This place was walking distance from our hotel, we enjoyed breakfast here 2 days. Great for kids, lots of choices for Breakfast Brunch, quick fast service and good food. Skip the muffins.

I've been here a few times and to the one in W. Hollywood a few times. They have an amazing menu. Breakfast all day And plenty of interesting and healthier options to choose from.
Tonight we arrived just before they were closing. I ordered the breakfast quesadilla with egg whites. It was absolutely AMAZING. I want another one right now. It had a chicken-turkey chorizo sausage inside along with the eggs, cheese, and who knows what other fantastic-ness. But the kicker was the PEA GUACAMOLE! Lower fat than the standard stuff and oh-so-delicious! It tasted like fresh peas and cilantro. It was such a fresh and creative twist. I also had a decaf coffee and I must say it was the best decaf coffee I can recall in a long time. It was robust and flavorful. Fantastic meal.

I'm here just shaking my head at the occasional unhappy loser who actually has the time and the gall to come here to write mean, vicious, prejudicial and personal attacks about Jinky's food quality and its great staff. (Btw, this person is actually violating Yelp's guidelines and the post should be deleted)
Nope, no one is paying me, I'm doing this just out of principle and out of loyalty to a wonderful place that has been a pleasure to frequent for over a decade now. I'm just motivated by keeping the record straight and by the pleasure I derive from putting a sock in the mouths of those spreading injustice and lies with their sadly vilified sputtering pieholes.
Let me put it succinctly... After 10 years-plus being a happy customer, Jinky's -Sherman Oaks- continues to prove itself as a renowned Breakfast/Lunch spot not only in the Valley but -by now- in the whole of LA. I'm talking about 2 decades plus of undeniable, award winning praise by some of the most respected professional restaurant critics in town ("ZAGAT" among them) for the sustained success that has made Jinky's food and great service not only celebrated by those who qualify... but by the general public who over the years have made this place undeniably famous.
Jinky's is not only a favorite among local residents but also includes a long list of regular celebrities that feel comfortable and relaxed enough to be seen coming back for their "favorite" on a daily basis. It has been my honest and personal experience that Jinky's food has been consistently all of theses things : fresh, well presented and (did I say consistently?) delicious. I know Breakfast/Lunch have always been legendary and although I haven't had the chance to try it yet, I heard dinners are just as "gourmet" good.
Anybody who says Jinky's won't gladly and professionally go out of its way to handle an occasional problem is just plain LYING. If anything I'd say Jinky's gets very busy on a regular basis (especially weekends) and like ANY OTHER popular, successful and busy place in LA, the occasional delays may be experienced.
That addresses the truth and the facts in the matter. To summarize: what can be said about the character and real motivation of someone who would actually invest the time to come here and maliciously trash this one person she doesn't even know? (with imaginary stories btw) Doesn't that tell the real story? Please, just get some help... Your self-entitlement is way out of control. Stay home and let others live, work and enjoy life as they should. The world is a better place without your one time ill little attempt at discrediting a proven winner.
Go Jinky's! What can I say.... 20 years of continued success speaks for itself. ;-)
