Jimmy's Food Store

4901 Bryan St. Dallas, TX 75206 | East Dallas & Lakewood | 214-823-6180

Location Description:

While Jimmy's first opened in 1966, it wasn't until 1997 when heirs Mike and Paul Diablo decided to focus solely on Italian specialties and imported goods. Before then, the store catered mainly to the area's Latin American population. Now Jimmy's is legendary -- the most heralded Italian market in all of Dallas. It provides food (especially the house-made sausage) to local restaurants, among them, Italian eatery Urbano Café next door. There are many Dallasites who swear Jimmy's is the place. The shop is stocked with an extensive selection of imported Italian wines, domestic, craft and imported beer. There are enough pastas to wrap the globe several times over, and myriad specialty items and meats. Lots and lots of meats.
