I had breakfast there with my husband, the best breakfast I recall. Eggs creole, topped with craw fish is must try, my husband loved his breakfast burrito and we shared carrot cake pancakes, what can possibly go wrong with that. Very fresh Bloody Mary , it's small place, there is line outside, to get in, don't get scared of it, it moves fast. I highly recommend

Sandwiches were delicious, as were the red beans and rice and shrimp and grits. Cucumber mojito was very tasty. Staff was friendly and fun. We were there around 7:00 pm mid-week and got a table immediately. This small, funky place is a treasure.

Wanted to have a New Orleans style brunch. Unfortunately no place has weekday brunch. So we found this place on a Wednesday morning. Omg we found a gem! Just look at the pictures.

Place is small (9 tables) so expect a wait. But consider it an investment in good eating. Everyone friendly and hustling. No delays for good drinks ( Bloody with Bacon was deelish), and for food. My wife had savory french toast with shrimp and garlic aoli sauce. She loved it. I had crawfish etouffe....seriously good. Breakfast orders all day include delicious Neusky's bacon. Everyone eating was happy. Highly recommend!

Great TINY restaurant with an amazing list of food and great service. I had been at a conference and couldn't handle another "meal in a box"...nor did I want to head to the tourist or expensive spots nearby. Luckily I found Jimmy J's!

Simplicity was my motto....but there are plenty of amazing looking (and smelling) items on the menu. Shrimp and Crawfish ettouffee was delicious and savory, with just the right amount of spice. Three pieces of "toast" accompanied it. Terrific! The meals I saw on the other diners' plates looked equally good.

Down home food. Good prices. Great, friendly service. A nice treat for a place that can be super touristy and expensive.

Thank you Jimmy J's!
