Our family of 7 recently visited on a busy weekday night. We were immediately offered a table in the very back room, but opted to wait 10 minutes for a table in the much nicer main room (it's prettier and has more character). The waiter and the waiter's assistant were very helpful in describing the menu and answering questions. When the food arrived, it was excellent. One person had poblano soup which he said was superb. I had the green corn chicken enchildas which have always been excellent... the tomatillo sauce is one of the best around. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their meals as well. This restaurant has been at this location for over 25 years and despite the recession has always maintained a healthy business.... a definite favorite among locals.
El Jarro never dissapoints, whether you are looking for a light meal or a real dig in you can find it here. Their food is so authentic and very fresh, from ceviche to cabrito it's delish. They amaze me with their way of accomodating large groups at the last minute on a very busy friday night. If you've never tried El Jarro you are missing a real treat!
love the shrimp and steak special. Their cabrito is also flavorful and well portioned. Their salsa is fresh and has that tartness from lime juice i love. (not like the Condensed Tomato Soup salsa that is everywhere in S.A.) Light/thin chips are served as a starter. Again, much better than many heavy, thick waffle type tortilla chips that are common here. Their Flash fried spinach is wonderful. Fresh home made tortillas and quality pescado. There is a good variety on the menu and there are several dishes that display a true "Mexico" mexican flavor, as opposed to a Tex-mex flavor. Their Arturo's Margarita is my favorite. it's very strong both in heat and lime tartness- not sweet at all.
We drive an hour round trip every month to eat here. I have the house margarita on the rocks and my husband has the Arturos margarita (no sugar/mixer). The botana platter with black bean nachos, Chicken and beef skewers, and chicken flautas is awesome. The special salad with feta is great too. Live music and dancing on weekend nights
I've been going to Arturo's since about 1984. The food is excellent. The house margaritas are very good (tart). When the Arturo's (name of one top shelf margarita) are made correctly they are the best margaritas I've ever had.
Food is always great, margaritas are awesome (especially top shelf :) Family owned, we love it and go often!
Buffet is outstanding. Service is great. But the magaritas are the best yet!!!!!!
I WAS THERE LAST THURSDAY WITH SOME FRIENDS, THE FOOD AND COMPANY WAS EXCELLENT !
The enchiladas nortenas were tasty for me since they were something a little different
