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.

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.

Very good staff at the bar. Excellent margaritas and only had appetizers but they were good! Atmosphere is really nice, especially in the winter months with the waterfall lit up.

Introduced my daughters to Jimmy Changas and this is the only Mexican food we go to when they come into town. Their selection of plates is tops and no matter what we order, we are always happy. I don't know of anyone of us that has ever been disappointed. Lots of food for the money and the quality is superb.
