“A good place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Jim's Restaurants have been around San Antonio for half a century or more and there are quite a few in the city. We eat here whenever we are passing through. Whether it's breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you can always get a good meal at this restaurant at a moderate price.

“Local institution”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Local institution - that's the way this place was described to me before we got there and I can see why. Generous portions, friendly service and reasonable prices. Great burgers, soup, sandwiches.

“True diner style food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Came here after finding that the 410 Diner didn't serve breakfast and what a find! Although the median age of the customers appeared to be 80, my wife and I enjoyed a brilliant, tasty hot and efficiently served breakfast and it was a pleasure to tip. Would definitely recommend and come back again when next in San Antonio.

“A Solid Traditional Texas Diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

Jim's has been around since the late 1940s. The owner Jim Hasslocher is still around and visits his local restaurants.
We hadn't been to Jim's in many years, but we have eaten in almost all his locations including Austin.
This is the local version of a diner. Good solid food at fair prices and service with a smile.
We stopped by for lunch on a Sunday and it was busy. I ordered the onion rings to start. They are hand-battered, and that is a good thing, because so many places serve prefrozen rings from a distributor.
We had the chicken fried chicken which was moist and tasty, with crisp breading. The coleslaw
was yummy and the canned green beans were OK.
The Chicken Fried Steak was just crispy enough and the cream gravy made it just right. Our rolls were a bit wimpy. The do serve real butter but you do have to ask.
My mashed potatoes were tasty as well as the coleslaw. Our server was very friendly and helpful.
