The familiar voice of Jimmy Collins bellowing, “Welcome to Jimmy’s! How are you doing?” is part of the reason Jimmy’s Round-Up Cafe & Fried Pies has become a southside institution while attracting customers across the region for giant yeast rolls and fresh country cooking.
Every customer who walks through the door at 1301 SW 59th St. receives a hearty greeting from Collins. On the off chance he’s not there, a server will fill in.
First-time customers receive a free fried pie with their first meal and get a card for a free half-order of chicken-fried steak (which is the size of a large dinner plate) or catfish dinner to be redeemed within 10 days. On their second visit, customers get a coupon for a free breakfast.
