Like all of the Jim's family of restaurants, this Jims is a great place to go to for a late night meal, breakfast, lunch... anytime. Every Jims is a safe haven.... they dont put up with any trouble makers. The restaurants are clean and the staff is knowledgeable and cordial. Pricing is always good. Good value all the time.

This is an old San Antonio chain. Open 24 hrs, food is acceptable, pies really great. We had chicken fried chicken and chicken fried steak with a piece of lemon pie. Bottomless drinks, and the wait staff were really great to everyone....even the couple of homeless guys handing around....they gave them a plate of food.....we don't think they charged them,...

This was our first time to Jim's and it couldn't have been a better experience. Our waiter Isaac made us feel at home. He was so kind and helpful. He even carved my strawberry into a rose. The food was great. We had fried mushrooms and onion rings to start which were tasty. The portions were big. I had the... More

I have eaten breakfast more times at Jim's than any other place than than home. I guess that just about tells the entire story but I cannot forget about the Frontier Burger. This Burger is hard to top. I suggest you bet the biscuits grilled and if you get a breakfast taco do the same. Shakes are not bad either....

Bad. Just bad. Not even cheap enough for how bad it was. Rolls were brick hard rolls. Mashed potatoes were runny. The chicken fried steak wasn't bad. Note to staff: if I ask for cream gravy on my steak, I probably want cream gravy on my taters; not brown.

Great biscuits! OK pancakes. Awful coffee. It's an SA staple and must try. My family loves this place.

We ate here forThanksgiving. Had planned to eat at Earl Ablesfor about 24 dollars a plate but was to long of a wait, figured a good burger would work. Jim's had a turkey dinner special for less than 9 buck that could not have been better. Lots of food and had great flavor. Went back the next day for burgers... More

I understood but she brought my food out very quickly and... More

Arrived at 1am on a Friday night. After 2 requests over 15-20 minutes we finally had a server visit our table for the first time. They were out of all but 2-3 sides for our meals and despite the place being mostly empty took about 30 minutes to get us our food. Server was nice enough but definitely would have... More
