“Fun, Happy Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

Sat in the sun, had cold drinks, and good food. How could it get better. Fun staff, great atmosphere, and you look out at the ocean. Again, how could it get better.

“Juicy burgers, shrimp cocktails, Martinis...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Jax is just all-round good. Extensive menu, and everything I have tried during twelve years has been very good to excellent. Just the possibility of having an American style shrimp cocktail with red cocktail sauce and a decent dry martini makes life as an expat totally bearable. But mostly we go there for the burgers, of which there are about half a dozen varieties. My fave is the hickory burger. Some people think the wait for a burger is a bit long, often close to 20 minutes, but service in general is swift and attentive. Just have another drink while you wait.

“Good Eat and Drink”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

This American owned bar is a must see. Very good food and excellent drinks. The owner is very personable and will talk to you like he's known you for a long time.

“Best Burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

Went there to watch opening weekend college football games & had a great experience. The service was great, even as they got really packed. They accommodated everyone with whatever game they wanted to watch. Best deals on beer buckets & the burgers were the best on the island...great char-gilled flavor.

“One of My Favs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

We always begin and end our trips to Isla Mujeres at this restaurant. Everything I've tried on their menu from nachos to steak has been great. The deluxe nachos are soooo tasty and are enough for two. Views from upstairs alone are worth the trip and you can count on attentive service.
