Best BBQ in the area

As I have read, there are many styles of BBQ. Jimmy has a nice website, illustrating how he prepares the meat. It is shredded, on a bun and your sauce selection is in squeeze bottles on your table. I am a huge fan of the spicey, nice vinegar kick. Prices very reasonable. Side dishes are... read more

Last minute pick about an hour before closing. It was a warm summer evening so we sat outside at one of the two tables, which was appreciably cooler than the dining room. We ordered the ribs and the brisket. Both were very perfectly cooked, well seasoned with Jimmy's rub and finger lickin' good. The platters came with two sides. The... More

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.
