This local Mexican canteen had decent Tex-Mex style entrees, excellent margaritas, and really never-ending bowls of chips and salsa. Attentive service. Clean facilities. A nice evening.

Mesquite has the basic mexican menu, always fresh and hot, management is friendly, service is quick. It can get very crowded both lunch and dinner; we go early.

If you find yourself in Jackson, and you love Mexican food. Stop what you're doing and make your way to Mesquite. I am a flight attendant and when I come home, this is my first stop. Great food and a frozen margarita that will put you on your butt (in a good way).
