If you like donairs and mid eastern food this is the place to go. It is take out only. there are tables and chairs outside for use in good weather. Locals flock here for the quality and quantity for a very reasonable price. I would recommend going before or after the noon or dinner hours as it is... read more

Jimmy's is a bit of a local legend. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food makes up for the rundown appearance and lack of seating. Actually, the rundown appearance adds to the charm of this place. The food is excellent, the service is quick, and i you come at lunch you can expect to be standing... More

Always delicious but you better watch your waistline if you plan on eating here every week. The portions are very generous and its easily the best donair I have ever had in Canada. Try their mixed wrap, it has both meats and is absolutely life changing.

Probably the most sought after meal in the whole city, Jimmy's donairs are made with so much love and toppings. I will drive 40-50km to get this food in my mouth. You can't beat it anywhere!!!

Don't think much, just go to Jimmy's. Our friends and fam have been visiting Jimmy's Deli for years. There is just something about the prep, the goods and the sauce that makes in a winning combo. Always friendly, always consistent. If you like this type of food you've just found your go-to.

When we saw the place we were disappointed because it looked like a tiny hole-in-the-wall place but we were pleasantly surprised. The portions are INSANE & the beef donairs reminded me of visiting Turkey. Also had beef and chicken samosa, honestly the beef samosa is my favourite thing so far and my fridge has 2 chicken donairs for dinner because... More

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
