1st time here. It was packed but the wait was not long. They took a team approach to greeting and seating. The wait staff was great and friendly. I had the breakfast burrito with green chile. MMMMM! It was big and tasty!

Jimmy's hits the spot. Love the Albuquerque turkey and the cream of green chile soup is AMAZING! There are plenty of yummy options to choose from. Prices are pretty good. Only cons are that it is a little cramped inside and not too comfortable but the food makes it worth it. I do not personally think it would be the... More

My wife and I stopped for breakfast after looking for a place convenient to our hotel. Our server was very polite and quick to respond any anything we may have needed. The food was good and a good deal for the price. Don't think you could go wrong here.

I have been numerous times....most of the time, the food is great. Don't get the carne adovada! It is not that good...there are much better in town. The New Mexico Chicken Skillet is great!

We were looking for a place for a quick breakfast, not in the hotel. We found this place on Yelp and decided to give it a try. Great find! The service was excellent, they had a nice variety of breakfast choices, and the food was great. I had a short stack of pancakes and was glad I did. They were... More

We have eaten at Jimmy's several times over the last year, so this review is not limited to one experience. Jimmy's is consistent, quick and accurate service, large and flavorful portions and a complete fresh made meal less than $10! I believe this is a great business model for any restaurant. Repeat customers because of consistent excellent results. Every time... More

We had to be in Albuquerque for a fasting blood draw. Afterwards, we wanted a really good place to have breakfast. I remembered that Jimmy's Cafe on Jefferson was open for breakfast. We were seated right away and our server promptly took our drink orders. I ordered the meat skillet with sausage, ham and carne adovada which came on a... More

The coffee was very weak, the eggs and hash browns average, and the turkey sausage poor quality. There are other local places I would prefer to visit for breakfast instead.

This place is great, I would highly recommend if your in Albuquerque. The chili is awesome. I had the breakfast enchiladas and had them put a scrambled egg in each one, good stuff!

We love Jimmys Breakfast. Have to try the meaty skillet. Full of flavor. Service is also awesome with very friendly and attentive waitresses. This is by far our favorite breakfast spot.
