Excellent spicy cheese dip with blended jalapenos--just the way I like it. Superb ground beef enchiladas, covered in spicy mole' sauce just like I like it. I have not had enchiladas this good since the days of the national mexican restaurant chain Pancho's which also served their enchiladas with spicy mole' sauce. Everyone who sells enchiladas should always cover them... More

We have been walking up to Mesquite for many years now. We have seen it go though a number of management changes and renovations. Honestly it only gets better and better. The latest menu change added some tasty items, one of which I can't spell so I'll just describe it, grilled chicken, pork, steak, shrimp, onions, peppers and cactus (yes,... More

We decided to eat locally since it was Valentines weekend. We didn't want to wait in long lines in the bigger cities. I said why don't we try the Mexican restaurant on the square. We walked in and were immediately seated. The restaurant was busy. We received chips soon after we were seated . The chips to me is a... More

Mesquite Mexican Restaurant is a local favorite for Jacksonites. The food is fresh, the drinks are strong, and the atmosphere is festive. If you ever come throught our little town and aren't in mood for BBQ, try Mesquite Mexican Grill!

My husband and I met friends for dinner at the Mesquite Mexican Grill recently, and because we didn't know anything about where to eat in Jackson, GA, we had to rely on appearance to make our choice. Mesquite is located on the town square of Jackson, making it easy and convenient to find. The menu was quite extensive, and they... More

Unfortunately in many Mexican restaurants most of the dishes taste the same. Not so with Mesquite Mexican Grill. Menu offers standard favorites and many specialty dishes, all distinct and delicious. Excellent service, cool atmosphere, great margaritas, and it's clean as a pin. Great lunch specials as well. We live nearby, eat there often and have never had a bad experience.... More

Barnesville/Jackson, Georgia is not on most travel itineraries. However, if in the area and are looking for Mexican food, then Mesquite Mexican Grill & Bar should not disappoint. I was actually quite surprised and pleased...good food, good service and decent prices. Our group ordered Chiles Poblanos with Chicken, the Pollo (chicken) Gourmet and Shrimp/Steak Fajitas. The latter, although on the... More

Very passable Mexican food. The service was very attentive besides the place being pretty packed. The prices are very good. Atmosphere is bar-ish with TVs everywhere which suited me just fine. I'd definitely repeat.
