Jimmy Carter's Mexican Cafe *

Mexican food without the border patrol
Traditional with a little tackiness make Jimmy Carter's a great Mexican dining experience without having to travel the extra few miles over the border.

    Mexican food with a touch of gay
    Much like the Brian's location near Uptown, this restaurant benefits from the cruise factor, which elevates the otherwise standard (but reasonably-priced) Mexican fare. Because Jimmy Carter's is directly across from the uber-gay Park Manor Suites and just a block away from the mature homo dive The Caliph, the presence of gays in this section of Bankers Hill is usually sufficient to cause Grinder to crash. Breakfasts on the mornings after popular bar nights can be as cruisy as evenings (again, like Brian's in Hillcrest).
