I did manage to fill up on the three tacos, but I wasn't stuffed. All of them were great. If I go back I might try to see if I can be satisfied with just two. If I can then I'll save about $4. The one thing I don't care for is the high price of a diet soda. While it's a great place to sit and eat, I can save about $3 by getting it to go and eating back at my desk. Or maybe I'll just get water the next time.
Based on what I saw today they had a constant crowd and pretty good traffic, which would indicate a reasonable turnover. It was unusual for us to spend over an hour in Jimmy's; I would suspect that 30 to 45 minutes tops is the amount of time it would take to place an order, eat it, and then leave.
The one question I have is how five major bars can be open on University Blvd between Rouse and the main entrance to UCF. UCF has somewhere between 50,000 and 60,000 students, between the ages of 18 to 22. The drinking age in Florida is 21. Jimmy's, WoB, and Wild Wings is definitely built to appeal to the college age. So, if the drinking age is 21, who from UCF is at the bar? Seniors and graduate students? Are they carding everyone who walks in? I've never believed in the blue-collar age limit for drinking. I've always believed if you're old enough to vote, drive, and die for your country, you're old enough to drink.
