Seems that this restaurant is always full but they always manage to get you in quickly and before you know it, your food is in front of you. The service is always excellent and the food (breakfast or lunch) is always just as you ordered it.

This locally owned Greasy spoon is a lovely place to eat. Great price, average food, above average service, welcoming atmosphere. Also, delicious biscuits. Popular with sunday morning church crowds and late night party-ers

My wife and I had breakfast on Thursday, January 4 2016. Possibly the best coffee I have ever had! I had probably 5-6 refills. We both had omelettes and home fries. The food and the service were all good enough for us to visit again. There's a reason this restaurant has been in business for 40+ years. Try it out... More

Jimbo's has strange hours; open at 10:00 pm and open through lunch time but you'd be hard pressed to find a better place to eat breakfast food at 2:00 am. Good food cheap... doesn't get much better than that. Leave the kids at home in the middle of the night though; the party crowd can get a little loud but... More

We had breakfast here and it was very good. The prices are reasonable and the portions are just right. The service was also very good. They have quite an extensive menu so you will have no problem finding something you'd like.

The prices are reasonable. Waitresses were very efficient and friendly. One of us had breakfast, which was a good omelette, and the other had a club, also very good. Wouldn't hesitate to go there again.

Love Jimbos! Not fancy just a regular mom and pop Greek diner but the service is always friendly and quick and the food is always prepared as requested. Be honest I've only ever eaten breakfast food here whether it's morning noon or night because that's what I feel they do best.

I've been to Jimbo's a number of times. A waitress is offering coffee or water within about 30 seconds, taking an order within minutes, and delivering it in under five minutes. Water and coffee cups are never emptied, and the food is great. What's not to like!

Old fashioned diner style place that you really don't see any more. Food is simple, tasty and service is quick.
