Administrative history

Jumbo's Restaurant was a local institution in the Liberty City neighborhood of Miami. Owned and operated for 59 years by the Flam family, the diner was one of the first Miami restaurants to integrate, hiring black employees and allowing black customers to eat in the same dining room as white customers. It remained a popular favorite for locals, including politicians, throughout its history.
