“Good burgers, great beer”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

This is a great place to stop in and grab a quick lunch or hoist a cold one. They offer a great line of burgers and the Amarillo beer is fabulous for somebody who likes a nice hoppy flavor. The servers are friendly, almost to the point of being boisterous, but they do a great job. Being greeted at the door with a bowl of peanuts is a an unusually nice touch. The requirement that shells be thrown on the floor is rustic to the point of being corny. I wouldn't hang out long due to the noise and wannabe good ole boy atmosphere, but they sure feed well.

“Down home local food”
Reviewed July 26, 2012 via mobile

Jimmy Mac's is a place that almost everybody would love. It's simple, straight forward, good food! It's laid back, friendly atmosphere makes everyone feel welcome and confortable. There's something (several something's) on the menu for everybody. The hot buttered rolls that they bring out when you set down are delicious! Everything that we've had here has been great.

“You like peanuts?”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Everywhere you step there are peanut shells. I understand that if you don't throw them on the floor, they will fine you and possibly have you arrested. It is a fun place, a little loud, but the food is excellent and the service has always been good. Besides, they have lots of peanuts by the door as you enter, and if you have to wait to be seated, you can fill up on them
