Our first visit, We had a great dinner, I had the fish and chips were great. They have American and Mexican food, our group mixed between both and everyone enjoyed. The Fries are really good, Recommend giving them a try when in Sister Bay.

A VERY popular Door County Mexican restaurant! Good Mexican fare, excellent margaritas. Nightly specials. Excellent American menu as well. Try the walleye sandwich.Good! Homemade French fries, too - not frozen. Be prepared to wait for a table during the summer evening hours unless you arrive before 5:00. The wait staff won't take your dinner order until that time, though. A... More

Stopped here for supper. Found a great Mexican/American menu. Food was great. Did not have any drinks from the bar, but it was packed, so they must be good. Quite a busy place but handled the crowd well. Good service. Have stopped here on many occasions when we travel to Sister Bay.

We visited JJ's for lunch. My husband ordered a house salad for $5 and a burger. I had the cobb salad. The house salad had several pieces of old white lettuce ends in it and it was not a very large salad in the first place. He only ate about 2/3 of it since some of it was not edible.... More

We went here for dinner with our extended family. The menu offers both Mexican and American dishes. I order the tacos, beans, and rice and it was full of flavor. Our toddler ate all of her mac & cheese, which was served in a dinosaur bowl. Be aware that they place is often loud and packed...in a positive lively way.... More

We ate dinner here two nights. This place is fun and very casual. Menu is very extensive. Service is fast and friendly, food was great. We had the broiled whitefish and fried perch both nights. Prices are reasonable. Eat here, you'll like it.

Had excellent food and drinks. Double 2 tacos were great. Best rice I have ever had. Excellent flavors and a nice kick. My wife had the burrito grande and loved it.

We visited on Friday August 7th. We had a group of 9 of us (4 adults and 5 kids). It was very, very busy/packed and loud. (Might have had something to do with rainy weather.) Unfortunately, there was not much area or room to wait. There was a bar area that was filled with people sitting and standing. They also... More

Food is ok, but boy, is this place packed. It's a Door County mainstay, but sometimes food is good, and sometimes not.
