“THE place for Burger, Fries and a Shake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Jimmy's name says it all. It is an old fashioned (of sorts) drive in. This is a great place, especially during the late spring through early fall. That is mainly due to the lack of indoor seating. But of course! It is a drive-in. They have plentiful outdoor seating on E St.

The center piece of the menu is the Hamburger. Probably the best in town. There may be some that are equal but none that are better (Piper Drive-In R.I.P.). You can get absolutely everything and anything on your burger.

They also have about the best milkshakes in town. Heavy, thick, rich and in about 20 flavors.

The price is pretty average at about $7.00.

A great benefit about eating at Jimmy's is the opportunity to view classic cars and hot rods. This is the place where these folks go and hang out in the summer so be on the look out.

“Great Old-fashioned Burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Wonderful selection of burgers and good value for the money. Minimal inside seating - lots of picnic tables outside. On a nice evening, it's a lot of fun to have dinner delivered to your table and eating outside.

“Best Burgers in Grants Pass”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

This place has fantastic food! There are a variety of burgers, and my favorite is the Marilyn Monroe--with grilled pineapple. Mmmmm. Shakes are thick, deliciously calorie-laden, and available in many flavors. We took our German exchange student here for a taste of authentic America.

“Pretty good burger”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We are local and eat here about once a month. The food is always very good and the waitresses are always very friendly. I think that the place could be a REAL classic if there was a little more work done on the decorations.
