I've come here every weekend since I discovered this place 4 months ago and nearly every time my meal has been 100% delicious. They are well generous with the meat, a small shawarama fills you up for the entire day and the customer service is excellent! I can't really fault the place at all, I recommend 'The Combo' with a...

I had heard from a friend to check Jimmy's out. a small place, but lined up at 11:45am, suits, utility workers, students - all here. Most of us were having the shawarma sandwich. This is an explosion of taste and texture. I had the Lamb, would definitely try the chicken as well. I was warned that there is a lot... More

One of the best Shawarmas in town. The way the roll the pita, it's not really that well contained, so it can get pretty messy. If you are eating it at a table, that's no problem, but if you plan on sitting on a park bench or something, watch out for drips on your pants. Very good chicken, and always... More

This place is wonderful; the staff is always friendly and attentive and the food is delicious. When I took my boyfriend there for the first time, the woman that attended us immediately noted his wide-eyed stare at the plethora of marinated olives, roasting meats and cases of pastries (both savoury and sweet) and immediately assembled a sample plate of meats...

Always stop by here or Shawarma Knight for my falafel fix on the way home from work for a quick take out meal. The service is second to none at Jimmys and the food always satisfying. A little heavy on the sauces, I tell them to go easy on the garlic sauce. Mouthwatering! Would highly recommend for the Mideast cravings.

Never a dull moment and don’t be fooled by the lineup…it is worth the wait (and it’s there for a reason) and part of the experience is the lineup itself. Now for the food…Really can’t... More

Just be sure to work up an appetite to get yourselves around their colossal bites. Love the food. There's a reason why these guys get a mention on the internet whenever websites ask for people's opinions on best eats in Calgary (see Buzzfeed).
