Traditional style with a little camp makes 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).

      Love it !
      I've been here numerous times. It's extremely gay friendly. The staff is great, and the food is fantastic. Very reasonable prices.

      Wonderful Small Restaurant!
      I've dinned here twice and both times I was welcomed and made to feel at home. Very Trans/gay friendly, and in a family atmosphere. The prices are good, the portions are BIG! I could only eat half my burito!

      They serve good food, low cost, and great service. Not bad for a small restaurant.
