Painted across the ceiling is a map of México as it was during the days when Spanish galleons journeyed yearly from Manila to Acapulco, and English and Dutch pirates waited behind Land’s End to waylay them. Mexican and American comfort food specialties are the focus at the pirate-themed Jacks Bar & Grill. One might think the food and drink almost an afterthought, but there’s no denying Jacks serves tasty, generously portioned fare like nachos, burgers, and baby back ribs at affordable prices.
The Jacks Burger is a perennially popular option—topped with bacon, blue cheese, portobello, and an onion ring, and served with a side of French fries. We also love the arrachera (flank steak), rib-eye, New York, and filet mignon. All entrées include a choice of sides—nopales (cactus salad), baby carrots, grilled onions, sautéed mushrooms, and baked potatoes, to name but a few. Kids love pirates, so there are also plenty of lunch and dinner offerings geared toward the little ones. Marina Golden Zone, Cabo San Lucas Marina, Cabo San Lucas. (624) 145-6011, www.goldenzonecabo.com. Daily noon to 11 p.m. All major credit cards and vouchers accepted.
