We never think to go much outside of Denver but did find the drive to Commerce City worthwhile for this dining experience. The staff were friendly and the food was delicious. The menu has a a nice variety of Mexican cuisine. It's difficult to find good Enchiladas that don't taste like the frozen dinner ones. I enjoyed the Enchiladas here.

I stop here rather often, as it is quite convenient. And, the food is good, the process not too high, and it is a family atmosphere. I would wish that they would turn up the heat in the winter.

I'd definitely go again. The only part of the meal that was sub-par was the salsa. It was very flat and flavorless. Otherwise, the food was good. The fajitas were good, the enchiladas were made with white meat chicken, and tamale and chile rellano were both well received. 3 entrees, 2 margaritas, and two beers were just over $70 dollars.

We have been loyal customers for 15 years. The service has always been above average. The food however has been going downhill for the past few years. Something has changed in the chile and salsa. There has been an increase in the amount of corn used in both the chile and salsa. Overall the quality of the food is at... More

I am been dining at El Jardin for since it opened in the 1980's. The food is always great and the service just as good. The green chile is definitely one of the best you will find. They have catered many of my family events from my wedding in 1990 to my son's wedding earlier this year. This family owned... More

Went to El Jardin Friday with the crew. As usual they did not disappoint. I had the seafood enchiladas and it was great. This is one of the best Mexican restaurants in the Denver area. El Jardin is highly recommended!!!!

The menu is very good and has the expected menu items but also a number of items that are due spotlights including their smothered... More

We dined at El Jardin last Saturday. The restaurant was very busy. We were greeted as old friends and seated quickly. Chips and salsa arrived immediately there after. Beverly was our server and did a fantastic job through all the phases of our dining experience. We both had beef Burritos. They were generously filled with beef and other requested ingredients....

El Jardin restuarant is just ok. The prices are a little on the high side. The food lacks some flavor and the portions are on the small side. Servers are friendly and courteous. The specials are really pretty good. I would recommend their Green Chili.
