Our group found Jim's and loved this place. We had lunch and breakfast there during our football game weekend. Loved the food, wish we had Jim's back home in SC!

My friend and I went for breakfast. The system is odd but I guess it works for them. You grab a tray and order your food, wait for it to be cooked and pay at the end. I ordered an omelet with wheat toast and my friend ordered a Reuben. My toast came out before my omelette so when we... More

Ive been going here for about 20 years. It's a family deli run mainly by Jim and his dad Nick. From breakfast, though hot lunch selections to all day eating options this is GREAT. All fresh cooked, no short cuts, always a friendly smile and a welcome ...this is simply can't miss

It is very simple place with awesome food, good size portions and wallet friendly prices. There are daily specials and the cooks are very willing to switch up things!! Again nothing fancy BUT very good!! Highly recommend! If you are missing mom's home cooked food then this is your place!

great burgers & super-sized sandwiches served from a counter onto a lunch tray with sitting in booths. Texan Burger was super as was the Chicken Parm. Awesome mac & cheese. Generous portions of fries. My only two complaints are they handed me a water bottle ($1.75) when I asked for a glass of water & they have cheapo ketchup.

Jim's is the best - best omelettes, best burgers, best atmosphere, best staff. The people make the place, and are so friendly and welcoming. The place is always bustling and rightly so.

Technically this was in Medford,MA. Met our daughter and her boyfriend from NY here as they were down for a wedding. I had a yummy chocolate chip pancake and delicious perfectly made bacon. Long lines but it moves fast. great service and great food.

After seeing stellar review for Jim's, my boyfriend and I decided to try it out. We went on a Sunday around noon and the place was packed with a line wrapping around the entire deli. However, we only waited around 20min before sitting down with our food. I wasn't expecting a cafeteria style restaurant, but it seems to make things... More

I liked the hamburger, but I expected more after all the propaganda that my friends have made to me about this restaurant...
