  • Crazy Loud!!!

    This was a fun, lively place for lunch, but it was soooo loud we could hardly hear each other across the table. Everyone really enjoyed our meals and one of our group even needed a special request that got taken care of smoothly and expertly. I will probably go back, but I might have to wear earplugs...

    The service was a bit slow, but the food was terrific. We shared the BBQ platter and it was delicious. For dessert we had the wings (who needs pie?) and the sauce was superb. The restaurant was filling up so the wings took a long time to get to our table. Be prepared to wait because the kitchen gets backed up (we were seated next to the pick up area for food and noticed that they have a lot of orders that are picked up be a delivery guy). We'll be back to enjoy more of their "bar food". We were annoyed at waiting for our drinks (canned beer shouldn't take but a few minutes to deliver).

    We went here twice on our vacation to Denver because of the unique food and outstanding service. Jimmy's has very approachable menu that appeals to many. The service is impeccable even when its crowded! Austin was one of our servers and he is just amazing!! Definitely try this place if you are in the Denver area.

    I stumbled on Jimmy's, looking through Open Table for a dinner place before a baseball game. Jimmy's was great. We loved the ghost fries. My husband had the chicken sandwich with the special pepper sauce, which he cleaned up. I had the heirloom grilled cheese. Our server, Justin, was great. We will be back.

    I was looking for a place to eat for 9 people and decided to try Jimmy's based on other reviews. Everyone loved their food except for the person who enjoyed their jambalaya but thought it was a bit too spicy, and the ribs were a little overcooked. Black bean burgers, the fatal attraction, the salads and the fries were excellent! The service was good, and I'd definitely eat here again. I was very impressed that I could get a reservation for 9 as the place isn't large. I'd highly recommend getting a reservation as it gets hopping at this place!

    Talk about an hidden gem. Jimmy's doesn't look like much from the outside, but the magic happening in the kitchen is something special. Go for brunch - the nicely limited brunch menu is packed with some of the best brunch fare I've ever eaten. The Memphis Eggs Benedict with the smoked pork was unbelievable. The breakfast burrito was almost the size of a goat's head and filled with yumm. The 20-hour smoked brisket was better than I smoke at home according to my wife. So, keep this one to yourself (not really) it is spectacular in every way!!

  • Where is the champagne?
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 6/15/2014
    This was the second time we ate at Jimmy's for brunch. The first time was just great. The breakfast burritos were tasty and filling, and the bottomless mimosas were just what Sunday morning brunch needed. The second time, on Fathers Day, the food was equally good. We had the special, biscuits and gravy, along with a piece of African chicken. The "gravy" on the biscuits was rich and savory which complimented the chicken well. Our complaint was with the "mimosas". This time we were served glasses of fairly warm orange juice with almost no hint of champagne mixed in. There are many restaurants that serve decent bottomless mimosas alongside some very creative brunch dishes. It will be a while before we return.

    We haven't tried the other menus, but brunch was great, service was excellent, and even on a Sunday it wasn't too crowded so you don't have to wait in line like other restaurants with food on this level. We hope they don't get too popular, but they deserve to.

    I took my mother and my grandmother for a Mother's Day brunch at Jimmy's and it was wonderful. All three of us ordered the special and it was delicious! We even ordered dessert (Jack Daniels ice cream and coke bread pudding). It was splendid. The staff was extremely courteous and friendly. Our waitress was very professional yet hospitable. She was superb. In addition, the restaurant gave my mother and grandmother each a small bag of chocolates and gift cards for Mother's Day! I will be coming here again!

  • Easter Brunch
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 4/20/2014
    We made last minute reservations for our family of six for Easter Brunch, which included three teenagers. Although the menu online looked very versatile for our wide range of ages and tastes, we were a little leery about what we might actually experience for a holiday brunch. Well... the food and service was outstanding. Every family member ordered something different and absolutely loved their meal. Having three boys in the party, they appreciated the HUGE portions! My husband and I plan to ditch the kids in the future, and attend a weekend brunch alone...although, the kids didn't like that idea too much!

    We recently ate at Jimmy's Urban bar and grill before an Av's playoff game. It was well enough before the game so they were not extremely busy. I made a reservation for 6pm, and we arrived at 5:50pm. The hostess seemed very frazzled but was very nice. We waited around the bar and our table was ready about 10 minutes later. Our waitress was Kelly, and she was very nice when she did visit the table. After each visit there was about a 15-20 minute wait before she would return again. It was frustrating that the table next to us, who sat down 15 minutes after us, received their drinks before us. The food that we ordered was great. I strongly recommend the Ghost fries. To sum up our experience, the food was great, the service was okay.

    The bottomless mimosas are pre-mixed, so you can't do just champagne. And, they do not sell bottles of champagne, which was disappointing but totally understandable. The brunch menu is fantastic. And, I like that most of the regular menu is available as well. Got the hotwings appetizer with brunch! The wings were good. The brisket was good, but a bit dry. It isn't a "hash" as listed on the menu, but rather a large portion of brisket with peppers & onions on the side. The potatoes go cold rather quickly, so be sure to eat those first. From around the table I heard raves about the Chicken & Waffles, the Pork Belly Waffle and the scramble/bowls. The breakfast burritos looked enormous and delicious as well.

    I took my girlfriend here for Valentines day, and we had a really good time. I actually chose Jimmy's because she is Vegetarian (or.. That kind that occasionally eats fish.) and I eat meat and such, so I was looking for a place that would offer some good options for her as well as myself. Jimmy's had a pretty good spread between veg, fishy, and carnivorous options. Service was fine, and the food was all really good and interesting. Some of the ingredient mixes were really clever and it was reasonably priced for a good date atmosphere. (Like 30 a person between dinner and drinks.)

    I couldn't believe we could get such great food for such a low price! You must go here! This is gourmet quality bbq, I've been to BBQ competitions in Texas and tried all kinds. This was the best I've ever had. Jimmy's is going to be THE next brunch place. I picked the Smoked Brisket hash and he got the Breakfast Burrito. The food was Jimmy Johns fast and when we tasted it, It was EPIC. The brisket devastated me, I spent the next 20 min moaning intermittently and making noises that might have made the other patrons uncomfortable. I didn't care. The brisket was perfectly tangy and smokey. The breakfast burrito was the stuff of legends, it was MASSIVE , it was stuffed with delicious green chili and smoked meat. Awesome staff too!

    Jimmy's Urban Bar and Grill was a good choice for our group of 9 people. There was a good variety on the menu, even for our pickiest of friends, and great appetizers to share. While not all opinions of the food were raves (Of 3 people, the consensus was that pork dishes could've been seasoned more), there wasn't a member of our group that regretted their order, and we have reason to go back to try the many of the other original dishes that Jimmy's serves up. I, personally, enjoyed everything I tasted, food and brew alike.

    I'm so glad I stumbled upon Jimmys on Open Table the place was fantastic and the people were so friendly .We had reservations for a 2 top and after we arrived we had some more friends that decided to meet us they were great and put together a couple tables for us even though they were very busy. Our group of six loved everything the Sage Pork Chop w/ sweet potato gnocchi was delicious as was the Rye Whiskey Mule they made for me . I also tried a friends Chicken & Waffles with Whiskey Maple Gravy on it by far the best Chicken & Waffles I've ever had .. They also had a very nice wine list that was very affordable we ended up sharing a couple bottles I came back the next night at 11pm there kitchen was still open with a great late night menu
