best bartender!! – good place for a few drinks with friends. the food is great too.
the bartender is the best there is in nyc.
Good Old BBQ – Nice college crowd and bbq. The ribs are very tasty and so is the pulled pork sandwich. However, I would probably pass on the shrimp po boy. Just a no-nonsense restaurant where you can relax and have some good eats and drink.
Great Place for a Birthday! – I went here for my birthday that happened to be on a tuesday night and it was awesome!! They had karaoke so right away I was hooked. The waitress was so nice she gave me a complimentary fish bowl drink for my bday complete with an alligator in it! Everyone was totally chill and you can act and do pretty much whatever and you wont feel out of place or that your being too loud. I would highly recomend this for an awesome place to go with a group or to mingle with the locals of the upper west side.
Citysearch Editorial Review – Early on, this local mini-chain earned a reputation for its loud bar scene. There's still an active social life centered around the bar, but the restaurant has mellowed out, and in the early evening, you'll find families and less youthful folks who have come for the food. All the barbecue is smoked in-house over hickory, and the ribs come in three varieties: Northern (sweet), Southern (spicy) and dry rub.
Cheap beer and good eats if you don't mind frat houses – The beer was well priced, and the wings are some of the better ones I've tried in the city. Bartending staff is generally pleasant and the crowd is young and in a stupor. Very reminiscent of a college - frat hangout, but worth visiting nonetheless
fabulous ribs, very friendly and attentive waitress Melissa – we've been to this UWS restaurant a few times and always find the ribs fabulous. Our favorite is the northern style ribs which fall off the bone, and the well seasoned honey BBQ sauce on top of the ribs is just phenomenal!!!!! The dry rub and southern style are both very good too, so are the homemade trimmings, especially the cole slaw, fire fries (yum!), collard greens, and candied yams with walnuts.
The place is decorated like a sports bar so of course no romantic, but it is not very noisy although somehow a bit too dark. We've never been to the south and Brother Jimmy's brought us to the idea of visiting the south because of the good food!!!
All in all a very pleasant dining experience!
oh snap its good – good stuff. ribs fall off the bone and after all my drinks so did I. A bit more uptown then I am used to but worth the trip.
Go Heels! – If you wentto school in the south, this is a great place to get some good southern BBQ, and watch ACC games. Brings you back to the good ole days...
Great Southern BBQ – I am from the south and miss my BBQ. This restaurant made me feel right at home with the relaxed atmosphere and great food. And you can't beat the fact that there are food and drink specials almost every night of the week.
Where the North meets the South. – I am from North Carolina and a graduate of NC State. Finding Brother Jimmys is an oasis for a southerner that is missing home or just wants to be in a place that is an homage for ACC fans. The food is great southern fare, bringing in both great BBQ and lots of great fried veggies. The appitizers are not to be missed either, pulled pork or chicken quesadillas are tops and their nachos will give any restaurant a run for their money. But the best are the rib tips, do not miss. Go, drink, eat and have fun.
