Awesome food – I hesitated to write this review, because I don't want to encourage more people to go in there in get in front of me in line, but I have to. It's just too good. Big Jim runs the place and you won't find a nicer guy anywhere. He works along side his family who are equally hospitable. Say hi to his mom at the cash register. Most importantly, though, the food is awesome. I love the steak and eggs, but I've had almost everything on the menu without ever being disappointed. I also recommend checking out their prepared foods. They change daily and are always good.
This place rocks! – I love this place. The staff is always super friendly and courteous. The portions are HUGE. Homemade dishes that are sure to please.
I have had breakfast, lunch and dinner here. All are delicious and hot. You won't be disappointed.
They also cater which is great. I will be there for breakfast tomorrow at 6am. Can't wait!
Do yourself a favor and go get some Jim's!
you will love this place – Jim's is famous for a reason! Great deli-style sandwiches, daily specials, and much more. It's cafeteria style & plenty of seating. All the cops eat here so the food has to be good! The Pastrami/swiss grilled on marble rye is to die for! Try any of the daily specials...they will not disappoint. The folks that work there are sweethearts to boot! You will love Jim's a great value & great food!!
best deli in Brighton – Excellent food and friendly service! Try the greek wrap, the fusion wrap or the ruben.Jim's is a great breakfast place also!Try it and you will go back!
Poor service experience – Got some bad service there today, the kind that compels me to vent in an online review since I was civil about it in person.
Ordered a pastrami sandwich, and all I asked for was a sandwich. They took the liberty of serving it as a "sandwich plate", in other words, they included fries and a pickle and charged me an extra $1.75. Fine, honest enough mistake I guess. However, when I politely told them that all I wanted was a sandwich and not the "sandwich plate", instead of simply removing the fries, I was told by the grumpy old fellow behind the counter "next time order different."
Yeah, ok. Apparently, you're supposed to go out of your way to tell them not to include fries when you all you ordered was a sanwich. Their food is expensive enough as it is that you shouldn't be strong armed into paying extra for fries you didn't want or order.
I also thought it was shady that Jim himself tried to say that the sanwich "comes with fries" when I'm staring right at a menu that offers both a basic pastrami sandwich for $4.75 and a pastrami sandwich plate for $6.50.
Food is good, and Jim is always very nice and courteous, but I thought this was a very poor showing. I won't be returning any time soon.
Best Burgers around!! – Jim's has the best burgers in Brighton. I also love the Greek salads because they make their own amazing dressing. The people at work there are friendly and really take care of you. Like dinner at mom's house!--except cafeteria style :)
