After the excellent experience at Jimmy P’s Charred, it was a no-brainer that Jimmy P’s Burgers (1201 Piper Blvd #11, Naples) would be my next stop. I allowed all of about 24 hours to pass when I visited.
It took one glance at the menu to know there were more than a few dishes that I needed to try. So let’s see here, maybe the chili, a cheeseburger, wait…there’s homemade pastrami? Ok, then a pastrami sandwich and a hot dog to wash everything down.
I was tempted to add tacos of the day to find what exactly the market price is, but I had already overstepped my stomach boundaries.
The chili was very meaty and precisely what I needed to get my motors running. They get extra points for serving it with oyster crackers.
Before you even think it, I did not try the fries, coleslaw, or bag of chips. I took them back to the lair I was staying at in Marco Island with my family.
The wagyu dog had some grill marks, which equal extra flavor in my book. I slathered some yellow mustard on it and was good to go.
Jimmy P’s Pastrami Talk
The pastrami sandwich comes with swiss cheese, which I didn’t mind at all. I’m not a pastrami sandwich purist, plus Swiss is one of my favorites cheeses. You won’t get any complaints from me.
Now that was a great sandwich.
The 8 oz. cheeseburger was ground in-house and served medium, which has all the beginnings of a real burger love story. The bun looks abnormally large in the picture, but I don’t remember thinking that when I was eating it, so maybe it was an optical illusion.
There’s a jalapeño burger with a jalapeño spiced beef patty and pepper jack cheese as one of their pre-set burger selections. I’m kicking myself for not trying it.
There was also a Swiss burger with caramelized onions, Swiss cheese, and a Burger Sauce on marble rye bread. I’m going to go out on a limb and say this is their version of a patty melt. Again, another fellow I should have tried.
If you haven’t noticed, I’m trying to build a solid case in my head to return to Jimmy P’s Burgers. Well, it’s happening sooner than later.
