Camarones are shrimp, and the menu is loaded with them--fish too. There's nothing else to order, except a few meat dishes if you go with someone who can't eat seafood, and chicken nuggets for kids. These are almost hidden, on the back of the menu.
Sunday afternoon at Jesse's is like a vacation, as if you're in some coastal town in Mexico. Families and couples crowd the tables, almost everyone eating ceviche--even youngsters.
Jesse's ceviche really is a Sunday treat--very fresh and tart, piled onto crisp tostadas. The fish ceviche (at the top) is made with basa, cut fine rather than in slivers or chunks.
The long menu includes seafood cocktails, salads, soups and aguachile. Fish or shrimp plates with all the fixings--salad, fries and rice--are just $11.95 or $12.95, a bargain you're not likely to find in fancier parts of town.
Jesse's offers oysters too, along with warnings on the menu and posted on the walls that raw oysters can cause illness, even death, in someone with a weak immune system. So skip the oysters and stay happy with what Jesse's really specializes in, fish and shrimp.
