Jimmy Carter’s Mexican Café 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 café, but after finding a real lack of authentic and delicious Mexican cuisine in the area, he was again inspired to open this authentic Mexican café. 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.
