“Best hotdogs in town.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Jimmys is a bit run down but despite the old decor it's the go to place for a great tasting hotdog. They are budget friendly and the staff usually on top of things.

Jimmy's has been around as long as I have and the quality has remained the same.
Same crunch to the hotdog. great chili .
A Hazleton tradition and a must stop.

“People remember the nostalgia and what this once was!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

Is it possible to give anything less than Terrible. This place really has gone down hill.
Seriously this place is that awful. There was a time back in the day, when this was the go to spot and the food was edible. Well this isn't 1997. I think too many people are hung up on nostalgia and are remembering what it used to be. This place used to have amazing food, staff, and just everything about it was amazing. I guess the original staff either got older or just up and left. What it was replaced with was just care free people.

The food has become stale and flavorless. The chilli for the chill dogs is dry and has no kick to it. Hot dogs do taste pre boiled and then tossed on the grill to cook for a few seconds. Makes them taste really weird that way. Burgers are very small and not very good. The fries are cold but that wasn't a surprise with one waitress and the place packed for lunch.

Overall i haven't been impressed. Go to your local gas station, or for the same price go to the grocery store and buy a pack of hot dogs.

This place may be one of the last businesses of hazleton but as with the rest of them that have vanished .... this one should take a hint and become another nostalgic memory.

“Best Chili Dogs In Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Whenever we are hungry for a hot dog, we go to Jimmy's Quick Lunch. They have a reputation for the best Chili Dogs in town for a reason - because it's true. They have a vast menu to choose from, but my favorite is the Chili Dog. Try it you'll agree.

“Jimmys Quick Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Not just a hot dog joint. Jimmy's takes you back in time (era 1950's -1960's) Besides hot dogs, which are his fame and fortune, Jimmy's offers sandwiches, salads and breakfast fare. All at drop bottom prices
