“Typical greasy spoon.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Typical old school diner. Menu follows. Food was fair. Just kind of had that "ick" feeling that the place just really isn't that clean.

“Great diner in a great town!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

Jimmie's is the only true diner in town that makes you feel comfortable. The food is great and at a good price. Yes, the inside may need some updating, but I have never had a bad experience here. The staff is friendly and they are one of the oldest running restaurants in town!

Reminds me of a cheap diner... I went with my mother-in-law and she got food poisoning. :(

“Nothing special, but good.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

Jimmies, a local joint, with locals eating there. That says something. Specials of the day, great breakfast (all day), good portions. Need I say more?

“The owner is the RUDEST person I have ever met!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2011

We didn't actually eat the food because the owner was screaming at people outside his resturant. He was loud and using disgusting launguage to the people. Sorry, but the way he acted was appauling.
