Stopped here for lunch. The prices are definitely reasonable. I ordered the chili and my husband had a tuna fish sandwich. Nothing special about either one.

Jimmy's is such a wonderful place. It is completely family-owned and operated, service is excellent, their prices are good, the food is fantastic, and it comes to you really quickly. You will leave completely satisfied! They open very early and usually close earlier than other establishments; breakfast is definitely their specialty. Highly recommended!

This restaurant is small but the food is outstanding and has fast service. It has a small town feeling in a growing community. Best eggs in town.
