Jimmy's Diner

To a certain degree, the low-rent rep owner Josh Cohen forged at Park Slope’s Biscuit BBQ survives at this shabby Billyburg greasy spoon. Though fried chicken lacked for a craggy texture, and a generic “money-back” brownie didn’t deliver, Jimmy’s does offer the occasional stroke of genius. The brilliant Williamsburger combines a juicy patty with a crisp latke and tart applesauce, and deep-fried deviled eggs stand in contrast with more traditional versions. Like any proper diner, Jimmy’s isn’t a destination, but it is a fine place to dry out after a night of drinking.

Very busy on the weekend, but my estimated *30 minute wait* ended up only being 5, so they move them out fast! My pancakes were scrumptious and my boyfriends pulled pork breakfast bowl was yummy! Slightly elevated no frills diner food, and a good price to match! A really great place for breakfast!  Cash only!


Two words: breakfast bowls. A few more words: don't come here on a diet (but do come when you're hungover). The best $9 you'll ever spend on brunch is called the Tater Heaven and it will save you from all of life's, and alcohol's, ailments.

Just bring cash and be prepared to wait a little, but it's so worth it. Plus, you're close enough to McCarren Park to walk off the calories later.
