I think that this Jim's Steaks was bought by another because the service is worse and the food is tasteless. The last time my husband and I went there, the cook was very rude. He would not cook my steak like I ordered it. I ordered with sweet and hot peppers cooked in and with mayo. He actually told my husband that he will put the mayo and peppers on the side and we can " put them on at home in front of the tv." He was not kidding and he put all the extras in the bag. When I got home I bit into my cheese steak and found no seasoning. I requested salt and pepper and found nothing. The beef also tasted substandard. I remember Jim's Steaks 20 years ago when the food was to die for, or is that just the one on South street? I do not recommend this location.

I remember going to Jim' Steaks a few times right after they opened.. over a decade ago.. and I remember it being sevicable.. I was probably hungover.. because this place is not good. I went in there with my daughters this time and waited to give my order.. there were 2 men waiting for food who had already ordered.. 1 of the guys was talking with the cook.. alot. Now.. there are two other people standing and staring at this chatty customer.. bug eyed, slack jawed, then they are staring at the beef being chopped up on the grill.. nevermind the guy waiting to place his order with 2 small children.. who would just like to order a sit down asap.. no, it took almost ten minutes before one of the kids felt he needed to take my order. I gave my order.. then had to give it again to the chef?! Sat down.. and was greeted with a "Are you gonna eat in?" Almost he couldn't believe I would have the nerve. Food ready..the kid puts it on the counter..FYI, I'm the only person in the joint..so little effort is required to carry that food out my table.. when I got two kids.. and a stroller. That's the kind of service that says to me.. hey they actually want my business.. I may come back here. the food was alright.. the steak was chewy a times and I couldn't swallow it. My 3 yr old got a cheeseburger she didn't finish.. very seldom does that happen as she loves chsbrgs. Cheese fries were served in a tall cup? what!!? My milkshake was watery. napkins were flimsy and hardly effective. They hadn't stocked the red chilis in oil on the counter or the pepper relish. The atmosphere consist of banter of nights plans and laughter from the staff. It was then I realized that they all really wanted to get out there and it was close to closing when I arrived. I was giant roadblock keeping them from there summer night... and they made that perfectly clear. Poor service, servicable food.. minus the milkshake(atrocious). Annoying staff, who'd rather joke around together doing the minimal required of them, than provide mediocre service.
