Jimmychangas, West Palm Beach FL | Merchant Profile

Brothers Jimmy Rivas and Alberto Valdivia have been in the restaurant industry since they were 14 years old. They began their careers as busboys and worked their way up to waiters, bartenders, and eventually owners. Jimmy and Alberto went off to college and continued to wait tables. Alberto earned his Masters in Forensic Accounting while Jimmy studied to be a lawyer. At the age of 27, Jimmy opened his first Asian fusion restaurant, and Alberto was his partner. They opened a second location shortly after opening the first and did well with both restaurants. They got out of the restaurant business for a while; Alberto went back to forensic accounting and Jimmy back to law. After some time Jimmy and Alberto realised their hearts were in restaurants, and decided to open another restaurant, this time a Mexican restaurant called Jimmychangas.While they first opened, Jimmy and Alberto worked on Jimmychangas as a side project and continued to work their day jobs until they got the restaurant up and running. Pretty soon the side project became the main project, and Alberto and Jimmy put all their effort into Jimmychangas.Jimmychangas quickly became a favorite to the locals. Jimmy and Alberto just celebrated Jimmychangas second anniversary and would not have been able to succeed without all the positive word of mouth advertising. Jimmychangas is known for their authentic elevated fast casual Mexican cuisine, including the tacos and salsa. Everything is made from scratch – people come for the freshness and authenticity.Jimmy explained they kept the menu on the smaller side due to the fact that he wanted the customers to try everything. The Al Burrito named after Alberto is their most popular burrito; grilled steak, rice, beans, guacamole, lettuce, tomato, sauteed onions, and serrano peppers. The Jimmychanga, named after Jimmy and the restaurant itself, is a delicious chimichanga made with grilled chicken, lettuce, tomato, onion, salsa verde, rice, and beans, stuffed with cream cheese and guacamole, deep fried, and topped with sour cream.Jimmychangas offers delivery, takeout, catering, and dine-in.
