This is a small home town restaurant. I have had several breakfasts here. The food is brought up fast and it is always good and hot. They give you plenty too. It is not fancy but just down home. The staff is great

We had breakfast here and for three people it was $28.78. We did not order any drinks or anything special. This is a Greek style restaurant

Greek owned. GREAT for breakfast. They make their own potatoes which are fantastic. Service with a smile, fast and clean. You will never be disappointed at a Greek owned diner and Jimmy's is one of the nicest I've been to. Will be back weekly.

Breakfast at Jimmy's is a long-standing tradition, with good reason: it's excellent. Service is warm and friendly and no-nonsense competent, and while the food is generally great, the potatoes are absolutely, positively the best I've ever had at any breakfast spot anywhere in the world!

I honestly don't know. I was visiting my daughter at school. I do know that is family owned, and I believe they have been there for quite awhile. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
