Jimn'nicks-great gluten-free Bbq In Southcarolina!
0

5 posts in this topic

My family is staying just outside of Charleston, SC this week, and I wanted to let everyone know what a wonderful experience we have had at Jim N' Nick's Bar-B-Q in North Charleston. We have been there twice for lunch so far. The first time, a couple of days ago, the staff there was very kind and helpful with trying to find gluten-free menu items for me (they do not have an actual gluten-free menu). The waiter and the kitchen manager were a little unsure if one of the ingredients in the BBQ sauce contained gluten, so I ended up with a baked potato for lunch, but I was grateful that they were being so careful about it. They did pan-cook a chicken breast for me separately, to serve over the potato with cheese and bacon. The waiter said that they would contact corporate to find out about the sauce, so that they would know for sure. We went there again today for lunch, and it just so happened that the general manager was there that day. He assured us that the BBQ sauce does not contain any gluten, and that none of the meat in their smokers contain any gluten. I was able to get smoked BBQ chicken, which was delicious! I can't wait to go back and try the beef or the pork!

Here is a link to their website: http://www.jimnnicks.com/

They do have a lot of breaded and fried things on their menu that obviously would be off-limits, but the smoked meats are not prepared near these things (although I would still make sure to alert the staff of the need for gluten-free before you order, just to help insure any accidental cross-contamination). We were also told that if I wanted to get a sandwich, it would be fine for me to bring in my own bun.

I can't say enough about how kind and helpful the manager and staff were there! I told them I would spread the word that they are a gluten-free friendly restaurant!

Been to the Jim 'n Nicks in Destin, FL. Loved it! If you email them they will send you a long list of gluten-free options. Their fried catfish is breaded in cornmeal so it is gluten-free, you just have to double check if it is fried separately. Yummy!

Abbysmom - thanks for the info! However, we are back at home in Maryland and unfortunately we don't have Jim N' Nick's here, but I will keep that in mind for the next time we are in the south! I suspect that it is likely that the catfish is fried in the same fryers, but it is definitely worth asking. We had gotten a business card from the manager when we were there, so I plan on emailing their corporate office to tell them how helpful the manager and the rest of the staff were. I also thought I would also ask if they would ever consider offering a gluten-free menu, since they already offer items that happen to be gluten-free to begin with. I figured I would send them contact info for the Gluten Intolerance Group.

BTW - We went there again for lunch one more time before we left and I had the beef brisket - also delicious!

Thanks so much for the Jim and Nick's info. we have found them SO helpful locally - we eat there all the time b/c it's one place everyone likes. i've been too chicken to try the fried catfish...i should have thought to try the board first! i'm going to try it tonight. crackers and fried foods are the two craves it's hard to replace gluten free. thanks again!

    • Marshmallow Fruity Pebbles
      I have been gluten free now since February and I recently purchased a box of Marshmallows Fruity Pebbles and looked at the ingredients (which none indicated gluten content), but am just wondering if anyone has had a problem with them. 
    • Test Results
      Update: I am about at my wit's end. I won't be able to see my new doctor until July 17 to get a referral to a GI doctor, so I continue to eat gluten and the effects continue to worsen. Today my boss, whom I have been working with for 12 years, and I had a meeting where he said he's noticed a change in many things, such as speech, not articulating well, forgetfulness, and other things that are affecting my work product. I finally told him I know there is something wrong with me medically and I've been trying to get to the doctor to no avail. I recall those four weeks early in the year when I tried out gluten free and was beginning to feel much better- more present, more sharp, and then went back on gluten in preparation for the blood test.  I just don't think I can do this gluten thing any longer and am thinking of going cold-turkey gluten free.  I'm 54 years old, am beginning not to care about a diagnosis because I just want to feel better and be able to do what I need to do. Because of how I felt going off of gluten earlier in the year, and eating gluten free when I was on the McDougall plan years ago, and how I feel while doing this gluten challenge, I am pretty convinced that my issue is gluten.  Any words of encouragement would be welcome.  If you've done gluten free and never looked back, tell me about it. 
    • Gardasil
      "I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil Thank you I have a young daughter and have wondered this exact question posed by the poster and your response has given me great pause about this issue which may come up in years to come. I am sorry to hear this wreak havoc on your life, but simultaneously thank you for sharing this detail to help those of us that have likely been decades misdiagnosed celiacs now raising children. Thank you.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
