Every town and city has a place where you can get a meal like your grandma (the one that was the great cook!) used to serve the family on Sunday for the family lunch. Jimbo's is one of those places. Need I say more? Efcharistó,...More

The food, drinks, and service are great! The price is modest as well, ~$8-10 for just me. I really like this place. Been there about 3-4 times so far.

Heart stopping? Maybe...but every once in a while that’s ok. Everything is great and it is no frills. Get there early (before 8:30am) and you shouldn’t have a problem getting a table.

It's cheap diner food at it's worst. The service was slow, the syrup wasn't real (which is a big flaw at a breakfast place). If you want diner food in Wilmington try Sawmill by Monkey Junction instead.

I've been here a couple times (I'm local) and it's hit or miss. Went today for breakfast and it was downright bad. As in I won't go back. Service was mediocre (that was new, it's usually very good) and the food was bland and just...More

This place is a great spot for breakfast. A gem in Wilmington, that’s lasted the test of time. Have made many visits, just about every weekend, and have never left hungry. Have tried multiple items on the menu, and have no been disappointed. Waitresses are...More

When you want a true all time breakfast from 10 PM to 2 PM in the afternoon there is only one place to go in Wilmington, Jimbo’s. The waitstaff will know who you are after a few visits and are always accommodating and efficient. The...More
