After a morning chasing around bathroom cabinets and lawn furniture, i was hungry. Both the Chief of Staff and I had heard about Jimmy's so we decided to track it down and give it a try. It was about 1:30pm, so we missed whatever lunch rush there was.
The bar/restaurant was clean and well maintained. The decor was "Sports Bar-Modern" with a big chunk of patriotic memorabilia. There were a wide variety of seats, tables and booths in the bar and separate dining areas.
The CoS selected a Roast Beef on Weck and I got an open-faced roast beef sandwich. Alternate sides weren't a problem and service was prompt and courteous. The menu had a wide selection of dishes, mostly bar-food but some other entrees as well. The food was good. Not great but a solid good. Serving sizes were lunch appropriate. And the cost was reasonable. ($30 for two meals, a beer and tip) Most entrees were under $10.
Evidently the bar features live music on the weekends.
Parking is in a municipal lot about a block away. Jimmy's faces a side street rather than the Elden Street main drag. So it would be easy to miss if you didn't know exactly where you were going.
I get the feeling Jimmy's is trying to lock down a niche in the growing Herndon demographic. I wouldn't hesitate to go back or to recommend Jimmy's, but I wouldn't go out of my way to go back either.
