Jimmy Guaco's

kpaxonite | May 31, 2014 01:09 PM

As mentioned in the Openings thread, Jimmy's was going to open on June 1st but opened a few days early to train staff.

I ordered a large Jimmy G special which at 13.80 with tax is the most expensive item on the menu. There are two sizes of each item with about a 3 dollar price difference between them. It absolutely blows M4 out of the water. They offer free guac ( I didnt try it but it looked alright)in their burritos unlike M4 and also offer far more ingredients. One of those ingredients is habanero pepper- which gives it a serious heat- something M4 completely lacks. Also the tortillas do not taste rubbery like at M4 and are slightly grilled before serving. Overall far better value and Im really looking forward to returning. Jimmy Guacos is generous in their offerings and the few times I went to M4 I found them very stingy. I sincerely hope Jimmy's keeps up their game.

There are lots of items with sweet potato which found a bit unusual but the manager/owner gave me a sample of it with feta and a corn and bean mixture and it was delicious. Vegetarians should be happy with the offerings although I did not see any leafy greens.

Also a plus for those who do take out- unfortunately, like M4 they have no plastic bags (even when it is pouring outside) but at least their paper bags have handles...
