I have never been to this restaurant when I have not been greeted/seated by the owners themselves. Jimmy has a talent for making even first time customers feel like they are the only people in the room. The food is fresh and wonderful. I highly recommend the dumplings if you can take a little heat.

The food is excellent and the service is excellent but be prepared to either share your meal or order something off the adult plates they can eat because there are no KID dishes. We actually came here to find a place to replace Lucky Dragon and I think we found a pretty close replacement. They are friendly and the food... More

Well, obviously this is a much loved Evansville eatery. The reviews are (mostly) all good. We visited here on New Year's Eve. Maybe not the best time for efficient service...but it was S-L-O-W. (Maybe a fluke???) I do believe Jimmy did serve us himself. He was very pleasant and the food here IS good, but service so slow we almost... More

Jimmy's is a solid restaurant. Good place to get nicely prepared Szechwan food. Tucked in the corner of a strip mall might give one pause, but it is definitely worth walking in the front door.

Jimmy Jeng's is a definite favorite. I've lived in many places and tried a lot of Chinese and no one beats Jimmy'ds. I had the Homestyle scallops. Jimmy has the freshest seafood and cooks it perfectly. They melted in my mouth.. Don't forget the dumplings as an appetizer. Best flavor with the right spice. There is nothing I wouldn't try... More
