“Great Place to Stop for a Ponza Rotta”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2014

If you enjoy something different than your normal every day sandwich, try Jimmy's Grotto for a Ponza Rotta. These are like a pie crusted filled sandwiches with whatever you like. Try a meat lovers or veggie Ponza. It's located downtown Waukesha on Main St and open most nights til either midnight or 1am, with delivery too. Jimmy's Grotto has other options too such as pizza, dinners and more sandwiches but are known for Ponza's. If you want to order take out, it is best to call ahead of time so you don't have to wait. It's a scrawny little building which does have dine-in but most locals order carry out.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2014

Food is awesome, green pepper rings & ponza rottis....CS & delivery SUCKS! Always add 30-45 Minutes from promised delivery time.

“Gastromomic Delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2014

They have pizza's and Ponzarota's (spelling)! The Ponza's are Excellent! However, they are extremely filling AND becareful because all the cheese and fillings feel like they are clogging your arteries. We love them but only a few times a year. One word of warning, leave them in the wrapper and fold it back, or you WILL have a mess. Plate, fork, and knife work great too. A real treat.

“Bridal party must!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2014

For my cousins wedding, the bridal party was running around doing last minute craziness! Needless to say we got HUNGRY and I mean HUNGRY! Been going here for years with my family and I will continue every time I visit Wisconsin! PONZAS are the best, I even freeze them and take them back to TEXAS!!! That is how good they are! Fried mini tacos are great too and the fries!!!

“I like it...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Jimmy's Grotto is a "once in a while" type of place for our family. We have only had the pizza and the Ponza Rotta's, but both are delicious. The "once in a while" comes in because the Ponza Rotta's are huge, greasy and sooo good that I must eat it all. I have made the mistake of getting a Ponza Rotta for lunch and feel like I need a nap afterword.

Give it a try between diets... We like to carry out.
