Loved the food of this "restaurant". It is actually more a place for take out with some basic facilities to eat inside. Price quality is very good.

Miami and my need for Mofongo go hand in hand. With no Mofongo option in New Orleans (at least that I know of), while in South Florida, I knew I had to have it. To satisfy my need, I headed to Jimmy'z Kitchen in SoBe. There are three locations, though I have not been to them all. The South Beach... More

Good food, for reasonable price. Friendly service. Best mofongo in town. Perfect place for a quick but good quality lunch.

After a long day in the Miami beach sun, and too tired to go out, we ordered take-out from Jimmy'z Kitchen. They were very busy, and said it would be about an hour. The food arrived thirty minutes later! The grilled vegetable panini with goat cheese was delicious. And the Asian noodle salad with chicken was amazing! The portions are... More

Tiny place off the beaten track. Amazing salads with big, generous portions and fresh ingedients. Big menu choice with hot dishes too. Not lots of seating space available, about 10 persons but you can take out and they also deliver. Delicious, healthy meal.

My husband and I spent our anniversary in South Beach. He loves mofongo and a local friend told us about Jimmy'z kitchen. We drove by it twice and almost gave up on finding it. But thank goodness we didn't. The restaurant is small but we sat outside the weather the beautiful. The churassco chimichurri was a big enough portion for... More

Food is good but atmosphere is horrible. There are about 5 small tables inside and a few outside facing the parking lot. Steak sandwich, grilled veggie sandwich, and tuna salad were all fine. This place is fine for takeout, but certainly not conducive for dining.

This is a cool and unique little restaurant in Miami Beach very near all the action of Lincoln Road. The food was great, though the atmosphere is a little "bleh." Not much to this place, but the price was right and the food was terrific!

I had a Cubano sandwich there this week for lunch. As mentioned by other travelers, it took a while to get the food, but the service was very personable and attentive. Maybe if I'd ordered something fancier, I'd have been more impressed, but from my experience, I wouldn't do the half-hour wait (or more) for what I ate. Sorry. :(
