Tastes good, looks entertaining, and has a kids play area. I really like El Jarrito. Go check it out.

We always get take out for big family dinners and the food is very good... The owner works very hard and is usually there ensuring the quality...

This was my go to Tex Mex place back when it was located in the little shopping center on Mason across the street from it's current location. When they moved, I followed but was dissapointed with the food and service so I took my business elsewhere for a while, but I have to say that whatever growing pains they were experiencing back then have gone away and they have their mojo back.

The great food, fast friendly service, not to mention some of the best top shelf margarita's in town have me hooked once again!

Try the El Jarrito steak, or the fajitas trio (beef, chicken , shrimp) the portians are HUGE but you can't stop yourself because it is so damn good!

Lunch on a Saturday.
The service was very attentive. But, it wasn't that busy.
The food was ok. But a bit Americanized. If you are looking for something more authentic, it won't be found here.
Portion sizes were ok.
A little pricey for Mexican food, $65 for three of us for lunch, with only two house margaritas!
It was ok, but with all of the options available in this area for Mexican food, not sure I would go back.
