Jakes

Jakes is a steakhouse that features an extensive menu.  Tuesday is known throughout the community for their “Half Price Burger” special and get here early because during this special the parking lot can be overflowing with cars.  They have steak, BBQ ribs, chicken wings, sandwiches, baskets, seafood, flatbread, 7 different salads, soups, fish baskets and the “Jake’s Dawg Paw” is a great appetizer that resembles a Blooming Onion with Bistro sauce.

Fiesta Mexicana

Fiesta Mexicana is a fun Mexican restaurant with 2 locations in Mount Vernon.  Free chips and salsa are served before your meal, they have appetizers and there are over 40 different choices including some really big platters.  Don’t be surprised when your server says “Be Careful, this plate is HOT” because they bring your meal hot from the kitchen.  They also offer a lunch buffet that is very popular.  I personally love their Steak Fajitas for lunch and people really rave about their cheese sauce.

Hunan Garden

Hunan Garden is a popular local Chinese Restaurant.  The egg drop and sweet and sour soups will put a smile on your face here.  They offer lunch and dinner portions of their popular dishes and they have an excellent selection including Sweet and Soup Chicken, General Tso’s Chicken, Chicken and Broccoli, Garlic Chicken, Cashew Chicken, Ting Ting Shrimp, Sesame Beef, house specialties, combinations and more.
