Was in town on business and wanted a good breakfast. I saw that this had good reviews, and I was not disappointed at all! They have the biggest biscuits, and they are good too! They have other menu items as well, but I was just there for breakfast, and it was fantastic. The wait staff were very good and friendly.... More

Visit on 1/6. We were fortunate to be seated at the last available table. This is a very popular place and for a very good reason - delicious, well-prepared food! The hash browns were the best I have ever eaten anywhere and the fried eggs were perfectly cooked. Amy was the only server caring for a restaurant full of diners... More

Decided to try out Jimmy's for the Saturday buffet. I was not disappointed!! It was delicious, hot and fresh! They had fried eggs, scrambled eggs, a egg scramble (egg, tomato, bell pepper, bacon, sausage, onion, topped with cheese), Hashbrowns, waffles, pancakes, bacon, fresh biscuits, chocolate gravy, white gravy, fried bologna, and sausage!! Give it a try! You will love it!

First time customers @ Saturday breakfast buffet. Real (Not from a mix) cream gravy - delicious! Good hash browns. My husband and I have lived in many states, traveled in all 50 states, and eaten at hundreds of restaurants and never before have we encountered such perfectly cooked fried eggs; and on a buffet, no less. Incredible! Everything was tasty,... More

We're always looking for good local places to eat that are off the beaten path. We stopped at Jimmy's Diner for lunch as we were passing through. Everything we had was good: chili, fried pork chop, cornbread dressing, grilled chicken sandwich, black-eyed peas, and meat loaf. Some of which came from the lunch buffet offering. Worth a visit if you're... More
