This casual BBQ joint in the El San Juan is filled with North Carolina memorabilia, especially UNC-Chapel Hill references. Fun place...great Happy Hour.

while setting on the beach some girls were handing on coupons for the restaurant. Had seen before but did not realize what the roof top place was. At first impression I thought the prices were gonna be a bit pricey for me. However once I saw the portions and saw the food I changed my mind. If you get here... More

After reading previous reviews I am a bit confused as to why this restaurant receive such bad reviews. We had a great experience at Brother Jimmy's! On our last night we were searching high and low for a restaurant to grab a bite and relax at. We stumbled upon Brother Jimmy's when walking into the hotel and finding the menu... More

Upon check-in, my family and I were provided with free drink coupons (buy one/get one free) to be used at Brother Jimmy's on the tenth floor of the hotel. Since we had already eaten, we decided to use the coupons for Virgin Pina Coladas and come back the next night... More

On the 10th floor this roof top open air Rib joint plays good old rock and roll while sports is on the TV. Okay to go in shorts and flip flops but not really the classy look. Oh did I mention they have really good ribs? try the combo platter and try the brisket too. It's a nice relaxing meal.... More

Dined there in May 2014 with a local prepaid discount voucher in a late Saturday afternoon. The place was almost empty. The pulled pork dinner was not hot enough and tasted like reheated in microwave from the previous day. The only food that was hot and tasted fine were the French Fries! The servers never checked to refill our soft... More
