Great chili choices. We sat down for lunch and they immediately gave us 5 chili samples to try. You know the exact spiciness level before ordering. Great flavors ranging from mango chicken to Boston turkey. Would definitely order bowl of chili instead of chili over eggs.

This place has a really nice atmosphere and the staff are so friendly and inviting! I ordered the chicken Alfredo penne pasta and it is so amazing! Their Alfredo sauce is one of a kind! Their Kobe burger is also really good, not too dry but just perfect. I would recommend this place to hungry people who come from the long DMV wait because it is absolutely worth it!

Have to say formy first visit....was duly impressed at the efficiency ofthe restaurant as well as its staff!!
Went to brunch with hubby who raved about his previous visits there....particularly about their tater tots!! Little things mean a lot!!
Their menu goes on for days....offering the best of both worlds to carnivores as well as their counterparts the vegetarians!!
What impressed me was the staff meeting all expectations w/o having to be summoned...whether it was their table or not!!
To the manager of the restaurant...this is a testament to you in communicating what & how you expect things to operate under your tutilage!!
Bravo!! We'll be back!!
Was this review …?

Came into Jinky's for the first time with my friend. My friend and I were greeted by our hostess and taken to our table. Our hostess got us both a glass of their in house brewed green iced tea. Very good as far as green tea goes. Our server Katie came immediately to our table and asked us what else she can bring us. She was knowledgeable of the menu when we asked about certain dishes. We first tried their chili fries with the chili on the side. You have a choice on level of heat so beware! We got a level six and felt it was perfect. When those got to the table we were like wow they looked yummy! There were amazing. I never finish fries and we finished every single last one. Then We tried their famous sausage and bacon Mac & Cheese. That was also very yummy you can eat it for breakfast! Our last choice which was so out of character for me to order breakfast for dinner. I ordered the banana Nutella crepes. Wow what a way to end the meal lol we wanted to try more but we're so full! We will be back for breakfast and probably order dinner lol. So yes I would definitely come back!! Thank you Katie for your service and nice smile ;)

I had the pleasure of dining with Katie today. My best friend and I love the restaurant. Our visits have become more often lately. I used to manage a major restaurant in the area so I know what great service really entails. This afternoon was the best experience I have had just yet. Katie really cares about her guests. (And she had MANY tables across the entire restaurant) she was very attentive and extremely helpful. Keep this girl around. She deserves "the perfect schedule". Thanks for the great service Katie! You're awesome!

Love this place! Great for vegetarians too. Try the blended mocha, it's better than Starbucks

Good food. Great waiters, waitresses and friendly busboys. Little bit of a wait sometimes. Recommend calling ahead if you are going for their chilis...usually only carries 6 to 8 of the twenty some offerings and always the same 6 to 8. The best tater tots in town!

Outstanding food, attentive waitress even when packed during a very busy morning. Great casual atmosphere.
Definitely will be my go to breakfast place.

This is for breakfast only. They have a huge menu and way too many options. I really do like their breakfasts and I have been there several times.

Always has a very casual and friendly atmosphere. This time was no different!
Our waiter was very attentive, and always nearby to help if we needed anything. The menu is very large, with options from many different cultures of food. The breakfast portion is lengthy and not too overpriced.
I ordered a Caprese Sandwich, which was delicious but a little light on the pesto sauce (it did say mild, but I didn't think it would be THIS mild). My boyfriend got the chicken Tikka Masala and it left him very full and extremely satisfied afterwards.
Overall, this is a great restaurant and I'm sure we'll return more than one time!

The food is amazing! I came here for breakfast and instantly became a fan. The place is busy as it is a hot spot. Start off with a mimosa and don't hold back!!

Very good breakfast menu. A variety of vegan and non vegan foods. Great service and atmosphere.
While my friends and I were in your quaint restaurant, which my son and daughter in law suggested we try, we were quite surprised as we were a bit skeptical.. It appeared to be a place for a much younger crowd. Your staff were all so polite and I believe we joked and talked to each about the "Table" I even examined it and told them it wasn't what they thought it was. I believe they were a bit surprised that a woman of my age would get under the thing and check it out. They laughed and kidded and we all had a great time. The food service was quick. Your cook did a fantastic job. Everything was quite tasty and enough portions that we all could have shared. I'm sorry that we didn't have time to write a proper review at the time we were there. We were passing through the area and we were on a time limit.

Great food. Customer service is good and friendly but slow to bring drinks. Tables after us got their drinks before us and it took two servers to get our drink orders. Aside that, very friendly staff and food was amazing.

Had a good experience here. They offer gardein...which went perfect with my fajitas. Delicious food... I want to try more items on the menu, so we will return. Still good Our waitress was very sweet and informative ...so that was a plus. I just wish they had vegan "cheese" options..
Thanks Jinkys we'll see you soon

Came here a few weeks ago after our group tried to do brunch at Viva la Pasta, but had to abort mission.
Jinky's Cafe gladly took us in last minute even though it was smack dab in the middle of brunch and there were 6 of us.
Our server was extremely patient even though half our group was hassling him.
Also, RED VELVET PANCAKES.
Will be back :)

Seems like a really nice place when you walk in. Clean. Staff was very friendly. I ordered the banana chocolate chip pancakes. I was super excited because i love chocolate chip pancakes and bananas have always been a favorite fruit of mine. They asked me if I wanted the chocolate chips and bananas on or in the pancake. I requested inside.

We came to Jinky's after a botched attempt at buffet brunch at, Viva La Pasta. Jinky's was our safe haven, our refuge!!
We were seated within moments at a high top table with comfy cushioned stools. Bottomless mimosas were $20 a person.... Man, they never did find that bottom! We were a table of 6 and although we were loud and rowdy, we got pretty excellent service. We had a full table of food, over 9 plates of various items including breakfast burritos, red velvet pancakes, tots, breakfast sandwiches... It was all delicious. The breakfast burrito literally made my morning!! I killed it. So crispy, flavorful, stuffed with delicious ingredients, and topped with cheese, chimichurri, sour cream, and salsa.
The menu was extensive! Plenty of options, healthy, some junk food and sweet stuff, Mexican breakfast options (a staple in So Cal!), and that bottomless mimosa option, hot damn!
I really appreciated the staff, friendliness, quality of our brunch experience overall!! You guys saved the day, thanks so much. We will surely return.

Three best plates I've had:
Caprese Sandwich w/Chicken
Crab Cake Benedict
Peppercorn Gorgonzola Burger

Amazing food. Slower service, but it was Valentine's Day, and see first sentence. Hangover burger and strawberry Nutella crepes, carafe of coffee, what's not to love? I feel the harsh reviews are really missing the amazing menu. Try it out!!

We've have been here multiple times and the food is fantastic. The choices of chili are amazing and the taste and heat to each of them is delicious. I have ordered their omelette and you can pick which chili goes on it. The quantity of food is plenty and I always have to take home 1/2 of it. Jinky's potatoes well done are amazing!

My 2nd time coming here but my first review and I must say this place does an amazing job of service and food quality. I had the chicken mushroom melt with seasoned fries and it was delicious. Great atmosphere. Food came out quickly, excellent choice for breakfast lunch or dinner.
