All of our meats, potato salad, cheesy potatoes, baked beans, and coleslaw are gluten free. Sauces are gluten free as well. We have delicious apple and peach cobblers and a gluten free chocolate chip cookie that is amazing. For those with allergies, our sauce has tomato and onion as well as our beans. Onion powder is in everything from the seasonings. Cobbler has very little almond extract for those allergic to nuts.

What people are saying:

  1. Iron Chef says:

    I love Jimmer’s! I usually get it to go, although they do have an awesome wood table in the dining area.

    Fat Boy Tacos are delicious… they have cheesy potatoes and BBQ brisket wrapped inside a thick tortilla. I’m also a big fan of the Three Meat Combo, which has beef brisket, pulled pork, smoked turkey and 2 sides.

    For the 2 sides I usually get the baked beans and potato salad. The potato salad is really special… it has some sort of secret ingredient that I can’t quite make out what it is. Anyone else know or care to guess?

    • I have heard alot of good things about this place! never been but can’t wait til I can make a trip from Oklahoma to Colorado to try it all out! Family owed and I happen to know that all of them are great and wonderful people!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Jimmer’s is one of my favorite places to eat in Cortez. I started off hooked on the brisket, but then I tasted their turkey and then I tasted their burgers and fries! They have great sauces and the best Ranch dressing ever. Their staff is always friendly and this has got to be one of the most beautiful restaurants in town. All the way around, you’re gonna love this place!
