Great selection of original Mexican food. Very reasonably priced. Excellent guacamole and margaritas. Service is very friendly and quick. Very casual place. You will not be disappointed. PS: has a mini supermarket attach for some Mexican provisions.

went here after reading other reviews. This little gem is tucked away in a strip mall location. If you're going for the food this is the place. If it's dinner time be prepared to wait. It is worth the wait. Average wait time was apx. 20 to 30 mins. They also do a brisk take-out business. The staff is friendly... More

I'm from California and I know good Mexican food. Jessys would be good in Ca. I love their Salsa, love their homemade corn tortillas, and overall love their food. Great prices and service too.

Great place to eat on a solo trip out of town. Hated to find out I was charged $2.00 for the chips and salsa. But he one basket and unlimited would have been worth it on the second round. Music was a little loud but I was able to relax and enjoy the meal. Overall great experience.

I have been to Mexico a few times and it is so hard to find authentic food here. Jessy's is the real deal. They have a huge menu with tons of options. Their drinks are equally huge and STRONG. Really great prices and fast service. The rice is seriously the best I have ever had and I have been trying... More

We went for lunch. They have an extensive menu. All the food look delicious. Even though the place was crowded the service was very good. The lunch specials were reasonably priced and they gave you good sized portions. I would like to go back for dinner.

Have now gone there twice and enjoyed both visits. Not your typical Mexican restaurant by a long shot. The food is authentic, tasty, and the selection if over the top. Make sure you order the guacamole with your chips as it is as tasty as it comes. I will warn you not to walk past the pastry cases or you... More
