Green sauce/Enchiladas Racheros

Is the tastiest green sauce ANYWHERE! Small authentic Mexican family restaurant, always good friendly service and quiet atmosphere. A great change from the chain food restaurant experience.....

Start with freezer burnt shrimp in a shrimp cocktail. Move on to refried beans with a crust on top with dry beans. Add chips that are hard to chew dipped in a very uneventful odd tasting sauce. Finish with a main coarse that was crusty on top and very odd flavor.

This is a good place for Mexican Food, close to freeway and downtown, this is an out of the way place. They offer a variety of Mexican fare at a good value and the beer is cold. Staff is always friendly and happy when you go in.

Fajitas served sans queso speaks volumes about where you are. It lets you know that youre in a place that at least attempts to represent the authentic aspects of Mexican culture and the food that they are serving. Of course, then you see burritos on the menu and realize that they know they must at least, in some way, appease... More

My husband and I just had dinner there tonight. I suspect that the excellent Tripadvisor ratings are from friends and relatives. We arrived at 7:45 on a Saturday night. We were the only customers in the restaurant. After drinks and dinner we were still the only customers in the restaurant. They had no other business the entire time we were... More

We have been going to Casa Jaramillo for years and we don't even bother to take a menu. Just order the Enchiladas Rancheras (the house special i think) a few extra flour tortillas and a pepsi and you're set. Truly unique flavor (heavy on the avocado) - excellent. Authentic 1960's mexican restaurant atmosphere, clean, friendly service - just awsome.

It doesn't get any better than this for tipico Mexican. They treat you like family. You have to try anything and everything with their green sauce. Amazing roasted flavors.

My family and I drove through Ontario from Boise on our way to Portland, OR. We stopped in Ontario because we were hungry and saw Casa Jaramillo, which turned out to be delicious. The food was hot (temperature), and obviously fresh. The Chili Verde (green Mexican sauce) is outstanding, and has the perfect spices. Highly recommended if you like authentic... More

Our family (6 of us) ate lunch here. We were the only ones for a while then 2 more customers came. Server was friendly, the place was clean. The food was just average. My chile verde burrito had way too much black pepper. I was disappointed with the salsa served in mini ramekins not deep enough to dip a chip... More

Passing through Ontario, read the good reviews, and gave it a try. The food was superb! I had, and thoroughly enjoyed, the chile verde burrito. My wife had the carne asada and was equally impressed. Our server was wonderfully welcoming and the black velvet artwork was a visual treat. Highly recommended.
