It's totally not what you see on the internet. Dark and small, looks not good at all and didn't want to go inside.

Disgusting! This place needs to be cleaned up. If this was in NY or Cali it would be closed for sanitation reasons. Lucky for them there are no such regulations in Miami.

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

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
