Quick service and good food.

Eating here for lunch and the place was pretty empty so I was worried, but it was good. The service was fine and the food came super quick (even by Mexican Restaurant standards). The price was pretty right on competitive and the helping size was perfect.

Stopped here for dinner one night while in Indianapolis. The chips as salsa was a great start and then had the Seafood Chimichanga. It was very good, also the Mexican beer didn't hurt. :) I would have liked to go there another night but we could not squeeze it the same week. Food and service were great, highly recommend!

Stopped here for lunch and was not disappointed. Service was attentive and the food was very good. Nothing hugely different than any other Mom and Pop type Mexican restaurant, but nothing to complain about either.

Based on reviews from other people on a Trip Advisor we went here. It was great and I highly recommend it. It' a little hard to find in a mall but look for Kohl's and drive about halfway down the mall.

This is our favorite Mexican dining in the Indianapolis area.. The food is good and the warm chips and just hot enough salsa are yummy. The price you pay for what you get is excellent and the service is quick and friendly..

I go to El Jaripeo for lunch since it is close to my office, plus I like the staff and the food. I especially like seeing Mexicans and others from Central and South America enjoying it because it gives me a good impression of the authenticity of the food (realizing that there are likely some adjustments for the tastes of...

This place is great. The wife and I have been going there at least twice a month for years. Great margaritas, pork carnitas special and the tacos are great, shrimp anything is great, although sometimes a bit too spicy for me--so I just ask for them to tone it down and they do. The manager until a few weeks ago... More

First of all , I am a vegetarian food fan, so I order their vegetable fajitas, it was great, then I order spinach casadia, I was good too, I didn't like cheese casadia because it was way too much cheese in that...
