The name “Jimbo’s Diner” sounds like one of those good ol', local places you go to grab a burger on a Friday night, which is exactly what we did. Instead of having that nostalgic diner feel, it was more of a  location that reeked of cigarettes with people playing Keno at 7:00 p.m.   Jack...

With Starbucks and Scooters sitting on every block serving up coffee that may as well be brewed with mop water for 6 bucks a cup, it is easy to leave flavor and health in the dust and down bottles of NOS in the morning instead of America’s breakfast staple.
