Went on a recommendation of family and wasn’t disappointed. Very good Tex-Mex at a decent price. Oversized 40+ oz drinks for the big drinkers. A must try!!

When you walk into Jimbo's you will immediately be amazed by the water fall and ponds throughout the unique restaurant. The food is great and prices reasonable. A must eatery when in Sint Maarten.
