“Wonderful, casual place to eat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

A wonderful place in the Mother Lode. The atmosphere is casual and cozy. Children welcomed. I usually have the Toquitos with chicken which I really enjoy, but you can also have it with steak. The Tortilla soup is also very good, and large portion. Their other items on the menu are also very good. They also have some outdoor seating that is dog friendly.

“We like spicy and this isn't”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

This food was just too bland - tomato sauce on the enchiladas - not a chili in sight and no other spices that I discern either. There are not a lot of choices in Twain Harte and we mistakenly chose this! Don't if you enjoy Tex-Mex or New Mexican styles.

“Best Mexican Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Best Mexican Restaurant in the uphill Tuolumne County area. In the County only El Jardin in Sonora is on the same par. Try a chicken la parilla, carne asada, carnitas, mole, etc. Great chips & salsa, outdoor dining, the best.

“The best gucamole on earth”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Get the appeitizer with the guacamole, they are extremely generous so if it is not a crowd then just get the 1/2 order! It is huge! It is also GREAT. I just got the chicken burrito and it was tender and moist, not dry. I usually get the chilli relleno and love that. Pretty reasonable prices and great service. They get to you quickly and you can have parties at the back room without a lot of bother.

“Yummy Mexican food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012 via mobile

This is a sister restaurant to many other great El Jardine and the old La Morenita. The food is great and if your in the mood for Mexican food, this is the spot in Twain Harte! My favorite, the salsa with cabbage and the enchiladas with verde sauce.
