Twain Harte surprisingly good.

Went there on a whim. There were 10 of us and we we're accommodated quickly for a Saturday night. Employees were very friendly and knowledgable. The food came out fast and hot. Very tasty and affordable. I would definitely go back.

Worst Mexican food I've ever had. Don't know how they can make it so bad. Even the kids didn't like and they aren't that picky. Anyplace else in town would be better.

Sadly this used to be the best. But over the past few years it has slipped badly. Food quality is gone as is service. So very sad

Not a fan! Love the one in Manteca. The guy that seated us said he would give us free bean dip because I mentioned the El Jardin in Manteca, but he never came back. Placed our order only to find out they ran out of rice and silverware. Had to wait for the silverware to be washed. Bean were so... More

What once was good....then went to adequate....and now is terrible. Young, untrained staff, no visible leadership, disorganized, poorly kept, just plain bad attitude....as for the food...in a word, awful...the Chile Rellano is made from canned chillies, awash is mediocre sauce and quite small. The shrimp cocktail (usually a wonderful Mexican preparation) is made from bay shrimp. Rice and beans were... More

We are locals in the area and have eaten at El Jardin on many occasions. The service and meal we had tonight was VERY disappointing. Our waitress was the rudest waitress we have ever had at a restaurant. There was no interaction, no smiles, the only thing she was good at was throwing are plates in front of us. The... More

We've been here several times over the last few years. It's not the absolute best food ever, but it's definitely good and also good for quick take-out. We really like their chicken mole and the Cadillac Margaritas are delicious. Would recommend!

This is our local Mexican place to eat. Can't say it is the best I've ever had but am totally satisfied with the quality, taste and presentation of the dishes ordered. The staff are always pleasant. I had a birthday party for family and they prepared delicious food that was not expensive - enjoyed by all.
