Since 1991

Jimmy Carter’s Cantina is the place you never knew you wanted to be. The bar itself is a cozy, comfortable and welcoming. We offer a small selection of local brews from Stone and Lightening breweries as well as a healthy selection of spirits. As the business in our bar matures, we are transitioning away from bigger micro-labels to smaller-batch liquors and distributors.

Made with freshly squeezed lemon/lime juice with a hint of agave syrup, our hand-crafted margaritas are easily the best margaritas in town! Not a fan of traditional margaritas? Be sure to try our one-of-a-kind Spicy Serrano or Crisp Cucumber Margaritas. Feeling adventurous? Ask one of our talented mixologists to craft something to your taste… we love to create new drinks that aren’t advertised on the menu.

We offer Happy Hour 7 days a week from 4-8 p.m. in the bar! Our Happy Hour menu includes smaller, bite-size portions of our most popular food items as well as discounted prices on our most popular drinks. Be sure to stop in to take advantage of San Diego’s best Happy Hour!
