Bimbos is an Old Taylor street like restaurant. Go traditional Italian food in a fun setting. Good quality at appropriate price. Can get crowded on weekends.

I used to love to eat here, but now the food is just average and not worth the prices. The service is hit or miss and the same with the food.

This is the place to go for an excellent steak or Italian dish. The service is always stellar and the bar service is an added bonus! I usually go for dinners, but I have heard great reviews on their lunches as well~

My first visit to Bimbo's and really enjoyed the food, service was great too. A local place where you are sure to meet someone you know. Worth the drive if you are not a local.

Hi, Robert. Usually, we go dressy casual. I have not noticed anyone there in shorts and a t-shirt but we usually go for dinner. I would feel free to go in nice jeans and a dress top and my husband wears Dockers slacks and... More
