I have been going to Jimboy's Tacos for over 50 years. I first went to the one that was on 16th & U, or V, somewhere around there in the late 50's, early 60's. I also go to the one on San Juan & Madison. If one wants a fairly inexpensive delicious taco, it can't be beat for flavor.

I had lunch on January 29th, the food was fresh. I have been a customer of the Rancho Cordova Jimboy's for over 15 years. I used another groupon with my husband on 2/1 at about 4:00 pm. The food was not fresh, my husband ordered a combo enchilada plate, the rice was dry and the plate was microwaved so long the food was difficult to eat. I will not go to Jimboy's again on the weekend.

Please be consistent with your portions. Also food temperature needs to be a little hotter.

I never get tired of the various items I get at Jimboy's. My only complaint is that I always eat too much. I leave fat and happy. :)

From Our Editors

When Jim Knudson bit into his first taco during dinner at a friend's house in 1949, he knew he had tasted something special. He added the item—which many diners were pronouncing "tay-co"—to the menu at his restaurant in Grass Valley, California. Determined to introduce the food to as many people as possible, Jim and his wife, Margaret, converted a 16-foot trailer into a kitchen on wheels. They adopted the nickname Jim had earned from one of his longtime customers and drove up to Lake Tahoe, where Jimboy's Tacos found its first permanent home.

Locals, tourists, and even members of the Rat Pack flocked to the tiny taco stand for the uniquely seasoned, parmesan-dusted ground-beef taco, the anchor of a growing menu. The family eventually relocated to Roseville, California, where they set up a small taco stand and began branching out to other locations in and around Sacramento.

Today, Jim Knudson’s daughter Karen, the current president of the company, carries on the legacy of taco obsession at more than 40 locations in northern California and Nevada. Guests who arrive early for breakfast might glimpse the cooks slowly simmering beans, mashing avocados into guacamole, and preparing their signature ground beef with trans-fat-free oil. In addition to classic corn-tortilla tacos, the menu holds the mega-size flour-tortilla El Gordo, golden-fried taquitos, and even a taco burger that fuses Mexican and American culinary traditions.
