Quantity over quality these days.... I feel like the portions are massive, but not as good quality. Always had a solid donair, but there's competition now

We stopped here after we found it on trip advisor. We both had medium chicken donairs and they were huge and delicious. Outstanding customer service. They offered us samples as we had never been there. Picked up baklava for a party and it was a big hit as well. We'll be back!

Wow! Do not go in this place if you love Mediterranean food! I was in shawarma heaven and there were olives everywhere, yum! Great store to visit to get things to go or stay. Delicious food and lots of choices. Friendly staff! A must visit if you are in Calgary.

Great variety of Mediterranean food. Their pitas are so fresh and are wonderful with their chicken. Great service as well, I would highly recommend.

I happened to be in the neighbourhood and smelled something good in the air. Went in, offered some samples and bought a chicken donair and food for dinner. The donair was very good; loving the chicken and spices. Had for dinner the kibbi ball, spinach and beef fatyre , 6-pack dolmatas, tabouli and a chicken empanada. For two of us,... More

I am pretty sure Jimmy's is one of the places that don't care about portions control (: Seriously though - HUGE donairs, loaded to top with meat and veggies, with fantastic sauces. Friendly staff makes it even better - nice people to chat with while your order is prepared (which is LIGHTING fast) Load up on TUMs though - you... More

I just stopped in to grab a small combo donair (chicken and beef combined) and it was just what the doctor ordered! I haven't been here in a few years but it was delicious then and nothing has changed. The service was amazing as well, so nice and all smiles!
