Jim's is one of the few places I can count on consistently for a good burger. The wait staff is sub-par, and you'll usually be waiting awhile for your food, but the food is worth the wait every time. Very affordable, I can't seem to get a better burger under $10 anywhere in the area. Cool bar atmosphere and consistently... More

Boy-oh-boy but you better bring an appetite! Son-of-A-Gun but my plate was heaping with food! Excellent staff, excellent food! A nice clean atmosphere and just WOW. I had been here a few years back, well quite a few actually. On Secretary's day in the 90's. Then it changed to 10 Main. Diamond Jim's is back. Liked it then and love... More

Diamond Jims has the best burgers in town IMO. It's fairly noisy in the building, but that's because there are lots of people. Places that are busy with lots of customers are usually pretty good places, or nobody would go there. That said, the food is good, prices are very reasonable.

We were walking in downtown Midland and asked a local where the best burger place was, he pointed down the block to the busy patio. It was an excellent choice. Half pound burgers cooked your way, generous toppings, on a bun that wasn't soggy . Perrin Raspberry Blonde beer was Awesome. We had 2 cheese burgers and 2 frosty beers... More

I visit Diamond Jim's a couple of times a month (lunch, dinner and drinks). I can't say that I've ever had a bad meal or experience. The wait staff is very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere allows for conversation when meeting with friends or family. The menu has many "best sellers" and also many unique items that offers several diverse... More

We come here at least once per month because the food is delicious, cheap, and offered later than 9 pm. I love the Diamond Jim's salad with salmon! The veggie burger is tasty. The also have a nice salmon dinner. Wine prices are reasonable , and the selection is also pretty good. I don't pass up the chance to dine... More

I went here with some colleagues on a Sunday evening. The burgers which is what they are known for was wonderful, as were the fries with seasoning salt. The floors are tile however and the music was pretty loud so hard to hear conversations even among the 5 of us.

My book club was looking for a place with a semi private area for us to meet. Diamond Jim's has a small area in the back that we were able to use. The menu has a great selection and not your everyday affair, although that is available as well. The Cheese Triangles were large size and appear to be from... More

Stopped here for dinner on a Wednesday night. Service left a lot to be desired. We suggest the owner gets a handle on it or they will lose business. Bottom line, very slow. Otherwise the food is great and the prices are good.
