Most people who travel to buffalo are familiar with staples like Anchor Bar wings and beef on weck, but Jims Steakout is just as Buffalo as are wings and beef on weck. If you are looking to grab lunch or a snack at 2am you will never be disappointed. Go for the Jefferson Avenue Hoagie.

As the name suggests, steak sandwiches are the signature item at Jim's Steakout. They are available in 3 sizes and several varieties. The thinly sliced steak is grilled and served on a soft sub roll. I like the specialty with fried onions, lettuce, tomato and Jim's sauce. The best value is a combo #1 with the delicious fries and a... More

Third, nice size dining room that is bright, airy and clean. Fourth, prompt service at the counter. Fifth, excellent quality food at reasonable price. Sandwiches served... More

The food is pretty average for a sub shop. Perfect for anyone who is hungover! I recommend the stinger or chicken finger wrap.

This is the place to go if you are craving a stinger sub (steak and cheese plus chicken fingers!) or you are in need of some late nite food! Open till 5am!! Great hours for if you have a night out on the town and need somewhere to eat afterwards and want plenty of quick and tasty options!
