I love burgers, so when I heard that Jim & Rob’s Fresh Grill restaurant made a grass-fed Angus beef burger from our own local Ojai Valley Watkins Ranch, I had to check it out.

While burger munching I saw the menu board that boasted a variety of tacos, burritos, quesadillas, salads, soups and sandwiches. Jim & Bob’s motto: “Where we don’t serve fast food – but healthy food as fast as we can.”

Rob Tucker was in high school when he me Jim Gresham who hired him to work in his grocery store. After college, Rob worked for various restaurant organizations, till Jim gave him a call and asked if he wanted to open up a restaurant with him in Ojai. Seemed like a good idea to Rob, so 19 years ago Jim & Rob’s Fresh Grill was born, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Did I mention they also have a children’s menu that includes grilled cheese and corn dogs and, for the grown-ups, a full bar? Yes, a full bar! So if you want a burger and beer, or a taco salad with a martini in a fun, no fuss, casual atmosphere, drop by, take a table inside or out and enjoy.

I asked Rob what they would be serving at Taste of Ojai, and he said a variety of mini tacos, then had his chef whip me up a couple. Fresh and delicious, made as fast as they can!

As you stroll from booth to booth across the golf course green, don’t miss the offerings from Jim & Rob’s Fresh Grill. You’ll be happy you did.
