Wonderful chips, salsa and queso dip!!

We have been going here for years and just love it! The chips and salsa are the BEST! I could make a meal of them alone, but I almost always get the Chimichanga (probably spelled wrong). It is unique and so delicious.

Its stuffed with chicken or beef. The cactus nachos are great when they remember to rinse the brine off the cactus. Service is average.Large portions.

This restaurant has been around for years and I recently tried it again, a couple of times. The service is good, but the food is still bland, more Tex-Mex than Mexican. There are too many really good and less expensive Mexican restaurants in the Metro area for anyone to waste their money here.

The food was served hot, chips were crisp and fresh. Everything you want a Mexican food at a fair price and above average quality.

Cinco has been our favorite Mexican restaurant in Jackson for many years. The staff are fun and friendly, the chips & salsa are excellent, and their frozen margaritas are simply the best anywhere (careful, they are loaded). The tamales are one of my favorite dishes, but we often just share the Nachos al Carbon appetizer (mixed). They also have one... More

Same old Americanized "Mexican" food. Nothing authentic. If you want cheap eats with bland flavor, it's your place.
