In 1949, restaurant owners Jim and Margaret Knudson went to a friend's home for dinner where they ate their first taco. Jim was so convinced that this tasty product would have a universal appeal that he began to develop his own recipe and eventually made and sold his first taco out of his restaurant "Jimmy's 49er Cafe, in Grass Valley, CA.
In 1954, Jim and Margaret converted a 16-foot trailer into a mobile kitchen. A long-time customer had given Jim the nickname "Jimboy," and so the words "Jimboy's Spanish Tacos" were painted on the sides of the trailer. That summer, the couple towed their newly converted trailer to King's Beach, Lake Tahoe. The response was a bit slow that first year, but Jim and Margaret persisted in their efforts and soon people could not get enough of their tacos. That little taco stand became a favorite of locals and tourists alike and was building quite a reputation. Some very famous celebrities soon became regular customers including the "Rat Pack", Wayne Newton, Lorne Green & Michael Landon.
Jimboys began franchising in 1965 & there are now 40 locations.
