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

Fantastic bbq for the area. The food has a good smoke ring to it, nice and tender, and they even have some good sauce if you are into that. The smoked bacon is outstanding. The sides are great as well, really enjoyed the beans. The pulled pork had a great flavor and the sausage has a good spice to it.

If to you bbq means burned food with small sides then head to this place. We either hit this place on a bad night or the other reviews are inaccurate. Half of the ribs were black with carbon. They should have be embarrassed to serve use those ribs. A backyard bbq would have been much better. The hot bbq sauce... More

We saw a story about Jimmy's on a local TV foodie program and tried it shortly afterward. We were very pleased with our orders - ribs for me and salmon for my wife. The ribs were quite large and meaty, and my wife was very pleased with the salmon, which seemed an unusual item on a BBQ menu. We also... More

Main dishes are great...pulled pork, pulled chicken, ribs, etc. Smokey bbq with a choice of 3 bbq sauces to try which you put on yourself which I like. Sides are ok. I would stick with the main dishes. Service was fine...no issues.

We used Jimmy's BBQ for a recent business association event. Food was delicious and plentiful. I was first taken here by a friend from Texas who thought it was pretty good BBQ which I thought was a big compliment. At the catered event I tried a little of everything, pulled pork, ribs and chicken. I liked the pulled pork the... More

This place has some decent bbq and is a good spot for lunch. Their variety of sauces is a nice touch just prepare to get messy.

We have been to this place several times. The food is very good. They are very nice and helpful when ordering. I am a fan of the cornbread and of course the ribs. We like the casual style and the interior. Some days it's very hot inside.

Went to Jimmy's for lunch today after having passed it many times while dining at other restaurants in the Westgate Plaza. I was hoping for more than what Jimmy's delivered. I had the pulled pork sandwich and while the bun was overflowing with meat, it was just OK, in my opinion. There was hardly any sauce on the meat, and... More

First time trying Jimmy's after finding it on the internet. I would recommend it to anyone - you get a lot for what you pay for and the brisket was so tender - didn't need a knife. TRY IT!!!!!
