Jimmy Carter's Mexican Cafe is an eatery that transcends the normal bounds of a simple restaurant. Instead of just your typical Mexican food restaurant, this amazing venue has become the kind of place where people can gather, share news, relax, drink, dine and feel welcome every time. The amazing ambiance of this restaurant is thanks in part, to Jimmy Carter himself. This amazing restaurateur has a personality that is larger than life, and it has infused the very walls of his restaurant, making it a must-try for both locals and visitors to the area. It all started in 1991 when Carter's love of food inspired him to open his first cafe, but after finding a real lack of authentic and delicious Mexican cuisine in the area, he was again inspired to open this authentic Mexican cafe. Now, many years later, hungry diners can still find the same joyous welcome, vibrant ambiance and stellar food at the 5th Avenue location, which is bigger and better than ever before. Head over today and feast on fabulous fare which includes a variety of hearty and delicious breakfast fare (including dishes from both sides of the border), and lunch and dinner entrees that are designed to please every palate. From the fresh and fabulous Guacamole to enchiladas, burritos, the terrific Tamal, Chile Relleno, the Puerco en Mole, and much more, everything on the menu is well worth trying. Fans of this restaurant will also find other signature dishes on the menu, including what many claim to be the best burgers around. Plus, with a full service bar featuring a variety of local microbrews, a festive and colorful decor, and good food and great times for all, Jimmy Carter's Mexican Cafe is the place to go when craving an outstanding meal, every time!
