“Great stop for motorcycles.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

The ride through the Hocking Hills to get here is part of the adventure. They do have cold beer and great hamburgers. It is a nice place to stop and refresh before you head back out to your next destination. Do not pass this one up as this place is famous here in Ohio, parts of West Virginia and Kentucky for bikers of all types as a destination motorcycle ride. Note I put excellent for food but remember it is a hamburger joint, but a hamburger you will not soon forget. I believe they do have a grilled chicken sandwich. Don't forget to check out their tee shirts.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

I was in the Hocking Hills area, sadly not on the motorcycle, and decided to stop in and give Jimbo's a try for lunch. I had the Jimbo burger and some onion rings. The burger was tasty and more than enough to eat. I ate inside and the wait staff was very attentive. Not much in the way of ambiance even for a bar. Plastic chairs and tables gave the place a kind of cold sterile feeling.

This little bar had a great atmosphere and had a wide variety of patrons. We visisted in June so a lot of bikes stopped in, food was typical bar food but very good and freindly staff.

“Not your regular bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

I don't go to bars, except this one, and I go there for the food. Joy, the owner, is the chef and she is serious about feeding people. Portions are large. Try the pulled pork if they have it, it's amazing! Joy makes it herself. The staff is friendly, smoking is outside at the picnic tables under an awning, the bar is very clean and there are tv screens on the walls for entertainment. Joy's husband, "Jimbo", passed away last year and he was the main connection to the customers, always upbeat, remembered your name. Joy and her staff are carrying on the business. Bikers love this place on the weekends, but us "regular folk" are just as welcome. It is seldom rowdy.
