I needed to eat in the middle of interviews with special dietary concerns. I was so happy to see that they were all respected and I was safe to eat when usually I avoid eating out for fear that lactose intolerance cannot be met. Delicious...food! My niece who is vegan recommended I try it so I figured it was safe. It was and I appreciated that.More

We've been going to Jimmy's for over 10yrs and until now I have had nothing but excellent food. Being from out of town, whenever we are in calgary we always try to make a stop. We went by yesterday for some beef donairs and what...a massive disappointment. Barley edible tasting way off, one of the worst donairs i've ever ate. We both knew we made a mistake as half way home from calgary our stomachs started turning. My wife was up all night making frequent trips to the bathroom coming out of both ends! Today I can't even think of eating a donnair without wanting to throw up. Super disappointed that Jimmy's went so far down hill and expensive. We are reporting the incident to the health inspector.More

We were in the mood for shawarma, and headed to Jimmy's. There was a bit of a Covid line-up, but once the order was placed, we were told to go back to our car, and the order would be delivered to us. The food was...fabulous, except they messed up the toppings on one of our shawarmas. And the person who was delivering the orders to the vehicles outside was not wearing gloves, and I witnessed her putting her fingers into her mouth, while carrying a bag of food to be delivered. We're in a pandemic, eh? Do better. Be aware.More

Great first experience the other night for this neighbourhood joint. Samples. Huge portions. Energetic & helpful service. You can feel how honest and authentic this place is. I will be coming back every week.

Ive been coming here for just over 8/9 years now and it hasnt changed. The quality of food is still fantastic, even if portion sizes have become smaller. When i was a child Jimmy and his employee's would tell me it was my lucky day...and give me a free candy bar or some ice cream. It always used to make my day. For me this is more then a restaurant, its a family, and a home.More

We live in the neighbourhood and have supported Jimmy and his crew for almost 20 years. Unfortunately during the Covid situation, we experienced much smaller portions than normal (significantly smaller!) for the same (or maybe even higher) prices. You have always been known for your...portions sizes !! Very disappointed!! 2 thumbs down!More

I’ve been going to Jimmy’s for years. I send everyone I know there because the food is out of this world. Today I went to get take out and I was sadly disappointed. The Donairs were smaller then usual. Half the meat and topping and...were stone cold. What happened? New owners? Dare I try again?😳More

From the time you step in until you leave hands full of delicious food you are catered to by people who know what they are talking about. The friendly staff offered to answer question and samples while we struggled to decide on whether we wanted...a donair or simosas. The beef donair did not disappoint and neither did the combo of beef and chicken that I had the time before. Will be back.More

I have been going here for years and they have remodeled the store somewhat from what it used to be. It is now easier to walk in the front door, give your order, walk down and pay, then get your order. Usually fast and seamless....Food is fresh and tasty but messy (in a good way), cooked right in front of you and they have all the ingredients you will need. No seating inside but a few tables outside in the summer. A great place to have some good food on a sunny afternoon.More
