Good food

Go early, or you have to wait. The burritos, the marisco bowl, and the empanadas are really good. Ice cream cone for dessert

We absolutely love Jimmy Changas food as well as the fact that there is a play ground area for the kids since they get restless extremely fast. The drinks are really good too! There is a mango drink that is superb! And to top it all off...free ice cream when you leave!

We wanted to go somewhere we could have a drink with dinner and this place has very good service along with great Mexican food. Chips and Salsa was good. Decorated very nice for the mood of Mexican food and Margaritas. Had an appetizer and was plenty to eat also. Had to get a take out box. Music was nice also.

Yes .. I tried this for the first time ever at this restaurant and I must say that although it was a bit spicier then what I normally like, as an avocado lover it was just WONDERFUL .. I've eaten avocado many many many times and in many different ways, but this one is tops. If you are ever in... More

We have a lot of excellent Tex-Mex restaurants in the area, so Jimmy Changas faces some tough competition. For instance, My wife to be loves El Tiempo, my favorite is Papasitos, and my grandson always insists on Jimmy Changas. Price-wise, Jimmy Changas is the least expensive, but that affects taste, quality, and ingredients. JC has a children's playground - ours... More

A group of seniors from La Porte who dine out once a month, we are always looking for a place that accommodate From 8-15 or so at opening. Todays trip to Gringo's upscale cousin or brother was excellent. We have a very differing group of folks when it comes to lunch and the menu at Jimmy's was wide and substantial.... More
