The service was poor server seemed to be having a bad day and actually snapped at my four year old. We took our food to go and left. The food was typical diner food but was tasty.

We love Jims Restaurant. They have home cooking meals and lots of variety. The best pecan pancakes I have ever had and the waitresses are always great. Food is always hot and fresh

I've eaten only breakfast at Jims but have always been satisfied. I'd prefer home fries to hash browns but that's a minor complaint.

Don't leave Austin without breakfast at Jims. Especially the chicken fried steak with the wonderful biscuits and gravy. Servers are courteous and helpful.

Anytime I'm visiting family in Austin, we go to Jim's. Good service, good food. The wait staff are always welcoming & accommodating. I was looking for a nail salon nearby. Of course, they knew just the place. We love the biscuits!

I've eaten breakfast at this Jim's twice in the past month. I like the atmosphere, the staff is friendly, & the prices are decent. However both times I've eaten there in the past month - ordering something different each time - the meal has made me sick. Like stomach cramps, rock in the gut, where's the pepto sick. And I...

We eat at Jim's almost every week, usually at breakfast. I like the "old timey / cafe " atmosphere and the wait staff is great. Their lunch specials, such as country fried pork chops, are always good, too. Many of their customers are "regulars" and are greeted by name. You can get breakfast any time they are open, too. They... More

Good home cooked type meals combined in a diner/restaurant/cafeteria setting. The food is really good, fresh, and plenty of it. Large menu, breakfast all day... Good family place.

Living nearby, we find Jims to be our home away from home for breakfast on the weekends. Great service, old time atmosphere, and just down to earth good food. The prices are very reasonable and the food is plenty and very well prepared. Never a complaint for this place except is does get busy and often has a sign in... More
