“Neighborhood highlight: best corned beef hash”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

The folks at Jimmie T's make you feel at home instantly and the food will also make you happy you came. The cook and staff here have lots of fans clearly, so we were glad to come mid-morning on a weekday and find a booth available. I suspect if you come twice, they'll know your name and show you to "your" table. My husband had the corned beef hash and fried eggs - she makes the hash overnight in a slow cooker and stirs it up with little roasted red potatoes for your dining delight. Eggs perfectly cooked. I had huevos rancheros (but scrambled) with black beans and a tortilla. Lots of coffee, served cheerily by our very entertaining server. Folks chat back and forth - you feel transported to the good old days (when we didn't watch our cholesterol).

“Awesome local favorite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

Had brunch here with a friend who lives in the neighborhood and is a regular. It is a wonderful little hole in the wall. The staff are very friendly and accommodating!

“The Washington experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

We enjoyed breakfast at Jimmy T's the weekend after THanksgiving. We not only enjoyed the food and "diner atmosphere", but also had a lively chat with the owner. Everyone was super friendly and the service was fast and accurate. I eat gluten-free and the cook knew exactly what I could and could not have. Great little eatery!

“Our warm welcome to DC”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

We ate here on our first two mornings in DC, amid a government shutdown and something resembling a monsoon. Not the cheapest greasy spoon I've eaten at, but it more than makes up for it with tasty bacon, fun seasonal menu items (pumpkin pancakes, anyone?) and some of the friendliest, most accommodating staff I've met in a while (thanks, Kyle!). Cash only.

“A Washington experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

Jimmy T's is a local Washington experience. It is what could be called a 'greasy spoon'. The food is both simple (eggs, bacon, sausage, etc) and varied ( Huevos Rancheros, pumpkin pancakes, etc.) the services was friendly and interesting. Both the waiter and cook came by just to chat. One piece of French Toast, one egg and a piece of sausage wheel was $6. They have a variety of breakfast combos. Remember cash only. This is a very small restaurant with about ten tables and about six stools at the counter. Although I probably would travel across town for it but it is a good local breakfast stop before starting your work or tourist day.
