Jim and nicks is pretty good, and the cream pies are really good. But something about the BBQ is not quite right. Each time we've been the pork is dry, has no smoky flavor, and no red smoke ring on the outside of the meat.

There are two pallets of wood outside near the patio, but Im starting to think they are just for show, and they are tossing pork butts in a convection oven for a few hours.

Also tried Maurice's in front of Wal-Mart in Rock Hill, I don't know what all the fuss is about, the bbq is bland and tasteless and so is the sauce. The only put out the regular sauce, so if you like spicy sauce your out of luck at Maurice's.

Gee....I'm glad someone else noticed.....hate to be negative, but we ate there the other day and we had the ribs and they were terrible.
The meat was so dry and tough, I thought I was eating Beef Jerky on a bone!. Not one drop of juice was on our plates. For $16 for a 1/2 and $22 for a Full. I found it a little $$.....I was disappointed

We like to try new places in the area but have not tried Jim and Nicks yet. Does it even compare to Courtney's in Clover. So far that is hands down the best BBQ I have had, but always like to give a new place a chance.

Hubby took me and the kids for coffee and dessert to this little quaint coffee shop in downtown FM on Confederate Street. I have to say that the shop lives up to its name. Tastefully furnished in antiques with books, magazines and old furniture, both atmosphere and coffee was excellent. Not only was the coffee great, the prices are less than what one would pay at Starbuck's. A guest guitarist playing classical music was there tonight. They had small separate sitting rooms which makes for a very relaxing experience. A function room is available sitting 14 for private parties. Georgia the owner, a Charlotte native was a gracious host and stops by the tables to greet customers and chat for a little bit. Outside is a small garden with chairs and tables for those who want a little nature retreat. The place reminds me of a bed and breakfast...my daughter who's a freshman realized that most of her friends at FMHS and NFHS actually have been there before and are repeat customers. I guess that makes the place "cool". Definitely a recommend and we will return to sample some lite fare.

The shop also exhibits products of local artists who she is very much into supporting. There was some handmade jewelry, painting, photos and pottery.

We tried this place last night and it was great. It is a Cuban restaurant called

Carlos' Cafe
1998 Cherry Rd
Rock Hill, SC 29732
Phone: (803) 329-7171

It is a family owned restaurant serving authentic Cuban food and in a nice friendly family oriented type setting. I tried the Lechon Asado or Roast Pork, with rice and beans, sweet plantains and onions. My wife had the the masitas de puerco or pork chunks, also with rice and beans, tostones, and fried yucca in garlic sauce. They also serve authentic Cuban sandwiches. For dessert, we had the tres leche cake or three milk cake. It was delicious. The prices was very affordable and the owners/wait staff were very attentive. I definitely recommend this restaurant. It is a different experience that you will enjoy!

Some favorites in Rock Hill:

Thai Palace on Anderson Rd./21 bypass
The Little Cafe for breakfast, on Mt. Gallant Rd.
Charanda for Mexican (Dave Lyle, near Food Lion)
Thi's Place on Main (Vietnamese)
Wing King on Oakland Ave.

I try to avoid the national chains, but I like the ribs at Firebonz on Cherry Rd., and the service is always excellent.
