Solid family Cafe off the 118 on Arboles.
Location shares a parking lot with Ciscos and a strip mall so there is plenty of shopping. We went on a Friday night and it was nearly empty, which was concerning. The prices were reasonable; perhaps $3-4 higher per plate than you'd expect from similar cafes.
The service was 3-4 stars. Not great, but not terrible. The food was good overall. I got a Chicken Parm Sandwich which was tasty. My son had a flat bread pepperoni pizza which was pretty large and tasted good. My wife had a grilled chicken sandwich. Overall, the food was fresh and well prepared. Drinks were refilled after a short delay, but we didn't have to chase after the waitress.
The restaurant has nice booths and large TV's to watch sports. Frankly was surprised it was so empty on a Friday night.
Overall, a nice cafe to grab a bite. Family of four cost $60 after tip. Bit high for a cafe, but not crazy expensive. 4 stars.

I had been wanting to try this place for awhile and finally did this evening. The menu is HUGE and they have all kinds of options for anyone with a different kind of diet. I had a vegan breakfast that consisted of wild rice, tofu, and veggies with a side of tater tots. I can't resist tater tots! It was great except a bit too spicy for my tastes... next time will request that they go easy on the spice. Actually, next time I'll be ordering some of those delicious pancakes. We sat at the counter, which is always my preferred spot in a diner. Our server was awesome... didn't catch his name but he was a very friendly young guy who was doing a fabulous job behind the counter. Can't wait to go back for pancakes!

Good Local Food
Good for breakfast and lunch. Nice and large menu with something for everyone. BrEakfast is,my favorite and menu has lots of sweet and savory options. Normal prices and comfortable atmosphere. My experience has been that service is slow but not terribly.

Well, my most recent experience with Jinky's was finally on par with its food. I went back yesterday for lunch because I was craving their Rosemary Omelet, and the service was vastly improved. The host staff was friendly and admirably efficient; I was impressed with how quickly they had people moving in and out of the restaurant.
We waited a few minutes, but only because they were busy, and we were seated as soon as there was an opening. Even though they were crowded, the restaurant was well-staffed, so we were attended to and served quickly. Everyone was very polite and friendly (entirely new staff), and somehow, it wasn't even as impossibly loud as it used to be.
I must admit that the owner really took the comments I've seen on here to heart, and Jinky's is back to being my go-to place. In fact, I think it's going to be my new happy hour place- great deals on good food and drinks, and their sangria is wonderful. Very pleased with all of the changes that have been made!

Came here with the BF for breakfast. They get really busy so it's better to get there early. Not sure how it is during lunch or dinner time. I'm sure it gets busy as well! The parking lot is small so try to park on the street meters if you find any spots there first. The service can be a little slow but once you get the food, it's all worth it :) the BF ordered the Flourentine Benedict which consisted of poached eggs, spinach, potatoe slices, tomato and I think it was on top of 2 biscuits. His dish was very yummy because I love poached eggs! I had the SBC Flaky French Toast. (Strawberry, banana, chocolate) and that was very yummy as well. I loved the combination of the toppings along with the flaky-ness of the french toast. I would come back to try other stuff on their menu if I'm in the area.
Overall, I give it 4/5 stars =)

So you spent the wee hours looking for a Taco Bell and woke up this morning to realize you slept in your fishnets, again? Don't fret; there is always Jinky's to ease your throbbing gut with a breakfast that is both tasty and healthy. Word is out so of course there's a wait, especially on weekends; but they awesomely provide big Thermoses of coffee and umbrellas outside the front door so you can slouch on a plastic chair in your sunglasses, caffeinating and sucking down some fresh air. Your pangs of hunger will be eased by the anticipation of the creative and endless breakfast menu, on which literally everything is good. They have veggie chili and chorizo, and the French Garden Omelet and Breakfast Sandwich are personal favorites. Parking is ridiculous so I would recommend living near here and walking, as I do. Or if you must drive, please don't run me over.
