We go here pretty often. We love the food and the people who work there. You can get breakfast all day. They have great dinner specials, and their pies are so good. Especially the coconut cream pie.

This review is a bit one sided. Every time I come in for lunch or dinner, I order the Turkey Club. That's a favorite sandwich of mine. It's a traditional sandwich, three layers. Usually comes with a side of steak fries, a pickle spear and a little up of coleslaw. Love it. This is a full service diner and they... More

It's a family run type of restaurant. They have daily specials and the pies are awesome. You can even buy a complete pie to go. The banana cream is very good. Get there early because they do run out of pies.

My girlfriend and I have dined at Jimmy's at least half a dozen times over the course of a year. Until our last visit today I would have had nothing but positive things to say. What compelled me to write this review was our interaction with the waitress and the events that transpired after my girlfriend found a dead fly... More
