Jimmy' does smoked meat right. I love the sandwiches, any combo and I get them on the TX toast. His potato salad is wicked good.

“LOVE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Lots of great tasting BBQ. Great service. Nice variety of food, but not too many items, which is a good thing. What they have is very, very good, and of high quality.

“There should be an 8 or 10 star rating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

I am a transplanted (by my Iowa born & raised wife) Okie. I have resided extensively in Texas, Louisiana, New Mexico, and spent time in several other southern states. I really enjoy Bar-B-Que, and have eaten it across the South. Imagine my TREMENDOUS surprise to get such excellent fare in Boone, IA. I have eaten just about everything on the menu, and it is all delicious. I love the rib tips, and the brisket is right there among the best I have ever tasted. There are 3 sizes of sandwiches if you do not want a full meal, and the "Sloppy Jimmy" is highly recommended! The sides are fine also, but the meat is the jewel! If you really like tasty Bar-B- Que, it is worthwhile going out of your way to eat here. I have treated many friends to a meal here, and all of them really liked it, and many have made special trips to come back to eat there! You can phone in orders, or order online.

“Mouth-Watering Barbeque Mid-Western Style!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Jimmy's BBQ is a great place to dine when you are hankering for delicious barbeque! My favorite sandwich is half brisket, half turkey, on unbuttered Texas toast with potato salad, hot sauce, and a pickle. My husband usually orders beef and pork "tid bits" which is anything but small! His plate is piled high with assorted meats, and he chooses raw broccoli, carrots and cauliflower on the side with ranch dressing. Everything is hot and delicious, with a choice of either mild or hot sauce, which is often heated. The large dining room is graced with pictures of horses, cows and pigs, cowboy and cowgirl hats, boots spurs, rope, a rustic wooden floor and fencing throughout, separating tables into friendly groups.There are fun specials different days of the week, such as on Thursdays, you get a free beverage with each entree. Regular desserts on the menu include sweet potato pie, which is wonderful heated with whipped cream on top, lemon chess, and cheesecake. There is yummy ice cream in the Summer,with blueberry and cotton candy being our favorites.George will often buy a bucket of the cotton candy flavor when they have enough, and take iit home Everyone makes you feel welcome and wanting to come back again and again!
