Jimmy Carter’s Mexican Cafe

So, I’m sure everyone has their favorite, as pretty much all Mexican food we’ve tried in San Diego has been, well…fantastic.  Our favorite?  Jimmy Carter’s Mexican Cafe.  We pretty much love everything about it, from it’s colorful decor, to it’s wonderful happy hour, to it’s amazing prices and unbelievable tortilla soup.  Not to mention the enormous portion of chips and three types of salsa that comes free before your meal.

The place is, indeed, named after a bloke named Jimmy Carter, a San Diego native and lover of all things Mexican food.  He, along with his chef, Dulce Huicochia, strive to bring authentic Mexican food to this side of the border.

And they’re doing a great job.  The service is lovely, the place is always packed, yet never with a wait, and the environment and most importantly, the food, can’t be beat.
