This review really comes belated because we've been enjoying JJ's for many years now. While there on our last visit to Door County, I noticed that they weren't in the top 5 on trip advisor...truly, I was shocked. We never miss a chance to dine there when in Door County...we look forward to it! It's the best Mexican in the county, hands down. Best nachos, love their salsas, really everything we've ever had, we love. It is always busy, especially in the summer. They have two sites..one in Sister Bay, one in Jacksonport. Both are wonderful. Friendly staff, great bartenders, fun atmosphere. Casual dining at its best:) For fine dining try,"The Waterfront" (owned by JJ as well) excellent food and beautiful sunsets!!

Last night had another fine Mexican meal at JJ's. Terrific Margarita's made it feel a lot warmer than the 5 degree temperature outside.
They make wonderful fresh guacamole and salsa, too.

During a recent weekend at the Clearing / Ellison Bay, we asked the Clearing Visitors Center volunteer for suggestions for dinner. My companion was feeling "Mexican" and the lovely volunteer said JJ's had good margueritas. Looking for good local food highlights is always fun. Let's say that the locals LIKE JJ's too and on a Friday night, they were walking their talk and it was busy. We had arrived early enough to get a table for four of us. The menu offered a nice variety and among the four of us, we sampled a hearty salad, tacos, a burger and one of their soups for the evening, Pumpkin. The soup was very good. The waiter, a Keanu Reeves look-alike with an enviable tanned look, was more on the stoic side and very business like. He was efficient. The food overall was good and although the room rose in noise level and conversation did become more difficult as more people came in, the evening was a fine taste of local offering.

Hubby & I were hungry, so decided on this place for a quick bite to eat. While its billed as a Mexican, it's really two venues under one roof. Mexican/American food and Bar. I had the portobello sandwich which was excellent. It was later in evening, we had no wait, and just enjoyed the very casual atmosphere. It's someplace you could watch a game and have a few beers. Nothing fancy and prices reasonable.

We clearly had a different experience. Service was prompt and friendly. I had the house-made guacamole and chorizo quesadilla; he had the whitefish fillet and side salad. Everything was fresh and tasty. A bit overpriced in my humble opinion, but it is Sister Bay after all. We left happy and will return.
