I don't know just how famous Jimbo's Hamburger Place is, or if it has any connection to the Jimbo's Hamburger Palace diners in Harlem.  I don't know how good the burgers are.  The eggs, however, are great.  I had perfectly poached eggs - a simple menu item easily screwed up - with lightly toasted bread.  There was a deft hand at work here.  The inside of Jimbo's isn't special to look at: a nondescript but satisfying counter to sit at, and several small tables against the wall.  Service is brisk & efficient.  It's a useful go-to, low-budget spot for this part of town.

You gotta love any place named Jimbo's! And the fact that they make a perfect poached egg is definitely a plus. I've never had the nerve to order one of those out, I figure nothing could ever match my mom's poached eggs. The trickiest of all egg dishes indeed!
