Nice tasty fajitas and burittos kept the family happy and cocktail specials kept the adults happy. Quite a bit of wasted food tho as portions were big for us.

Stopped on our way home one evening to try out the one downtown. Our usual is the Columbia location or occasionally Twain Harte. Great Chips, super crispy ( I live for great chips!) which I demand. Very young Waitress was also very good and attentive. I ate the Chile Relleno and loved it. Paul got a giant burrito- bean and... More

Made a stop here based on other reviews. The food was good. I will have to return and try one of their specialties. The staff was above and beyond; extremely attentive, friendly, and appeared to be happy to be working at this restaurant. The staff was so pleasant that the food could have been bad and I would still give... More

Good Mexican food at reasonable prices. Nice decor with outside seating available. It's easy to find as it is right on Washington Street in downtown Sonora.

For some reason, while I have eaten at other locations of this chain, never stopped in to this location before. Several locals have recommended it, so decided to give it a try. Found their garden to be a very pleasant dining atmosphere. While waiting for a friend, the waitress followed up on several queries I had about ingredients my spouse... More

We have eaten in quite a few Mexican restaurants and this is definitely the best. The chips and salsa were yummy (very hot,the way we like it!) The food was just superb. From the delicious beans to the flavour packed stir fried veggies- we just devoured every bit of that food! The veggie fajitas were fantastic! We also had a... More

We have visited a few El Jardin's and have not been disappointed. Love the high back booths, you kind of feel like you have your own private little area. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, wonderful tasty Mexican food! Love the tortilla chips too, both corn and flour. You don't find that everywhere!! Their green sauce is soooo good!!

We love this place. It has good food, great margarita's and hand-made chips. If you go, try the mole, it's a real treat.
