When asked how he learned so much about food, Jim Sikes always answers the same way, ", I've been eating all my life.", In October 2005, Jim launched Jimmy's as homage to New Orleans and Creole Cuisine. Many of the dishes offered are inspired by dining experiences in New Orleans and the surrounding area while he was a graduate student at LSU and subsequent visits. At Jimmy's, we take little things seriously. Our Po-boy bread comes from Gambino's Bakery in New Orleans. So does the bread for our bread pudding. Our coffee is rich French roast that we purchase especially for us. The quality of tea we use to make iced tea is rare, which makesour offering quite unique. We make our own sauces. We use real butter and sharp Cheddar cheese. Our gumbo is ", the real thing.", Don't miss it. The same is true for our bread and banana puddings. Our butter baked crackers are very tasty. And Jimmy's Garlic Habanero Hot Sauce is available for you to take home or as a unusual gift from downtown Opelika. Our wine list has won national awards. We pride ourselves on the finest selections. Jimmy's menus can be found on our web site-jimmysopelika.com. Each menu is updated weekly to bring you the best in Creole Cuisine. In short, you are the reason we are here. If you want some thing special, we'll try to make it for you. In every case, remember that good food takes time to prepare. Jim welcomes guests as if in his own home. We hope you'll enjoy your visit and return again and again. Laissez les bon temps rouler!!!
