“El Jaripeo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

This place is packed on the weekends. The food is really good. However, due to the big open room......it gets extremely noisy! If you go there frequently enough....the staff recognizes you and are very friendly.

“Service great, food not so good.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012 via mobile

We were in town for the Indy 500. Decided to go here for what had been reviewed as good food. Found the staff as very friendly but the food not so good. Had a tamale that was mainly masa and not much anything else. The taco was on par with Taco Bell. Also, it was very hot and it felt like the A/C was barely working. If I lived here it would be doubtful if I would eat here again.

“Great Mexican Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2011

We ate here for lunch on a Sunday and had a great meal. Fantastic salsa, fantastic food. Plenty of room for large groups. Wait staff was super friendly, helpful, patient, and efficient.

Wide variety of offerings on menu, including some American fare basics like chicken nuggets and fries (kids menu).
