I expected too much from this restaurant. I had the cheese enchiladas with red sauce. It was okay not as amazing as I thought. Service was pretty great she was attentive and sweet.

My roommate celebrated her 100th birthday and wanted El Jardin. The family placed individual orders and all (20 orders) were correct!! I was impressed 🤗 The food was great, their chili rellanos are to die for, really yummy! Condiments were included.
