Smiling Jacks is a small, independent Tex -Mex-style licensed restaurant, situated on Stirling's lively Barnton Street. We opened in 1995, and specialize in home-cooked traditional Tex-Mex food, using the best, fresh local produce. The restaurant itself is brightly coloured, with lively music, and friendly staff, which makes it a popular choice for lunch, dinner or an ideal venue for parties & celebrations. Our menu has an extensive range of appetisers, starters, light meals and main dishes. With a great range of Mexican, and other imported beers, premium Tequilas, Wines, Frozen Margaritas and Cocktails a night at Smiling Jacks is always one to remember!
