I moved to St. Thomas a few years ago and was thrilled to find Bella Jack's. I'm a native of Houston, TX, and was raised in a Mexican neighbourhood. The seafood chimi is a favourite, and the enchiladas are a close second. The staff is friendly, with fast but not rushed dinner service. We are often greeted by name, and... More

A smaller restaurant but usually busy. Their food is great and service is too. Priced reasonably. Would definitely recommend.

We go to Bella Jacks every other month or so, we have never had a bad experience. Chachis Chimi has gotta be the best thing the menu. But if you dint like chimichangas there's a ton of other delicious choices. Also the piña coladas are the best... This side of Mexico! I definitely recommend BJ's to anyone!

Service was efficient, lots of attention. Chips and salsas were fresh and good. Meal was tasty, decent amount of food. Kid's portions are large. Only negative would be that with the emphasis on Mexican atmosphere one would expect the Margaritas to be served in Margarita glasses rather than regular water glasses and using a Margarita rimmer rather than just table...

Visited Bella Jack's after approximately 3 years. The menu had some many tempting choices. It was very difficult to make a decision. We didn't have to wait to be seated on a Thursday eve at prime dinner time, this was very nice. The restaurant soon was filling up. Some taco chips with salsa arrived along with our drinks and our...

As a regular here I can assure the food is great, service exceptional and staff are efficient and always fun. For those with any negative comments...just remember treat someone as you'd like to be treated. The food is always fresh and piping hot ...yes some may say the taco chips ( made on site) are in small bowls...so finish 'em... More

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
