Brother Jimmy's BBQ
While Brother Jimmy's BBQ has evolved from a simple barbecue restaurant into a Zagat-rated nightlife spot over the years, its food has remained traditionally North Carolina. The menu, which changes subtly based on each restaurant location, is always grounded in southern-style barbecue traditions, including classic dishes such as ribs, pulled pork, and sliced brisket that's been smoked over hickory for up to 12 hours. And any transformation from BBQ joint to nightspot wouldn't be complete without a 3-ton disco ball or a quality bar, and Brother Jimmy's bar is quality. The bartenders serve up top-shelf whiskey and scotches, and mix unique gourmet cocktails.
In addition to being diehard barbecue fans, many of Brother Jimmy's customers are also diehard fans of the A.C.C.'s football teams. So to offer a convivial refuge for Duke, North Carolina, and other A.C.C. fans, Brother Jimmy's locations feature 20 flat screen televisions blasting games throughout the season.
