“Good food, Great service, and you don't have to yell to be heard”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Saturday morning of opening weekend of the Balloon Fiesta, my bride and our friends stopped into Jimmy's for a late breakfast. Got seated quickly in spite of the rush, and all had very tasty breakfast fare. Entrees ranged from a short-stack (very tasty and fluffy) to New Mexican breakfast favorites. All declared this late breakfast a resounding success!

Wait staff was attentive without hovering, Manager checked on us, bright and air-ish.

Good food, Good service, Good folks.

Eat there.

“Neighborhood cafe with good food, great service, and relaxed atmosphere.”
Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

Located across from Health South, Jimmy's Cafe was a surprise find. They always seem to be nearly full with return customers. The service has been friendly and accommodating and the food great. I kept coming back for their huevos rancheros.

“Good, Fresh, Friendly.”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

I was pleasantly surprised with this place for lunch. The salad was great. My daughters breakfast plate was good. They have a good variety on the menu. It is a good place for lunch during the work week.

“No discount if your is Jimmy”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Unfortunately there seems to be no discount if your name is Jimmy, though the walls are filled with Jims, Jimmys, and Jameses (first and last names). The food is great, the green chile has just the right heat, variety is good, servings are adequate (or even a little large), service is good too. Can get breakfast all day. Restaurant was fairly full even though was there at an off time. The restaurant is in a light industrial area strip mall, but it was worth the find!
