We found Jessy's our first week moving to Virginia Beach. It is the best mexican cuisine in the area. Hands down. And you cannot beat their lunch special either.

Everything is fresh - no frills - amazingly good food.

The restaurant isn't pretty but it has it's own charm. We love after eating walking around the tienda. Never know what you will find in there.

We have since moved away but miss Jessy's all the time. Would recommend this to anyone who loves good authentic Mexican food. You will not be disappointed.

Suggestion: If you are thinking you are ordering "the white sauce" at Jessy's - you are visiting the wrong restaurant.

Went for lunch with some friends. Excellent food. Daily specials are a steal! I had the tacos. ($2 each a' la cart) Large selection of very authentic Mexican food and extremely nice waitstaff. Our waitress must have been new. All in all. WORTH THE TIME to check this place out!

Living here and loving true mexican food isn't always a good match. Since I found Jessy's it is the ONLY place I will go for Mexican and I love it! It's a bit out of the way but totally worth the drive! Haven't had anything bad there and enjoy going into the market attached to get items. This is the real deal!!!! It's not fancy, but I'd rather have fantastic authentic food then decor that's fancier and not so great food!!

I've lived in Mexico and this place is awesome. Handmade corn tortillas! They even have three kinds of guacamole. The Jamaica (hibiscus drink) is very good. Even the rice is very tasty. The decor is eclectic hole-in-the-wall, but that just makes it more authentic. I would eat here more often if they weren't 3000 miles from my home.
