A short trip report -
My wife and I visited Jim Dandy's about a month ago. We had never been, and I needed to run down to Micro Center to pick up some computer schlock, so it was easy, being nearby.
Wet, sloppy, so-so pulled pork, swimming in juice or broth or water in a steam table tray, which caused the bun it was served on to disintegrate. My wife had a huge amount of gristle and fatty material. The basic texture and taste was greasy and oily.
Mac and cheese was "Kroft Dinner" as the Canadians would say. Tasted like stuff straight out of a box.
The greens were decent. Oddly, they were very spicy in spots. I suppose that crushed red peppers are used in the greens, but they overdid it here.
The table sauces were not bad.
The counter help was two unenthusiastic, bored teenagers or young people.
Overall the food was cafeteria grade, indifferently prepared, passionless, mostly inoffensive so called BBQ.
I found a few older reviews here that indicate that Jim Dandy's was once a go-to place after Burbank's closed. I suspect it's gone way downhill. I would not go back to Jim Dandy's. The meat, frankly, sucked. It was like boiled pork.
