Where to start, how about the star of the eatery, "Jonathan." Jonathan greeted me moments upon entering Jinky's. He was genuinely polite and, "On the job!!" As I arrived during happy hour he related the specials, however, I had not eaten breakfast, and now six o'clock, the thought was consuming. Although a great pitch- I on the happy hour I ordered breakfast. Jonathan took my order and even convinced me without effort to have the tater tarts- awesome.
As I am sitting hear I can hear the lively employees singing along with the music- that was quite nice, a singing bartender has to be a happy bartender. Otherwise I'd probably overhear complaints with her coworkers on how unhappy she is...(voices travel). I heard singing! And she wasn't bad- I actually feel relaxed and want to take a nap if that says anything to her soothing voice. And watching Jonathan walk about, seemingly without rest attending to others in the restaurant says something about his work ethic and yet I was not left forgotten.
I was set on breakfast but their happy hour menu looks inviting with great pricing. All in all I must say that Jonathan took exceptional care of me and for that and the above observations, five stars are well deserved. I hope you get a raise in pay Jonathan because as employees go, you are an asset and your value doesn't go unnoticed, thank you Jonathan. First time waiting on me, but not the last-I will be back for happy hour. Now the food: Fresh, cooked as I requested, no mistakes in the order and down right delicious. My breakfast hit the spot! Thanks again Jonathan!

You feel like you should only give it 3 or 4 stars just because it's more of a breakfast lunch casual place. But the food is spot on big portions fresh so I have to give it 5 stars. Love the chocolate chip pancakes. Its not on the menu but they make an awesome Bloody Mary with sake that packs a punch.

The staff is very friendly and cozy environment. I was sat right away, and the place was buzzing for breakfast with what seemed like professionals on lunch enjoying a nice brunch. Plenty of seating tables and a few booths. The food was tasty(had the french toast with banana, strawberry, and chocolate chips)and definitely had a homemade feel. Prices are between 10-20 dollars, but menu does offer a verity of options. Over all this place seemed perfect for an intimate breakfast with family and or friends.

Great service. Had a large dining party and Trinni Liam was great in separating the bill. Hope you like the gift

I had the chicken sandwich with avocado and onion rings and it was delicious.
I also had a side of their "gourmet" mac and cheese which was a little different but still amazing.

My favorite place. Try the onion and zucchini thingie. It's so good! Chili is awesome! Wild wild wear and balafon turkey are my fave. Spinach Bites= Awesome. Breakfast is great!

I have been coming to Jinky's for about two years now. It's very good! My fiancé and I always order the Jinky's favorite omelette with spicy Italian sausage and sometimes I add jalapeños or green peppers (depends on my mood) and we split that (big portions) along with the breakfast potatoes. We also order the Flaky French Toast and split that. Note that we split both at one sitting.. It's delicious! Coffee is good too. Service is good as well, nice friendly staff.

I've eaten here probably fifty times and have always had a good meal.
They have a very broad menu so there is something for everyone. They have daily chili specials which I often try. The heat level can vary by day, but it's always good.
If you're in the area check it out.

Tina was amazing ! The service truly is outstanding ! The location is a bit small for all of the traffic that come in on a daily . That's why I gave four however everything is was so good . The food was hot til the last drop. They allow you to enjoy your time without rushing you . I am now looking forward to trying all of the locations. I can't wait !

Excellent!!!!! The food was so good I came back three times. I looked forward to waking up in my hotel room overlooking the beach so I can go get breakfast at Jinky's!! The staff and food were both great and worth a trip. A must stop in SaPhoenix, Arizonanta Monica!!

Huge menu. Comfortable atmosphere. Delicious food.
Jinky's menu ranges from the average to the eccentric. Everyday they feature 5-6 different types of gourmet chili, which is my favorite part! Pair the chili with a half sandwich or salad, or add it to fries or a burger!
This place has something for everyone - I highly recommend it!

One of my favorite lunch spots. Try one of their delicious salads, like the Sherman Oaks Delight!

Great Breakfasts (and Lunch and Dinner) We love Jinky's and go often. We love to sit outside and look at Ladyface mountain and enjoy the Agoura creek running by the side of the restaurant (a little loud inside when busy due to lots of hard surfaces). Jinky's is a neighborhood gem.

Very large menu with something to satisfy everyone. The breakfasts are really good. In general everything we've tried has been great. It's a nice neighborhood restaurant and everything seems to be prepared on the spot rather than sauces coming out of a can as in many chain restaurants.
The owner's a super nice guy and hangs out at the restaurant a lot, strolling among the tables to make sure his customers are happy. There are a lot of vegan and gluten free options available and they're willing to cook things without salt or make other accommodations to satisfy particular needs and tastes.
It's a friendly, low key nice place to go with very good, healthy food. We've never been disappointed here.

I want to start out by saying I'm a big fan of Jinky's!
My Fiance and I started going to the Jinkys off Kanan probably about every Sunday and fell in love with it, So we were pleasantly surprised when we saw they were opening one right next to our house! We love the diversity on the menu and whether we're in the mood for breakfast or lunch,dessert or drinks, Jinkys has it all.
There are some problems with this new location though.... The servers are nice but seemed usually overwhelmed(Except for a nice younger man with glasses who also works at the kanan location, I don't know his name but hes always great!), we usually have to ask for refills or condiments many times, and most of the time the busser brings them to us after we finally have to stop them since our server has forgotten. I know this location is newer and the service will probably improve as time goes on and they work all the kinks out.
That being said we love Jinkys and will continue to have them as our go-to when we need some good grub!

Always fast and friendly service. I have had breakfast here: omelettes, which come with their country potatoes, which I love love love. I have had salads, which are just ok and then I have had their chili. They are always willing to give you samples, and that's always nice. It's a casual setting, nothing fancy, but consistently tasty.
