Jimmy’s Taco’s quietly debuts in Ybor City

When the owner of Dysfunctional Grace, my personal favorite shop in Ybor City, recommends a taco joint, I make a point to go. Welcome Jimmy’s Tacos to the historic neighborhood!

The popular food hub has popped up at markets all over Tampa Bay, including St. Pete Beach’s booming Corey Avenue Market. So, what’s makes Jimmy’s so special?

Start with the Oaxacadilla featuring Oaxaca Cheese in a flour quesadilla served with a side of sour cream or pico de gallo.

From there, the menu is short and sweet. I’m a big a proponent of shrimp tacos, and Jimmy’s offers arguably the best in the area. Indulge in grilled Gulf shrimp tacos on blue corn tortillas topped with mango salsa.

I’m a sucker for a good Cuban sandwich, and while I haven’t tried the one at Jimmy’s, the excellence of the rest of its menu gives me faith.  Jaimie’s Cuban is made with roasted pork, layered with ham, Swiss cheese, pickles and yellow mustard.

The new taco joint is located at 1604 N 17th Street. A ribbon cutting ceremony is set for January 3 from 11:30am-10pm.
