Jennys has the best chicken and beef Chimichangas I've ever had here in southern California. They have super friendly staff and the food is always delicious!

very close to the place where we stayed and had the best food on our road trip to Utah. Relatively cheap and delicious food.

Good Mexican food - right on Route 66 in Barstow. Good selection of Mexican dishes, very tasty, very reasonable prices. Very attentive wait staff - this place is clearly a favorite with the locals. Nothing fancy, just good. I will happily eat here again. Loved the fresh salsa and spicy sauce they serve at the table with warm chips. Even... More

Loved the food here and this place is the reason why we always stay at the hotel next door. Convenient and easy to get food and go back to our room.

WOW & AMAZING!!!!!!! We love this place. Jenny & her Team always treat you like Familia. The food is plentiful, tasty & is hot. You are allowed to deviate from the menu & it really is made with love💖💯. One of many trips -- great for date night & family gatherings.

recommended by the Old Route 66 Motel host. Food was far better than we expected, being in Barstow. I'm diabetic so corn tacos are out. She kindly made my tacos with flour tortillas. Chicken was well cooked, moist and succulent. Re fried beans appeared to be made in house, not canned. Not normal to find a really good place to... More

Great place, I only wish that I had found it earlier in my trip. The food is mainly authentic Mexican and the staff are very friendly. I was a solo traveler staying in a local motel, so eating alone in a strange restaurant can be daunting. When I inquired if there was anything on the menu I could get to... More

Coming off a long drive in to Barstow, driving down the main boulevard past all of the fast food. Last choices: Denny's or Jenny's. So glad we took a chance. The place was packed (at 8 pm on a Tuesday) with locals. Mostly Latino families. The place was like a diner with the servers conversing in Spanish and English with... More

We ate in this restaurant when we stopped in Barstow for an overnight stop. We chose it after looking at reviews and also we could walk to it from the California Inn. We did heed the warnings about portion size so did ask the server about it. I had a burrito with rice and beans and my wife had an... More

You would be better off going to a Del Taco in this town, it's fresh and good. This place is not all that great.
