Jack-N-Grill went up the hill to a new location. Formerly on Federal Boulevard, the little Mexican restaurant not far from DIA is a jumping place that serves authentic south-of-the-border food with no apologies. Enjoy chips and salsa while you peruse the menu and wait for your entrée. Don't look for diet anything on the menu, but expect some real gutsy, spicy offerings with names you probably can't pronounce, but tastes that your tongue will thank you for. Add a margarita to your order and reward your courage with a stuffed sopaipilla afterward. After that, you'll be a fluent fan. -Theresa Ludwick
