Hungry, looking for a good meal at a solid price - head to el Jakal. Have been several times and continue to return because the food is fresh, service is good and price can not be beat.

I got the coconut shrimp plate and it was huge! The restaraunt cat is adorable.(he likes shrimp tails!) Also got a chicken taco to go and that was really tasty. On the north end, so a little quieter and easy to get a seat.

We heard about El Jakal from reading Trip Advisor reviews, and knew in advance that they have several vegetarian options, giving the two of us a better selection. One of us had veggie tacos followed by the cauliflower ceviche, and the other of us had...More
