I believe they are best burgers in town. Hand-spanked burgers (not frozen) with fresh toppings. They are not slow, but slower than fast food joints. If you are willing to spare a few minutes and have a tasty burger...this is the place

I would have given the 5 star, except for one problem: the only cheese available is American Cheese. If you want to be a serious burger, you MUST get out the cheddar! We met a friend there and enjoyed the atmosphere and super-friendly service!

Jimmy's is a wonderful example of a 50's style diner serving up freshly prepared burgers, fries and shakes. There are a wide variety of burgers to choose from to fit any taste, and the shakes are so thick you may need a spoon. With both indoor and outdoor seating it's easy to find somewhere to eat, although I usually take... More

Ate here for dinner on a one night stop on our way to California. The food is about average for a burger drive-in. The burgers and onion rings were hot, the fries were only warm. I got one onion ring that I couldn't even bite through it was so tough. Not a bad place, just pretty average. The fried pickles... More

There are usually a whole group of young girls working there and they all verbally respond when you leave a tip or or when you place your order. Fun place, good diner food and real thick shakes

When there are classic hot rod shows in town this place really rocks. At other times it is pretty quiet. Good selection of burgers, fries, shakes etc.and for the most part the food is good but not great.

We ate inside because it was hot out, but there are picnic tables outside under a canopy. You order at the counter and they bring food to the table. We all enjoyed our burgers, fried pickles and shakes. The small dining room was filled with locals which is always a good sign. Staff friendly, low prices, fast service.

Thought these burgers would be great but they're lacking. My first experience was loading my kids up in pj's and no shoes because they advertise a drive through. When I pulled up 2 girls standing in the drive through window told me it was closed because they didn't have the staff to do the counter and the drive through, yet... More

We were on a road trip and wanted to try something other than your normal I5 stops. This was a fun little spot! Friendly staff and clean restaurant. The food was good, we had a Little Jimmys Cheeseburger with fries and mac n cheese for the kids, and a Barbie Burger and Marilyn Monroe Burger for the adults. The kids... More
