Great Burgers and a Wide Range of Brews

Jimbo's is a no frills establishment that is popular with the motorcycle crowd. They make juicy, perfectly cooked 3/4 pound burgers with a wide array of toppings (ranges in price from $7 to $10) for a sandwich; you can upgrade to a platter for a couple bucks). They also have a vegan burger and... read more

Great weather, beautiful scenery, and great food. when we got there, my wife and I split a bacon Swiss burger and fries...our friends split a burger and chili, the staff was excellent, the bar was clean...

My friends and I happened upon Jimbo's as we were driving around in search of an after-hiking drink (doesn't everyone?). It was one of the few places open on that beautiful Sunday afternoon. The staff was super friendly and Jimbo's widow even came out to talk with us. We didn't order any food because we had a 'fridge full of... 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.

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 Kentucky... More

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
