I was disappointed, we picked up the grandbabies and decided to go to Jimmy Changas so that the kids could play outside. The play area had that urine smell so bad that we had to pull them out of there early. After washing them down we were seated. Server seemed annoyed and wanted to get rid of us asap. We... More

Portions in this place were excellent. I loved the ice cream (not that it's special, but it's a great way to end a meal). We had all sorts of appetizers and entrees. We'd definitely come back here.

My family loves eating at Jimmy Changas./ the food is great and the atmosphere is great. We tend to go at off times to avoid the wait. It is a little pricey so just be aware of that.

Seriously, I was really unsure whether this place would be worth it. It was recommended by a coworker and upon arrival could tell this was a chain. It didn't matter one bit. The food was delicious. I have to say that the fish tacos were some of the best I've ever had. Wish I had room for the free ice... More

Love this place and this particular location has a good supply of friendly and efficient wait staff. The Happy Hour Rita's are delicious and a great bargain and the food is always good. The patio has a great vibe during happy hour.

Some of the best Tex/Mex food in the area, as indicated by the normal long lines at the busy time. They have good service when you can get a table, and great drinks and food. Only complaint is that its popular. Good value, and great food. Just pick a "off" time so the wait isn't so long.

Went early on a Friday evening got seated with in about 15 mins. Food was ok not the best just ok. Server was slow and thought the prices where a little for the quality of food. You pay for the atmosphere not the food.
