We finally made it to Oaxaca Club!
This brand new Mexican Restaurant is located in Downtown Jacksonville Beach, Florida and I have been very curious to try it for a while now. And I’m here to tell you, while somewhat pricey - it’s definitely worth it… Let me explain.
While it might have been a bit more than we were planning on spending, I’m glad we went, and I do think this is literally just the place Jacksonville Beach needs right now.
The food was simply delicious. For appetizers we ordered chips and salsa dip, and for the main entree I ordered the Carne Asada Tacos, minus the cilantro, plus a lemonade. Bryan ordered the same Carne Asada, with the cilantro, plus a side salad. He also ordered an OC Margarita.
So let’s start with the drinks. My simple lemonade for $3.00 and Bryan’s OC Margarita was priced at $12.00. The portion size of the margarita was quite small. So - It will go down fast, especially if you’re as thirsty as we were. We had just come from an exploration hike at Castaway Island Preserve - which you can check out on my YouTube Channel right here!
And if you’re really hungry, here’s where some of the cost will add up. I was absolutely fine with my entree - but if you’re expecting your tacos to come with refried rice and beans, that is not going to happen here at Oaxaca Club. Sides are an extra charge and it can add up fast. The charge for a side of rice is $5.00, separate from the cost for refried beans which is also a $5.00 charge.
My steak tacos cost $14.00 - that comes with two steak tacos on corn tortillas, zero sides. The tacos were FABULOUS! However, the simple math means if I wanted to add on a side of refried rice and beans, my entree would have been $24.00.
We did order the tortilla chips and salsa - at a cost of $6.00. The chips were phenomenal, freshly made, and a beautiful presentation with the choice of three salsas to dip in. But again, usually chips are included at pretty much every other Mexican restaurant I can think of. So, that was an ‘extra’ $6.00 if you want the chips.
So it was a bit more than I was expecting to pay, as I was assuming I was going to order a plate of tacos, rice and beans included. But you’ll probably love this new Jax Beach local, trendy, upbeat style of restaurant in town!
And all this brings me to the main point of us coming here in the first place - Oaxaca Club is a new LOCAL restaurant. And ‘downtown’ Jax Beach desperately needed more restaurants like this right now, and was the main reason I really wanted to try this place.
I’ve been a Jacksonville Beach area local since 2017. I’ve watched the downtown area at the Beach attempt to grow, get stalled due to 2020, attempt to grow, over and over and over again. I’ve seen restaurants and businesses close up shop, their buildings sit abandoned, an eyesore to the local area. And now, it seems, we are in a real resurgence again. A new local sushi place opened up just a few blocks away, fabulous new hotels are popping up, plus new restaurants. All taking away from the abandoned buildings that once sat vacant, then demolished, with empty fenced-off ground, on prime real estate. It seems these pieces of property are all finally coming to life again. It was sad to see such a fabulous beachfront location in Florida with really slow growth. For some reason, downtown Jax Beach just has had a very difficult time, for certain establishments, to actually grow and thrive.
So I’m really excited about both Oaxaca Club and the new Jekyll Brewing, directly next door - which I’m going to venture over to soon hopefully.
Sometimes, when I see the vacant land all fenced off, and the empty, blocked off pieces of property less than half of one block from the sandy shores of the Atlantic Ocean, I think that Jacksonville Beach ‘Town Center’ doesn’t really know what it wants to be when it grows up. But Oaxaca Club is the ideal and near PERFECT establishment to come into its own, here in our lovely holiday town square - did I mention Deck the Chairs is going on right now?! And that was actually one of the highlights of our meal… We sat outside (PET FRIENDLY!) at Oaxaca, watched a fabulously pink and golden sunset, while our eyes sparkled as the lights of the lifeguard chairs came to life directly in front of us.
While Oaxaca may not be a place I can frequent on a regular basis, it was a most lovely dinner outing, and a real kick-start to the holiday season here at the Beach. And I truly do really appreciate the fact that any restaurant, and/or investor(s), wanted to take the risk that is our small and very undecided and up-in-the-air downtown Jacksonville Beach. I highly recommend trying Oaxaca, do spread the word, and give them a review and a shout-out to your friends and family. Because, while it may have cost more than we were expecting to spend, the ambiance was phenomenal. And to be able to sit and dine - outside - literally in the Town Square of Downtown Jax Beach, watching the holiday magical chairs come to life in front of our eyes during this special time of year, was an experience that I’ve never had in all the years I’ve lived here - and that alone, is priceless.
I love you,
