This has become a semi-regular stop for us, which is surprising because we don't think of ourselves as big local barbecue fans (or, more accurately, we think of ourselves as barbecue snobs having eaten the best Oakland has to offer for nearly 40 years before moving here). But this simple diner is a definite must-do. I am particularly fond of... More

Two words - smoked bacon. You can make a meal out of it. I was tempted to but then I would have missed out on some good Bar B Que. My bride got the pork plate and I certainly wanted to but ended up trying the salmon plate. They were all good and I couldn't finish my plate - the... More

Hands down, Jimmy's BBQ has the best BBQ in the area. From the brisket, to the pulled pork and the spare ribs, all of it is so good. Not to mention, their BBQ sauce is the best! If you're looking for good BBQ, this is the place!

I could tell Jimmy’s was going to be a great BBQ joint just by the smell of the smoked BBQ that filled this place; It made my mouth water for some good BBQ. The only problem, it was a Saturday afternoon and they were already sold out of the ribs & pulled pork, so we ended up trying the Beef... More

There areas best barbeque hands down. Ribs, brisket, pulled pork, it's all awesome. The bbq bacon might be a bit salty, but it's a great appetizer. Three different BBQ sauces to try, they're all good. Can't go wrong here!

I had lunch there today with a group from my office and it was very tasty. The brisket was very moist and flavorful and the sides are obviously homemade and not simply after thoughts. I've had their food in the office several times but this was my first time at their restaurant. The service was prompt and friendly. Worth the... More

Food was terrible! It was my first and last visit. The Brisket and Cornbread were terribly dry, and the Pulled Pork was actually inedible. We left feeling hungry and robbed. Never Again!

I love BBQ and I'm pretty critical of establishments that make it. This place held up well. I got the pulled chicken platter. It was delicious, not one piece of fat on it. My sides were Mac and cheese and beans. Delicious. Other people at the table got sandwiches (pulled pork and pulled chicken). My one friend said the pulled... More

Was in the area on a short trip -- heard about this place -- and boy was it worth the detour! Deeeelishus! Lots of choices, perfectly done brisket, pulled pork, pulled chicken, good sides to warm a southern boy's heart!

Be sure to bring your appetites to Jimmy's. Everything is over the top in portions and quality. The Brisket, ribs, and pork are all dry rubbed, moist and fantastic. Our favorite sides are the Mac and Cheese, baked beans, and Cole slaw. Be ready for a treat
