Since 1976 Jimbo's Jumbo has served its locally famous steak sandwich. Although now the menu has expanded to a variety of other fast serve food including pizza's whenever I am back in down I head down to Pekin, about 20 minutes from Peoria for a steak sandwich which I first experienced when they opened in 1976.

    i was born in a town like Peoria, except it;s name had an extra 'R' &'T' , along the 'Aapies Spruit'. Interestingly from my old home town, a met a geek from Cape Town of grand Prussian roots, who ended up in your City as an Specialist Anaehtetist, our plans are to meet , hopefully, soon ;-)))
