Always lamenting the lack of good Mexican in southwestern Ontario, we tried this place after hearing good things from some London friends. Great atmosphere that reminded us of numerous hole-in-the-wall type Mexican places we've visited elsewhere. The hot sauce table is a nice touch. Service was good, the food arrived fast and very hot, and there wasn't anything left on... More

We LOVE Bella Jack's but the service is usually bad. Today, however, we had a server we have never had ( I forget her name, younger, dark haired girl, very friendly and accommodating. She got us water without an annoyed glare and eye roll and made out dining experience quite enjoyable. The food was excellent as usual. They have THE... More

Really enjoyed my lunch at Bella Jack's. The taco chips and selection of salsa's were a great way to start. I enjoyed the green,hot salsa the best and then ordered the lunch onion and cheese enchilada which was served piping hot with rice and beans. The sauce was flavorful but not overly spicy and the meal was comfortably filling. Lunch... More

My wife and I love fajita's, we try them everywhere and there are #1 on our list. We make the trip at least once every 10 days, we live in London and drive 20 minutes to Bella Jacks on most Friday nights. Almost always busy, so you might have to wait, but worth it. Great salsa, fajita's and the rest... More

Went to Bella Jacks for lunch last week and the special was great. The food was top notch and the atmosphere was authentic. Definitely would go back again.

This is a family owned business and they know how to do it right. They have kept it small so the place is usually packed, but it's worth the wait. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is welcoming. If you ask about the name of the restaurant you'll see why you feel like family here.

We have tried lunch and dinner several times over the past three years. We were kind of smitten with Bella Jack's in the beginning because there are not a lot of dining choices in St. Thomas. By our third visit we started seeing beyond the Margarita's - which are quite good if you ask for yours to be made without... More

Every time we come home to St Thomas we stop at Bella Jack's, whether for "just" Margarita's (the best ever), lightly but deliciously fried calamari or a full meal deal. This time we invited a friend from out of town who had not been there before. Opinion all around? Excellent! Spent two hours eating appies and never did get to... More
