Jimboys tacos, sac
anybody been to this chain??? they have one here in vegas and I'd like to try one, I'm originally from the SF east bay area, but they don't have any here yet. THX.
About a zillion times. IMO, the best fast food taco you can get. They are even better at the Roseville Auction though....
They cook the taco differently. No taco shell, the tortilla is fried on a griddle, the meat added, to the inside, the tortilla folded, cheese melted over it and then parmesan cheese is sprinkled on the outer shell.
Lettuce is the only thing added after cooking. Best with the "hot" sauce (original).
It's a different kinda thing. IMHO not worth a trip out of your way, but try it if you're near one and hungry.
It's an interesting take on the fast food taco. As noted above, no industrial made-in-New-Jersey taco shells, but corn tortillas that aren't bad. Not good, but... The dusting of parmesean cheese is an interesting and tasty twist. Other cheeses involved in the process (the orange stuff that they probably characterize as cheddar) have the mouthfeel of a petroleum byproduct. Avoid. The picadillo is big step above typical fast-food beef filling. Nothing special, but edible.
When it's late at night, you're hungry, and the drive-through is there, give 'em a shot. Keep your expectations limited and you may be pleasantly surprised.
Wow, Vegas! I knew there were Jimboys in Reno, but Las Vegas is a shock. Definately go and have some tacos. I am partial to the chicken tacos myself. The flavors and juices are very good. I like the soft/hard texture of the fried tortilla and the fresh ingredients. Usually, they have Sunday Tacos too - ground beef, but dirt cheap.
Their quesadillas are very good, especially with the fresh salsa bar. Go and try this successful Sacramento chain when you have a chance. I am glad to see they are becoming more successful.
There's several of them in the Reno area. The quality varies widely here. Probably the best one is on Sullivan Lane in Sparks. I stopped going to the one on Wells AVenue in Reno, the quality was so poor.
