This little cafe /restaurant located just off of Alton Road is very good. My friend and I stopped here for lunch and had the fresh trout special, although a little pricey for lunch at about $19, it was very good. The fish was cooked perfectly the vegetables sauteed very nicely as well and the avocado and tomato salad was very... More

Its a local place. ITs a small Deli like storefront. Do not expect ambience! There are hardly an seats, but you will really like what you order. Take it to go. The salads are so fresh. It is in a tiny strip mall, which is hard to park in.But every time I go by, my mouth waters a little! yumm

I was a bit skeptical at first but my wife was recommended to try this place. We were not disappointed. After living and enjoying local food for years in Puerto Rico, Jimmy'z Kitchen definitely nailed the right flavor for Beef Stew. The meat was so tender, juicy and the sauce was so flavorful that anyone would appreciate. I wouldn't call... More

Reasonable prices, but this is not the place for ambiance or anything close to it. You go there for good food only. There about 4 tables inside and two outside so the seating capacity is negligible. We always go there for the Grilled Churrasco, black beans and rice, and plantains, $17.95. Everything perfectly cooked and arrives at your table steaming... More

had the mofongo, and a coconut guava cookie. it's kind of a hole in the wall in a strip mall, but food is solid! Not a spot for a romantic dinner. & bring an appetite.

We found this place thanks to the "routard" guide (French)! You can't find the place if you don't know it, because not in the overcrowded area of Miami Beach! But it's really worth it! I discovered the Puerto Rican and I loved it! Just try the Mofongo (the speciality)! You won't be disappointed! Tasty food and substantial portion! And the... More

Jimmy’z Kitchen serves home-style foods but with ingredients that you don’t have at home, portions are large and their prices are reasonable. Food is ordered at the register, you pay in advance, and when ready, the food is taken to your table. The employees are always ready and attentive, and we recommend this place when you have little time to... More
