“Can be good or bad, depending on who is working”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

The service here is generally pretty good, but I have noticed that the food depends on hw is on. Seems the food is much better (not a soupy mess with noodles thrown in), when the girl named Rebecca is working

“Perfect Pizza for Moving Day!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

Great pizza at Jim's! Totally satisfied very hungry movers - even my mother, who does not like pizza, had a second piece. So nice to have tasty pizza without having grease all over the box and your hands. Will definitely go back!

“Great Pizza + More!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

With a lot of chains in Vernon (Domino's, Pizza Hut, Panago Papa Murphy's etc.) Jim's Place is sometimes overlooked. Jim's Place is much more than your average pizza parlour. They offer so much more; I'd strongly consider taking a look at the broad menu. It can be cramped when you walk in (especially at rush hours) but this does not take away from the quality. You can order pizza, or just get some by the slice immediately. Mind you, these are VERY generous slices, at only $3 a piece. They usually have many slices available coming in several different topping combinations that cater to everyone. It can be pricey to order pizza, but their deals do not disappoint. They have great 2-for-1 deals. The only drawbacks
I can think of is getting pizza via delivery. Jim's is not a top-notch delivery service, though they get the job done. You should only really experience issues during rush hours. They offer online ordering as well although I personally have not taken this option so I cannot comment on it. John is a great guy and very friendly too may I add. So, what are you waiting for? Go give Jim's Place a shot!

“"Jim's Place" Has the BEST Pizza...also has "Pizza by the Slice" yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

Jim's Place is on 32nd. Street, half way up "Vernon Hospital Hill", going towards Kelowna.
There's a parking area and a small patio.....

When you walk in the door, you get the aroma of fresh Dough Cooking, and it's like heaven!
"Little Italy" comes to mind! We are - were amazed by the display of piping hot
"Pizza by the Slice", fesh out of the Oven.

It was hard to choose, because it ALL looked very good! Plus there was a wrapped 'to go' Donair and a "Meatball Calzone" Slice where you could see the larger Meatballs inside!

My husband chose the "Hot as it Gets" Slice...and it was "Rocket Fuel" spicy...Not 'stupid hot" just very spicy! He enjoyed it immensly!

I went for the "Jim's Special" Slice... It was stacked with toppings and flavour....delicious!
This place serves generous portions, and doesn't "cheap out" on Pizza Toppings...a refeshing change.

We both LOVED the Crust! Crunchy and flavourful on the outside, with a soft center...
NOT one of those spongy, doughy "Cake" style crusts...you know the one...ALL crust and NO topping.

We have also tried their full size "Meatball Calzone"...As good as it gets! Almost too much food! And not pricey... They also have a large selection of Sundaes, HUGE family Lasagna, Pop, Chicken Wings, Pizza Dips, and also Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Whole Wheat, and Thin Crust... Something for everybody, even Goat Cheese!

When you decide to try "Jim's" out, make sure you go hungry!

The Food doesn't taste greasy, because it isn't..... Next we intend to try a Two for One Pizza! No wait... the Lasagne... No wait, the Wings...help!!

“Ca-nay-jun, eh?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Dropped in around lunchtime to grab a slice. A couple of 'slice' possibilities were proffered - Pepperoni & Mushroom, or Ham & Pineapple. I opted for the Pepperoni. It was a large, solid slice of good-old-fashioned "Canadian style" pizza with a medium thick chewy crust. Quite substantially topped! And tasted just fine.

NOTE: This place is essentially just a 'pizza stand' - not a restaurant. So unless it's warm and sunny (and also not too busy) you will likely have to go elsewhere to eat your slice. Only a few tables on the veranda outside - and not many seats! That said, the service was fast and friendly, and all the condiments you would expect were available.
