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

This place is packed on the weekends. The food is really good. However, due to the big open room......it gets extremely noisy! If you go there frequently enough....the staff recognizes you and are very friendly.

We were in town for the Indy 500. Decided to go here for what had been reviewed as good food. Found the staff as very friendly but the food not so good. Had a tamale that was mainly masa and not much anything else. The taco was on par with Taco Bell. Also, it was very hot and it felt... More

We ate here for lunch on a Sunday and had a great meal. Fantastic salsa, fantastic food. Plenty of room for large groups. Wait staff was super friendly, helpful, patient, and efficient. Wide variety of offerings on menu, including some American fare basics like chicken nuggets and fries (kids menu).
