Destination Grocer in Dallas

Great meatballs and cheeses. Huge selection of oils, condiments, olives, peppers. Before Dallas had diverse grocery stores like Central Market, Jimmy's was the only place for specialty items. Now it's still a go-to spot for some items, but not like it was 10 years ago.

This was an awesome experience! I had the meatball sub and tiramisu for dessert. The meatballs were obviously homemade, the bread was fresh, and the people were intentional. The owner mingled with customers and chatted them up like friends. This is definitely a little jewel in the rough where the customers are loyal and frequent. Just standing in an aisle... More

Jimmy's is the best! Being from New York, I come here not only for the food, but for the nostalgic experience. The sights, the aromas, yummmm!

Jimmy's has all Italian - sausage, cheese, wine, bread, etc. Best Muffalato sandwich in Dallas. Very large sandwich, so share. A few tables to eat there or take to park for picnic or to your own patio. Great wine tastings in house, both free and with dinners in backroom at various prices.

The place has an aroma unlike any other when you walk in. Reminds me of Italy. Bustling little place with tons of wine, meats, sausage, cheese, produce, pasta and much more. Some stuff even frozen ready for preparing when you get home

This is a hidden jewel! The family owners tend to customers as if each is a friend. Meat is fabulous. The sandwiches, made to order, are huge. Plan to share! And always look for "My Sister's Cookies." I can't pass up her fig newtons. She makes everything from scratch, using the old Italian family recipes. Good choices in the freezer,... More

We came here for a sandwich after looking at the website. The sandwich was excellent but the experience was even better. They have wine on tap. Yes, wine on tap. We had two glasses while perusing the store which has European foods, frozen pasta, pizza dough, wine... I could go on! We will be back for sure.
