What You'll Get

Spaghetti, like a hammerhead shark, is rigid and boring until it’s submerged in water, at which point it quickly springs to life and develops a taste for swimmers. Celebrate this predatory noodle with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Jimmy's Place in Forest Park.

Jimmy's Mediterranean flavormasters furnish plates with a menu of authentic, made-to-order Italian. Start a round of stomach charades with an appetizer of breaded zucchini sticks ($5.99) or stuffed mushrooms ($7.99). Like a hamburgler's satchel, the italian-beef sandwich brims with slices of tender, juicy seasoned meat ($6.25). Card-carrying pasta connoisseurs can indulge in the baked mostaccioli ($13.99), and bird buffs can enjoy chicken marsala with angel-hair pasta ($18.99). Feed an entire table of complete strangers with a large one-topping 16-inch pizza, which can be customized with an array of meat and veggie toppings ($17.50, plus $1 for each additional topping).

  • The eggplant Parmigiana was just as it should be: light breading and moderate cheese, thin slices of eggplant, over mostaccioli. Pasta is always done right – on the lighter side of al dente. – David Hammond, OakPark.com
  • The place's specialty is Cavatelli with Vodka Sauce which I have had and agree that it is excellent. But my favorite dish there is the Bracciole, which is loaded with flavor and is quite filling too. – Rob W., Yelp, 8/29/10

About Jimmy's Place

In Jimmy's Place's kitchen, chefs cook chicken vesuvio in a finely-tuned blend of olive oil, garlic, and Italian seasonings. According to a December 2011 article in the Forest Park Review, this signature dish is a favorite of Food Network star Jeff Mauro, who featured it on his show Sandwich King. The crispy Italian-American meal uses a recipe passed down through owner Jim Jodoin's family—as does the rest of the menu. Years of culinary tradition are written into the housemade marinara sauce that blankets the restaurant's chicken parmesan, the meat that stuffs its housemade ravioli, and the weighty toppings that keep its pizzas from floating up to the ceiling.

Out in the dining room, these meals pair with a distinctly local atmosphere—newspaper clippings and photos of customers line the walls, and bartenders pour drinks at a full bar as flat-screen TVs beam in sports.
