Jimmy’s Famous Seafood – Submitted by Trucker Bob

You can get there one of two ways. Park at the TA Baltimore I-95 exit 57 and take a cab or Uber for the 3 mile trip to Jimmy’s Famous Seafood at 6526 Holabird Ave.

Or you can park your tractor and trailer on a side street and walk 150 yards to the restaurant. From the TA, turn left on Boston street then Left as if you were getting on I-95 South. Cross under I-95 and instead of turning L onto I-95 South keep going straight for another 200 feet and then turn left at the traffic light onto Ponca street, which will after a half mile or so curve to the left and turn into Holabird Avenue. Go about a mile and a half on Holabird and Jimmys will be on the left hand side. About 150 feet before Jimmy’s, turn right on Portal street and then another quick right onto Seaforth Street. Follow Seaforth to the end and at the cul de sac, make a U turn, and park anywhere you find a spot for your rig.

This is an industrial street and there may be dropped trailers lining the street. Walk to Jimmy’s and enjoy but do not plan on taking your 10-hour break there. Better to fuel and park free at the TA or park for a fee and take an Uber.
