We met friends here for dinner. Food was excellent with many choices. Booths were a little cramped but adequate. Service was so-so, but adequate. House wine was just so-so.

We were seated quickly, drink orders were taken and our glasses never went empty. The food was correct, hot, and delicious. After we finished eating we sat for awhile and chatted. The atmosphere was wonderful. We would definitely eat here again.

This restaurant was recommended. Atmosphere was good and I noticed quite a few of the patrons were Mexican. The food was authentic, fresh, and hot. The service was also very good.

We love, love, love El Jaripeo!!! The food is amazing. The only thing better than their chori-pollo is their chori-pollo reheated the next day. Their white salsa is also delicious. Definitely the best place to get Mexican food in Culpeper...or pretty much anywhere!
