Brother Jimmy’s has been keeping the convivial spirit of barbecue alive for over twenty years with authentic North Carolina grub and an atmosphere that keeps the nightlife spirit going strong all night long. Whether it’s the prime sports viewing, casual vibe, or the hush puppies, Brother Jimmy’s seems to have no problem drawing people in and we’re pretty sure their Carolina-bent BBQ menu has something to do with it. ”Put some south in yo mouth” is the unofficial motto at all of the Brother Jimmy’s locations, and we say, why not? Take the starters for example. Southern staples include popcorn shrimp, fried green tomatoes, rib tips and peel and eat shrimp. Still hungry? There’s lots of BBQ to choose from — dry rub ribs, pulled chicken, or sliced brisket – and all of it’s smoked over Hickory wood for anywhere between five and 12 hours. Side it with fried okra, candied yams with walnuts and bacon-laced black-eyed peas and you’ve got a southern feast.
