If people bash a business on Topix, I know it's probably a good business. If people bash local leaders on Topix, that typically means they're doing a good job. Thanks to topix for making it easy on me.

Rude owner? Interesting. When does she HAVE TIME to be rude...the woman busts her butt behind the counter just like her husband.
Have met both her and her husband and they are nice people. The rude person I've encountered twice was the one taking orders at the counter. After she snapped/barked the first time, I just left, but went back a couple of times later with friends and the food was great.

What a weird way to look at it, there were cards & other advertisements already littering the wall if that is what you want to call it.

I am looking for work, been in survival mode for a while now, and my two cents in this is simply supporting local businesses, hence each other!

You are right about one thing, they don't need me, my money, nor my recommendations', and I surely don't need their food.

No need to match wits here, You just enjoy yourself eating there while looking at the litter on the walls.

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.
The reply to froggy is for you too. I am not interested matching wits with your kind of thinking.

I said my peace on my first post..

Maybe if you spent more time looking for work and less time complaining you wouldn't be in survival mode.

I love it when we're in a long line and then the people get to the counter and still don't know what they want after having a menu right in front of their face! I'd snap, too.

Or, the idiots who take everyone else's time while they write a check or count out money and change. The people who ask the dumbest questions on my time also make me postal.

IMAGINE WORKING AT THAT COUNTER!!!!

I have yet to eat at the place. Judging from this thread I will not be trying it out. That is not based on the complaints over the food..I know you get some bad even at the best spot..The quality of the fellow diners seems very low. from the way they act here, not a place I would want to sit with my family and listen to gossip about how better everyone is than the guy trying every way he can to find work.

To the guy looking for work, I hope it pans out soon for you.

So for the tally, that's -1, 6 person family that will never try the place based on the clientele.

You are on TOPIX making your share of negative comments so your class is in question now. A restaurant is not an employment agency. I doubt Jim's will go broke without your one to six family members showing up. Laughing my smoked butt off.

Thanks if that was directed towards me!!

The food was ok for me, it's hit of miss like most places if you know what I mean. I can and will do without based on my principals,
That is all I was stating in the first place.

By the way, I am doing very well work wise, Thanks again for your good thoughts!! Recently put an ad in the paper for some help and received 30 replies, and now I feel for them.

Froggy if your reading this, it is not all about me,, you just don't get it, it is about everyone supporting each other, I do help others within my means especially if they want to help themselves, I visit someone I don't know at the nursing home every week, I live with Leukemia not knowing if I have 1 year or 5 years, but I still have principals!

Chicken Butt (seems like an appropriate name for you), why are you so angry & using such toilet/trash talk? Are you the owner? What I wrote was not an opinion. It was truth. So get over it.

I go to Jim's Smokin Que at least twice a month. Its the BEST BBQ place in North Georgia, hands down. I've gotten friends from Atlanta hooked on it. Its only open Thursday, Friday & Saturday, and you might have to stand in line awhile on Saturdays, but the wait is worth it.

If they only served tater tots ...

Went there on Friday about 3 p.m. and it was busy. Always good food.
Took friends from out of town and they loved the food.
I like the way Jim wanders around and talks to his customers.

Try the pumpkin cheesecake for dessert!
