If your in the mood for a quick, no frills place to eat a Mexican dinner, this is the spot.  The taste of the beef enchiladas de mole were similar to the beef quesadillas.  According to my friend, the menudo was just right. The servings portion are plentiful - its either a to go box or leave very full.Checking in with YELP landed me a small Free horchata.  My suggestion is to drink this concoction after the meal.  Very sweet and will surely clear the palate.  No need for desert.Be careful of the bottomless chips and salsa.  In my view, the salsa is freshly made but the chips are deep fried tortilla.  Making them thick and at times a bit hard to chew.  Servers are attentive and constantly checking to make sure you have you need. Expect to pay as if you ate at Abuelo's.On the way out, Jessy's Tienda is a few steps away.Overall, we all had a good meal.  Not spectacular but good. More...

If you're looking for authentic tacos and Mexican in Norfolk, Jessy's has it. Starting off, their guacamole is the gold standard. I always enjoy it with chipotle sauce added, giving it a nice smoky taste layered in with the fresh avocado, but plain is great too. Chips are made in house and offer a hearty crunch when shoveling  the great guac. If you choose to go the taco route, you'll find the usual options you'd expect from an authentic taqueria, and done very well. It's easy to polish off a plate of three or four in a sitting. I'm also a fan of the Alambre plate-- basically carne asada served sizzling with peppers, onions, bacon, and cheese. If you're looking for a meal to keep you full all day, this is it. Don't be afraid of the house-made hot sauces on the table either. Both are a great complement to whatever you order. Finish it all off with a horchata and you'll leave with a smile. More...

I enjoy their food every single time. I usually get the shredded beef taco but I got the chimichanga today. Amazing!!!! Also stopped by the bakery! !! The wait was a little long but I didnt make a fuss because it was the beginning of lunch time. Staff was friendly but didnt really exceed my expectations...which is fine. I highly recommend this place either way. More...

Jessy’s makes other famous chains seem like Taco Bell! The chilaquiles were amazing. The Mexican Street corn was fresh the seasoning awakens your taste buds! I definitely recommend the huevos rancheros . The tacos with the pork carnitas and the fresh cilantro to die for. The pozole was probably some of the best tasting soup I’ve had in a long time. Make sure you go to the tienda and try the pastries More...

I started off with the Choriqueso at the suggestion of Gabbie, excellent recommendation. Ask for Gabbie when you come. For dinner I had the Alambre-wired steak and if was terrific. I will be back the next one in Norfolk. I was looking for great Mexican and found it. Did I mention, this place was on Diners Dive ins and Dives? I did not know that until I saw Guy's image painted above the bar. More...

We came to Jessys late on Saturday after a few drinks out with friends and were so pleasantly surprised. The food was great and I'm pretty sure they stayed open late just for us. It's definitely a neighborhood gem. We got the California burrito and the shrimp fajitas quesadilla, as well as chips and salsa. The chips were clearly homemade and super crunchy. They were even good next day, when I finished up my quesadilla. Pretty impressive. We love Jessys and will definitely be back. More...

If you've read any other reviews of this place, you'll see that the word "authentic" comes up regularly. I won't disagree whatsoever! This Jessy's location is perfect for dinner before a visit to the beach, which is a short walk or drive away. I had recently been told about this restaurant from a Yelp friend, so I was stoked to have the chance to dine here soon after on a busy Friday night.We opted to sit outside which was nicely lit for a romantic feeling despite the casual environment. As for the food: chips and salsa were on par. For my meal, I had wonderfully flavorful carnitas tacos that made me want to continue eating even after I was full. The meal wouldn't have been complete without a cold beer, and a Mexican popsicle from the adjoining convenience-type store. It was neat to walk over there after dinner to check out the random goodies they sell there. Our server wasn't very attentive, but pleasant.Overall, I would have to return to get a fuller experience, as I didn't eat a ton on my first visit. I also didn't meet any particularly friendly staff to enhance the dining experience. However, it's evident that this place is as authentic as you can get around the area and I would love to return.

The tacos here are incredible. I tried adobada, al pastor, barbacoa and chorizo. The barbacoa was a bit dry but the flavor in all of the others was perfection. Ordered some guacamole which was pretty bland and void of salt and lime but they make their own chips and I am here for it. Definitely will return! More...

Decided to hit up postmates today for a quick snack with the hubby.  I checked out the restaurants that had free delivery at that time (they only stay up for 5 minutes).  I chose this place as it was listed up there and quickly added things to my cart. I got a steak taco, sausage taco, and one of each tamale.  Let's just say I sure cant wait to go in and try more of their food.  Everything was SO good.  We came here from California and have missed the food from there. Well this place has food very similiar if not exactly like California's mexican restaurants. I see people complain about slow service but I recieved my to go order in about 40 minutes...the order itself was ready fairly quickly. More...
