I am pretty sure Jimmy's is one of the places that don't care about portions control (: Seriously though - HUGE donairs, loaded to top with meat and veggies, with fantastic sauces.

I just stopped in to grab a small combo donair (chicken and beef combined) and it was just what the doctor ordered! I haven't been here in a few years but it was delicious then and nothing has changed. The service was amazing as well, so nice and all smiles!

The day I discovered Jimmy's was one of the happiest days of my life. The day I discovered that Jimmy's delivers just about topped everything that is great with Calgary. The food is both authentic and fresh. The prices are amazing, and the employees are so wonderful.

Best food in Calgary! Super friendly, super efficient. The girl in the front always has a smile on her face.. I've seen a line up of 10 and more, she never gets overwhelmed or is in a rush.. very generous with their portions and the taste is excellent, I could it everyday for a year. 4 thumbs up!

What a pleasure to enjoy Jimmy A& A. Great food, personable experience. The place is not much to look at but the quality of the food sure makes up for the appearance. Donairs are real treat.
