Jinkys offers small and large plates so if your hungry you can find a meal to eat no matter what. The restaurant is located two blocks from the beach so its a great location if you are staying downtown.

There is very little Jinky's doesn't have on their menu, the portions are massive and great value, service was fast and efficient. Red Velvet pancakes are to die for.

We went here for breakfast. We had excellent service but they weren't very busy. Our meals were excellent and we were happy overall. It was extremely expensive for breakfast.
