I am pretty sure Jimmy's is one of the places that don't care about portions control (: Seriously though - HUGE donairs, loaded to top with meat and veggies, with fantastic sauces. Friendly staff makes it even better - nice people to chat with while your order is prepared (which is LIGHTING fast) Load up on TUMs though - you... More

I just stopped in to grab a small combo donair (chicken and beef combined) and it was just what the doctor ordered! I haven't been here in a few years but it was delicious then and nothing has changed. The service was amazing as well, so nice and all smiles!

If you love Donairs Jimmy A&A will not disappoint you. I also recommend the Samosas they were very good. This location also has a small shop with lots of good things.

The day I discovered Jimmy's was one of the happiest days of my life. The day I discovered that Jimmy's delivers just about topped everything that is great with Calgary. The food is both authentic and fresh. The prices are amazing, and the employees are so wonderful.

Best food in Calgary! Super friendly, super efficient. The girl in the front always has a smile on her face.. I've seen a line up of 10 and more, she never gets overwhelmed or is in a rush.. very generous with their portions and the taste is excellent, I could it everyday for a year. 4 thumbs up!

What a pleasure to enjoy Jimmy A& A. Great food, personable experience. The place is not much to look at but the quality of the food sure makes up for the appearance. Donairs are real treat.

Authentic, delicious, piping hot! Not only does Jimmy's serve amazing Shwarmas, but the service is excellent. Eat in or take out! There is an outdoor patio, or an eating space upstairs. Do not be discouraged by the LONG line ups. That just shows you how good the food is! The service is fast. Can you tell we love this place?!... More

I have been going here for years. Whenever I enter the place, I feel like I've stepped into a loud family get together but am always welcome. It's almost always busy; the food is delicious. I only get the chicken shawarma salad due to a gluten allergy, but it is always good. They also offer many other home made deli... More

Still good. No need to order a large! Generous, fresh and tasty shawarma served by people who care. This is a happy place. The food is good and it can get quite busy at times. A good select of Mediterranean deli items. Nice vegetarian choices. And you can stock up on Sheesha supplies at the same time! There Are some... More
