For someone who eats tacos all the time I for one was not impressed. Their American tacos do not even come with cheese. Taco city where I'm from American tacos have cheese. And their taco tortillas are small. I for one was not impressed not to mention no lime for tacos. My order was take out or I would've complained.... More

I've tried this place a few times in the last 8 years. The same result each time. The employees are very friendly. The facility is clean. The food is not very authentic or flavorful.

Best Mexican meal we have had in a long time! My 3,6 and 9 year olds all enjoyed their meals and had left overs! My kids are all big eaters so for them all to have leftovers off the kids menu that is incredible and their meals were only $4 each! My husband who is pretty picky about his Mexican... More

This is our favorite place to eat Mexican. Homemade tortillas are delicious. The waitstaff is really great. The rice and beans can be a bit salty. My husband always has the El Jardin combo. Loves it

The restaurant is not consistent in its food. Once we go the chicken is great white meat, the next it's gnarly dark meat. I will go again, it is not my first choice.

Out of all of the Mexican places in JVL, this one still remains my favorite. The Chimichangas are deep fried, just like I like. Other places don't fry them up and they come soggy - the ones here are not soggy. Salsa is fresh and delicious, service is always fast, and there are usually A LOT of Mexican families here,... More

Visited today for a late lunch today when passing through the area. I had the Chicken Burrito Suizo and the hubs had 3 soft shell tacos. My food was rather bland and the cheese sauce on top cold. I ordered a side of sour cream and cheese dipping sauce and put that on the burrito which improved the taste a... More
