Manuela to the rescue!

Ate here tonight. Food was great from the oven warm chips to the flavorful and tasty taco platter. Our waitress, Manuela, was pleasant, attentive, and attended to our every need. The on duty manager, Johnny, stopped by to say hello and chat just to make sure our evening was perfect. Will be... read more

Brenda H. is an awesome server with outstanding customer service skills. Her smile is warm and genuine. We ALWAYS ask to be seated in her section. The food is equally as good. We go on Thursday's as often as we can.

Desirae is our doctor when we need our medication. She is an awesome bartender/mixologist, server and a great person to know! We love the whole family here. Food and drinks just makes it more special.

We eat here on a weekly basis. Great food and good service. Lakrisha is our favorite server. She is up beat, friendly and very attentive. Manager Johnny always greets everyone with a smile, The green chili has a great taste. Salsa is the best in Denver!

Bad service and worse food. Waitress had a "do not care" attitude. Why is she in the business if she hates her job so much? The food was just as bad. Tasteless and a mushy mess. The service really put a damper on the evening. We will never return. Mexican food restaurants are on every block. You don't need to... More

While I love Armadillos, when it comes to my favorite Mexican food, El Jardin wins. Their Sangrias are YUM and so is their green chile. I always get it on their chicken or sea food enchiladas! I can't say enough about how great this place is and it's family owned!!

This Commerce City landmark features good Mexican food. The quality has always been consistent. Portions are ample and the prices are comparable to other establishments in the area. It can get a bit noisy, but it is set up to handle large groups and family tables. It is popular, especially on the famous Thursday Night Margarita night. Really good margaritas... More

My wife cannot visit Denver without stopping at El Jardin for a chicharones burrito. El Jardin is the essence of Denver Mexican food. Tasty chilies spicy but not hot for the sake of hot. Freshly prepared, not canned refried beans cooked in shortening. Quality meats and cheeses and sour cream. These simple ingredients are prepared with love and combine to... More
