Food is good except for the chips and salsa. The chips are thick and not crispy and the salsa is watery. The waiter was snooty and acted like he was doing us a favor by stopping by our table. Never offered any beverage other than the water which went dry long before any refill came. They were not that busy... More

Have been coming here for years. Now only one time a year when we are back in town. Some of it is just nostalgia but we have many fond memories. The enchiladas and the soups are great!

Not sure how to describe this "Mexican" restaurant. The only place to compare is Hugo's in Houston. In a word,El Jarro is outstanding. It is soooo nice in many respects. The service is impeccable. The menu is excellent. And the make a mean margarita. I had "Susie's Surprise" - carnita tacos very well presented with a mango avocado sauce. The... More

The food is amazing. Everything I have ever ordered has been delicious. The margaritas are also very good. It is a family owned business, so everything is prepared with pride. The tortillas are prepared fresh right in the middle of the restaurant. It gets crowded on the weekends. There is a live band on Friday and Saturdays nights. Great place... More

This was a recommendation for us so we tried it. The food was ample but spicy. The margarita was the worst I ever had. They had a live music but disco music in a Mexican restaurant seemed a bit odd to me. Prices were a bit high. The restaurant was crowded and tables were very close to one another.

For 30 years Friday night has been our historically Mexican night out for food. Being full-time travelers, this means we have sampled Mexican food all across the country. This place is very close to our sisters house, and she recommended it. We were very pleasantly surprised, although it was jam packed , We got seated pretty quickly, the service was... More
