Jimmy Carter's Mexican Cafe Restaurant Review

: Jimmy Carter's Mexican Café is a colorful yellow cantina in Bankers Hill offering affordable fare. Diners enjoy hefty portions of Mexican and American food, a cut above coffee shop standards. Handsomely arranged plates almost sag under the weight of such copious breakfasts as buckwheat pancakes, chicken-fried steak or country-style ham with eggs, and a variety of Mexican specialties like huevos rancheros and chilaquiles. At lunch, sandwiches, salads and daily specials hold down the fort. Dinner favorites arrive as chile verde pork and chicken mole. Grilled yellowtail tacos is another satisfying dish. Affable staff doesn't skimp on smiles, and the setting is festive.
