I turned onto Glascow Street from Navarro Street and saw a lot full of cars and pickup trucks. I've come to the right spot.
Jim's Big Burger has become a local favorite in Victoria for people of all ages.
Customers can purchase T-shirts sharing their devotion. This place shows a real sense of hometown pride.
The sounds of local radio play softly in the room and the walls are adorned with inspirational quotes and business cards.
The menu consists of traditional American cuisine with hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken sandwiches. Prices are reasonable.
While everyone knew your name at Cheers - people at Jim's learn yours.
The server calls your name out loud and brings the food to you.
My hunger gene craved a good, old-fashioned hamburger, and I was not disappointed.
The Big Burger had chopped romaine lettuce (that's the fancy kind), fresh tomatoes and grilled onions. I had to dress my sandwich with cheese.
It was delicious. The toasted bread was a pleasant surprise.
As a french fry connoisseur with 20 plus years experience, I put every potato through rigorous testing.
I rate each experience as perfect, with no need to add anything; good, taste meets the mark with a little help; edible, needs to be doused in ketchup; and cold, which is unforgivable.
I give these fries a good.
For dessert, I ordered a cherry slushie, it was worth every penny. It only cost 30 of them. What a perfect way to round out this filling meal.
I will be back and highly recommend it.
