“Went for the sandwiches - they were out at 12:15 PM”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I tried a couple of different "favorites" for lunch on Labor Day, but both were closed. I happened to notice that Jimmy's was open. I had been meaning to try it, as much as anything else to see what a Vietnamese sandwich was. I got there around a quarter after noon. He was serving the very last sandwich he had for the day to the customer right before me. So - they're out of sandwiches at a sandwich place at noon?

Wound up getting a noodle bowl, which was pretty good, and a mango salad, which was - um, interesting. I guess I'll try them one more time to see if the sandwiches are good, but I wouldn't go back otherwise.

“Tasty sandwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Finally made it down to Jimmy's for a sandwich. Love Bahn Mi sandwiches and the place is open only in the summer. Got the chicken sandwich. The bread was great! The fillings were refreshing and tasty. I would have liked a little more filling, especially the veggies. Would also be nice if the veggies were julienned. My husband had the sandwich with a mix of different meat. He liked it. They have a nice selection of bottled beers. It would also be nice if they offered a little lagniappe specialty on the side, even if just a few chips. Outdoor seating is great when the weather is nice. Very open and airy atmosphere.

“Yuck! This place is horrible! I want my $ back! Please close down!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Not sure who is writing the wonderful reviews posted. Has to be friends and/or family of the owner. The Banh Mi Sandwiches we had were horrible! We tried the Chicken Banh Mi and the Traditional. One bite out of each and we threw both sandwiches away. Not our first time either eating Banh Mi Sandwiches. Just horrible and an embarrassment to our community. Stick to your "spa" nail shop you own next door. Leave the food business to people who know what their doing ie; The Soy House in Bellingham.
