For Traverse City, this is the best Mexican restaurant TC has to offer with atmosphere. The only better places are the run in and take out that do not have a liquor license or atmosphere. Jinetes has a great seating arrangement and enjoyable décor. Staff has always been very friendly, attentive and very helpful in recommending which dish I should try out of the 2 or 3 I ask about. I have never been disappointed. Tonight I tried the Burrito Jalisco, due to waiter's choice, and it was perfect since I eat a low carb diet and the only starch was the flour tortilla. However, it was so over stuffed with steak, chicken and shrimp that I had to take 2/3 of it home. My date had the Mexican Pizza and it was over stuffed with an outstanding flavor. Both of our dishes had grilled veggies done very well.
With a Margarita and a 32oz beer, our dinner was less than $45. Drinks are very reasonably priced. Have to agree with other reviews, the Margaritas are not the reason to go here.
Never noticed before, but has several TVs very well placed, so if need a place to watch a sport game and have some great beer and food, then this would fit the bill.
A little difficult to find if not from the area, but worth the search and highly recommend over the other choices in Traverse City.
