I just don't understand the draw of this place. Overpriced food, sub-par spaghetti sauce, often-rude service, limited parking. Their Italian hoagies are good, but for that price they had better be good! I just avoid this place.

We lived in Philadelphia, so we know good Italian food. If you're looking for authentic, home-style Italian, this is NOT the place to go. Jim's is good for sandwiches and a quick meal at a very reasonable price. Portions are plentiful, you won't leave hungry. Salad is served "family style" for larger groups. Service is good an attentive, though not... More

Jim's steaks are very good. I can't say exactly what it is but they are to die for. Their italian food is good as well. The sauce makes it.

I love the lasagna. The sauce is slightly sweet and it goes well with the creaminess of the cheese and ricotta. Plenty of food. Salad a must with the home made house dressing which comes with a small chibbata loaf.I find I am always bring food home.Seating is family style if the booths are full.

Always loved the food here. We moved from the area 4+ years ago so I was really looking forward to dining here. Food is still good, especially their salads. HOWEVER the service was terrible! We were seated in the little original dining area and it too 15-20 minutes until our order was even taken. Even worse was how long it... More

A small but very nice restaurant tucked back off of a main street with good home made pasta! You also got a large salad bowl to share and a hot loaf of Italian bread with your meal. The sause was sweet and I felt that it was somewhat Americanized but was good. We had a good meal, good service, a... More

So, let me start by saying that we haven't been to their restaurant yet, but we did enjoy a catered lunch by this restaurant. We love Italian food, so I was curious about the style and taste. I was blown away by their Baked Rigatoni! It was so yummy and that red sauce was so good, I was soaking up... More

The food is always excellent. Even if you ask for something that is not exactly on the menu they will prepare it your way.

My family and I have been dining at Jim's since I was a child. We love the spaghetti, chef salads, Italian hoagies and garlic bread! It is hard to say which is my favorite because I love them all. The spaghetti meatball sub is also amazing, especially when you get it on the garlic bread. Definitely a place to check... More
