Many of the wait staff have been here for years and that is probably true of the kitchen as well. Although you might have to wait for a table on the weekends, it usually... More

Our family went to Jim's to celebrate pancake day and Mardi Gras. Being able to order anything on the menu in the evening is a nice plus when you're trying to do something just a little different or special. The food service was quick.

Like many people, our weekend routine includes breakfast at Jim's. Sometimes there is a wait, but they move people through. Food is consistent and good.

This place has been around a while, and unlike Dennys, who has corporate guidelines, which specify a face lift once in a while, Jims has not changed appearances for many years. The food, however is good, and they do change the Menu from time to time. Service is good as well. Jims has the potential, to be one of those... More

A long time diner restaurant in Austin. Good comfort food and an excellent all day breakfast menu. Very reasonably priced. Consistently good service and good food. A good late night drop in spot after a night of too much....whatever.

Good service, ample portions, and the usual, but good, diner fare. Occasional specials and kids-eat-free nights add to the quality of the restaurant. Breakfast anytime! It's hard to beat for comfort food.
