“Glad we stopped for dinner!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

Stayed in Barstow on our road trip vacation and decided we were hungry for Mexican food. Our motel was in walking distance and the owners of the motel said Jenny's was fairly new but have heard good comments about the restaurant. Jenny greeted us warmly at the entrance door and our waitress was very attentive. Immediately brought out chips with 2 salsas and pico de gallo. Very tasty and we were given more without asking. Husband had the Carne Asada enchiladas and I had cheese enchiladas. Very tasty! Overall great dinner! You can tell this little restaurant building has been here for sometime. (it's right on historic Route 66). We were there on a Sunday, and when we arrived we were the only customers however Jenny's was pretty full of diners by the time we finished. Good sign for a Sunday evening in October in Barstow.

“Great food, a local gem”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

We were traveling through Barstow and the hotel staff at Roadway Inn recommended Jenny's since we asked for something within walking distance. It was great! The staff was very friendly and it was good food and moderately priced. A nice change from some of our other "road trip" restaurant experiences. A lot of the locals were eating there so we figured it would be good when we first walked in and weren't dissapointed.

“great service, ok food”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Barstow doesn't offer a lot of options but I like to visit local restaurants when I am traveling. I picked Jenny's based on another review recommending the steak fajitas. The service was great and the wait staff was very friendly. The building exterior is in rough shape. The fajitas were fair. The sides were similar to every other "authentic" mexican restaurant that I have visited. However, the steak was over cooked to the point of being rubbery. I had a difficult time chewing it, it had the consistency of overcook calamari.

“Wow! A diamond in the rough”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

The outside of the building is rough. It is in need of a paint job. But what is inside is GREAT food, EXCELLENT customer service and fresh food. We loooove Mexican and found some if the best fish tacos we have ever had. We hope then when you are passing through Barstow you will visit this great family restaurant.
