They sing for birthdays you get to throw peanuts on the floor and the pulled pork is out of this world. We've always had great service here it's almost as good as the margaritas.

Jimmy Mac's has a fun bar scene but the food is mediocre. The service is good as are the drinks. These are the stars. The food is not worth the effort. I would come for a drink and light snack but would not come here for a meal.

Average.average. oh so av-er-age. Service? Average Food? Average Bathroom? Floor was coated in grease. Is that how they get rid of the excess? Because there was plenty on my man's burger. Access? Average at best. Chances of me returning? Average at best. I did enjoy fat guy yelling at soccer game.

Sarah was our server and she was GREAT! Food was very good and reasonably priced. Plenty of food- very Texas Road housey but thought the food was better. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and it was a nice visit after a day of planes, trains and automobiles.

Jimmy Mac's was a second choice, after the sushi restaurant in the same mall refused to seat us in a booth, as the section was closed and it would be "inconvenient." We don't like to dine perched on hard, uncomfortable chairs - it does not make for an enjoyable dining experience. This was our only choice at that sushi place,... More

We liked to rolls they bring at the beginning but our main dish was also delicious. Tried some good beer there, too and the place is recommended. Don't understand the peanuts thing but that's OK.

We were a group of eight hungry people when we showed up. Ages 7 to 60. The kids loved throwing peanut shells on the floor. The rolls and honey butter were amazing and the wait staff just kept bringing them. The menu is family friendly and I recommend the BBQ.

We visted Jimmy Mac's during a visit to Seattle. My husband and I had bbq pulled pork and my in-laws had steak. It was a bit pricy but everything was delicious and there was a ton of it.

Good location in a strip mall, lots of traffic so don't be in a hurry. When we arrived you could smell Smokey BBQ. The floors where dirty and sticky, probably partly because you can eat bowls of peanuts and throw the shells on the floor, fixtures had dust on them, the place just seemed dirty. They had a specialty beer... More

We decided to visit this location with our scuba group, so a table of 8 was needed. We had no reservation, but they got us seated immediately without issue on a Saturday night at 6 p.m. Pretty impressive really. This is one of those restaurants where they throw the peanut shells on the floor, so don't go if you have... More
