’s Bar-B-Q’s new location will be the first in Chattanooga. The grand opening of this new location is set for fall.

Other locations include Murfreesboro, Tennessee; Huntsville, Alabama; Smyrna, Georgia; Hiram, Georgia; and Cumming, Georgia.


Father and son duo Jim and Nick Pihakis founded the barbecue joint in 1985.

The owners said that Jim N’ Nick’s specializes in barbecuing and smoking meat “low and slow.” The restaurant offers beef, chicken, pork and turkey.

The menu will also feature several other classic Southern dishes.
