This is the real deal. Great burgers home made fries and other great menu items. Jimmy is always ready to serve and takes a minute to chat. The chilli burger special is amazing! Not fancy just great Mom and Pop food!

This was a very pleasant surprise - for a small burger joint, they serve up big taste and portions. I'm a burger enthusiast, and the Fat Boy definitely satisfies. One of the best tasting burgers around. Not a fancy, hipster burger (though those are pretty good sometimes too) - this is the big, messy kind. Huge side of fries too.... More

Very busy when we stopped in, making parking a challenge. Guess everyone loves their fat boys! The food Is pretty awesome and the servings are generous. Not a huge restaurant for dining in, but there's also a few tables outside. A garbage can outside would surely get used. Popular with the locals. Can see why - the burgers are incredible!

Fat Boy burger was excellent. Fries were excellent. Service was fast and it's not a fast food restaurant. Great place to go. If I am ever in this part of the country I will gladly go again and again.

Jimmy`s burgers are large and delicious. Fatboys are large enough to share and with chili and a hint of garlic they are amazing. Not overburdened with toppings you can almost eat them with one hand and no worry about wearing white they just don`t drip.The fries are home cut and perfectly crisp.He fills out the menu with salad subs and...

Jimmy's serves up legendary burgers, called Fat Boys. When you crave a burger and fries it is the place in town to satisfy. Portions are big enough to share, or to feed a teenager. Fries are thick cut and delicious. Greek salad is on the menu too. Service is quick, prices fair for the quality.Yummy!

Honestly lots of places will say they have the best burger in town. But Jimmy's sub really does. The fat boys are amazing. They serve lots of other foods as well but when we go we usually get fat boys, you can't go wrong, they are perfect everytime.

Jimmy is always serving up the best burgers in Manitoba. Practically everything is homemade by Jimmy and his portions are very generous indeed. Great food & great family restaurant. He now closes in the summer for holidays to Greece. He'll be open by the end of August.
