It generally gets harder and harder to find good Mexican food when on the road. This restaurant has good food. The restaurant style is festive, with lots of color. The menu is big and there are a lot of options. The chips and salsa are better than most Mexican Restaurants I've been to in the last year. The fajitas are... More

Waitress makes you wait a bit to have you seated down.. when you are the only table/people. The food was pretty good except it had hard pieces of corn on the rice. The food was missing flavor.

The service is the best ive ever seen. You are seated FAST. Drinks FAST. And they dont like to let you wait. It is decorated nice and the menu is HUGE!!!! Plenty to pick from but anything you pick is gonna be awesome. A hidden gem for sure. It should have a higher rating!!! Great margaritas!

Mexican is my favorite food and I loved El Jarrito! Fresh guacamole made at our table - can't beat that. Large portions cooked just right. I had the chicken flautas and they were excellent. We enjoyed our leftovers the next day :). The service was good and the over-the-top decor makes for a festive environment. I will visit again the... More

When I first pulled up I wasn't sure if they were even open. On a Saturday night at 8:45 p.m you would think more than two cars would be in the parking lot. I had to walk in to make sure they were open while my family stayed in the car, no signs or times on the door to let... More

El Jarrito's is a fun place to eat. The décor is really decorated Mexican style and the food is very good. The service is good and friendly and the prices are reasonable. They have a variety of choices on the menu to choose. I would highly recommend El Jarrito's for good Mexican food..

Service was a little slow at first. Table was dirty. Waitor was nice. Food was decent but not amazing. Nothing against these people, they were kind. But it really was just average food like you'd get in any mexican restaurant. Bill came out to 70 bucks for 4 of us.
