This location simply makes better burritos than the others, every time. Especially the late night staff, I see the same friendly face every time I show up after midnight, and I get a perfect Tahoe burrito. There's closer jimboys to where I live, but the same Tahoe burrito has never tasted as good so now I only go to this one!

Whenever I fly into Reno, I immediately go to Jimboys, They have my favorite Tacos. In my opinion. I came here a few nights ago, at around 12 p.m., and it was surprisingly busy, with a line wrapped around the building, which was weird for that hour. Anyways, the service was decent, the atmosphere is OK, but on the topic of food, when I tell you those might be some of my favorite tacos, you better believe it! They have a tortilla shell that has Parmesan cheese, which is so good, and really greasy ground beef, which is a part of the flavor that really adds. And they mix american cheese with the ground beef, so it's really cheesy ground beef, which I absolutely love! Overall, I love jimboys, if your in the mood for good Mexican food, I'd recommend coming!

Don't be fooled by the outside appearance of this restaurant. They serve some really good Mexican food here! I especially love their fiesta green chili breakfast burrito! It's the best breakfast burrito I've had anywhere!

I have visited every Jim Boy's, in Reno, and I think this is the best one. It's an older facility, but is very clean. The front counter lady is very cordial and pleasant which attributed to a nice visit.

We went here as a nostalgic visit for my husband and his family. The tacos are different from what we have in S. California and they were quite tasty.

Lobby was closed, we were on foot, guy in drive thru was super cool about it, he even brought our food to us at outdoor seating. Food was fantastic! Best quesadilla I ever had! ❤️

Jimboy's Tacos on Wells Ave. seems like a rather dingy restaurant in a rundown part of town, yet you'll note they have some of the longest drive through lines in town. That's because their food is awesome! They offer fairly quick service (considering those long drive through lines), everything on their moderate-sized menu is delicious. Open later then just about every other fast food restaurant in Reno, except the 24 hour McDonald's, they offer hot, tasty mexican food until 3am every night of the week. If it's late and you're hungry, I highly recommend. Especially delicious are their Tacos, Cheese Quesadillas and the Taco Salad with Carne Asada meat...and I can never resist getting an order of their cinnamon crusted churos!

Quick service, friendly staff and amazing food for the price you're paying. I don't have Jimboy's Tacos where I live, so it's a nice treat to have when visiting from out of town.

Oh my goodness these people!! They were so nice, quick, friendly, and polite at 330 am because I was so burnt out on Taco Bell. Yes they're a little pricier but they are more than worth it the food was hot, fresh, and delicious even with only thirty minutes until closing. Would highly recommend them for great food any time but especially late night.

Interesting history as compared to the employees who work here, the quesadilla was lip smackingly delicious and the nachos made an extra meal in transit, a pleasant luxury just like the appeal of pizza leftovers. So yum!

They were really busy with a late rush on a Sunday night. The speaker in the drive thru was acting crazy. The person taking orders kept cool and got accurate orders out fast! Pretty great service from such a tiny location!

Jim Boys, started in Tahoe but seems it became what it is in Reno and Sparks. They have been around 40+ years and everything they make is great. It is known, at least in my circle for their unique and wonderful beef tacos. They are something you must try for yourself. Any description I try would not give them true justice. If you get the chance stop and give it a try. When you see the arterial plugging grease ignore it cuz it's part of the greatness.

You have to know what you're here for. It's fast food. The priority is speed, and they clearly try to squeeze as much quality as they can into their product while keeping the quick-paced mentality.The food is fresh and delicious. It isn't gourmet, and isn't trying to be. But they are quick and consistent!Dining room is larger than you'd expect, and the space was clean and organized.

This place has a vast variety of Mexican food. I was in the mood for a cheese burger. It came with fries and a coke, the-meal deal. This was one of THE best burgers I've ever had!! Big, juicy and a meal in its self. The fries are PAPAS style. Big and delicious. My burger was so satisfying....I didn't expect a burger here. Now I want one. The staff is very polite and helpful. Check it out!

I love their tacos. Surprising because I think they have Parmesan cheese on them. Or maybe it's a Mexican hard cheese. Also love the combination burrito. I usually do not like fast foods, but I love theirs.

For a midnight dinner the food presentation was very inviting. It looked very healthy by adding a small green salad as a side course. I could appreciate that special touch while being unable to cook a dinner after a late shift.

We went for taco salads and burritos. I love how everything is made fresh and doesn't taste like it sat out for days. People are always nice and the prices are worth it (even though it's not expensive at all). Will definitely continue to go there!
01:16 27 Mar 21
I love Jimboy's Tacos! Every time I go through Reno I stop at this location, it has a nice dining area and it's pretty big. They're always very friendly and the food is delicious! I always get a bean burrito and a ground beef taco with mild salsa cups. Classic and amazing! I'll be stopping by again in a couple days on my way back through town. Can't miss it!

This is my favorite Jimboys out of them all. They are super quick with your order (I've only done drive through) and the food is KILLER. Greasy, but Killer. Also one of the best double cheeseburgers and fries (best potato wedges EVER!!) EVER!!! The late night guy is a great dude too. everything was excellent, highly recommend

No nonsense. Real meat. Savory shredded chicken. I love how informal they are at the drive-thru. Has a decidedly non corporate feel and great chicken tacos.

While the food was fresh, I don't feel like it was fully prepared properly. The tacos were lacking the powder parmesian cheese, and the beans were undercooked. However, there was only one worker. So given the circumstance, it was still a decent quality meal.

We happened on this place while traveling through. Food was decent and filling. One bonus for COVID-19 times: outside seating available. Not a lot, but we were the only ones who stayed. Everyone else was to go. Main reason for docking a star was the stuff in the bag got a bit greasy because some items were only in a paper pocket rather than securely wrapped.. And we only had to walk a few yards.

These guys have exceeded the normal customer service that most restaurants provide in my opinion. You can tell that they are dedicated to their loyal customers

Great place for quick & straightforward Mexican food. Prices are quite reasonable, even on the low side. Never had a bad experience with these guys or this location. Got the chicken super burrito & as you can see from my pictures it is quite a burrito! My friend from the East Coast came to visit & I told him he could not leave Reno without experiencing Jimboys.

Its convienient, open late, the employee at night does an excellent job especially for being alone. Quick and accurate service. People often forget what it takes to do a job like that. His ability and service is 5 star . giving 4 is to leave that constant remonder that we all have room to grow and find more ways to be better and better at what you do.

Best late night option for tacos or Mexican food in general. A little greasy sometimes but the food here tastes great and has lots of flavor.

A Tahoe original that has grown to an awesome chain that makes American Tacos. Yes, I said American Tacos... Their offerings are admittedly a twist on the old favorite.

Food was made decently fast and was very delicious! Restrooms require a code which is given upon purchase and is perfectly understandable. Decent prices and food is authentic, more so than taco bell lol. Customer service is great and am always served with a smile. Honestly I would recommend visiting this store 100%!

Still the best greasy taco ever! I've been eating these since the 70's. Nothing else taste as good. Hope they don't try to make them healthier! Cause it's all those yummy juices that make the tacos and burritos soooo good! I love 7 hours away now, it's still a must stop every time we visit relatives!

Who doesn't love Jimboy's tacos? This particular trip I had gone or but shrimp tacos, delightful they were absolutely delicious! The people at Jim Boyce tacos are always speedy and offer service with a smile. The location on Wells is almost always busy. They can get you in-and-out rapidly, or you can dine in . Always a yummy bite to eat.

The best-tasting comida español rapido around! There is not one item on their menu that fails to make my mouth water! Good Grief! Del Taco, Jack in the Box, Taco Time and all the other places who purport to make and sell fast-food-type tacos or burritos might as well give up. NO ONE makes a quick taco as yummy as Jimboy's! Deliciously unique largely because of the cheese on the cooked-to-order taco shells and mouth-watering sauce that drips from the slow-cooked chicken and beef, you will WANT more! No one can create a quick burrito that leaves you wanting another one is a ditto as well! Jimboy's has been around for a long time for a dfarn good reason. Their food is THAT GOOD! The next time you are in the mood for a quick taco, burrito or even a platter that includes rice and beans, zip over to Jimboy's. I have been a fan for as long as I can remember. Jimboy's and I go back a L-O-N-G way and I hope they never go away. Hmm...while I am writing this, all I can think of is, "I wonder if I have the time for a taco, combination burrito and a side of guacamole?" Yup. I'll say it again! Jimboy's IS THAT GOOD!
