This Greek family diner, commonly known as “Jimmy’s” is nestled on the east side of Rand Road in Des Plaines, Illinois. Owned by Mr. and Mrs. James Stergios and run by sons Peter and Spiros, the restaurant is a family-friendly atmosphere with warm and welcoming owners. Restaurant meals include breakfast, lunch and dinner, with appetizers and sides including their well-known Saganaki, crispy mozzarella sticks, their perfected Greek salad, and for breakfast, Jimmy’s salty, crispy hash browns are a must. If ordering breakfast, an omelet, made to order, a Gypsy skillet, or a chopped steak along side sunny-side-up eggs would be a delicious decision. For a lunch break, a BLT, chicken caesar salad, or a juicy cheeseburger with Tina’s salty, golden brown french-fries will settle well in a starving stomach. A delectable dinner decision would be traditional Greek kabobs with golden Greek potato wedges fit for a king. With the perfect balance of spices and appropriate prices, Jimmy’s won’t rob your wallet, and will invigorate your taste buds.
