Jimbo’s Breakfast & Lunch House, an old school diner-style restaurant with a vintage exterior and sky-high sign, is a time-tested staple for solid breakfast and lunch fare in a basic but nevertheless inviting family-style environment. Located along College Road, and just a stone’s throw away from Hugh MacRae Park, this classic little restaurant serves up hearty plates at budget-friendly prices to generations of Wilmington visitors and locals alike.

The menu features all the diner and southern staples, as well as ever-changing specials like homemade soups, BBQ plates, and specialty sides to accompany a hearty main dish. Breakfast fans will want to go for the big egg platters or the omelets, which are served up with grits or griddle-cooked hash browns, while lunchtime or supper patrons can feast on fried chicken, turkey and stuffing, the quiche of the day, or an array of salads, sandwiches, or entrees that are clearly southern influenced. Keep an eye out for fresh desserts, as well as the side dishes, which are always changing and can include home-grown favorites like rice and gravy, pickled beets, fried okra, and potato salad. A good destination for a no-frills meal at a budget-friendly price, Jimbo’s Breakfast & Lunch House will appeal to hungry patrons who want simplified southern cooking.
