You get great food here and plenty of it! The breakfasts are lumberjack size and can fill the hungriest tummy. Highly recommend.

Our family of three at here for an average price. Being from the south BBQ is something we love and are still looking for the right place here in our new home. This was not bad but really reminded me of the chain shops of the south. Biggest problem is the food was all luke-warm when served. And there is... More

I love the selection they have for their sides and the BBQ is good...wish it wasn't so expensive though...they used to have a "special" on their menu that we loved to come for that was reasonably priced and was great portion sizes at a good price point...but then they took that away and coming there has become a lot more...

Jim Bob's is an order-at-the counter no frills BBQ restaurant which serves tasty food at a reasonable cost. All of us in our party of five enjoyed our choices. I had the brisket with sides of BBQ beans and potato salad. My wife enjoyed her bowl of chili. Jim Bob's is definitely worth checking out.

I was driving from Ashford to Forks and MapQuest sent me through a bunch of one-horse towns with nothing open (I left before 8:00 a.m.). I was so glad to see Jim Bob's. They have great breakfasts with pretty good coffee for WA (I'm a Dunkin' Donuts girl myself). You get a good meal for a pretty reasonable price.
