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.

I absolutly love the Mixed Fajitas here! The people are friendly and after you have gone a few times, they remember you and also know what you would like. Sometimes there can be a language barrier, but what Mexican restaurants dont have this? Love this place!

They even make traditional "Queso Fundido" at this restaurant, although I had to request that it be made with chorizo sausag; the menu offers a choice of chicken or beef. I've been there twice now and had the Queso both times, though I understand that the Fajitas are also outstanding. Fresh salsa and chips come with the meal. Enjoy!

El Jarrito is a great Mexican restaurant! We have never been disappointed in the food or the service. The salsa and chips are delicious. There are so many choices for your entrees and all of them are a reasonable price. You get a lot of food, too! The steak fajitas are a must, as well as the chile rellenos and... More
