Went here for supper tonight and it was an all around awesome experience. We were warmly greeted by a staff member from behind the counter when we walked in, our order was taken and we received more friendly service. As our orders were being prepared...More

I stopped in for a beef donair a week ago and it's been a couple years since I've been here so I wanted to grab a donair for old times sake. It was still the best donair I've ever had, tons of meat, sweet sauce...More

We have been visiting Jimmy's for the last 5 years and never ever have been disappointed with the flavorful chicken shawarma. They load it with meat and the garlic sauce is best. The staff always seems to be very happy serving and treat everyone well...More
