After years living in Springfield, I finally tried this place. I'd thought of it as kind of dumpy, but it looks like they cleaned the place up. We have been comparing breakfast spots in Springfield, and the comparison of Charlie Parkers to Jungle Jims wasn't...More

My family and I go there often. The food is tasty and inexpensive and the staff treat us great. We especially love Teresa. Jungle is a great guy. Always goes above and beyond for the kids.
