My wife and in-laws have learned to trust me to find great places to eat when we travel and this was one of the best. Visited the city for the weekend and this was the first restaurant I took them too. No one was disappointed. We came hungry...left full and took some home with us. I learned about Big Jim's... More

Had the spaghetti special with a couple of meatballs and a salad and couldn't finish it all and we are BIG eaters! It's been a few years since we were here before. Great food and great service!! If you... More

Not going to BS, we went here purely based on the DDD show. I love places like this, my wife has learned to trust me and try restaurants that look rough on the outside. We weren't disappointed! I had the Chicken Parm and my wife had the steak. Both cooked perfectly. Our server Tim was great. We had missed the... More

Got the idea from the FoodNetwork's show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. What a great choice. The outside is for sure the dives part, but the food and service inside is worth the visit. The corned beef sandwich was tender and seasoned just right. The steak hoagie with mushrooms, onions, lettuce, tomato and mayo is delicious as well. Both sandwiches have... More

I think this place reminds me of my grandpap. It has that grandpap smell....kind of soft, warm, a little pipe tobacco mixed with sweat and that funky grandpap smell. And just like grandpap, it's old, worn and torn with tons of love and fun. Went here based on the Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives recommendation. This would classify as our first... More

Stopped by for a late lunch. Great beer selection, menu had a wide variety- even several vegetarian options. Service was prompt and friendly. Will definitely return.

Visited Big Jims and ordered the Chicken Parm.with the salad . The portions are abundant but lack flavor . Had to season to taste . The chicken was very tender and you receive 2 pieces. The mozzarella has amazing pull and is delicious . The service is awesome. Triple D episode persuaded me to visit. Will I return next time... More
