Went on a Sunday morning around 10. not to many people waiting. we waited about 10 minutes. it was not easy to get our name on the list. they'd come seat people but never asked for new names. they never stayed long enough to ask....But none the less a short wait. We ordered and asked for straws for our water, we never saw straws. I'm pretty green, but I want a straw. the server was adequate, he came around once in awhile. I ordered the garbage breakfast minus green peppers. my husband ordered the queso blanco burrito. He said his was really good, most burritos are bland, but this had good flavor. Mine was good, but it needed something wet, so I ordered a side of the queso, perfect addition. I also got a side of pancakes, they were good. I have some breakfast leftover for tomorrow. I downloaded their rewards app. you get a point for each entree, but you can only do one entree daily, so we ordered two but could only count one.. my husband would have to have the app as well. sorry we go to eat together and I feel that one app should be adequate. plus when you sign up for the app and click on specials, you have to sign up for email and then a pop up, no specials at this time, rewards app was a big disappointment. We'll be back for breakfast though cuz it was good food and reasonable price. my husband wanted to go to Americana for brunch. that would have been 55$, we spent $25 with a tip at Jimmy's. my picture didn't take, so I have none to offer darn it. Bathroom was clean, has real paper towels and a trash can next to the door.More

Popeye's Revenge omelette was tasty, but the hash browns were terribly soggy, even though we asked for them to be crispy, and the pancakes were doughy. Service was slow even though the restaurant wasn't full. We probably won't be back, because there was nothing special...here.More

It is a family oriented place that opens early but closes at 2 pm. They have eggs, ham, cheese, omelets, and delicious pancakes, french toast, and waffles. Some specialty flavors like cinnamon toast pancakes. Kids love it.

Just got thrown out of Jimmy’s Egg. Been going almost every weekend since they opened. Regardless of level of people inside or wait, we’ve been consistently told, if they’re seats open at the bar to help ourselves. We did today, with several open tables and...two parties waiting, and the hostess came and asked us to leave. Will never be backMore

No wonder The Waveland is always packed. It’s a million times better. You could seriously whip something up in your kitchen that would be much better, way cheaper and a ton faster.

We try to get to Jimmy’s Egg when we can on a weekend. We try to go before 9:30 or after 11:30 - and even then have a to wait a bit for a table at times. Coffee is great - and love that they...have flavored creamer at the tables. Omelets are tasty and great to have lower calorie options like egg whites or substitute and fresh fruit. Only open until 2:00. They do offer lunch items - but we’ve never tried them because breakfast is so good. Service is generally good, but can take a bit when they are crazy busy. Just a chance to enjoy more of the coffee. Lots of the same servers there all the time. Family friendly.More
