“First time at Jimmy's”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

Table of 5 for the first time at this restaurant. Staff was outstanding and service great with plenty of coffee always coming.
Eggs Benedict was the winner, I had home made corned beef hash and 3 eggs but hash had more potatoes than meat. Biscuits and gravy just okay, Biscuits not fluffy and appeared to be fried and flat. Breakfast quesadilla also a winner for one of our party.
Friendly folks and owner continued to ask if we were doing okay.

“Soup, salald and breakfast”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Want a good quick breakfast? Jimmy’s offers variety of choices, but I do like eggs benedict. They are prepared in the traditional fashion and I order with a side of hash browns. Delicious for $7.49. I also enjoy their homemade soups with chicken dumpling being a family favorite. Their salads are always made fresh, and are huge; you may need to take some home. The restaurant is a little older and outdated, but the quick service and decent food keep us coming back. When Jimmy is there he usually comes out and asks how everything is. My daughter also enjoys the short stack pancakes which is also too much for her to eat and reasonably priced. I hear they now serve excellent Bloody Mary’s and grapefruit martinis. We will keep coming back.

“Waitress thanked us for stopping in before we even ordered... Owner stopped by too.”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Service was excellent. - don't let the name throw you off. Owner must be Greek nice selection of traditional food along with Greek . Gyro was delicious and plenty to eat - husbands burger was standard nothing overly exciting. The French fries that came with the burger were the most perfect fries ever. We'll be back.

Very friendly staff with decent food and fair prices. Went for breakfast one morning - portion sizes were large and very filling. We will try lunch or dinner.

“Should be #1 of the 6 restaurants in Jackson”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

I have eaten at the #1 reviewed Jackson restaurant several times, and Jimmy's has them beat, hands down. Restaurant is cleaner, friendlier, and the food is far superior. Prices are reasonable and the portions are very ample. Kosta, the owner, table hops, to make sure everything is satisfactory. We eat breakfast there often, and dinner occasionally. Always satisfied.
