It's All Good at Jimmy's Diner in Benton.
Where was I going with this? Oh yeah, Jimmy's Diner.
Jimmy's looks like it's
Even when you walk inside Jimmy's, you'd swear it'd been there nigh on forever. The memorabilia on the walls is aged. The photographs are ancient. The place even smells like a diner that's been around a couple of decades. But Jimmy's is only five or six years old.
I did see mention of chocolate gravy and had considered that over biscuits, but then I saw Jimmy's offers a Garden omelet. Okay, I was good with that.
One of the girls came out of the kitchen and asked me that since the breakfast potatoes were done for the day if hash browns would be all right. Of course they would be.
Now, my eggy plate was a whole lot of food, and the gravy was a massive bowl. And I had coffee. So, you'd imagine my surprise when I found my entire bill was just seven dollars and six cents. Coffee, as it turns out, comes complimentary with any bill over five dollars.
While I quite enjoyed this repast, I quickly was warned by fellow diners that I had not quite come to the best of Jimmy's. So I had to come back for lunch.
It was interesting that the fellow patrons felt it important to share this with me. See, now I know that it's not all good. Jimmy's Diner may be, but it's not all good that I haven't been for breakfast buffet. And since my schedule won't let me take that in for at least a month, I've decided to not make you wait on it. Get on over to Jimmy's.
So I will go back. But for now, amuse yourself with this garden omelet, bowl of gravy, burger and fried pie, and know that I will soon return to Edison Avenue.
