At Jimmy’s When asked how he learned so much about food, Jim Sikes always answers the same way, “I’ve been eating all my life.” He also admits his friends add, “But you’ve been paying attention.” In October 2005, Jim launched Jimmy’s as homage to great food in the New Orleans tradition. We remain true to classic Creole approaches in what we do. At Jimmy’s we are a part of the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America’s Chef to Plate. This is an awareness campaign designed to celebrate restaurants serving gluten-free items. In 2011, more than 900 restaurants participated and the program reached over 7 million people. We received our 2012 certificate and are proud to display it. Jimmy's offers gluten free meals at every setting for lunch and dinner. We are able to prepare those foods in an area to avoid contamination. We always have other grain alternatives on hand. We have rice noodles and corn based pasta for example. We buy as many additive-free products as we can. We avoid tri-polysulfate and other preservatives whose properties sometimes cause difficulties with people with gluten intolerance and other sensitivities. At Jimmy’s we handle special dietary needs almost every day. We don’t print a special menu to limit what a guest may have. We work with individuals to plan their meal so their experience will be the best possible. We offer true vegetarian and vegan meals and will address any dietary concern. Menus can be found on our website—jimmysopelika.com. In short, you are the reason we are here. If you want something special, we’ll try to make it for you. In every case, remember that good food takes time to prepare. Jim welcomes guests as if in his own home. We hope you’ll enjoy your visit and return again and again.
Laissez les bon temps rouler!!!
