Jimmy, you da man!

I had jimmy cater two parties of mine and he's the best. He personally came to drop off the large order for my sons baptism last summer. This place is fantastic. Thank you for bringing barbecue back to Malvern!

BBQ is better than Hood's in Unionville and Famous Dave's, but I've gone back just for the smoked bacon pieces!!

We live in the South and are BBQ snobs in every way. We were visiting family and were told to try Jimmy's. BBQ in the North? This place is unbelievable. Outstanding brisket,ribs and his bacon is a must try. We get up to see family a few times a year and Jimmy's is a must stop.

Since Pig Out had closed down a while ago, I have been looking for a good BBQ place. I have been wanting to go up to Grumpy's , but just started out late. So I googled and this place came up. It was worth the 30 minute drive. The BBQ was stacked high, and I dressed it with their scrumptious... More

Wow, what a great experience my wife and I just had here. I was looking for ribs, and Google said this was a candidate. TripAdvisor rated it high, so we gave it a try. Nice surprise. The ribs are served dry, and there is plenty of sauce available on the table (3 or 4 different choices). I never used any... More

I am a BBQ snob- especially when it comes to ribs. For me, they have to fall off the bone and have the right sauce combination. Hubby and I moved to the area and decided to check this place out. We ordered a rack of ribs, coleslaw, baked beans and cornbread. The ribs were one of the best I've had-... More

The BBQ is very good. The smell as soon as you walk in makes your mouth water. The cornbread was good. It is a casual style inside.

I had the opportunity to sit down with the owner and try a good selection of all of the different varieties of foods on the menu. I must say that I was NOT disappointed in one...this is some of the Best BBQ around. The Brisket is outstanding, the wings are grilled and delicious, not to mention the Ribs & Pulled... More

The people at Jimmy's are making great barbecue. The restaurant centers around their huge smoker, and you can't miss the smell when you drive by on route 30. I've had the ribs on many occasions, and have always been pleased. The smoked bacon is mandatory eating-do not leave without trying some! My only gripe is that the second time I... More
