Really good food & huge portions so you can share fries. Some good specials during the week. We’ve eaten inside and also picked up to go orders. Food is ready quickly & orders are always correct. Nice kids working too.

We’ve gotten some great burgers & ice cream here all season. Usually taken to go while working on yard projects. Really nice variety of foods with chicken, burgers & some specials during the week. Nice selection of ice cream. Good parking, pleasant staff, quick service....I’d recommend Jimmys to everyone.More

Might be the best burger I have ever had. Fresh, in house baked buns and fresh hand pressed patties. So delicious. Plus, the Cheese Curds were the best I ever had in Wisconsin. Local white cheddar. Yummy! Highly recommend this place.

I've stopped at Jimmy's many times and have eaten there about a half a dozen times. He serves ice cream too but I think he charges too much

This is a good place to stop for a malt or shake or ice cream. Everything is custom made while you wait. Typical burgers and fries kind of food too.

Great burger, fresh toasted bun. Hand made patty, fresh veggies! Cheese curds were perfect. Pretty wide selection for all tastes and they have plenty of ice cream.

It was alright. The service could be better and the indoors could be cleaner. Not very friendly. I don't know if I would go back.

I'm a Frederic resident and love Jimmy ' s Drive In. The service is certainly the best in the town by far. The food is fast and always fresh, I've never waited longer than 10-12 minutes for the food with our family of five. The...cheese curds are amazing, my husband loves the chocolate malts, the children especially like the burgers and chicken wraps. After a long winter we are always excited to see them open up for the first time this year. We visit the drive in on a weekly basis and have never had bad service once in the three years they've been open. Jimmy the owner is always working the counter and is very personable. He strives for good service and good food and it has certainly paid off!More

We had our first visit to Jimmy's last week. I immediately felt guilty for not stopping in sooner. First off, "Drive-In" is kind of a misleading category for this joint. There are outdoor picnic tables and it appears that there may be car service, but...there is also plenty of space indoors. Inside, there is a Parrothead/Margaritaville sort of vibe going on. You place your order at the counter, and as the previous poster said, they only take cash for payments. Jimmy was our server, and he was very friendly and humorous. He even offered to refill our sodas for us while we were waiting for our to-go order. The prices are very reasonable and the food -- well, that was outstanding! The portions are good sized and you can tell that this guy's food is his art. I can't be certain, but I think the tartar sauce on the fish sandwhich was homemade. Whatever it was, it was amazing! Located right on Hwy 35, you might not notice this place as you head north to your cabin, but it is worth a stop, and better food than you might find in the next town up the road.More
