Description [edit]
A Waukesha classic, Jimmy's has been in the pizza business since 1946 and has been selling its signature dish -- the Ponza Rotta -- since the 1970s. The Ponza Rotta is a deep fried calzone and it's the main reason so many Waukesha natives head straight to Jimmy's when they return home for the holidays or other special events. The restaurant received a special mention from the BoDeans in the liner notes of the group's 1986 breakout album, "Love and Hope and Sex and Dreams."
