Jimbo's Hamburger Palace
Posted by Bernard Black on 08/28/2008
I've eaten at Jimbo's a number of times. 7 out of 10 times the food is fine. biggest complaint is that the service is kinda slow. they tend to leave you there waiting for a while.. while guys are talking and such instead of cooking/prepping food.

I did a double take when I saw a Jimbo Hamburger on 1st Ave. I've eaten from at least two different Jimbos in Harlem. I thought...let me give it a try. It's a small joint where I felt comfortable to eat alone. I sat at the counter. I was surprised by the delicious fries. They were lite and crisp to perfection. I had a juicy turkey burger which was larger than the bun. I felt like I was at home, so I went to the cooler to get my own drink and didn't expect nor wanted pumped up service. It's a joint to go to for the burger not the atmosphere. I'm going to have a hard time going to Jimbo's uptown now. I miss those fries already.

The service was poor, the eggs were undercooked, the toast was burnt, and the atmosphere was like eating in a closet. I don't know where the other reviewers were eating.

Big Menu, tasty food, and very cheap. I like this place. I recommend the Texas burger with a fried egg on top.

Good food and service but the atmosphere to be honest isn't that good. There are 3 tables in the whole restaurant and like 5 stools. Its the smallest hamburger joint I've ever been to! But don't get the idea that it's bad. Excellent bacon-burger, soda, and fries. (What I call the real american meal) Overall, its a good place for a hamburger and if you like hamburgers, this is the place for you.

Don't go elsewhere when you can have a better burger for less right here. Sure the place is tiny so eating in is tight but why not just order. Quick delivery and nice service. Yummmm

at a counter and if you work in midtown on the eastside, check this place out. It's a tiny hole-in-the-wall counter diner with only three tables and you probably don't want to venture beyond ordering a burger and fries (I haven't anyways). But the burger and fries are very legit, with just the right amount of grease, the skinny-skinny fries, and the counter guy is really nice. He usually has a Post for you to read while you're waiting. The atmosphere is a bit "down and out in NYC" and I think that's why I like it so much. The place definitely has its regulars. I'd also add that a place like this is refreshing when we have joints like the elitist Zip Burger moving in with their "Hereford" beef burgers that cost around 10 bucks (before fries!). Here, your entire lunch will cost 7 bucks. I know 1st avenue is probably a walk for you, but the next time you're feeling like eating alone, and a good burger would hit the spot, enjoy the walk and hit up Jimbo's.
