About 3rd time eating at Jimmy's and am very impressed as a local business with good tasting food, large portions at a reasonable cost, and good service. Had a dinner special of chicken fried steak w. brown gravy, baked potato with the works, creamy chicken noodle soup, large salad, and a chocolate pudding with whipped cream on it. Other entree...

Had a Reuben; it was different but good. My wife had a huge breakfast plate. She took home enough for a second breakfast. Great service.

Well, it's a coffee shop / diner that's for sure --- nothing special. They're very nice here, but the food is not the best and I found the prices to be high for what you get -- great place if no other alternatives.

Good basic breakfast anytime. The place is not fancy. In fact, it is unintentionally 60's to 70's retro. It is a clean, average, friendly, old school coffee shop. Never a wait.

Stay away. Food was poor. I enjoy a good greasy spoon, this is not worth the trip
