Jimmy's BBQ Pit is as authentic as their taste as great as Texas logo suggests. We have had BBQ in Texas and Oklahoma, and his is fantastic. His BBQ ribs and beef are my favorite. I have also had the turkey and ham and they...More

Located downtown with western/cowboy decor, it is definitely unique. BBQ sandwiches and sides come in 3 sizes to fit your appetite. Definitely recommend the Sloppy Jimmy and potato salad. Very reasonably priced. Atmosphere was quiet which we appreciated.

The service, good, and ambiance is fantastic at Jimmy's. Been going only here for twars. The brisket is better than what I can do on my smoker and the potato salad and baked beans are all house made. You will not be disappointed eating here....More

I really enjoyed my meal. I ordered the 1/2 chicken and pork ribs. It was $11.99 and it was so much, I didn't even get to touch the chicken! Some of the sides are strange, vegetable medley are raw and there are no mashed potatoes!...More
