Jim's has been in town for many years. When Jim and his wife ran it they offered good food and service. Then they sold out and the business went downhill. About a year ago the family took it back over and it was very good, at least at first. Now the family seems to be less involved, the food quality... More

Took the family there after our granddaughters field hockey game at Windsor high school. We all ordered various grinders. We had half grinders that were very large and good. The chicken parm was excellent. Prices are very reasonable.

It was getting late and I was tired. The flyers were in the hotel lobby so I ordered some wings and a grilled chicken salad for delivery to the hotel. The service was pretty quick, the wings were tasty, the salad was big. I was able to munch on it for a couple of days. The chicken was a bit... More

Original owners are back and the pizza is back on top again! I would also recommend trying other italian dishes, I have never been disappointed. Friendly atmosphere and a nice staff,... More

If you like food from the 1950's go here. Ugh! You know the kind of food that is breaded, fried, and covered on sauce - greasy and tasteless. There were many people who were picking up pizzas..... maybe their pizza is better. If you need gluten-free give this place a wide berth. My husband said his fried fish wasn't too... More

The food can be quite good but not as consistently good as when the family took the business back over. They had been having 'Greek night' on Tuesdays and offered some great selections but that has been stopped. Prices are reasonable and a good family atmosphere.

The original owner is back and in the kitchen. How often, I don't know, but when he is there the Greek specialties are wonderful and the regular menu as well. I hope his customer level grows as the word gets out that he is back. Service was good, friendly.
