Great stop for motorcycles.

The ride through the Hocking Hills to get here is part of the adventure. They do have cold beer and great hamburgers. It is a nice place to stop and refresh before you head back out to your next destination. Do not pass this one up as this place is famous here in Ohio, parts of West Virginia and... read more

Went there for a wedding reception. I had the Jimbo burger that didn't have much flavor. The cole slaw was also bland. My husband was interested in trying the pulled pork sandwich but was disappointed by the lack of BBQ sauce and flavor. To each their own. We tried it but won't try it again.

They cater to the biker crowd. Locals are not welcome here. The food is good, but expensive. Be sure to check their hours and days they are open before you go. They are closed more than opened.

I was in the Hocking Hills area, sadly not on the motorcycle, and decided to stop in and give Jimbo's a try for lunch. I had the Jimbo burger and some onion rings. The burger was tasty and more than enough to eat. I ate inside and the wait staff was very attentive. Not much in the way of ambiance... More

This little bar had a great atmosphere and had a wide variety of patrons. We visisted in June so a lot of bikes stopped in, food was typical bar food but very good and freindly staff.

I don't go to bars, except this one, and I go there for the food. Joy, the owner, is the chef and she is serious about feeding people. Portions are large. Try the pulled pork if they have it, it's amazing! Joy makes it herself. The staff is friendly, smoking is outside at the picnic tables under an awning, the... More

This so called bar and diner isn't fit for livestock to graze in. The owner, a female, is one of the rudest people I have ever dealt with. If your looking for a good place to eat and enjoy your hard earned money, if you go to this joint you might as well flush it down the toilet. You will... More

I'm not a biker, but Jimbo's has great burgers and friendly staff. I didn't feel out of place at all. There is really big selection of beer and about 10 different types of burgers. They have other food as well, but I think they are known for the burgers. Excellent choice! They are only open Thurs. - Sun.
