A fun place to eat Mexican food

El Jarrito's is a fun place to eat. The décor is really decorated Mexican style and the food is very good. The service is good and friendly and the prices are reasonable. They have a variety of choices on the menu to choose. I would highly recommend El Jarrito's for good Mexican food..

Waitress makes you wait a bit to have you seated down.. when you are the only table/people. The food was pretty good except it had hard pieces of corn on the rice. The food was missing flavor.

Nice Mexican atmosphere and friendly staff. Again the portions are on the large side. Unless you're a big eater share an Entree.

The service is the best ive ever seen. You are seated FAST. Drinks FAST. And they dont like to let you wait. It is decorated nice and the menu is HUGE!!!! Plenty to pick from but anything you pick is gonna be awesome. A hidden gem for sure. It should have a higher rating!!! Great margaritas!

Mexican is my favorite food and I loved El Jarrito! Fresh guacamole made at our table - can't beat that. Large portions cooked just right. I had the chicken flautas and they were excellent. We enjoyed our leftovers the next day :). The service was good and the over-the-top decor makes for a festive environment. I will visit again the... More

When I first pulled up I wasn't sure if they were even open. On a Saturday night at 8:45 p.m you would think more than two cars would be in the parking lot. I had to walk in to make sure they were open while my family stayed in the car, no signs or times on the door to let... More

Service was a little slow at first. Table was dirty. Waitor was nice. Food was decent but not amazing. Nothing against these people, they were kind. But it really was just average food like you'd get in any mexican restaurant. Bill came out to 70 bucks for 4 of us.

This is the best Mexican food I have had in a long time. The service was great and it's located in a very convenient area close to work. Absolutely LOVE their chips and salsa. Their Chimichangas are delicious. Love this place!!

My husband and I stopped in April 25 2014 while traveling through and man oh man we wished we never did! Indescribably horrible food from the beef enchilada which was covered with a red sauce that tasted like the liquid out of a can of spaghettios, the limp chalupa oozing with watery bean spread to the nauseating cheese sauce that...

My husband and I love Mexican food. Since going to the El Jarrito Mexican Grill we decided immediately that this place is our new "go to" place. Everything we have had is delicious and the service has been impeccable.
