Decided to try out Jimmy's for the Saturday buffet. I was not disappointed!! It was delicious, hot and fresh! They had fried eggs, scrambled eggs, a egg scramble (egg, tomato, bell pepper, bacon, sausage, onion, topped with cheese), Hashbrowns, waffles, pancakes, bacon, fresh biscuits, chocolate gravy, white gravy, fried bologna, and sausage!! Give it a try! You will love it!

First time customers @ Saturday breakfast buffet. Real (Not from a mix) cream gravy - delicious! Good hash browns. My husband and I have lived in many states, traveled in all 50 states, and eaten at hundreds of restaurants and never before have we encountered such perfectly cooked fried eggs; and on a buffet, no less. Incredible! Everything was tasty,... More

We're always looking for good local places to eat that are off the beaten path. We stopped at Jimmy's Diner for lunch as we were passing through. Everything we had was good: chili, fried pork chop, cornbread dressing, grilled chicken sandwich, black-eyed peas, and meat loaf. Some of which came from the lunch buffet offering. Worth a visit if you're... More

A friend had mentioned Jimmy's to me so we thought we would try it. We were greeted at the door with a good morning when we arrived. I was blown away with finding not only scrambled (real) eggs on the buffet but also over medium eggs, and scrambled eggs with onions and bell pepper. Not only fried potatoes but hashbrowns... More
