Why in the hell would Ginos want to steal that recipe ? High School spaghetti sauce is better than that garbage . Jims is without a doubt the most over rated place to eat in Huntington . Th only thing there worth eating is the fish . Its overpriced for one thing and they only take cash ? come on , its not the 50's anymore . I know its done for shady tax purposes but that hurts business .

I've always!!!! Said its because they are doing something shady there. Pleat at fazolis before I eat at Jim's. The owner of Ginos is a good man , me & my wife eat there frequently. Not Jim's tho .

No. Gino's didn't steal Jim's recipe. Gino's is actually GOOD.

Now, Mr. Grant did in fact rip off Subway with his old dba Subs and Salads. Subway sued. They settled. Thus the Gino's/Subway in the west end by Heiner's.

Jim's tastes like sh*t. The only reason it still exists is because, for some reason, some assh*les in this city want to act like it's f*cking 1953 or some shit when it isn't.
Gino's is pretty universally the f*cking bomb though.
no it dont

Jim's sauce tastes like ketchup and sugar, it's disgusting! Gino's sauce however it delicious. I say that both as a customer and a former employee. And as many of you know if you have worked somewhere and you continue to eat there, it must be good. and clean! Why do people have to start stupid rumors like this? Can we not be proud of a successful business owner? Thank you Kenney for your wonderful food and service!

Jim's sauce is actually more similiar to "Cincinnati Chili" than anything else. Some love it, many do not ..I'm a fan.

They do pull some shady book keeping though with the no credit cards and only hand written receipts. Profit margin on those $8-$10 plates of spaghetti has to be pretty incredible.

Why would you ask that? Did the Gino's spaghetti taste like pus or ass?

Dishes at Jim's have to be sandblasted to remove the sauce stain.

I have to agree that I would not understand why anyone would want to steal Jims spagetti sauce recipe. I give it to Jims, that they have made a good buisness on a very low quality sauce and thumbs up to them for that.
