I read the reviews for this place so I was prepared to 'kill 'em with kindness' if necessary. I quickly learned that not even kindness was effective. Oh well, I, too, felt as though I was an imposition, but the food was delicious. I found...More

Close to real taste of ol mexico. Missed on a couple of marks. The salsa was non descript, could have used a little heat. The rest of the meal was great. Price is on target.

The food was really very, very good. You order at the counter then take it to your table. The staff was not real friendly, we felt we were being stared at the whole time. I think the next time we will order it to go.

We stopped by at lunchtime because of the TripAdvisor reviews- we love hole in the wall local places! There were just a handful of cars in the lot, and about half a dozen people inside. We approached the counter to order, and the man standing...More

Interior is small with the kitchen entirely visible. A constant stream of phone in orders at meal times can make ordering a bit slow and wait times if eating in. Still we like to eat here for the good Mexican food they serve.

Traveling through this area, and found this place on trip advisor with high reviews. The outside of the restaurant could sure use some "curb appeal "!! Blankets as curtains and a ripped banner was not very inviting.. Inside, we where welcomed by very friendly people....More

I'm giving El Jacalito four stars because the food is great. To receive five it would have to be perfect and perfect is a high bar. Don't judge this place by the outside. Parking lot is not great, lawn is not manicured, and the building...More

Amazing flavor. Not "Americanized." Modestly priced. Small menu. I had selected an item for lunch from the menu, and then I saw the chicken with mole sauce being served. It look sumptuous. I ordered it. The chicken was moist and tender, the best I have...More
