                  Fans of the eclectic have a safe haven at Jimmy Carter's Mexican Cafe. As the name suggests, there is a healthy dose of Mexican cuisine. Authentic dishes brought together by Jimmy, in his quest to make good regional Mexican dishes, and chef Dulce Huicochea. With her assistance, Jimmy has brought a domain of delicious sauces to his dishes. But just because the Mexican food is so popular does not mean no room is left for and the American breakfast. These traditional mainstays have a place as well.

                  And thanks should goto Jimmy for working so hard at making Jimmy Carter's Mexican Cafe an authentic and local destination. A native San Diegan himself, he makes sure that local vendors fill his place with the freshest ingredients around. In fact, everything is farm fresh, minus a few chipotle peppers, and you would be hard pressed to find a can in the kitchen. Overall, you can taste the success in using such ingredients. If you have not made your way to Jimmy Carter's, it should definitely be on the list next time a Mexican craving needs to be filled.

                  Yes, JC's has moved to 5th Avenue in Hillcrest and the building may not be as quaint and charming as the old location, BUT, they have done some major work on the interior and exterior of the new location and it looks fantastic. and MORE IMPORTANTLY, the food is still just as good as ever!!!! Love the food here!

                  I completely agree with the positive review. However, it refers to the old JC's location on Washington. That location is closed, and sadly, so too is all the good food that was found there.

                  Jimmy Carter's Mexican Cafe is one of the best Mexican restaurants in San Diego! Everyone I take there loves it. The chicken burrito is awesome, as are the enchiladas and the pork tamales. You really can't go wrong here if you're looking for good food. The place is simple, not fancy, but the food is the best!
