Just wow. Jims burgers are incredible. Best hangover food in Boston. Huge, greasy and full of flavor. The prices are fair and the service is phenomenal. Always a pleasure :-) This is the first place I will go next time I visit Boston!

Came here with some fellow students regularly during our time in Brighton and we always enjoyed the food. Great people with heart for what they do. Affordable though, so no reason not to try this one.

Our group found Jim's and loved this place. We had lunch and breakfast there during our football game weekend. Loved the food, wish we had Jim's back home in SC!

My friend and I went for breakfast. The system is odd but I guess it works for them. You grab a tray and order your food, wait for it to be cooked and pay at the end. I ordered an omelet with wheat toast and my friend ordered a Reuben. My toast came out before my omelette so when we... More

It is very simple place with awesome food, good size portions and wallet friendly prices. There are daily specials and the cooks are very willing to switch up things!! Again nothing fancy BUT very good!! Highly recommend! If you are missing mom's home cooked food then this is your place!

great burgers & super-sized sandwiches served from a counter onto a lunch tray with sitting in booths. Texan Burger was super as was the Chicken Parm. Awesome mac & cheese. Generous portions of fries. My only two complaints are they handed me a water bottle ($1.75) when I asked for a glass of water & they have cheapo ketchup.

Jim's is the best - best omelettes, best burgers, best atmosphere, best staff. The people make the place, and are so friendly and welcoming. The place is always bustling and rightly so.
