There is no surprise, you want to have Mexican food? then you are at the right place. There are two of them, one in Sonora, one in Columbia. Both places have nice outdoor dinning area. Close early in the evening so do not linger around too long if you plan to go there.

I've been to this restaurant numerous times over the years. I know the owners. This restaurant never ceases to amaze. The food is wonderful. The service is great. It CAN be busy on the holidays or ski weekends. But it's worth the wait.

While visiting family in Twain Harte we decided to try the only Mexican restaurant in town. We walked in and it was empty but we stood waiting for someone to seat us per the sign posted. After what felt like an eternity we got seated at a window table but had to move due to all the flies at that... More

The food is good if you want fresh Mexican. Plenty of seating and service is good as well. Prices are okay. Overall it's a good place if you're craving Mexican food.

Good good, service excellent! We got there early before the rest of our party and the servers were great in making sure we were happy and taken care of before our party finally arrived.

I've eaten at this establishment 10 times over the past five years. They bat about 80% okay with me, thats to say two out of the 10 meals were poor, and 8 were good. the booze remains the same which is the saving grace.

No spice or flavor here.....I'm not willing to waste my time on giving this resturant a review. That should say something....

I'm a bit confused ... I could have sworn this restaurant is called "El Jardin" but Yelp insists that it's called La Morenita. Given the photos and the address, I'm pretty sure it's the same place. Okay, under the premise that I'm reviewing the correct restaurant ... here's my review. We stopped here for dinner on a Presidents Day weekend.... More

My apologies to the polite and friendly gentleman/owner(?) but we had a terrible take-out meal here. 2 top shelf margaritas while we waited for our 2 soups and a taco salad to take out to our place 5 minutes away. The margaritas were terrible and the tortilla soup, La Compuesta chicken soup and taco salad was truly the worst ever.... More
