I mean for a greasy spoon joint, it's ok.... Just very average. Same boring meals. Every time I eat there it does not agree with my stomach. There are plenty of other restaurants in town.

It took 40 mins to get the food. Eggs were cold, pancakes were dry- they had been sitting under the heat lamp, French toast tasted like paste, the bacon was undercooked and the hash brown were swimming in grease and had tons of some kind of spice on them. Whatever they use for maple syrup, was very low quality, and... More

I love Jimmy's for breakfast. On those mornings after a rough night out, I really feel that they could stay open 'til 2 or 3 quite comfortably. There are places in town that do all day breakfasts. Why Jimmy's doesn't is a mystery to me. Also, the service takes what seems like years! The food is well worth the wait... More

Typical old school diner. Menu follows. Food was fair. Just kind of had that "ick" feeling that the place just really isn't that clean.

Jimmie's is the only true diner in town that makes you feel comfortable. The food is great and at a good price. Yes, the inside may need some updating, but I have never had a bad experience here. The staff is friendly and they are one of the oldest running restaurants in town!

Reminds me of a cheap diner... I went with my mother-in-law and she got food poisoning. :(

Jimmies, a local joint, with locals eating there. That says something. Specials of the day, great breakfast (all day), good portions. Need I say more?

We didn't actually eat the food because the owner was screaming at people outside his resturant. He was loud and using disgusting launguage to the people. Sorry, but the way he acted was appauling.

Went for breakfast. Service was excellent. The waitress was pleasant and checked back with us several times. The special (typical egg, pancake, etc.) was delicious. Numerous options! The place was crowded but no one was sitting there looking around for a waitress. My only comment to the cook is that he might want to change the white pancake batter. There... More
