Food was great and so was the person that took my order. However the person who gave me my food left a lot to be desired. Asked for ketchup and hot sauce and you would have thought I asked them for the impossible. Just gave me a look cf total contempt (and yes I did say please and thank you). Think I will stick to the Mebane location at least everyone is nice to you there.

Quality of food has dropped steadily in past few months. Fish use to be whole pieces and very good. Now seems to be cheap broken pieces that don't taste the same. Banana pudding use to be excellent. Couldn't stand to finish it. I am done with them.

Good place! Has been here a long time, has great memories on the walls, nice and clean. Enjoyed the food and will be back. Basic hot dogs, hamburgers but very fresh!

Jimmys is always good. This Guess Road location was no let down. We do the chicken all Flavors. Burgers and dogs also good.

Great fish, great food. But is extremely annoying that every time we come to eat there’s a lady cleaning the floor with a very strong cleaner. Can somebody do something about that?

The food is always dank, and the woman at the cash register (forgot her name) is the sweetest! Love coming here.

Seriously good takeout food. Staff is pleasant and helpful in finding something you'll really enjoy. I haven't had chicken this melt-in-your-mouth tender unless I painstakingly made it at home. And my mom's catfish was equally hot and tender. My husband didn't want anything and then ended up eating my fries and half of my chicken. So you can definitely get away with sharing a meal. Nothing was greasy or cold, and it was at least 15 minutes home in a chilly car. Sorry I didn't take pictures, we ate it all immediately!

I love this place, Jimmy's has the best hotdogs and the only people that I know that have turkey hotdogs. Great service even better food! I knew they would last a very long time because they care about their customers and their food is the best!

Nice family ran hot dog and hamburger shop! Definitely noticed that the staff knew and remembered many of the regulars who came in for lunch. Nice to see a staff that was so friendly and knew their clientele so well. The atmosphere is cozy and the food is delicious. Definitely a spot that is worth visiting as the food is yummy and affordable.

If you got a taste for a old school hot dog, Jimmy's the place. Catfish pretty good too. Oh and don't forgot the lemonade.

I’ve been to this location several times. Its conveniently located, easy to get to. This location isn’t super huge although none of them are. This one is always busy. The service is fast and food comes out quick. I love their corndogs here at this location I don’t know what it is, but their corndogs here are great I tried them at their other location and I wasn’t a fan. The staff is friendly and helpful my first time at this location I told the cashier what I wanted and she told me the best way to get it so I got the best deal and I didn’t even know they had a meal for what I wanted. THEY ALSO HAVE FRIED OKRA!!! I love fried okra aside from King’s their okra is bomb they’re crispy and always hot. Definitely recommend this location over the others

We ordered the four piece catfish and eight piece wings. The food was served in large portions and more than expected, freshly fried to order. We had eat sides first allowing the freshly fried chicken and fish to cool. It was truly a step up compared to the ready made heated under the warming light chicken and biscuit locations across the street. I loved it and will stop in when visiting the area.

Hot dog was good, but the wings left a little to be desired. I'm going to give them a second chance to make a first impression because they were highly recommend.

A great old-school mix between a diner and a drive-in. Basic burgers, hot dogs, fried catfish, and wings. They served Nathan's All-Beef dogs for a slight upcharge from the standard Carolina red dog. Great prices two. A combo burger, hot dog, and fries is less than $8.

You can't say much for the decor, except it's an old Waffle House. Despite the diner type feel of my visit, the food actually wasn't that bad. Visiting Durham, North Carolina, to see an old friend, I stopped in about ten minutes before closing time. Ordering the Jimmy's Famous Hot Dog Combo, I would eat back at my hotel while catching up on e-mail, etc. 2 hot dogs "All the Way," french fries and a drink. A quick order - I had driven ten hours from South Florida and wasn't really paying attention to the menu. I didn't realize until later that they were turkey rather than beef. With that said, the dogs weren't bad. I met Billy - apparently one of the owners. Nice enough guy and we spoke for a few minutes while waiting on my order. When returning to my hotel a few moments later, I found that my combo order had 3 hot dogs rather than 2. Not a bad fast food experience. All the way hot dogs weren't bad and no complaint about the french fries either. Take out bag had napkins and other condiments. Soft drink was a pour your own after being handed a cup. Convenient location to major highways and plenty of hotels. I would visit again if ever returning to the area. Bill Lewis Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Best burger I ever ate! I shouldn't have found out about this place because that means I'll be driving a really long way to get the best burger because no other restaurant will ever measure up! Also they now take credit cards, apparently they only used to take cash.

Great food. But, the stud at the register with the short dreads is rude, and shouldn't deal with customers. *Update: I went for lunch and my experience was very pleasant. The food was great, as usual. I'll be back for dinner 😩❤

They have great catfish... surprisingly. I'm not a local but someone local put me on to it. Good desert options and sides. So far I've been happy with the service.
