I am their # fan...Years ago I was raised to buy my meat from there.Where it's located, there once was a Rice Grocery Store that was on the same street as Johnson's Funeral Home. We would walk and shop at Jim's. Well that was almost 20 years ago, now with a awesome husband and 3 hungry & gifted but still growing young men our income isn't getting any larger.The entire staff treats you with a smile and there's always plenty of laughter. They make you feel like part of the family. Once you drive up, there is always a friendly greeting from the most sweetest cashier's I've ever met especially Ms.Kim. Every single person in the meat department deserves bonus pay but the entire staff deserves raises.Their Homemade Boudain and Dirty Rice from Ms Annie or Mr Johnny is to die for. During the holidays I 've gotten my fried turkeys from here..order early so you won't miss out. The meat is always fresh and of great quality especially their steak.Buy the steak you won;t be disappointed. I never am.The prices aren't so bad compared to the only 2 grocery stores (Fiesta and HEB) when sometimes you can't get there. I love grocery store in walking distants and Jim's the place.I now reside in SW Houston Alief area but once a month I make it my business first to drag my sister along for her household. She purchases a #4 meat pack, she loves it but I purchase a #10 meat pack...that's a lot of meat. I need and must have meat (nearly 70lbs)like this for my growing family. I can't say enough about the place other than to say Thank You to every employee at Jim's.For the record, Personally I feel Mr Jim's (or the owner)really treat his staff with respect & fairness because it shows in their attitudes daily once you enter this store. It's always a pleasure shopping there and knowing these days there are still down-home neighborhood grocery store that still care about their own staff, customers and community. At Jim's...They really Care!!! (Hint:You should use this for your slogan). I AM ONE SATISFIED CUSTOMER...they deserve 5 STARS because that's what they are. Respectully;All Smiles; Kimberly Lott-CASTLEBERRYand family please be blessed.
Great store! It's a few hundred feet from our door, so those of us who work at channel 13 buy of lot of things there. Bakery, deli, salad bar, produce, sushi - all very good. We buy lots of plants and flowers there. The discount counter is great and the seasonal savings is terriffic as they make down their goods up to 50% off and usually handle only quality merchandise. We just bought a nice patio furniture set for $ 200, marked down from $ 400, that was much nicer than the ones on clearance at Home Depot that cost $ 600! After Christmas sales are super and their wine selection is outstanding for a grocery store. We have bought a lot of kitchen accessories, plates, etc; over the years the store opened. I'm a big fan of their manager's specials in the meat section. They are always meat nearing expiration date, just like most supermarkets these days. The difference is that because it's an upscale store, the quality of meat on clearance is often exceptional. We just had 2 N.Y. strips last night the equal of most good resturants and the meat cost us less than $ 9.00. Altogether a very good shopping experience in a safe, crime-free area, well lighted with security and a number of other interesting shops on the parking lot area. You ought to try it!
This particular HEB store is new to my neighborhood that was served by two other major grocery stores. In the past, we were inconvenienced into using the "Other Stores", where cleanliness, incorrect prices and customer service were often misrepresented or lacking altogether. The new HEB store is a warm and welcome sight, giving new choices and opportunities to our neighborhood and it's customers. Recently my wife and I needed several things, after dark and with a light misting rain falling. We decided to stop in for the needed items and were met by a smiling employee in uniform, with an umbrella and were walked to the front entrance. A manager observed my looking unsuccessfully for an item, and said, "If you want something that you do not see here, please let me know and we will order it and keep it in stock". These things, I must say are above and beyond traditional Customer Service! I recommend this company to any and all. You are a true asset to this neighborhood! Thank You, HEB
