Have been eating here for year. Chicken tacos are to die for as well as beef tacos. Beyond them the rest of the menu is average or less. We use to drive all the way to Reno or Sacramento just for the tacos. YUMMMMMM

First time trying Jimboys Tacos. Not bad. I got the beef enchilada and taco combinations plate. The beans and rice were good and the red sauce on the enchilada was very good. The Tacos are good and cheap. The service was fast and the restaurant was kept clean. Quick cheap eats.

I tried this place last Friday, February 3, 2017. I had 3 shredded beef tacos, a shredded beef enchilada, and a drink, which cost me $17 and change (ouch!), which I thought was a bit expensive for what I had ordered. The tacos were unusual, as the soft corn tortilla "shell" was coated in a grated/powdered cheese somewhat like Parmesan.... More

Steve loves Jimboy's Tacos. The place is clean; the staff is friendly; the food is hot and tasty! Prices are easy on the pocket. Better than Taco Bell. Place has daily specials. When we were there, we saw a couple police cars in the drive thru

I wrote a review on this Jimboys two years ago. The tacos with Parmesan cheese on the outside,burritos and nachos were still amazing. Jim boy's must have listened because they have since remodeled and made the dining area larger.A very nice touch,but the taco are what brings me back!!!

On a visit to Reno and out looking for a place to eat outside the downtown area, Saw JimBoy's Taco and the cars outside and thought 'Ah, must be good.' We weren't wrong! Had beef tacos - lovely fried shell soft enough to bend but not break when you bit into it, enough meet and cheese to fill. Very tasty!... More

When in Reno, we always stop by Jimboy's for Tacos. They are very different than Taco Bell, or any other taco place. Go try it, you will not be disappointed.

Service was not good. Screwed up my order to start. Have to be honest, I did not expect anything good from this place but a friend who knows my love tacos insists I try it. Well I confess a darn good taco. I think them over priced but dang good taste and I will be back. Had the carne asada... More
