Because You Can Get Great Italian Food Here


Like most people in Dallas, we bemoan the lack of good, affordable Italian restaurants in North Texas. For a great Italian meal, then, we do our own shopping at Jimmy’s Food Store, the East Dallas institution. When Jimmy’s was rebuilt after a 2004 fire gutted the store, the owners decided to stop pretending to be a full-service grocer and concentrate solely on offering meats, cheeses, pastas, sauces, wine, and other Italian items you can’t find anywhere else in Dallas. On a recent trip, we walked the store with co-owner brothers Mike and Paul DiCarlo to find the ingredients for a perfect Italian dinner.
