Had a turkey sandwich, fries, & slaw at Smokin' Jim's last Friday. The turkey was a weird brown color, not like any other smoked turkey I've gotten there or any other place. Tasted a little funky. The cole slaw was sour, maybe rancid. Took one bite, & that was enough of that. Did a lot of toilet time on Saturday. Was also nauseous, but, thank God, I didn't go there. The last couple of times I've been to Smokin' Jim's I wasn't satisfied. The beef & pork were tough. Now the turkey's bad. Won't be going back there for a really long time. Sorry guys.

I stopped for dinner last Saturday and had the pulled pork sandwich and it was piled high in that great pita bread pocket and was GREAT as usual. Still say it's the best pulled pork sandwich I have ever had!

On Friday? Hmmm. Interesting, I was there and don't eat pork. I always have turkey sandwich with cole slaw on it. Didn't find any of these problems.

Someone is being f'ugly here. Pulled pork tough? Shredded beef tough? Come one, toots.

Never once have I had food that was bad, tasted spoiled, or found the quality lacking.

Woman, don't you think you ain't too smart if the color, taste and smell was as you described and you went ahead and ate a bite plus had past experiences there. The colon cleanse you took was not one bite of food I predict and why get on here and apologize. Now you could be smokin' butts of your own and starting up an offshoot restaurant. Read your post again, you are kinda crazy and they don't need you.

They run a good business and the food is great. I have ate there many times and have always been well pleased with the food that is served.

Customers are an odd bunch. My neighbors and I went to Jim's on a busy Saturday night. A man came huffing and puffing out the door and said to us, "Well, you might as well go somewhere else. They're out of ribs!!!!!!"

My neighbor's blonde wife is a kick and replied, "That's okay, we don't eat pork, we're Muslims." We kept a straight face and looked at the man. He seemed confused.

Priceless. We laughed our asses off once inside.

Well I use to eat there at least once a week, liked the food and recommended them to others.

But, I asked them if I could hang business flyers and was told business cards only,,,,,, so I haven't been back and don't recommend it to anyone anymore.

If they could not support me there is no sense of me supporting them,,,,

At the time it wasn't bad food and certainly better than the old Pappies!!

and it is to bad Poppies closed, cause I thought they were the best barbeque in town!!

And just one other note,,,, Dan's Cuban place sure is good food and so is the Cuban coffee!!

I reckon Jim & his wife didn't take you to raise. Maybe if you pitch in on the rent they'll let you litter their walls with your flyers.

Well, damn, they should have made an exception just for you and littered the walls with your flyers. Right?
Hate to say it, but I doubt you are missed as crowds continue to fill up the place Th-Sat. I'll go tomorrow to make up for your absence.

I'm sorry if you disagree, or think my post sounds crazy, but I stand by it. It's true. I ate the sandwich, having faith that those people would not serve anything bad. I was thinking they may have done something different in the preparation, but not anything bad. I didn't eat the cole slaw because it definitely tasted bad. I've eaten at Smokin' Jim's many times in the past & liked it, but like I said, my last few times were not good - tough meat like I said. Sorry if you don't agree, but this was my experience whether you like it or not. I VERY rarely post anything to this Topix because of the negativity, but I posted this, not to be ugly, but to make people aware, so they wouldn't get sick.

I'm glad you didn't get bad food on Friday. I did. As I mentioned in another post, I've eaten at Smokin' Jim's many times in the past, & I liked it, but that last few times I did get tough meat. I didn't post about that, but getting the trots is something altogether different - something that shouldn't be ignored. That's an indication that the food has somehow been contaminated. I posted, not to be ugly, but just to make people aware.

Negativity? Three posts about food you claim was spoiled!!! No one agrees with you. Why didn't you talk to the owners instead of posting all this BS on TOPIX? By the looks of the crowds there this weekend, your opinion is baseless and they aren't hurting for customers. You are ugly and your post was IN BAD TASTE.
