This is just average Mexican. I did grow up along the Mexican border, so my standards are pretty high. I found the food to be rather bland--just adding jalapeño does not do it. The House Margarita was literally one of the worst I've ever had--again very bland and seemingly lacking in Tequila. They did have Negra Modelo (my favorite Mexican... More

Located in the Derby neighborhood of Commerce City, you will find El Jardin. Everything looks delicious here. I can only judge the cheese or chicken enchiladas. I live the way they prepare the corn tortillas before they roll them full of either cheese and onions or chicken and onions. Their enchilada sauce is to die for! Everyone I have ever... More

Great meal. Fantastic cocktail, the Slackerita. We had the ground beef and onion enchilada and bean and chicirone burrito. Yummy!

Had a great mango margarita and meal at the bar while on vacation! The taco platter was also amazing!! The salsa that comes with the meal was tangy and perfectly fresh. The "special beer" was suggested it was like a tomato beer, but was way too spicy. The bartender gladly replaced my drink! Great service and food!

We tried the top ten Mexican restaurants after golf and discovered a gem. The food was beyond expectations and the service was exceptional from Denize. Ordered the Pork Carnitas Tacos and was amazed with the freshness ans smokey flavor. The Re-fried Beans had a buttery taste and were excellent as well as the guacamole. This was the best Mexican food... More

We came in from Houston and after a few days, we're craving good Mexican food. I had my doubts but found this joint. The food was very authentic and everyone enjoyed enchiladas and Carne Asada. I had the green chili medium spice. Plenty hot and lean good pork. Margaritas were the only disappointment. Good service.

Charming and clean decor, Very friendly host and waitress. One of the best service teams we have had. Even though we went during a busy time, we were seated quickly. Drinks and free chips and salsa were on our table within a couple minutes. Our food was prepared in a very timely manner. Good sized portions, but more important, excellent... More
