Jimano’s Pizzeria Celebrates Official Grand Opening


Jimano’s Pizzeria celebrated its official Grand Opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday, October 23. Members of the Santee Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors were on hand to celebrate with owners Matt and Bernadette Miller, Manager Jason McCarty, and the entire Jimano’s team. Although the restaurant has only been open a few short months, the Millers have already stepped up as part of the community. Just two days before the grand opening, the restaurant hosted a fundraiser for Ryan O’Dell, a young Santee boy recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. That effort brought in around $2000 to help the family with medical costs and other expenses.

I had the chance to try out one of Jimano’s deep dish pizzas and definitely enjoyed it – great flavor and just enough spices to give it a nice kick. Several people there were raving about a beef sandwich that comes smothered in melting cheese and stuffed with jalepenos – definitely on the “to try” list.

Jimano’s Pizzeria is located on Mission Gorge Rd. in the center across from the Post Office. Check them out soon.

    This restaurant has gone BANKRUPT and has left all it’s employees unpaid. The owner Matt Miller is not responding to any voice mail messages and has made no attempt to contact the employees. The next stop is the Labor Board. How can you stiff your employees Matt. It’s not only illegal, but a very low thing to do to all those who helped you and supported you and worked hard for you.

      According to the Jimano’s Pizzeria home office, there was a three-week delay in payments, but all of the employees have since received their pay.
