My family and I love this place. If you love Donairs - You cannot Miss Jimmy's. Jimmy has been around for years and offers the best donairs in Calgary - Hands down (in my opinion). A regular size donair here is generous (in fact, it's huge) - the taste is truly a 10/10 on the yummy scale. Just the right... More

We lived a block away from here, and it was dangerous. We love this place and anytime we are back in Calgary my husband is dying to go back. Authentic donairs and shawarma's that are huge and bursting with delicious flavours. I really enjoy the salad donair, YUM!

So good. Been here twice for the beef donair love them. Service is nice and friendly. Get here early because they are so busy during the lunch hour! The cook seems to have clean practices. He tasted some mix using a plastic spoon and threw the spoon away I've seen a double dip in so many other delis it was... More

This is one of my family's favourite take-out spots. It serves seriously delicious shawarma: they are huge (the small is misnamed, the large could feed a family!), and filled with so much chicken and vegetables and sauce that there is no delicate way to eat these -- definitely NOT first date food, but so good! They serve a nice selection... More

I have not had jimmy's for a few years but wanted to give my opinion. I always heard how great and amazing the donairs at jimmy's are. I used to live close by so i finally tried it one day. It was the worst donair i ever had. All they do is stuff way too much meat into the pita... More

Service is always fast and food is very tasty. We don't order a large anymore. A medium is the way to go because large is way too much. Potato wedges are a waste. They charge a lot for a little bowl of bland potatoes. There's a sitting area upstairs but this place can get real busy during lunch time as... More

As usual the line is long but it moves fast. This wonderful kebab shop delivers. Last time I was there I saw 7 spinning spits with various meats, chicken, beef and lamb. It's all good here. Huge portions. Only downfall is the patio ( minuscule) is always full so we end up eating in the car. Great selection of middle... More

Poor service, shawarma lacking meat and accompaniment. Way over priced for what is offered.I used to eat at A&A when it was on 14th Street much much better way back then. Will not bother going back the pita basket downtown far better with nice accompaniments and for way less money. .
