It was very good. Tastes like real meat. Made to order. The staff was very nice. My son loved the hot dog.

The food is always amazing here! It had been awhile since I last visited and I didn't know they now have BBQ and patty melts! The double patty melt was excellent!

Pretty good. Every time I go there, I order something different. So far, I am satisfied with their menu.

This place is pretty good, and for the price amazing. Just a nice cheeseburger, and crinkle fries. I eat here once every other week and the fries were always fresh.

This is a great place for NC style hot dogs, but not a place I want to find myself eating. I'll feel terrible later. But when you have that cheap hot dog craving, this place is excellent.

I enjoyed the great customer service. I tried this restaurant for the first time and loved it. The beef hot dogs are amazing.

Great place to get hot dogs, burgers, chicken, wings, barbecue, and, get this, catfish!! I love places like Jimmy's, kinda unassuming from the outside and great food served inside! The staff is very friendly and helpful, helping first time customers decide what they may want. Jimmy's served several kinda of hot dogs, beef, pork, Nathan's, which will satisfy anything cravings. I got the #1 combo, two hot dogs, "all the way" and was not disappointed. The fries and great and expertly cooked. I heard the catfish was really good. However, Jimmy's being "famous" for hot dogs I was hesitant to get it. I did have a chance to try the catfish and just say I will get catfish the next time I visit Jimmy's. This is a must-go place. I will be back!

Food was good. I ordered the catfish platter with slaw and tartar. The catfish was fried very well and the slaw was very simple. I did not like the tartar sauce however. Also order the chicken wings platter which were also very tasty .

Their main thing is pretty decent (I get mine without slaw -- chili, mustard, and onions is plenty!) but that's pretty much all they do. Fries are crinkle cut and nice and crispy.

Best fish for sit down meal OR fast food. Succulent, flaky and hot fish denials to perfection. Fantastic.

This place is ALWAYS on point. I went for hotdogs...and never got any. When I walked in, a patron said get the catfish, it melts in your mouth. I said I would but I called BS in my head. I wish I would run into that man again because he was RIGHT. I don't know what kind of sorcery they have going on in that kitchen, which clearly used it to be a Waffle House, but I love it. The sweet tea is great, the fish is great, the cakes are great and the pricing is GREAT! If I could add an extra star I would. The staff is friendly and reminds me of family cooking for family.

Great catfish, fantastic wings, good hotdogs, and pretty good french fries. They use Nathan's hotdogs, so the quality is good. The Coke in the fountain machine looked a little iffy, but the Fanta was fine. Staff is friendly and efficient. If not for the fountain drinks, I would've given this a 5 star

First timer here, but definitely won't be my last. Food was awesome! The fries were delicious. I got the double cheese burger with mustard and pickles, omg, it was amazing!! Fed 3 adults and 2 children, got milkshakes and still only paid around $30. Awesome place, awesome food! Will definitely come back next time we're in Durham.

Jimmy's has been instrumental in getting us through COVID19. I've picked up their delicious food weekly in an effort to help an older relative feel some sense of normalcy. The compassionate head waitresses the wonderful cook, and everyone else has provided phenomenal service. Jimmy's is to be commended. I love the catfish.

The food is prepared as soon as it is ordered. I especially like the fried okra. I always end up with more than I can eat because the portions are very generous. For the money, it is a great value.

A fun local chain that I'd recommend. If you were going out for fast food consider here instead for both a local business, great food (for that category) and a nice eat in area as well. They have a statue in the entryway that's fun for kids but also classic sodas in bottles like Dr Pepper

First time eating here and it was sooo good!! Everything was cooked to order and you could taste the freshness in the ingredients they use. All of the staff were super friendly as well! My husband is working in the area and staying at the hotel nearby so he will definitely be back! 😊😊😊

The service here is great. The food came out looking exactly like its prepared in the advertisement photos. Their famous dog was honestly one of the best hot dogs I think I've had. Also tried the cheeseburger and fries. The fries are somehow sweet, rather than salty, so that threw us for a loop but they were still good. Prices are very low for the amount of food, would return.

This is what you should do: get a drink and the large bacon ranch fries. It comes with a pool of ranch dressing to dive your fries into. There is already ranch all over the fries. And bacon. It is warm and people ask where I got it from. The burgers are okay. I like that they are sloppy. Bacon ranch fries are my favorite lunch food.

Jimmy's is the place for great burgers, hot dogs and fries. Onion rings are a great add on. This is grill food at it's best. Quick in and out.
